Team Cul de Sac Deadline Extended; Grateful Cartoonists Nationwide Heave Great Sigh of Relief

This is a cross post from the Team Cul de Sac Blog. We have extended the deadline for donations to the Team CdS fundraiser until June 17th! This was done for a couple of reasons. Lee Salem, Caty Neis, Richard Thompson and Chris Sparks will be at the Reuben awards in Boston in less than three weeks. Chris will personally be asking cartoonists to contribute to Team Cul de Sac, Caty might be singing and Richard will be juggling (possibly unintentionally). Ooh, this could get ugly!

The following weekend please visit Heroescon in Charlotte NC. Team Cul de Sac will be releasing The Fanzine for the ages put together by Craig Fischer. The contributors are an all-star line-up: Derik Badman, Noah Berlatsky, Alex Boney, David Bordwell, Matthew J. Brady, Scott Bukatman, Johanna Draper Carlson, Isaac Cates, Rob Clough, Corey Creekmur, Andrew Farago, Shaenon Garrity, Dustin Harbin, Charles Hatfield, Jeet Heer, Gene Kannenberg Jr., Abhay Khosla, Susan Kirtley, Sean Kleefeld, Costa Koutsoutis, Andrew Mansell, Robert Stanley Martin, Chris Mautner, Joe McCulloch, Ana Merino, Chris Pitzer, Mike Rhode, Jim Rugg, Frank Santoro, Chris Schweizer, Caroline Small, Tom Spurgeon, Ben Towle and Matthias Wivel.

The Zine will be a word-packed 40 pages, topped off by a cover by some fledgling artist whose name I forget. Please come by and say hi to Craig, Mike Rhode , Richard and Chris.

Thank you to everyone who's helping out!
Thank you, Happy Deadline Clown!

We pledge to do anything we can to make life easier for cartoonists, up to and including sneaking small, fancy chocolates onto their drawing boards when they aren't paying attention. Even if it's not entirely physically possible. We care that much.

Yay x2 for Adam Koford!

WOOOOHOOOO!!!! I had EVERYTHING I needed to draw my cartoon except for the time to do it. But I was determined not to miss it. Can you even imagine how hard it would have been to build the time machine I needed before this extension was announced?

Doing some research for illustration competitions I came across this blog, I would love to help out, if you don't mind a no-name such as myself.

Shaenon's penciled our contribution, and I'm going to start inking and lettering tonight. We might just hit that May 15 deadline after all.

Ian, I am also a no name but this is a great cause to help! We no names have to stick together.
I can't wait to see what Shaenon and Andrew do!

Been out of the loop for a while Richard. This is a great idea and the deadline extension gives me, Ollie and Quentin a chance to do something.
