Alice Oseman is creating Heartstopper

HELLO! My name is Alice Oseman, I'm 24, I'm from the UK, and I'm the writer and artist of a webcomic called Heartstopper. I'm also a published author of three YA novels: I Was Born for this, Radio Silence, and Solitaire.



I've been obsessively drawing my characters for years and I'm a huge fan of graphic novels - so I decided to combine two of my passions and start a comic! Heartstopper launched in September 2016, and it is an LGBT romance/coming-of-age story about Nick and Charlie, two boys at a British all-boys grammar school. You can read it online, absolutely free! And though it's about characters from my novel Solitaire, it's a standalone story - you don't need to have read my books to read the comic.

I currently work full-time as a writer and artist, and YOU can help me continue to do that!! It's truly an honour and a blessing to have these things as my career, but it really all relies on you - my amazing readers! I really want to be able to make Heartstopper the best first comic it can be, and I want to continue making cool stories for you, so if you feel like supporting me financially, you can do so here - in exchange for a load of EXCLUSIVE BONUS EXTRAS to do with the comic!

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS.
You pledge to donate a certain amount of money per month. In return, depending on how much you choose to donate, you can get:
  • Heartstopper pages as soon as I've drawn them (aka very frequent updates!)
  • Early updates!
  • Update announcements!
  • Exclusive artworks!
  • Sketches, doodles, works-in-progress!
  • Teasers and previews!
  • My eternal love!
  • Join the Heartstopper Discord: https://discord.gg/AbnuKXx

If you do choose to support me financially here on Patreon, THANK YOU! I love you a lot. You keep me living my dream.

Check out some samples of my art here.
