Fantagraphics, one of the world’s finest publishers of comic art, is seeking financial aid to help battle their current legal woes with writer Harlan Ellison. You can read more about it here.
Here’s a small excerpt…
Hereâ€™s how you can help:
1. BUY OUR BOOKS. Yes, we know youâ€™re probably already doing this, but surely this is a good time to give all your friends and relatives gifts. Seriously, we have a web site full of beautiful books and the sale of our books helps pay our lawyers.
2. GIVE US DOUGH. You can donate money to the Fantagraphics Defense Fund if youâ€™re so inclined. This money will be deposited in a separate account and used exclusively to pay our lawyers. We know that there are hundreds of good causes to contribute to; we know that most of our readers are on a budget; we know you have your own problems; we know your life does not revolve around helping Fantagraphics; and we appreciate that you have probably bought our books in the past and will probably continue to buy those books that interest you. No pressure. But, if you have the money and want to support us, we will be deeply and sincerely appreciative of anything you would be willing to donate â€” from five bucks to, well, the skyâ€™s the limit. A handful of big donations from the well-off would help us immensely. Small contributions, even letters of support, will boost our morale.
