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

By Tom Spurgeon

image* this is pretty cool: Matthew Thurber is offering a chance to become a character in Infomaniacs as a way of raising funds.

* Kathleen David wrote a few days back that a donation button would be up today if you want to toss some money the way of writer Peter David, currently rehabbing from a late-year stroke. That might be worth checking. You can poke around on there more generally for advice on things to buy that will add some heft to the David Family wallet to help them negotiate tough days ahead.

* here's a documentary about MAD seeking crowdfunding that Des Devlin brought to my attention.

* I'm not sure that anything really leaps out at me from the staff-picks page at Kickstarter, but I'm sure all projects like those represent a dream for someone, creator or reader.

* here's one via IndieGoGo from Mark Oakley that's rounding into its final few days.

* finally, I'm always interested in the relative novelty of someone raising money for something comics-related that isn't a comic, although I'm not connected to the part of the funnybook world that is covered by such things so I couldn't tell you if there's an obvious need for a site like that or not.

I hope that you'll consider Given how they break down proportionally, I'm a bit more interested in charitable activities directed at comics causes and people than I am crowd-funding, but I want to hear about them all.
