Q: What is DRIVE?

A:  DRIVE is a humorous sci-fi comic set in humanity's galactic age. It's the goofiness of "Hitchhiker's Guide" set in a "Dune"-scale story. The Post-Standard says "The story is serious. The characters are hilarious."



Q: Why Patreon?

Patreon makes DRIVE possible. It's that simple. DRIVE is independently made, without a publisher or corporate backing...or even site advertising! SO YOUR DIRECT SUPPORT MAKES IT ALL POSSIBLE. Please join this awesome, energetic community of fellow readers, and directly support art you love.

Q: How does Patreon work? What am I pledging?
A: The DRIVE Patreon works like this: Every month you're pledging to donate a small amount and in return you'll get to read DRIVE strips early, plus other perks, and join a community of other DRIVE fans! Learn more at Patreon's FAQ.


Q: What about the guest stories told by other comic pros, "Tales of the Drive"?
A: Included in your monthly pledge you will get to read these comics, AND the artist will all be paid! Paying guest artists is the right thing to do.

Q: If I don't support DRIVE on Patreon, will the strip...disappear?
A: DRIVE will never "go away", but make no mistake: DRIVE IS POWERED BY PATREON. More strips, more updates, more features...Patreon makes it all possible.
