Support Candorville

Wanna help out?
Darrin Bell created Candorville in 2003 to bring some fresh blood to the comics page, and was pleased to discover it did not bump him into a higher tax bracket. Did you know newspapers pay 1970’s wages for comic strips? Did you know cartoonists are paid absolutely nothing when you read their work online? Did you know that most cartoonists can’t afford the necessities of life, like legal defense fees, dental insurance or something called “food?” Stop the madness, people! Help Darrin pay for his lawyer. Help fix Darrin’s teeth. Help keep Darrin’s Big Mac cupboard full, and not only will you keep Candorville alive and kicking, you’ll get some pretty cool stuff (well, cool to Candorville fans, collectors & Darrin’s Mom).

Here’s what you can do:

Join the 2007 Candorville Patron Program

Write to your local newspaper or favorite website portal

Papers and websites depend on reader feedback to figure out which comics you want to read. You can help Candorville out by writing to your local paper and asking them to add it (or thanking them for running it, if Candorville’s already on their comics page), or voting for it (and getting everyone you’ve ever heard of to vote for it) when your paper runs its comic polls.
