Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* the wonderful Lorraine Chamberlain, S. Clay Wilson's longtime caretaker and general wonderful person, looks like she could use some help negotiating some patients rights issue where Wilson is currently staying. We as a community can do a much better job with things like this, but until then if you have experience in this area it seems like you might be able to help.

* Drew Ford's ask to facilitate more work for the sometimes politically controversial writer Chuck Dixon on the Airboy property is about 87 percent to reaching its first goal.

* this modest ask with an interesting premise is similarly close to its initial ask.

* here's a run of shop-related crowd-funders out there right now: Junky Comics, Lightning House, Comic Book Shoppe. That is traditionally not a successful sub-category of comics-related fundraisers, so it's interesting to me to see a few clumped together.

* if you survived the winter, maybe think about a patreon from the one-year-and-younger pile? There are a lot of great cartoonists out there.

* finally: we are still closing in on paying for the first ask in the Barbara Shermund Burial Fund ask. It would be wonderful if the wider comics community could close this one out.
