Milo Neuman

is creating a Webcomic

Dimitra of the Silver Mask is an ongoing webcomic that follows the story of the sister Princesses Dimitra and Elena, and a huge ensemble cast of princes, poets, soldiers, thieves, outcasts, dragons, dwarfs and giants, as they attempt to navigate a world being torn apart by enmity and war.

This comic is a passion project I've been developing for some time (Re: Since High School) and in late 2018 I finally managed to get the first pages of it out to the public. Right now I'm splitting my time between the comic on one hand and my career in the Animation industry on the other. As a result, my updates are often late and, even when I do hit my modest goal of three pages every two weeks, I feel like I'm not getting the comic done at the pace I'd like.

That's where you come in.

With the support of you, my readers, I'll hopefully soon be able to turn this comic into my full time job. That would mean being able to devote all of my time and energy into the development and production of the comic, which would mean more pages for you, and it would be a dream come true for me. If you like the webcomic, and would like to see it update more frequently in the future, consider pledging a dollar or two to the cause. I've got some cool benefits planned for those of you who can donate a little, so hopefully I can make the expense worth your while too.

It's still the very early days of this project, and I can't wait to share more of what I have in store for you all. This is the start of a very long journey for me, and I'm very appreciative of any of you who might want to donate a bit to help make that trip possible. And for those of you who maybe aren't in the position to donate anything right now, that's alright! I'm just glad to have you along for the ride.

Thank you for you generosity! For one dollar a month you get my thanks, and access to the Official Dimitra of the Silver Mask discord channel.

The First Word Tier
$2 or more per month

For two dollars a month, you'll get to see each new page as it is finished! No waiting around till Monday.And if I have a buffer, that could put you way ahead of everyone reading the comic for free.


You also get access to the Official Discord Channel

The Dwarfin Scribe Tier
$5 or more per month

In this tier, you have a one up on all those two dollar tier folks! Get the black and white linework as soon as it's done, before I even get around to shading it.


Also all the previous tiers' rewards.

The Tapestry Weaver Tier
$10 or more per month

Hey big spender, for your generous contribution you get access to:

-All previous tiers

-monthly patreon exclusive wallpapers! Isn't that exciting?

Zharkavian Cartographer Tier
$15 or more per month

Hey guys, this is where we get to the fun stuff. In addition to all the previous tiers rewards, you also get access to generally spoiler free development content once or twice a month. This can include character designs, sketches, maps, bits of lore, history, religion, language... maybe even scans of some of my development notebooks. There's a lot of world building I'm doing, and this tier is your chance to ignore the big flaming head in the room and take a peek behind the curtain.

The Friendly Giant Tier
$25 or more per month

What a generous chap you are! I'm gobsmacked! In this tier, you get access to exclusive livestreams during which you can watch me work on character designs, wallpapers, commissions, and even new pages! You'll also be free to chat and ask questions, and I'll do my best to keep up with them as I work. This is the most spoiler-ific of reward tiers, so keep anything you learn here under your hat, you dig?


And of course, you get access to all the previous tiers, right. 

A Face in the Crowd Tier
$50 or more per month

Hey, here's an exciting one. For a one time donation of $50 you can get your face in the comic. Just send me your donation and a few pictures of your face, and I'll make sure a background character based on you appears in the comic as soon as possible!


You also get access to all the other tiers rewards, of course.


-Disclaimer: I'll do my best to capture your likeness as closely as possible, but I do reserve the right to change hair, costume, tattoos, piercings, etc to match the setting if I absolutely need to. I also reserve the right to decide where and when and how often your likeness will appear in the comic, and your donation does not entitle you to make any authorial or editorial decisions on the content of the comic. 


 Disclaimer 2: This one is limited to 1 per person, and I'll add you to the list as soon as your first 50 dollar donation is processed. Feel free to stay in this tier if you are just a generous soul and want to keep supporting the comic, but no worries if you are just here for the cameo ;) (That being said, if you wanted to get some family or friends' faces in the comic too as gifts or something, shoot me an email and we can work something out)

The Kazyara of the Castle Tier
$75 or more per month

Hey awesome, you are amazing! I'm blown away! For your generous donation, you get a black an white pen and ink drawing in the style of the comic of any one character of your choice. That can be one of my characters, one of your characters, spiderman, I don't know, whatever you want. I'll even mail it to you, and send you a digital copy, how does that hit you?


And I mean... yes, you get all those previous tiers' rewards too.

If you did want a second commission, feel free to take advantage of the 100 dollar tier as well.

The Two Kazyaras Tier

Okay, so this is like the previous tier, but this time you get TWO characters in your artwork, OR a simple background, how about that?


Also, all that previous stuff, EXCEPT for the 75 dollar tier reward.
