Comics By Request: People, Projects In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

This site is very behind on processing e-mails with requests for coverage in columns like this one. My apologies, and I will try to catch up sooner rather than later.

* the cartoonist and comics educator Meredith Gran is accepting pre-orders in the hopes of facilitating the funding of her new Octopus Pie book.

* Josh Bayer has a kickstarter going for the fourth volume of his Suspect Device anthology. There are a couple of laughs in the accompanying video.

* the Kenosha Festival of Cartooning is probably around 90 percent the morning this post rolls out, and is heading into its final days. They get to keep the money no matter how this turns out, but the fee is smaller if they meet their goal -- thus, more money.

* the Seth Kushner and Friends project Schmuck could use some attention going into its last days, but looks a firm bet to make it.

* the Study Group crowd-funder looks well on its way with ample time remaining, but it could still use some help to meet that initial goal.

* we've also featured this Winsor McCay project a few times; that one will end soon, too.

* the Scott Thompson-directed Danny Husk sequel has a pretty long distance to travel, but I know that there are a several people that liked the first one that likely haven't heard about this project yet.

* just a couple of days left on the Table Titans one, which has been in its stretch goals phase for a while. This latest Smut Peddler anthology volume got to that first goal super-quickly, too.

* finally, Jason Shiga has a Patreon page up. People should as a matter of reflex support whatever Jason Shiga does.
