Radio Comix, long-standing publisher of furry comics like Furrlough and Ebin & May, is running an Indiegogo campaign to raise cash to remain in business after discovering a massive tax shortfall:
Due to a horrible oversight on the part of our (now former) accountant, we now owe a staggering amount of back taxes. The total is truly shocking, and when I first discovered it, I was ill for days. I've been working for three months with a new accountant to get everything that wasn't filed taken care of, but filing does not equal paying and now not only do these freshly filed taxes have to be paid, but there are penalties due to the late filing. I'm a firm believer in filing and paying all my taxes, and finding out I was behind was my worst nightmare come true.
I have been working with the IRS to come up with a payment plan, but if we could get a large lump sum together to pay in at one time, it would be an enormous help!
Update: Four hours in, $1500 had been pledged; by the end of the evening it was $5364.
Update 2 (March 26): The lifetime subscriptions sold out this morning. Commissions by Stan Sakai were added; within hours, six of the five on offer were somehow claimed.
Like last month, this month's best item is a big reprint book from Fantagraphics, this time two years of Pogo. Buy it buy it buy it. The Mickey Mouse hardbacks are impressive too.
The diversity of sources continues. This includes some items from Kids Can Press, a Garfield thing from Papercutz, one from Toon Books, and a couple of Dragon Punchers from Top Shelf that I pass over as overjuvie.
It is coming close to the end of the year, and we're running out of space in our storage space! In order to help make more room, and also to lower those end-of-year inventory taxes, we're clearing out comics at half off!
Every Radio Comix and Sin Factory comic book that is more than a year old at the Radio Comix Webstore is 50% off (this is 50% off the cover price, and 50% off the shipping, too). Titles include Furrlough, Genus, Havoc Inc, Hit the Beach, Eureka, Bureau of Mana Investigation, Tales of the Fehnnik, Morning Glory, Monsters of Rock, True Hue, Gold Digger Edge Guard, Mangaphile, Milk, and more.
This is our biggest sale ever, and we don't expect to offer a sale like this in the forseeable future, so act soon. Sale lasts for ONE WEEK ONLY, ending October 13th.

Radio Comix, Inc. has opened a brand new shopping-cart-style online store, where all Radio Comix and Sin Factory titles are now available for sale. And, more importantly, we are now accepting payment by Visa and Mastercard again!
Previously, back in 2003, Radio Comix would accept payment online by the online payment service PayPal. However, during the summer of 2003, PayPal announced that they were no longer accepting payments for adults-only items, which is a significant portion of what Radio Comix (and their adults-only imprint, Sin Factory) has available for sale.
However, with our new shopping cart, located at radiocomixstore.com, customers can now browse through our catalog of comics and send payment securely using their Visa or Mastercard.

It took a couple of years, but Radio Comix has finally created an easy-to-use shopping cart system to order comic books online! Using PayPal's shopping cart system, furry fans can order their favorite comic books with the simple click of a button, and pay using their Visa, Mastercard, American Express or PayPal account.

From Radio Comics' website: "As some of you may or may not know, longtime Radio creator Jim Hardiman has been having health problems. Specifically, his diabetes has caused blood clots to form in his eyes. Thankfully, with some management and laser eye surgery, permanent blindness was averted. However, the surgery was very expensive, and like most comic artists, he doesn't have medical insurance. So we at Radio decided to sponsor a benefit book to help Jim with his bills! We asked our best and brightest artists to submit their take on Jim's popular Skunkworks characters and the response was overwhelming! Skunkworks: Reflections was born!"
