Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* I'll admit to being a little baffled as to why a publisher Dynamite's size -- and with their perceived resources -- is using Kickstarter, but it's certainly worked for them. I guess there's an argument to be made that this will distinguish that project and allow them to build from pre-sold issues, but something about that still seems sort of wrong to me.

* Ganzeer's graphic novel ask has a long way to go.

* a slower week for Peter David's GoFundMe related to back taxes, although he's also collecting donations through the mail and I think initially through direct on-line contribution not a GoFundMe.

* as a counterweight against those two bullet points, there's the fully-funded-in-10-days White Ash #1 and we can note that the Chicago Architecture Foundation has really done well.

* finally, Mark Evanier points out of a couple of charities supported by the late Carolyn Kelly.
