Welcome to wonderland.

 
I'm Jess Herron and I write and draw the webcomic Midnight Furies, a story about basketball and how you can't avoid growing up even when you can avoid growing old. I'm a RISD-trained animator living in the oh-so-sunny Pacific Northwest of the US, working freelance as an illustrator and UX designer.




Midnight Furies


The Midnight Games is an underground basketball tournament where players can compete for time added onto their lives. Zoe is a high school dropout desperate for any way to play the game- but her teammate, Chase, has her own reasons for being in the tournament, reasons that could ruin a lot more for Zoe than just the game.

Midnight Furies is a coming-of-age story caught up in a revenge plot. If you could put Slam Dunk, Kill la Kill, and Spiderverse in a blender, you’d have this comic. (And a really weird guacamole.)

Why Become a Patron?


You're really interested in seeing a gal-driven sports comic with some mystery and romance thrown in, right? HAHA ME TOO fancy that. But scratching that itch requires a great deal of time and effort, not to mention rent and food.  For your support in helping me become a full-time webcomic creator, you'll get early access to pages, Discord access to chat with me and other fans, and you can see the behind-the-scenes blog!

Your pledge really makes a difference! The life of a freelancer is never set in stone, nor is the time I'll have to make comics.  I'm trying to keep my day job flexible enough so that I can produce as many pages as I can, and your support goes a long way to making that happen! As I'm able to devote even more of my time to the comic, we'll get the chance to unlock more goals and rewards.



Can I Make a One-Time Donation?

Yes, absolutely! Just hit here for my paypal link. You won't get all the behind-the-scenes goodies, but you'll certainly have my enthusiastic gratitude! 

Your support means the world to me and I can't wait to put all of my time and energy into this series. Thank you so much!

Goals
$76 of $500 per month
When we hit this goal, I'll add a drawing request tier, where the higher tiers can suggest characters (or AUs of MidFury characters!) they want me to draw, and then all of the patrons will vote monthly on which one will get drawn that month.
