About


SuperButch is a webcomic about a lesbian superhero in the 1940s who protects the bar scene from corrupt cops. It's also about the women in the community SuperButch protects. When it's done, SuperButch will be not only an exciting superhero adventure, but also a portrait of a vibrant lesbian community in the 1940s.

SuperButch is co-created by myself (co-plotter and artist) and Barry Deutsch (co-plotter, script, and lettering).  All of SuperButch is available to read for free online. And it lets me draw two of my favorite subjects - lesbians and old buildings!

Barry and I have SuperButch plotted far into the future. The SuperButch story, when completed, will be hundreds of pages long, and we're really excited about where it's going. But right now, I can only draw one page per week, so it'll take a very long time to get finished! I'm hoping this Patreon will eventually provide the support needed to create SuperButch faster.

In addition to SuperButch, I've been creating autobio comics for years, about my daily life (often featuring my sidekick Shoulder Angel) and about working at a children's theater. Some of these cartoons are single-panel images, painted in watercolor on postcards; some of them are traditional comics pages. Most of my non-SuperButch comics work can be seen on French Toast Comix.

Goals
$140.86 of $200 per month
Barry and I will take the time to snazz up the SuperButch website - for instance, adding a page about the real-life superheroes who inspired parts of this comic. It'll be swell!
