Hi! I'm Kelly Tindall, a freelance cartoonist from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. For over four years now, I've been updating my dual webcomics Strangebeard and The Adventurers every week and paying for the time, hosting, and materials entirely out of pocket. Now, my family is growing and my bills are increasing, and it's becoming harder and harder to keep putting out free comics when mouths need to be filled and lights need to be kept on.

That's where you come in!

For a nominal monthly fee, you're helping me keep my family fed and my pencils sharp. For a modest monthly fee, you'll get a totally sweet monthly PDF sketchbook called Pirate Week Monthly, full of unpublished comics and sketchbook work.

Strangebeard is the rollicking story of Jenny Brigham, who on the night of her twelfth birthday is possessed by the ghost of the Pirate Emperor Augustus Strangebeard. She gains his magical powers, but also the loyalty of his duplicitous crew! Now, Jenny must head for the high seas and take her place as Pirate Empress before the seven Pirate Masters who killed the first Strangebeard put an end to her as well.

The Adventurers is my diary comic, detailing my life with my wife and our two little girls. My oldest daughter says the most wonderful and peculiar things, and I decided long ago it'd be a crime not to document them.

Look, let's be real; I'll keep updating whether you help or not. I really love making comics, and I'd love it if you'd be able to help. Check out the rewards and see for yourself!

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and please pass around the word to your friends, family, and crew. Eye eyeball!

Goals
$100 – reached! per month
If we can make it to $100/month, I will draw all-new covers to each chapter of Strangebeard and release them as downloadable 'individual issue' PDFs for every subscriber at the $5+ level!
