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

By Tom Spurgeon

* this nice person sent me a link to their Kickstarter, a comic called GYR. Seems pretty straight-forward to me. The nice thing is when you send one of these long-running campaigns I can cut and paste it and run it on multiple column days.

image* this would be a good time to buy some JR Williams original art, if you're so inclined. JR's art is great -- his is the first art I bought when I moved to Seattle back in '94.

* a Jesse Reklaw-related crowd-funder? Yes.

* Frank Cho will take a Liberty Meadows project to crowd-funding in September.

* here's one from I think Turkey with artists from all around the world involved.

* the Tripwire crowd-funder is ongoing.

* Crowd-funding was a significant subject of this panel at WonderCon.

* Reading Frenzy isn't a comics store as much as it is a 'zine and small-publications shop, but I certainly bought comics and comics-related things there when I lived in the Pacific Northwest and I generally found it a swell place to go. Here's a crowd-funder they're doing. It's hard to imagine Portland without it.

* I totally missed that Radio Comix had a fundraiser because of an accounting snafu. They didn't need my help.

* the Caravan of Comics people are back at again.

* the Roman Dirge hospital-bills effort remains ongoing, while this post is still at the top of Peter David's site.

* this Australia/New Zealand fundraiser is heading into its final hours.

* finally, Jason Lutes wrote me about this interesting-looking project for which he's seeking crowd-funding. I might try to run this link again, but I thought it was interesting for a couple of reasons: one, there haven't been a ton of crowd-funder run by cartoonists of Lutes' caliber and generational profile; two, I think we could see a point where we have a lot of people running secondary projects through crowd-funding mechanisms.
