Patreon by the numbers

Here’s a breakdown of everything I posted for Patreon backers this month. NSFW content in red.

4 — NSFW Evil Inc After Dark

4 — NSFW Commissions

5 — NSFW sketches

3 — Evil Inc full page format

2 — Evil Inc previews

1 — NSFW erotica

1 — Arch Bros

1 — Monthly reward links

1 – Desktop background / mobile backgrounds

 

First things first: All regularly scheduled Patreon content — including the next NSFW Evil Inc After Dark — will post as usual. However, since I’m following a fantastic family Memorial Day Weekend with a daunting schedule of prepping for Wizard World Philly, printing a graphic novel, finalizing the NSFW eComic that my Kickstarter backers ordered as an add-on, and more — I’m posting a classic Greystone Inn (book/eComic) strip today and an Arch Bros comic Thursday. The Evil Inc graphic novel will return next week.

Today’s THE day to Patreon!

Wizard World PhillyToday’s your last chance to join Patreon and avoid waiting for the special content packages I send out every month. Mind you — you can access all of the content as soon as you join. But at the beginning of every month — as soon as the payments are processed — I send out links to categorized folders of exclusive Patreon content.

Using those links, for example, you can read all of the Evil Inc After Dark comics, in order (and uninterrupted). Or, using another link, you can just check out all of the NSFW illos. Everyone who has joined in May has been waiting for the first week of June to get these links.

But if you join today, you’ll get yours by the end of the week!

Wizard World Philly

Wizard World PhillyThis Thursday, and through Sunday, I’ll exhibiting at Wizard World Philly at Table B25 in Artist’s Alley. I’ll have copies of all of my books — including Evil Inc Vol. 8, which was not available at  the Philly show last year. The recently Kickstarted book — Evil Inc Vol. 9 — is not due to be back from the printers until later this month, but I’ll be taking pre-orders for that one as well.

I don’t plan on having original art on hand. I’m holding that back for Patreon and Kickstarter rewards. However, if you want something in particular, please get in touch with me and we’ll see if we can work something out.

There’s a chance that I’ll be doing Chicago Comic Con later this year, but aside from that, this will be my last convention appearance of the year.

I’ll also be doing panel discussions throughout Wizard World Philly — including a special panel featuring my two sons and our podcast “Hey Comics — Kids!
