Comics’ Giving Heart—People, Projects In Need Of Funding

* the fundraiser for the artist Oliver Nome is rounding the final quarter and into its last few thousand needed, with plenty of days left to do so.

* here's a kickstarter for a tribute book focused on Mercyful Fate, featuring many of your southern California cartooning all-stars.

* the Trickster fundraiser seems to be progressing at a decent pace. That's the comics salon that runs concurrently with Comic-Con International. The thing to watch there is the number of high-end premiums, basically taking the form of advanced class advisory sessions with super-established pros.

* not all of the comics-related crowd-funding initiatives are crushing it right out of the starting gate.

* finally, the Cerebus-related fundraiser is at about 600 percent of its desired goal. This doesn't surprise me; I think Sim is perfectly suited for Kickstarter given the esteem with which he's held by his fans.
