Comics' Giving Heart: People, Projects In Need Of Funding
* great survivor of the tectonic shifts in comics coverage Tripwire has launched its fundraising campaign for a 20th anniversary book
. I'm always happy to see Joel Meadows at shows, and I'm happy to see him in the video here. Meadows also comments on the occasion in a blog post here
* here's a kickstarter project of the "new talent" variety: Prairie City Response
* I totally missed this Kickstarter project
on behalf of the Daisy Kutter
material; fortunately, it seems as if I'm the only one who missed it.
* not comics: I hope for as long as it lasts you'll forgive me the weekly indulgence of drawing attention to my brother's kickstarter project for a short film
; Whit is this site's primary photographer -- he does the non-terrible photos.
* is there anyone out there with a clear understanding of the charitable efforts on behalf of the late, great Tony DeZuniga, hopefully from an insider's point of view? I've been e-mailed a question or two and
* finally, I'll leave this week with a reminder that the Hero Initiative and other comics-related charities are happily processing your checks and on-line donations if you'd wish to leave on in this period where the Avengers
movie is supplying solid-gold shoes money to people that don't need it as desperately as the people who benefit from those charities. I wrote about that here
. You're not going to "win comics" by donating, you're not going to see an outcome in terms of policy you want because you threw someone ten bucks. But a donation is worth considering because a donation can do some good, and it's nice to be reminded of that.
