I'm Dan Shive, the creator of the bizarre comic El Goonish Shive. EGS is a comedy about a group of friends dealing with magic, alien technology, immortal beings plotting drastic changes to the world as we know it...

But if you're here, you probably already know that! You also probably know that the comic has a sub-section known as EGS:NP that stopped updating in 2010. I'd like to bring it back, but It would normally be difficult for me to justify the time it would take to regularly create new EGS:NP comics. With your help, however, I'll have the ultimate excuse to have no excuse to not make more EGS:NP comics!

...That was confusing. Bottomline: Funding = more EGS:NP comics! Check out the Milestone Goals in the left column of this page for details. Individual rewards are below and designed to reward people while still ultimately sharing any new EGS content with everyone.

Access to various Patreon-first posts that will initially be exclusive to $3+ patrons, meaning things I will post here before I post them anywhere else. This could include additional commentary, sketches, preview images of the EGS:NP comics, over-sized panels... Basically, anything cool I can think to post here. Exclusivity to $3+ patrons will last at least 24 hours, more likely longer.

Same as $3, but you will have the option to vote in various polls and participate in special surveys. Most notably, polls to choose characters and forms for the $2.5 / 3k milestones, and surveys to see what choices people might be interested in for those polls.

Please note that the options available in such polls will be chosen by Dan, though patron responses to prior surveys may influence those options.

The "Dan's choice" becomes two. Either two comics, two images, or a comic and an image. Single images have same character / variant count options as in previous milestone.
