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 2018, I want to use your collective support to reserve more time to make comics.

If you don't know Patreon, it bills you monthly, takes a slice (from me) for the effort and gives us tools to stay in touch.

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 2018, I'll focus my energy on making  "The Norm 4.0" comic on GoComics, and develop some new characters and stories and share them with you here. 

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. Nowhere else.

THE 2018 BENNIES
The Norm 4.0 is Norm and Reine with two kids. They're published (for all to read for free) at gocomics.com/jantze. The Norm 1.0 and 2.0 (Classics) are on gocomics, as well.

Occasional peeks into my process, you know, writing, drawing, penciling, inking and swearing.  And if you support at the $5 TIER, I do monthly studio hangouts.

Exclusive peeks into some future stories! Characters with names like Lyle, Mimi, Gus, Rex, Merlin, MC, and the Sandman.

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 so much.

Every patron gets a sketch. All of you. No kidding. You say that sounds ridiculously easy for you and a lot of work for me? Try me. But we'll need more patrons, so share this with all your friends.
