Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding
By Tom Spurgeon
* 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.
