Who am I?
My name is Anthony Pike and I create Anthony Has An Episode, the barely-autobiographical web comic recklessly enhanced with an injection of Imagination&Lies™ at dosage levels not recommended by your doctor.

I also create print comic books (such as The Legend of SwashbuculaBlombo Tales and The Zombie Apocalypse Anticipation Party of Australia as well as other flights of creative whimsy.

Some of the early tiers of support will allow me to produce comic pages more often and once we reach the "Woo, I am a Caffeine Wizard!" support milestone I will also make my short-series and standalone comics available online with a new page every fortnight - beginning with The Legend of Swashbucula - and moving onto my other comics once Swashbucula has concluded.

All of these creations I provide for free and will continue doing so, I love doing them and I love that people enjoy them but your support on Patreon will allow me more time to focus on making this things, I'll be able to worry about less things and make more stuff. Plus there are a lot of goodies you will get as a supporter.

Hold on, What is Patreon?
Patreon is a little similar to some other crowd-funding sites you may know, except instead of contributing a large amount of money to a finished project you are contributing a regular but affordable amount of money to an ongoing project. You choose how much you would like to contribute and you decide when to stop.
