Comics' Giving Heart -- People, Projects In Need Of Funding

image* the big one this morning is that comics pros and fans are raising money to be put to the direct use of a proper burial for the late writer Robert Washington. He was one of the main writing cogs of the Milestone line, and had experienced some hard luck in recent years. Colleen Doran has the most to-the-point summary of the situation and the appropriate links available right here. Please join me in considering a small donation.

* while we're still on people rather than projects, it looks like the Oliver Nome fundraiser is inching towards its goal, with a lot of time remaining. That doesn't mean that it's guaranteed they'll get there or that they wouldn't prefer to get there a bit early.

* the hugely successful and much-watched Sullivan's Sluggers kickstarter is more than past its goal and keep moving the goal posts in a good way. One of the things that people have enjoyed about it -- and I think this is something webcomics people have done in the past -- is that the more money raise the more editions of the book become possible. There's now a charity component, too, with some money going to Hero Initiative. So you might want to at least take a look at the James Stokoe/Mark Andrew Smith project and check out what they're doing if not get a copy of the book.

* the Cerebus-related fundraiser has about two weeks left and is super-funded.

* I haven't mentioned the Dylan Meconis Library fundraiser yet, and the triple-headed nature of that one has a lot of folks that watch the fundraisers intrigued.

* Lea Hernandez's kickstarter has reached the 25 percent plateau and pushed a bit past it.

* finally, the World War 3 people are having an art auction on Monday the 26th.
