Comic Book Industry Applications For Paycheck Protection Program PPP

A lot of American companies have been eligible to apply for Paycheck Protection Program payments of PPP to help keep employees. The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. And the Small Business Administration that manages it will forgive loans if all employee retention criteria are met, and the funds are used for eligible expenses. Because it is a government-run system, it is a public matter on the record regarding who has applied, in what range the loan has been granted and from which bank.  The deadline to apply for a PPP loan was initially June 30th, and was later extended to August 8th. Here are a few comic book related companies who have applied, with categories sorted by the numbers involved, feel free to add more you find in the comments. And it begins with the show that would have been happening today, the San Diego Comic-Con.
