Hi there, I’m Jenn Manley Lee, best known for my long-running award nominated webcomic, Dicebox. And it’s Dicebox that brings me to Patreon.



What is Dicebox?
Dicebox follows Griffen and Molly through an eventful year of their lives where they start out as a couple of itinerant factory workers in a space-traveling future. 

There will be four books of Dicebox. Book 1 : Wander is complete and available in print; Book 2 : Chase is half-done. All of Dicebox is and will be free and available online, with 350+ pages in the archive and at more than that again to go.



Some praise for Dicebox
“Molly and Griffen are blue-collar workers in space looking for work and avoiding past mistakes. Jenn Manley Lee's unique brand of science fiction – part slice of life, part travelogue – is daring, refreshing, whip-smart, and gloriously entertaining.”
Barry Deutsch, author of Hereville

“In Jenn Manley Lee's elegant pages, the mysteries of the universe are matched by the mysteries of the human mind. Dicebox is science fiction done right.” 
– Scott McCloud, author of Making Comics & Understanding Comics

“Dicebox is banal. No, hear me out: there’s a bunch of people hopping from planet to planet aboard this spaceship or that, surrounded by amazing things, and yet to them it’s all completely ordinary and sometimes even boring. Their everyday nuisances are miracles to us, and Dicebox drops us in the middle of all of this, right there with them, to make our way as best we can, and I am so very happy for the chance to do so.”
Carla Speed McNeil, author of Finder

"Dicebox is different.

"Now, a lot of people say that about a lot of things, but in this case, I swear to you I haven’t read anything I can say is like Dicebox. Sure, it’s definitely a Space Opera. It’s definitely a comic. But it reads like your life."

Where Will Your Money Go?
The money I get through this Patreon campaign will go to buying my time to do Dicebox. That is, instead of being obligated to take on paid, non- Dicebox work in order to meet life’s expenses, I can spend more time making more Dicebox per month and still buy groceries, pay rent, web hosting, etc. The goals to the left reflect how much story I can produce per month with money pledged.

Not only will Dicebox pages appear more frequently thanks to you, but you will also get the occasional glimpse into my process in the blog.

With you lot I will share sketches, process and notes on Dicebox and any other project I might be working on in locked blog posts.

Also, after I complete my pages for the month, I will take up an art challenge, drawing a subject chosen at random from patrons at this level and up.
Let me get you something
$6 or more per month 15 patrons
In addition to the rest, once a month I will select a piece of art to turn into a hi-res 8” x10” file available to download and print out, turn into a screensaver, etc. This might be an exceptional panel from the previous month’s Dicebox, art from another project or an original piece.

Have a complimentary PDF of Book 1 of Dicebox: Wander as soon as you join.


You will also have access to a continuously updating  PDF of Book 2: Chase (200+ pages so far).  Every couple of months,  I will update the PDF with whatever new pages I've done plus extra material such as pages notes.

Please, stay awhile.

Anyone who pledges at this level will be drawn as a background character within Dicebox. In additional, you'll get a print of a page your doppelgänger appears in and a very good chance to name the character.


The earlier you pledge at this level, the more significant role your look-a-like will get.

Goals
$406 of $1,200 per month
