About



July 1, 2019 Update - We now have a store featuring our first remastered issue Gale: The Calm - the Cosmic Love Edition.  

https://gumroad.com/9muse

Gale Patrons get free access to the new digital copy. Check out this post to see how.

March 23, 2019 Update - Special thanks to Jennie Wood for the incredible endorsement! If you haven't already done so, check out her award winning comic series Flutter.



Who are we?

We are the Gale Team - now known by our publishing name 9Muse.

Seth Greenwood is the creator and writer of Gale. Angela Zhang draws the pages and creates most of the promotional visuals like the trailer above.  

The team met through Twitter two years ago and we discovered that we had the same passion for turning realistic, character driven stories into comics. For the last two years, both of us have worked on nights and weekends to make the Gale comic a reality.  

Because of your support, we're now a team of four. Carlos Campos flats the comic pages and prepares the digital files for painting. Jordan Kirian joined as the letterer for Chapter 2. He also writes and draws his own comics and has contributed an article on noir

For those of you who have been following the Gale comic journey over the years, we want to thank you for your encouragement and continued support. Seriously, every pledge, comment, and like means the world to us. 

What is the Gale comic about?
Our story takes place in an alternate reality of Seattle, Washington, where rookie attorney Gale Norman is determined to seek out the truth behind his father’s mysterious death. As Gale’s suspicions grow, buried memories of his mother’s disappearance resurface and he refuses to hide from his dark past. With the help of his childhood friend, Laurie Gambill, Gale attempts to solve a seemingly ordinary mystery that could lead his life to spiral out of control. Will he uncover the truth to his parents' demise or will he become further entangled in the web of countless lies?



Where can I read Gale?

Gale is available to read for free on Webtoon! We've adapted episodes from the pages of Ch 1: The Calm and Ch 2: Storm Chaser so that readers can enjoy the story on their mobile devices and/or computer. The conclusion of Storm Chaser will be released on Webtoon in the fall of 2019. Patreons will get super early access to finished pages. 

On Instagram, we're also reloading Ch 1: The Calm panel by panel. So if you're new to the Gale series this is a good way to catch up.    

Why Patreon?
We've decided to make and publish Gale independently. Patreon is a way to help indie creators like us pay our team so that we can devote more time to create top-notch content. Our dream is to make the Gale comic into a 9 volume book series where every panel is a painting. Each volume will include roughly 75-100 pages. Your support will help us get there!

How does the payment system work?
As of August 2019, we have switched to a pay per month model. This means you as our patron will be charged once at the beginning of each month at your chosen tier level. Every month we aim to finish 2 Gale pages (like the one below) as well as four podcast episodes which documents our journey of not only making comics but also on the business-y side of social media, marketing and getting ourselves out there as indie creators.
