My name's Dave Barrack and
I'm creating Grrl Power.


It's a slice of life comic about superheroines, focusing not so much on superhero battles (though that does happen), but on characters, humor, having fun with the genre tropes and sometimes I slip in a pop-culture reference here or there.

Thanks to everyone's support, the comic now updates on Mondays and Thursdays! Being a full color comic page instead of a 4 panel strip means they take a lot of time to create, so I'm pretty tapped out at two a week, but who knows, maybe one day I can bump it up to 3 a week or maybe even do a Grrl Power After Dark spinoff. The ultimate goal of course is to trade my car in for a flying solid gold palanquin while being waited on by a plethora of piñatas, I mean... tanned attendants, but one step at a time.

With enough support I could hire a colorist, do the comic full time, or even both, all of which would mean more comics. Good for me, good for you guys.

Here's some of the fun that's been
had so far, in no particular order:

Happiness for me and satisfaction for you! Also it's a good way to support the comic if you read the comic through RSS or run ad blockers. Now also high(er) res versions of the comic!

Happiness and validation for both of us. Mostly me though.

All of the very substantial rewards from the previous levels, plus an e-book of the first book once it's complete.
Pledge $10 or more per month
55 patrons
All previous rewards plus I will post previews of upcoming pages exclusively for backers at this level on the Patreon feed. Usually just pencils for a panel from a page and as non-spoilery as possible.
Pledge $20 or more per month

I'm adding this level... just in case. Not sure what the reward will be yet. I may have to take a vote among participants. Right now I'm leaning toward a free copy of the book once that becomes available.

All previous rewards plus a cameo of either you or a character of yours in the comic. If it's you I can work you in as a background character, If it's a character of yours, it will have to fit in with the story so it may require some patience, and may likely be in one of Sydney's daydreams or whatever works. Also I'll buy you a beer (or other drink of your choice) at whatever convention we can meet up at. Currently my only regular convention is A-kon in Dallas, but that will be expanded once I have a book to sell.

This is one of those in between milestones cause it'll probably be a while before I hit the next one. I'll ditch one of the ads on the page, and... I don't know but I feel I should do something else too. My time is super tapped out as it is though, so I'm not sure what else I can do that doesn't take time away from making the comic.
