Freeman Ng is creating the Trumpbert comic strip

patron

Are you as big a fan of Scott Adams' Dilbert as I am? If so, are you as baffled as I am by his support for Donald Trump, the quintessential pointy-haired boss? Since Adams seems unwilling or unable to focus the clarity of his Dilbert vision onto Trump, I've decided to drag Trump into an alternate Dilbert universe:

Trumpbert will run five days a week, with a bonus panel that $3/month contributors will receive every Saturday. It will run as long as Donald Trump remains in the national spotlight. When Trump finally disappears, so will this strip, and no creator will ever be happier than me to see their work come to an end.

The Goals

I write the Trumpbert scripts and pay a freelance illustrator for drawings of the various characters that I paste together and reuse in order to keep my costs down. As support for this strip goes up, I'll be able to pay for more takes of each character, rather than continue to reuse the same old ones, and when I reach the first project goal, I'll start paying for the illustrator to draw entire strips from scratch. 

If support for the strip gets high enough, I'll start donating half of everything beyond that point to liberal and progressive political candidates, causes, and organizations.

About Me

I'm a former Google software engineer who's now writing and creating art full time. I'm the author of Joan, a novel of Joan of Arc, Haiku Diem 1, a collection of haiku illustrated with my digital art, and Who Am I?, a personalizable picture book. I'm also the co-creator of Poetry and Terror: Politics and Poetics in Coming to Jakarta, a commentary on Coming to Jakarta, Peter Dale Scott's book length poem about the 1965 Indonesian Massacre that former U.S. poet laureate Robert Hass called "the most important political poem to appear in the English language in a very long time."

Tiers
Voter
$1 or more per month
Millions of voters (not as many as Clinton's, but still: quite a number) put Trump into office. If you vote for the strip at this level, I will give you:
  • A promise (that I will break) to build you a wall 
  • My thanks
Hacker
$3 or more per month
Like the hackers who aided Trump by attacking the DNC, you'll be privy to information not accessible to the general public:
  • A bonus panel every Saturday topping off that week's storyline.
Fixer
$5 or more per month
Every successful candidate needs a fixer to pay off the odd porn star or Playboy model. As one of my fixers, you'll be rewarded with the hope of every shady operative: a paper trail that you can use to stab me in the back some day.
  • In addition to the weekly bonus panel...
  • I'll list your name on a page on the Trumpbert website. Special prosecutors, grand juries, and the House Judiciary Committee will be able to see exactly what you're doing for me.
Big Money Donor
$10 or more per month
Your big money will buy you influence and access. 
  • In addition to the weekly bonus panel...
  • And listing you on the website...
  • I'll reveal my roadmap of future strips to you and be responsive to your suggestions about where it should go next.
  • And I'll produce a monthly bonus strip accessible only to you, based on your suggestions.
Goals
0% complete
1. Strips from scratch

When your contributions reach this level, I'll start paying the illustrator to draw at least one strip a week entirely from scratch, which will result in much better looking scenes than my copy-and-paste jobs.
