You're AWESOME. You know that, right?

You are literally MY hero. That, or a fairy godmother, but I didn’t know if you preferred a sword and shield or wings, pink dress and a wand. 

Thank you for helping me get closer to the biggest dream of my life: To create a fictional world where readers can lose themselves in each adventure.

I know what it's like to get your hopes up about a new book or series, only to have it ripped from you like explosive diarrhea.

That's why I created Wanted Hero.

I wanted to entertain my own kids by creating books & games with a magical storyline spanning thousands of generations, involving hundreds of characters and crossing multiple genres.

So I did just that.

A puzzle of mental and emotional candy to feeds the imagination while building a powerful hunger to revisit this ever-expanding storyline to satisfy their fiction addiction.

Imagine if Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter had a love child with the personality of Steve Zahn.

Adventure, mystery, magic, mayhem, and a huge infusion of humor.



These personally crafted stories started as doodles and private conversations. They evolved into black and white comic books. The comics were shared with extended family and friends until complete strangers started requesting them also.


With a handful of library books and a pull of a slot machine handle (true story), I launched my publishing company ON THE FLY PUBLICATIONS and in 2005, built my first website. We offered the comics as digital downloads for a buck before there were popular webcomics and before the iPad, Nook or Kindle had been invented.

Over time these comics morphed into YA fantasy novels. Novels soon inspired games and podcasts...and the adventures of Wendell P. Dipmier continue to grow today.

This Is Where You Come In

When you pledge your support, you do two specific and powerful things:

1) You allow me to work for myself. To spend my efforts interacting with and crafting treasures for you. Books, games, comics, art, shirts, posters...and to take you deeper into this world than anyone thought possible.

2) You allow me to be a dad to my kids. 
Every pledge allows me to take more control over my schedule and spend more time with those who need me most! That’s a miracle you can help provide.


(Want to know more about me? Read my full bio  here.)

How is the money spent?

It's all spent on Wanted Hero to keep it growing. Pledges help me with office rent, utilities, hosting, materials (pens, ink, computers, repairs) and anything needed to maintain what we've built thus far.


What Do YOU Get? 

(...cause that's the point, right??)
Those who become patrons will gain access to:

  • OUR EXCLUSIVE PATREON FEED. You get information the public never will, just for $1.

  • LOTS AND LOTS (and lots) OF ARTWORK. I'm a professional illustrator--it's how I make my living. Most pledge levels will get some form of artwork. Rough sketches, conceptual drawings, pen and ink and even entries made by Hobin Luckyfeller into his Fieldguide when he passes through town. 
  • HD DOWNLOADS. Those who pledge $5 or more a month will gain access to HD Artwork you can print out, frame and hang on your walls.

Rumors, hidden histories, recovered documents, lost magic and more--exclusive to fans of this fictional world. These are the best tidbits of my creations and things I have no intention of sharing with the public, only Patreons!
  • FUN EXTRAS TO GET TO KNOW US BETTER. My son Evan & I do weekly videocasts live on Twitch, which we provide to patrons. Patrons can ask questions, request subject matter for us to cover and more...
  • NEW WantedHero RPG GAMES & LIVE PLAYING SESSIONS! Once we hit enough Patrons, Evan & I have plans to include some new games we're creating, which we will play with YOU.
It's important to me that you're happy.
