By Request Extra: Nix Comics T-Shirt Fundraiser

Nix Comics is one of my local comics publishers here in Columbus, so feel free to consider this corrupted, glad-handing nonsense, but I was struck by its publisher Ken Eppstein selling t-shirts as a fundraiser -- for both the publisher and the artist.

One side element to fundraising culture that we're likely to see moving forward is a lot more sales with targeted outcomes. It just makes sense as a way to apply values developed via that aspect of comics, and my guess is that in some cases it will be a way organizations or artists charge for material that might, if left untethered, result in raised eyebrows more than enthusiastic responses.

None of that is the case here, though. This is very straight-forward!
