Part the pages of the right book and you’re transported. It’s THIS experience that we at Your Chicken Enemy are committed to curating for you.

Books come in all shapes, sizes, and genres. But there’s one very special kind that YCE focuses on and fosters: Small Press Comics.

Not just any small press comic. YCE almost exclusively supports small press comics that are a singular vision created by one artist who crafts every aspect of your literary and visual experience, and we’re proud to connect audiences to them.

Fascinated yet? Good, because we want you to be a become an enemy -- a Chicken Enemy, that is.

We think the world needs to know more about Small Press Comics. They offer an understanding of the unknown, foster connection and personal growth, and enliven compassion and empathy. The books we review are often of a personal nature and convey experience, emotion, and tap the raw power of storytelling in a way that’s moving and transformative.

YCE highlights artists who write, pencil, letter, ink, color, and edit the volumes that we review and/or recommend. One artist, one vision, one complete piece of an individualistic artistic process.

Small press comics are so great because they access parts of your brain that few other media do. Those different parts fire at the same time in a novel way as they work together, delivering meaning through a combination of written word and complex imagery that is both rich and complete.

So, finally, here’s an invitation: If you like being introduced to great small press/self-published comics, if you like reading thoughtful and engaging writing about these books, then make a donation. It would mean a great deal to us and to the artists whose work we support.

We know a couple of things at YCE:

  1. Where art is involved, the struggle is real. Our reviews of artists and their work enlivens interest and drives sales.
  2. The people who write reviews for us should be paid.

The aim of this Patreon is to raise the funds to double the number of critical reviews and recommendations that YCE can publish per month.

This is a win-win for our writers and for the artists that they spotlight.

Our 2019 goal is to bring in $160 monthly -- for a total annual sum of $1,920 -- in order to run an additional 4 reviews a month. This would mean at least eight reviews of spectacular books would go up on the site every four weeks (nearly 100 reviews a year)!

In addition to all the joy you’ll get from supporting great writing and the arts, here are our give-backs to you for your contribution:

$1/month or a total of $12/year
- Joy
- You’re officially listed as an Enemy on YCE’s Flock of Fame page

$5/month or a total of $60/year (or more)
- Joy
- You’re officially listed as an Enemy on YCE’s Flock of Fame page
- You get a monthly review of a delicious sandwich (After all, who doesn’t love sandwiches?).

My name is Daniel Elkin, publisher of Your Chicken Enemy. For the past decade, I’ve been writing about comics on sites such as Comics Bulletin, Loser City, Comicon, Wink, WWAC, Factional, PanelXPanel, and Psycho Drive-In.

For the past year and a half, I’ve focused most of my writing on Your Chicken Enemy while gathering a group of smart critics writing amazing things about spectacular books. We’re avid fans of this medium and are proud to champion its merits and creators.

I thank you for your consideration and wish you both happiness and great sandwiches.
