Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

* money to save retail establishments is a traditionally rough go on the social media driven sites, but this gofundme seems off to a better than average start. As always, I wish anyone that feels a need the best of luck in not feeling that way.

* this Spike Trotman project is safely paid for, but has several hours left for those that would like to be involved.

* finally, comics industry veteran Shelly Bond has an interesting-sounding project going. That is a reasonably significant ask for a publishing project according to my experience, but that looks like appealing subject matter.

Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Rob Clough on Threadbare. Todd Klein on that beautiful Earthsea collection with which Charles Vess was involved. Alex Hoffman on Trans Girls Hit The Town. Johanna Draper Carlson on Sanity & Tallulah.

* here are Alison Wilgus' TCJ diaries in one place.

* Wall Street Journal looks at graphic novel for younger readers.

* good on Art Spiegelman pulling a piece of political commentary from an essay he was commissioned to write. It will have a longer life in this form than if it had run in its original form. I've yet to catch up to the piece, but want to; Spiegelman's a good writer on comics and culture.

* finally, Wendy Browne talks to Kieron Gillen. Nicholas Burman talks to Simon Grennan.
