Hi! My name is Aria and I like making comics. Particularly, I like making Kidd Commander, my original webcomic. I've been working on the characters and story for a very, very long time and am beyond ecstatic to finally be sharing it with everybody!



As it is right now, the comic is updating with around three full-color pages each week. While it can be argued that this is a fairly frequent update rate, my concern is that Kidd Commander is going to be a very long story. Very long. It's fashioned after traditional ongoing shonen adventure comics, keeping close to the "rowdy bunch of characters moving towards a lofty goal one episode at a time" format.  While this is doable for proper comic authors who can crank out a whole chapter every week, I'm afraid the webcomic pace is just too slow for what I want to do. But that's what we're stuck with! So I'm going to hedge my bets and do everything I can to funnel all the time I possibly can into this project. 



Every decision I've made over the last few years has been informed by my eventual goal of exclusively creating my comic for a living. Admittedly, this is partially because I've never really wanted to do anything that doesn't involve storytelling. Mostly, though, I would like to be able to finish Kidd Commander within my lifetime, and that's not looking possible at the rate I would work at if I couldn't keep up doing comics full time. I just need time so I can bring you as much content of the highest quality that I possibly can.


 

So basically, for transparency's sake: any support means groceries and living expenses for me, promotional expenses and general upkeep for the comic, and more content more frequently for you! Due to time and money constraints I don't have a lot to give back to my supporters beyond the comic itself, but depending on how well this Patreon does that may change!




Even if you don't have the resources to donate, your continued interest in my comic means a whole lot to me. Thank you very much for visiting my page!

My heart, full of comic love, and the personal satisfaction of knowing the change in your couch is helping to keep Kidd Commander afloat.

Five dollars a month gets you the digital editions of each Kidd Commander volume as they become available! These are typically around 200 pages of comic goodness, plus whatever sketches and concept art seem appropriate.
