Comics By Request -- People, Projects In Need Of Funding

imageBy Tom Spurgeon

* one of the first people I met in Seattle when I started working in comics, K. Thor Jensen, has a crowd-funder going. Jensen was like eight at the time I met him, I think.

* this project by two of the best creators of mainstream-oriented kids comics is already funded and should be. Those creators have a long and distinguished history of making quality comics that a lot of people have enjoyed. I'm listing it here because I think I know a number of people that will want to order the resulting work.

* Jeremy Baum has a crowd-funder going for an anthology that features a bunch of international work. It's very modestly conceived, which I like -- the funding end, not the comics.

* not comics: Ralph Bakshi's Kickstarter continues.

* Jim Lawson's crowd-funder continues at a nice clip.

* there are still posts up on how you might assist with the recovery of the writer Peter David, who suffered a stroke at the end of 2012, here and here.
