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.

* I'm not sure how far along it is at this point -- I'm doing this link back in March -- but a Jason Lutes crowd-funder intrigued me enough to run links in a few columns 1 2 3 and I don't do that a whole lot.

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

* Rob Kirby suggested this already-successful crowd-funder might be of interest to folks.

* Henry Chamberlain has a crowd-funder going here; he says it's his first, but not likely his last.

* this international effort from Turkey will end its run on Kickstarter by the time of next week's column.

* finally, I think this is the last time I can run the Tripwire crowd-funder.
