Michael Jantze is creating "The Norm" comic strip

My Patreon goal is to fund the The Norm comic strip, a continuation of my syndicated comic The Norm, published since 1996. In 2019, I want to use your collective support to reserve more time to make comics.

I believe cartoons speak to people more easily than any other form of art, with economy and accuracy, to get to the heart of the matter and do it with a laugh. I'm funny that way.

THE NOW
In 2019, I'll focus my energy on making  "The Norm 4.0" comic on GoComics and getting the first comic collection printed and distributed. 

THE PAST
I wrote and drew The Norm daily for 11 years, but animation projects eventually outpaced my comics earnings and I made the logical jump. 

The Norm "Knocked Out Loaded" print booked shipped to the 500+ Indiegogo supporters this year. The remainder of the books are sold there exclusively.

THE 2019 BENNIES
The Norm 4.0 is published at gocomics.com/jantze. Norm and Reine have two kids, two jobs, two dogs, two sets of parents and too much to do. Sound familiar?  The Norm 1.0 and 2.0 (classics) are on GoComics, as well. Your support here keeps the comics there free.

Occasional peeks into my process, you know, writing, drawing, penciling, inking, swearing.  

Exclusive peeks: If you support at the $5 TIER, you also have access to my monthly studio hangouts. The $10 TIER gets you on the list for my studio trash. The $25 TIER gets you one original strip every 12 months. 

The Norm 4.0 Comic Collection was funded Spring of 2019. If you're a patron here, you'll get something exclusive and sweet when you support the book!

To all of you who have supported me these past few years, thank you so much! It's an open dialogue, please stay in touch and let me know what you like and don't like. I appreciate your support.
