Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* a nice-seeming, seemingly young person named Ryan Burke wrote in to ask for coverage consideration on his forthcoming work. It looks like a young person's work, anyway, but there's always something appeal about these comics where people are just going for it as best they know how. That's a medium-level ask, and not a slam dunk at all. I hope Mr. Burke gets to do what he wants to do. There are dozens of people like him on these sites if you poke around.

* Sam Henderson wrote in to say that he is working on a big new project through his Patreon site, a site that could use your support. Henderson's the kind of comics talent that would seem to benefit most from direct support, and I hope to figure out my ability to start doing more of that myself for cartoonist like him. It wouldn't hurt things at all if you preceded me.

* here are some of the more familiar names in the middle of crowd-funder: Ink Brick, Steve Ekstrom, Mario Candelaria, Mark Andrew Smith, Corey Lewis, the Kupperbergs, Madeleine Holly-Rosing, Patrick Kain.

* finally, Ley Lines subscriptions are still available through the entire month. That seems like a good way to see some new cartoonists in a flattering context.
