Hi, my name is Rob Clough. I've been writing comics criticism for fifteen years now, in places like Studygroup Magazine, Savant, The Comics Journal, Cicada, Sequart, Foxing Quarterly, Sequential Magazine and the Poopsheet Foundation. Of course, my home base for a decade has been my own High-Low site: http://highlowcomics.blogspot.com  I've been providing criticism about comics from across the alternative/indy spectrum, including shedding light on new artists, short-run minicomics, YA comics, and of course the major releases from Fantagraphics, Drawn & Quarterly, etc. Anyone who's been following my blog for the past six months has seen that I've been adding reviews five days a week.

Now I'd like to make the time and effort that goes into that work a little more sustainable. I plan to keep four of my reviews per week free, but the fifth review will be patrons-only. Other rewards will include a monthly google hangouts group Q&A, a one-on-one video Q&A, and the ability to vote on what comic you want me to review in a given week. There will be other rewards in the future that I can't talk about quite yet, but you can be a part of some exciting opportunities that I've given. Thanks so much for your time and consideration!
