Go, Read: Russ Maheras On Visiting Steve Ditko

Here. I'm not sure it's our healthiest collective impulse to want to know this much about the late Hall Of Fame cartoonist's studio arrangement, but I imagine this will satisfy many people's curiosity.

Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* the Gahan Wilson health needs crowdfunder is halfway to its initial ask.

* today is the last day of submissions for this year's Creators For Creators grant. That's a good program, with sterling intentions.

* the great Shaenon Garrity and Skin Horse co-creator Jeffrey Wells were able to meet their initial goals on their latest in a measurement of hours, not days. Let the bonus rewards begin.

* finally: twelve days to help out Birdcage Bottom Books with its current crowdfunder.

Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Derf is quietly one of the reliable on-line comics content finders going.

* the late Flo Steinberg remembered on what would have been her 80th birthday.

* speaking of Derf, one thing I learned from him is the Cleveland Plain-Dealer goes from a skeleton crew to like three bones and a chunk of cartilage. I've been following the collapse of the newspaper industry from its 2008 initial free fall into now, and it really looks like the complete and final end of something. There's a need for community news-papering maybe more than ever before, but no ability to get there and no appetite for it that might push a bunch over the top. I wonder how long most of them will hang on, and what will take the place of most.

* this is a vicious cycle even by the general standard of vicious cycles. You can break it, though.

* finally: Noah Van Sciver shows love for Michael Dougan. I hope someone will collect his late '80s/early '90s comics one day. That's a great abebooks purchase in the meantime.
