The latest batch of Xeric Grant winners has been announced — since its foundation in 1992, the Xeric has recognized a fairly amazing lineup of cartoonists and comics. Here’s some more comics we’ll be looking for in 2010:
Sarah Becan – The Complete and Definitive Ouija Interviews
Bryan G. Brown — First Fight
Sixta C. – Soldiers of God
Ben Costa – Shi Long Pang, The Wandering Shaolin Monk
Blaise Larmee – Young Lions
Lane Milburn – Death Trap

The Xeric Foundation has announced its most recent grant recipients. A total of $32,042 was awarded for eight comic book projects. The Foundation has awarded in excess of $2.3M to comic book creators and nonprofit organizations since its first grant cycle in September 1992.
Established by Peter Laird, co-creator of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Northampton, MA based foundation offers financial assistance to self-publishing comic book creators in the US and Canada and to qualified charitable and nonprofit organizations in western Massachusetts.
The next deadline and review dates for comic book grants are March 31, 2010 and May 1, 2010, respectively. The charitable organization grants are decided annually in March and announced separately.
