Hello! I'm Shawn McCauley, the creator, writer, artist, graphic designer, and publisher of Shadows of Oblivion. Creating and publishing a comic all by myself has been time consuming and expensive. As a result new issues of Shadows of Oblivion come out slowly, slower than molasses. I now realize that if I want that to change, I cannot do it by myself anymore. I need your help. 

Often, to make ends meet, I need to take on commissions and other freelance work. And even though I love doing that sort of work, I get up in the morning for my comics. Your support will allow me to focus on the comic, allowing new issues to come out frequently.  In return patrons will receive early access to updates, wallpaper and art downloads, art process, and even exclusive comic stories!

Any amount you can give goes a long way to making Shadows of Oblivion. So from the bottom of my heart thank you! And if you can't afford to give, that's okay too, you can still read the story at ShadowsofOblivion.com for free. Even if the updates are slow as molasses.

It's expensive to maintain a website. Reaching this milestone will allow all the hosting and website costs to be taken care of! To celebrate I'll release an exclusive 2 page Shadows of Oblivion story to all patrons.
