My name is Michael Bailey and I have been producing podcasts about comic books since June of 2007.  First there was Views From The Longbox, which has no set format and allows me to talk about whatever comic or character or whatever that I want to.  Then I started From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast with my friend Jeffrey Taylor.  FCTC is an index show where Jeff and I go through just about every Superman comic published between 1986 and 2006.  I also co-host Radio KAL Live with Steve Younis over at the Superman Homepage.  I've produced and/or been on a number of shows over the years including Bailey's Batman Podcast (which I produced alone), Tales of the Justice Society of America and Comics Monthly Monday (I co-hosted those shows with Scott Gardner and Chris Honeywell) and briefly appeared on the Spider-Man Crawlspace, PAD Smash: An Incredible Hulk Podcast and Xavier's Podcast For Gifted Youngsters (Dave Weter and Jon Wilson were involved in those last two shows).  

It's been an amazing decade with ups and downs and personal triumphs and tragedies and everything that goes along with life. Now I've changed how I do things and folded all of my shows under the umbrella of The Fortress of Baileytude Podcasting Network!  All of my current shows (which include The Overlooked Dark Knight, It All Comes Back To Superman, From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast, the occasional Fortress of Baileytude Showcase Presents and the even more occasional Views From The Longbox) can be found at the Fortress of Baileytude main page for convenience and to keep me from having to jump from site to site to update them.

To make paying for things like equipment (computers, microphones and other things that I never thought would wear out like my office chair) I have this Patreon in case you wanted to support my efforts. This is totally not a hard sell and I am not using this money to live the high life. It's simply to help me with the costs of producing the shows. To sweeten the pot I've broken the rewards down thusly:

Tier One:  I Like Mike  Cost: $1 a month

This is the most basic but it is more than appreciated.  This tier gets your name on the list of patrons at The Fortress and my eternal thanks.

Tier Two: I Really Like Mike  Cost: $5 a month

This tier gets your name up over at the main page plus the monthly Patreon Only podcast Fortress Commentaries. On the second Friday of every month you will receive a link to download a commentary I've recorded for something comic book related.  To start things off I will be going through every episode of SUPERMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES!

Tier Three: I Really, Really Like Mike  Cost: $10 a month

This tier gets your name listed over at the Fortress, the Fortress Commentaries Patreon-Only podcast plus another show called Bailey's Bookshelf. This will sent to you on the last Friday of the month and consists of an overview of one of the many trade paperbacks, hardcovers or Omnibuses I currently own. I did something similar years ago over on the Superman Homepage monthly podcast but this will be longer and more involved. It won't be a simple story overview. Oh no. I will dig into the collection and talk about the cover, the contents, the format and everything. Also Patrons at this level will get to choose the books I talk about!

Tier Four: I Freaking Love Mike  Cost: $20 a month

So you get your name on all of the sites, access to Fortress Commentaries, access to Bailey's Bookshelf and your name will be read at the top of every episode of It All Comes Back To Superman, Views and Fortress of Baileytude Showcase Presents as part of a, "This episode of (insert podcast name here) is brought to you by (fill in names here)," stinger at the beginning of the episode.

Again, there is no pressure in how much to give. I have had problems in the past getting my incentives out there but hopefully that's all behind me now. I appreciate each and every one of my patrons and thank you so much for thinking to support me.

Goals
$107 of $300 per month
If I hit $300 a month I will do a full commentary for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Extended Edition.  I was not a fan of this film but if you help me get to my goal I will not only do this commentary (which will be available exclusively to patrons) but I will have a 50/50 balance to what I say.  This means for every negative I will find a positive.
