Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding
By Tom Spurgeon
* I'm sad to see the opening of the Billy Ireland's excellent Barbara Shermund exhibit didn't drive that last two thousand dollars in donations to her burial fund. I'm going to see if I can give some more money in the next month or so. I know it's hard to work up enthusiasm for a project that benefits an abstract principle like seeing this extraordinary woman finally laid to rest over projects that salve the wounds of the living, but I think it's an honorable exercise for peers and fans to this sort of kindness to a great artist.
