Spotlighting Three Awesome Comics and Cartoonists on Patreon
If you've not heard of Patreon yet, it's a service not dissimilar to Kickstarter, in that it allows you to donate money to projects and artists you'd like to support, sometimes for rewards, but largely because it's something you're invested in and would like to see continue.

Studios' latest round of Adventure Time and Marceline and the Scream Queens variants is definitely a great example...
