Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

* the last time I looked at it on last Thursday, the Save Pepe crowd-funder had doubled up its initial ask. This is a very strange story, and I don't know how I'd react to all of this if it had happened to me.

* I would imagine this one featuring Mike Ploog and Simon Bisley has roared past its initial ask as well.

* the Sam Glanzman gofundme seems close enough to its initial ask I should mention it a few more time here. Glanzman is a veteran, one of the few surviving artists of the pre World War 2 era, a valuable contributor to the Silver Age of comics, a fine comics artist generally and I'm told a swell guy. Surely there's some money out there for his plight.

* finally, my hunch is Marc Arsenault could use a bit more of a hand than he's received after being physically debilitated by a horror-show appendix situation. He's likely published someone you love.
