Comics By Request: People, Projects In Need Of Funding
By Tom Spurgeon
* this Cartozia Tales crowd-funder
seems fairly ambitious in terms of the gut-check, look-at-the-amount-being raised levels, although you know the work will be completed and given the tie-in that a lot of those folks have to the webcomics world that's not a major amount of money at all. That was also the one that jumped out at me this week as a crowd-funder that might naturally appeal to the specific CR
* the cartoonist and publisher Zack Soto announced last week
he could use a little sales attention via his on-line shop.
* I'm always a little curious about publishers running crowd-funders because I feel that providing capital is one of the traditional roles of a publisher, but these folks were nice enough to send me their crowd-funding information
, and you shouldn't let me being crabby stop you from checking out their work.
* a couple of familiar names on the IndieGoGo side of things: small-press icon Matt Feazell
; the longtime comic book store Golden Apple
* finally, the Sabre
project spotlighted here last week -- Don McGregor working with Trevor Von Eeden -- is at that crucial point where around 1/3 of the money has been raised. I always think that 30 to 50 percent level is the key level, but that's more a feel thing than anything research-based. Or even any-kind-of-real-information based.
