About Carolin Reich

Hello beautiful You!


My name is Carolin Reich and I‘m a freelance comic artist and illustrator from Germany.
Over the last ten years I worked for different companies and clients through the fields of Games and Advertising and published several comic stories.




Since 2016 I self-publish a comic series called “The Origin Story” (TOS)/ “Vom Anfang” (VA) with an archive of already five (german) books and a free-to-read, gradually growing online version on Webtoons, Tapas, Animexx and it's own website updating once to twice a week.
Currently, I‘m working on the sixths volume. The completed series will have seven books and with an overall estimation of 500-600 pages we are close to the finish line (nearly)!

If you’re like me and can’t wait for the next updates or bookrelease, you’ve come to the right place!


With you joining the exclusive TOS-community on Patreon you are directly contributing to a permanent “twice a week” update schedule or even “three to four pages per week” and eventually enabling me to become a full-time Comic-creator.

Let me show you how this could be done:


The last years I tended to work 60-80 hours shifts weekly to publish my comic and achieve a decent income at the same time. Which is something you can do, but not for long and you really don’t want to! Burnout here I come :D

  • 60 generous people at the 10€ tier or 200 at 3€ would help me cover my most basic living expenses while skipping additional contract work completely. These 600€ enable me to work full-time at the comic (not only scripting and drawing, but maintaining all the different social media and comic platforms, editing pages and illustrations, preparing comic-merch etc.) which results in a permanent twice-a-week update schedule and additional illustrations/side projects. I'd also love to create an additional spin off Short-Comic for you! :)
  • With an even greater support of 1000€ I can even hire additional help like a colorist and editor. Making it possible to publish two TOS books a year! A permanent three to four pages per week upload schedule will be my Thank You to you.

I know these are huge numbers, probably not achievable in an instant and overwhelming at first, but does this mean your support now is for nothing? Absolutely not!

  • 350€ per month means I'll hire a permanent flat color assistant, which will be a huge timesaver and stress relief to me. I'll create an exclusive Illustration Print and will send it out to all Patreons.
  • 200€ per month from kind and (obviously) beautiful Patrons can already pay my health-insurance, which is one contract job less and more time for content exclusively for you.
    Also I'd be finally able to pay something to my translator Martin Denk, who takes care of the english web-version since the beginning.
    As Thank you I'll create an exclusive Comic themed Holo-Sticker with you while Livestreaming and will send it out to all Patreons!
  • And with already 20 beautiful people spending 3€ each I celebrate that I can pay my monthly software subscriptions necessary for creating my art by opening a Discord channel. There we can hang out, directly connect and you can check if I make good use of your money!

Note regarding 2020 and the ongoing pandemic event
Without Conventions - Patreon is my main better, the only planable income source next to irregular freelancing gigs. Means every fund directly contributes to my living expenses for the time beeing and is a great help, stress and anxiety relieve, while additional enabling me to continue my work on the comicseries.

Okay you got it because you are not only beautiful, but clever too!

But let's be honest - Throwing money at me sounds tempting but what do you get in return?

I prepared a variety of pledge tiers for you to choose from with different rewards, e.g. like:

  • Exclusive Behind the Scenes content on uncoming books and projects
  • Yet Unpublished Sketches/WIPs
  • Patreon exclusive physical rewards and even original artwork.
  • Early Access to unplublished Comicpages
  • Monthly Livestream (Every second wednesday of the month)
  • Exclusive Discordchanel, where you ramble about the comic, but also can post your own art and I try to give feedback if wanted :)

Higher tiers always include all the rewards from lower tiers.

Anything left to say? Naah… There are already enough words. Congratz for reaching this spot. You seem to be a way more patient person than me. Only one thing:

Come and join me on my journey. Let‘s create a fantastic adventure together!

I‘m looking forward to meeting you. :)

Caro
