Matthew Bogart is creating Comics

Trying to make comics that feel like life when it's good.

The cost of doing digital business.
$40 per Short comic or scene of a longer comic.
This covers all of the technological expenses that go into making these comics. Everything above $40 means I am no longer losing money on the digital side of things. This factors in the regular expenses of doing digital comics like website and backup hosting, as well as the appropriate monthly percentage of regular but less frequent costs like new hard drives, replacing failed equipment, domain name registration, software upgrades, a new computer every five years or so, etc.
All backers get an E-book of the first comic I ever drew.
$70 per Short comic or scene of a longer comic.
If we get to $70 a month I'll post "Shock Waves" #1, my first ever full length comic, drawn in 1991 on that kind printer paper that has the holes on either side with perforated edges that you have to tear off.

It's an embarrassing rip off of old Image Comics like WildC.A.T.s or Youngblood. It includes such well developed characters as Razar, the moody team leader whose was a misspelling of "razor", Glassious whose hands were made of ... glass, I guess, some kind of glass that could ... change shape? I'll upload the first issue as a downloadable ebook for all backers.
The cost of doing physical business.
$100 per Short comic or scene of a longer comic.
I tend to loose, on average, $720 per year going to conventions. Although I do pretty well, my book sales never come close to balancing out the table fees, travel, and lodging costs. Getting out and meeting readers and other cool folks in the comics community is something I love to do! Reaching this goal means I get to do so without going broke.


Cartoonist guy. I drew The Chairs' Hiatus, & am posting pages of my new book Oh, It's the End of the World every week.

My name's Matthew Bogart. I draw comics that would have been called "alternative comics" in the 90s and are just called "neat" today. ("Neat" is a word folks use right? "Neat-o"?) They are touching and funny, personal stories about regular people, that also sometimes include rocket ships, jet packs, and rock stars.

My first graphic novel was called The Chairs' Hiatus  and, among other shorter comics, I'm currently working on my second graphic novel called Oh, It's the End of the World


By becoming a patron you allow me the freedom to draw more comics for you today, as well as helping me draw them for many more years to come without going crazy. 

If you'd like to help me make more comics the best way to do so is to pitch in a little each time I publish new work.

I've always thought my comics work best if you read several pages in one go, as opposed to one page ever few days. So I've set things up so you don't get charged till I publish a batch of pages, usually either a complete comic or a scene of a longer one, two to five pages long. 

On months when I'm doing really well I can post an installment a week, but even if I go over that you can set a limit to what you're willing to contribute. That way if I'm extremely productive one month you don't end up giving more than expected.
