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

All backers get an E-book of the first comic I ever drew.
$70 per month of comics.
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 month of comics.
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.

Top PatronsSee all 16

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, funny, heartbreaking, personal stories about regular people, that also somehow include rocket ships, jet packs, and rock stars.

My first graphic novel was called The Chairs' Hiatus  and I post two pages a week of my current story in progress called Oh, It's the End of the World

Oh, It's the End of the World The Chairs' Hiatus ...yeah Satellite Beach 

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. 

What You Get

The Early Bird

$1 per month. You'll get each page a day earlier than non-backers. You can spoil them for what's going to happen if you want. All backers also get a discount code for 10% off anything in my store.

Backstage Pass

$3 per month. You'll get everything listed above in "The Early Bird" as well as behind the scenes peaks into the creation of the comic. Perfect for aspiring artists or folks interested in how the comic creation process works. You'll see work in progress pages, even see characters and artwork edited out of the finished story.


$5 per month. You'll get the early pages, the behind the scenes artwork and tutorials, PLUS all of my downloadable ebooks. This includes all of the current chapters of "Oh, It's the End of the World" as well as the special edition of "The Chairs' Hiatus" that includes a backup story not on my site.

The Digital Package

$7 per month. You'll get everything listed above, early pages, behind the scenes access, ebooks as well as an original sketch of the character of mine of your choice emailed to your inbox every month! This will not be posted anywhere online but in your email box.

Check your mailbox!

$10 per month. This is exactly like the "Digital Package"above except instead of getting a digital sketch you get a PHYSICAL sketch of the character of mine of your choice on real paper mailed to your door!* The sketches are post card size and are penciled and inked. This is just about the only time I ever draw on paper any more so there aren't a lot of sketches by me in the wild.

*US only unfortunately. If you're outside the US please add $3 for shipping.
