Comics By Request: People, Projects In Need Of Funding
By Tom Spurgeon
* they are raising money for a free comics festival in Durham, North Carolina
. Those good men Robert Clough and Eric Knisley are involved. You can follow the show's progress on Facebook here
, look at the site here
, follow them on twitter here
, and pay attention to their tumblr here
. That's a nice part of the country, and that city specifically is coming around as a general arts/culture center after years as "just" a college town. Clough introduces it to readers of his blog here
* Joseph Hughes endorses
a crowd-funding effort from Sanford Greene.
* another Columbus player
* I wasn't aware that you could do pre-publicity for a crowd-funding campaign
* T. Edward Bak's Wild Man tour
could still use some supporters; I'd like to see that one happen.
* I like one of these three things
. Not crime.
* two projects
about comedy are struggling a bit. I doubt that means anything, I just noticed it. I wish both of them luck with a strong finish.
* Rick Geary
, Bo Hampton
and Nick Bertozzi
are the established industry names with crowd-funders going. The Bertozzi could get over the finish line as early as today if a few people were to jump on it.
* totally missed an ABQ con crowd-funding its way into existence
. The Southwest seems to have a lot of small conventions right now. You also don't see a ton of archival projects
being done this way.
* finally, congratulations to Team Yeti Press
