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

By Tom Spurgeon

* this is something a bit different: a magazine with free content that already has a track record of publishing is doing a crowd-funder to keep going: Off-Registration.

* here's one artist's commissions information. Many artists you enjoy will have something similar available through their on-line presence, and many can use the work.

* the Gahan Wilson movie kickstarter is getting near that halfway point where it's rumored things start to build momentum on crowd-funders like these. Of course, by the time this post rolls out, it might be on the other side of that halfway point.

* Fort Wayne's Appleseed convention is trying to raise about $8000. I like Fort Wayne; it's one of those cities that never gets talked about... I'm not sure about a comics tradition there. I went to a store the day Reagan was shot, so they had some people buying comics back then. Grass Green lived there... I'm sure there are others.

* finally, you could buy some stuff from J. Chris Campbell. He hasn't asked for any special consideration and for all I know the guy owns a solid gold car, but that art is cute.
