Comics By Request: People, Projects in Need Of Funding
By Tom Spurgeon
* as always -- or at least for a little while more -- our first stop is at Frank Santoro's physical classroom space project
. I hope he goes way over; I want to see what he does with the money.
* the talented cartoonist Terry LaBan sent me a note the other day I'm just now able to act on, upon his participation in something called the Philly Comics Symposium, a one-day presentation on comics and how to do them, a focused comics gathering that has jettisoned the idea of a flea-market type room. I think we'll see a lot more of these in the future, particularly as people seek a way for a scene to do more than one event. Here it is.
* it feels like this William Blake-related book campaign
has been going on for 100 days, but it still has 42 to do. They've certainly met their initial goal.
* the effort to use crowd-funded money to reprint another edition of Cartozia Tales #1 seems to be going well
. That's one I didn't hear about until a few days ago, so I wanted to make sure to mention it here.
* one of the things that we don't talk about anymore is a project that at one point in time would be considered a slam-dunk cash-grab using the same tools as someone's dream project to get funded. Here's one of those
. I'm not sure what happened to that as an issue; I imagine people every so often get tired of arguing everything. This seems like something similar
, although maybe not quite the same thing.
* always interested in crowd-funder for things related to comics that don't involve publishing
, even if the thing in question isn't for me.
* hey, a MIke McCarthy project
