Another month, another Linkblogging post. Please note that there is plenty of great stuff on the internet, and this is only stuff I know about. If your stuff isn’t on this page of stuff, let me know.

Funding for the John Porcellino documentary, “Root Hog or Die,” is coming to close on Kickstarter. John, among other things, runs his own zine distro, Spit and a Half, self publishes comics, and has a book coming out from drawnandquarterly in Fall 2014, The Hospital Suite. You’ve got 6ish days left.
With 19+ days to go, the Valor anthology has soared past its $20K funding request and looks to have some pretty neat comics. The theme is fairy tales with courageous heroines. You can find the anthology’s tumblr at valor-anthology.
LOVF by Jesse Reklaw is looking for $2.5K and has partial backing from fantagraphics, whatever that means?? Jesse was one of the pioneers of webcomics with his piece Slow Wave. Also, it appears he’s trying to sell the original art of LOVF all as one piece for $5K on his website… which, that’s something.
Sabrina Cotugno (tumblr: arythusa) has what looks to be a great comic up on Kickstarter, Bleeding Heart, about a scientist in training who rescues an injured werewolf. It appears that this standalone story will be a small part of what looks to be a much larger comic universe called The Glass Scientists. You can find out more at the Kickstarter page. This is something that I think we don’t see a lot of – comics Kickstarters generally collect previously printed material; they don’t often kick off a whole multiverse of comics work.
