Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

* Quimby's NYC is trying to complete their signage in what is likely to be one of the most swag-driven crowd-funding campaigns of the year (thanks, Walter Dickinson).

image* San Diego Con is a great week to consider a gift or two, whether you have some money freed up by not going. The CBLDF and Hero Initiative are set up at the show and are worth a visit, always. There's a Humble Bundle going tied into comics charities featuring Will Eisner and Jack Kirby.

* I'm sure Marc Arsenault still has some catching up to do from his recent debilitating appendix incident.

* I am equally certain that the gofundme established for the late Sam Glanzman could use money that will be put to good use settling accounts and providing a transition for his loved ones and legacy.

* it may be the time of the year, but there a lot of healthy crowd-funders going with known quantities: Lucy Bellwood, Herbert Crowley, Tara Madison Avery and C. Spike Trotman.

* finally, Joamette Gil's crowdfunder on behalf of a queer witch anthology is at that point it needs to build some more momentum to meet that initial goal. I suspect it will make it.
