Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

* that nice lady Jackie Estrada wrote in to report on two crowd-funders she's supporting: the first is Jim Wheelock's in support of his recovery, and this one for the Cooksey Family who seem to have experienced some bad luck at least a portion of which came their way from people with bad intentions. The Wheelock strikes me as one where the comics community may need to play a significant role in getting the subject of the donations out of a not-optimal place, and I will try to mention it several more times on this site in the next few weeks.

* Adam Rosenlund is asking for money on behalf of breast cancer research after his wife's recent diagnosis, and for direct support. I don't know how those two separate things are being facilitated through the single ask presented, but I'll post it here for friends of the Rosenlund family and will write more when I know more and will donate myself to one or the other or both.

* finally: we featured Tic Toc Tom in a previous column, and it's still active.
