I haven't seen a major fundraising drive for a webcomic in awhile. T Campbell and Gisele Lagace have organized one that kicks off now with the purpose of trying to help Gisele Lagace quit her day job. Legace is currently the artist on the Campbell scripted Penny & Aggie, but previously Legace cut her webcomic teeth on the fondly-remembered Cool Cat Studio. Lagace is already an amazingly good artist (just check out this month's cover art for Comixpedia she created) – it would be phenomenal to see her artistic growth if she could work on comics full time.
Check out the donation page and consider it – hey, if everybody chips in enough to get them to $10,000 we'll finally find out the conclusion to the unfinished Cool Cat Studio.
