Comics By Request: People, Projects In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* Jim Wheelock recently put out the call that more help is needed in his situation. If you're able to give angel-amounts of help, you might look at some of these older requests that never really caught fire.

* Dustin Harbin went over $58K starting back in June in his search for $75K in relation to some horrific mouth injuries; that is an all-time win for comics-industry generosity, although $17K is hard for any cartoonist to carry around, at any point in their career.

* it's been a while since I've seen an active ask for a comics shop gain some momentum. This one has already done better than most.

* the huge success of a game related to Cyanide and Happiness still shows the strength of traditional web-friendly entities.

* Columbus cartoonist mainstays Flor Canela and Max Ink have made less than $500 on a catch-up ask related to Canela's recent illnesses. Flor always gives to Columbus-based events as best she can so it would be nice to see her rewarded on this request.

* finally: Lawrence Shell's roof repair ask that came in right before SDCC week might be more appealing to some folks on the other side of that specific yearly expense. Couldn't hurt to mention it again.
