Who are you?

Hello to my fans, readers, and internet strangers! I'm Caley Tibbittz Collopy, the creator, writer, and artist of SwordCat Knights and its spinoff titles.

What is SwordCat Knights™?
SwordCat Knights is an online graphic novel and comic book series about suicidal immortal superheroine Kathryn "Artemis the SwordCat" O'Mega, who finds reasons to live -- and a way to die. It's a drama and a comedy, it's a fantasy epic and a superhero adventure. It is an inclusive work, representing many ethnicities, cultures, and orientations. It is fundamentally pro-equality and LGBT-friendly.

What does this Patreon page support?
This page funds the webcomic SwordCat Knights, and other comics in
the SwordCat Knights Universe.

This Patreon page is per-update, so how often do you update?
SwordCat Knights is a weekly webcomic. It updates every Monday. Most months have 4 weeks/Mondays, but sometimes they will have 5. Keep this in mind when pledging and setting up your monthly max (if you choose to set a max).

If you update weekly, does that mean I'll be charged weekly?
No: At the start of the next month, Patreon will charge you for the total amount of all the pages you supported in one single charge (up to whatever monthly max you may have set).

Why I need your support:
Working on SwordCat Knights is very creatively rewarding, but (so far) not profitable enough to allow me to quit my day job(s). In addition to the main book, I am also currently (when I have time) writing and developing several spinoffs set in a big, fun extended shared universe. It's hard to get anywhere near enough done on the SCK Universe when I have to worry about how I'm going to pay my next bills, or wasting time renewing my food stamps!

I need your support to help turn SwordCat Knights from labor of love
into a profitable working business.


Your support means I can just make SwordCat Knights, which means you'll get more cool new comic pages more often. But not just that -- you also get cool rewards! :)

What exactly do my Patrons get?
Depending on your level of support, as my Patron you will:
  • Get to read the UNCENSORED Edition of SwordCat Knights.
  • Get to read SwordCat Knights FIRST -- new pages will go up early on Patreon.
  • See exclusive Behind-the-Scenes content after EVERY page.
  • Have exclusive access to WIPs & character design work.
  • Get original art sketches like these of ANY character you like (SCK or otherwise):

FAQs:
Do I have to pay in US Dollars?
Pay in ANY currency! This is a US based website, so everything is written in Dollars; you can use any currency and it will be automatically converted. PayPal is accepted!

How many webcomic pages do you create a month?
4 or 5 currently, depending on the number of weeks in the month -- this will go up to 8+ once I reach $100 per page and can quit my day job(s). I will post new pages on Patreon first in my "Activity" section., along with all the "Patreon Supporters only" content.

I don't have much money, can I still be a Patron?
Sure! Please only pledge what you can easily afford. Even $1 per month can (collectively) make a big difference, and will be greatly appreciated. (And remember, you can set a monthly cap!)

Can I stop donating, or change my pledge amount?
Yes! If you can't afford to donate in the future, or you want to move up or down to a higher or lower support tier, that's fine. You can just log in to change or cancel the account whenever you want.

Art will be my sole income. Please, for the love of all that is holy, help me complicate my tax returns!

You'll get more new SCK story pages, more often!
