Thanks so much for checking me out!

Summary: I'm M. Alice LeGrow, also known as Marty, and I'm a professional comics artist.  I have a bachelor's degree in comics, I read comics, I sleep comics, I eat comics!  My previous comic series published by Tokyopop, called Bizenghast, ran for 8 graphic novel volumes and just recently celebrated its ten-year anniversary!  Wow!  I feel both accomplished and horribly old.

I'm starting a new daily blog based on the world of Bizenghast, in which the residents of the local guild record their daily activities.  If you've never read the series before, you might not know that "daily activities" for the town of Bizenghast can consist of anything from "weekend book fair" to "destruction by psychic earthquake," and the most fascinating residents are often the least likely to be alive.  For the people of Bizenghast, when life ends, adventure begins! 

This blog will be updated every single day, rain or shine, at 7:30 PM (Eastern Standard time).  Updates will include the daily record of goings-on in Bizenghast and its surrounding areas, plus archived records, afterlife announcements, maps, sketches, secret codes, drawings and many other special features.  An ongoing story-arc will be threaded throughout the lifetime of the blog, and patrons can write in to ask questions or make comments to the characters themselves.

With your support, I can release daily new and entertaining content, posts, and eventually fund an online web-comic series! 


If you want to become a patron of mine, you can choose one of the pledge levels below!  Any amount is greatly appreciated and will be rewarded with my thanks and some special content.

Patrons have access to the Patron-only section of my blog, which is a little community where I can talk one on one with blog followers, post patron-only content and have a special feed just for those who support this blog! I'm really excited to be able to get involved with the patron community and find new and fun ways to create rewards for your support and generosity!

Patrons can ask questions of the residents of Bizenghast. 
The mail delivery is a little slow and unreliable in the secluded town of Bizenghast, but anyone who donates five dollars or more per month to the blog can get their letters forwarded to a resident in a timely manner!  Residents will answer privately, as well as respond to selected letters right on the blog.

Patrons can ALWAYS change their pledge amount...if you want to donate more or less that month, you can! It's easy and fast to do!

If you have to leave and can no longer be a patron, you can stop pledging any time! I understand completely and I'm super grateful for all you've been able to do!


Just a little bit from you will add up to help me support my passion and help fund future projects, including a proposed web-comic series!  There's no need for you to pledge at all...you're free to read this blog and enjoy it without donating!  But if you want to support my work, I'd be absolutely thrilled if you did!

Thank you all SO MUCH, I really appreciate your kindness and generosity in this endeavor!
