Comics’ Giving Heart—People, Projects In Need Of Funding
* I assume without knowing that the fundraiser to avoid a pauper's burial for the late writer and creator Robert Washington was successful enough to foster a more proper service;
I hope his comics-making peers will attend if they're able.
* here's one I can get behind from a content standpoint: a collection of Don Rosa's Captain Kentucky and Pertwillaby Papers comics
. I remember those being fun comics and Rosa's an important enough cartoonist I think as much of his work should be in print as possible.
* these people were nice enough to write in and ask that some attention be given their comics-related Kickstarter
. I'm almost always happy to do that, as little as that may help.
* totally missed that Steve Lafler was raising money for his tour
; if you can find some way to send him money, that would be a nice thing for one of comics' old-school alt-comics warriors.
* I like the modest amount requested here
. As you can see from projects like this one
, there's really no set strategy for deciding what to ask in terms of what people might get paid for working on a project. At least not all the time. Even on that one, with a set amount and explicitly making paying a bulk of the creators a part of their proposal, there's a basic promise that most people will get paid but not, say, a set amount -- or at least one I could see. With the number of people involved, you'd think those things could be made explicit -- it seems like someone working on the thing would have enough time to do that. I'm a little unclear about that stuff, and need to educate myself.
* finally, here's a look-in on a project to fund a comics store through kickstarter
