Hi! I'm Alakotila. I make queer sci-fi and fantasy comics!

I love to write warm stories, with plenty of moments where characters find strength and hope in each other. Prepare for fluffy romance, as well as found family and friendship! (And for worlds where queer characters aren't being buried!)



With your support I can devote more of my heart to making comics! My first goal is to have double updates for Spidersilk, and make no mistake -- every single dollar pledged helps, as it all adds up, and I absolutely appreciate all of your pledges! Thank you!!

Spidersilk
Desperate to find a new home, an ex-soldier falls in with a group of thieves. The thieves' working relationship with the city guard comes under fire when a threat from outside the wall appears, slowly pulling their delicate system of alliances apart.

Spidersilk was launched in 2011 and is now a part of the Ink Drop Collective. 



FELL SWOOP:
On a routine mission, a medic and his team encounters a lone scavenger foraging in the ruins. After an attack on the mission party, the pair find themselves alone and drawn to each other, despite the masks they each wear.

Fell Swoop was launched in Pride Month (June!) of 2017, and is an exclusive comic with Start Faire. It can also be read on mirror sites, but patrons get the absolute first look at pages.

Sunlit Silence:

Falkner made a deal to give up on their dreams if they were not recruited for an airship crew within ten years. After ten years of working as a caravan scout, Falkner must abandon even that and pursue something within the city limits to make good on that deal. However, that very thing leads Falkner right back to their dreams...






Comics take many, many... many hours. I have been able to create some really great Spidersilk extras with patron support and it helps me create more art with a little less stress, so I cannot thank you enough. Together, we can work towards unlocking even more Spidersilk, and ultimately, more comics of all sorts!

Rewards:
Each month a PDF WIP will appear with images and a walk-through of work from the previous four weeks.

 One short story is added every month. So far, these have been exclusive to patreon! (I have unlocked one, and you can read it here!)

Early comic pages typically show up a week before main sites!

At the highest current support, $7, you get a special romantic sketch dump that may be rated TV14 at most, but is usually just cute and fluffy. At this tier, you have access to everything each month! 

✨ Thank you! ✨
