Hello everyone, this is Tony of AVANT GAUCHE COMICS... WAIT. Stop reading this right now. Before we get into all the "hows" and "whys," click on the "Creator Posts" link at the bottom of this post. Then click the "Load More" button at the very bottom of the page, until our sample comics begin to appear. See them? Go ahead. I'll wait. 

OK. That's what we do. Those comics are what you can expect from AVANT GAUCHE if you decide to become a patron... Expect the unexpected. And, above all, expect it to brighten your day with funny stuff. This is NOT your Daddy’s or Mommy's comic panel cartoon! It's new, it's different, and you won't find anything like it anywhere. 
Want in?
Then let's start again...

Hello everyone, this is Tony of AVANT GAUCHE COMICS, which I create with my partner, Rich Hedden: an unbelievably talented illustrator who developed his own comic series, Roachmill for DarkHorse Comics — and cut his teeth illustrating for, Teen Age Mutant NinjaTurtles, DC Comics, (The Demon), and BIO Comics (Captain BIO). His work has also appeared on Star Wars Trading Cards. He ROCKS. Me? I'm a cartoonist and I love making comics. Hopefully you've seen a comic or two of mine floating around the internet or in your local paper. I've also been doing a daily comic since 2008 called DADDY'S HOME. Maybe you've seen that one as it's distributed to 300 newspapers and newspaper websites in the US and Canada with a circulation of 35 million, daily. I've also written for MAD Magazine, Cracked and National Lampoon, to name a few. But that's not why I'm here. I'm here for my brand spanking, shiny new comic AVANT GAUCHE, which I believe is some of my best work. That's why I need your help.

Besides doing AVANT GAUCHE, I am often busy balancing freelance projects to keep myself and my webcomic afloat. Since I was never a fan of ads on my home site, I spend a lot of time doing stuff that's not AVANT GAUCHE related for the sake of AVANT GAUCHE. By supporting me on Patreon, you will be giving me the ability to focus more of my time and energy on my webcomic, which is my main priority. And... AND, as if gaining access to this ground breaking comic is not reason enough, you'll be getting the work of not one but TWO veteran cartoonists! Rich and I have the combined experience of more than 7 decades between us!

Furthermore, your support not only means more time to work on AVANT GAUCHE, but it also means you'll have potential access to a brand new AVANT GAUCHE comic every single day... 24/7, including holidays! With your help, We'll soon be busy writing and drawing exclusive AVANT GAUCHE wallpapers, comics, and characters just for YOU. And that is exactly what I want to be doing!

In case you have any questions about how Patreon works, see below:

So what am I doing here on Patreon, you ask?
Patreon allows you to offer to pledge money to my comics in exchange for rewards. Different amounts correspond to different rewards!

How does it work?
When you click the “Become a Patron” button, you can select how much you want to pledge per month. You'll be charged automatically, and can adjust or cancel your pledge at anytime. Seriously though, there's no pressure – unless, of course you WANT me to starve to death. I'm KIDDING though. I kid. I'm a kidder. But in all seriousness, I appreciate any support. It's really a good comic. I swear. But don't take my word for it. Judge for yourself.
