Comics By Request: People, Projects In Need Of Funding

* the Doug Wright Awards crowd-funder continues. I am certain that money would be well-spent given that award program's pedigree. Also, the incentives are uniquely crafted.

* David Brothers recommends three crowd-funders.

* the latest Batton Lash/Supernatural Law crowd-funder is nearing the halfway point. I would imagine they would very much welcome becoming a regular, successful presence on crowd-funding sites in terms of getting their books out there, like Studio Foglio has become.

* here's are some of the crowd-funders we've been following, randomly presented: an outside project for Tom Toles, Just Another Sheep, Unfinished City, House Party, Noir City #2.

* I am always interested in projects that are focused on retail stores rather than on publishing projects. That seems to me a tough road, though, and not the natural match up mechanism to project that publishing offers. I would imagine that over the next few years we'll also see more crowdfunders related to library collections.

* this is wholly impressive.

* last few days to help out Study Group.

* Craig McKenney is looking for support in taking a shot at finishing The Brontes: Infernal Angria.

* always enjoy a modest crowd-funder, and a Ditko crowd-funder, so both together is doubly enjoyable.

* this is great subject matter for a graphic novel, although it looks to have struggled a bit so far in terms of garnering interest. Did you know there's a photo of Teddy Roosevelt watching the procession?

* finally, it's hard for me to imagine something much cooler than a customer pet portrait from Laura Park, except maybe one where the proceeds go to a good cause.
