Hello you wonderful person bothering to even read this page! I'm Kez. I make webcomics! I'm also an MD/PhD student in Upstate NY, an avid martial artist, and likely a bit crazy. The webcomic I'm currently making is called What it Takes. It's a long-form (story) comic that follows one rough and ready 'gal named Colbey, as she hunts through a post-apocalyptic world looking for a guy named Peter Wolfe. Instead of zombie-outbreak, think science-conspiracy. But don't let that scare you, because there's plenty of violence. Which reminds me, this comic is rated R!


What I've usually done:

I've been making webcomics for over 10 years now (like I said, I'm likely a bit crazy), and occasionally I've offered certain incentives for people to support those comics. For example, I often offer extra updates, downloadable content, or wallpapers.


What I'd like to do [with this Patreon]:

While it's nice to make a bit of money doing extra work atop unpaid work, it's even better to get paid to do the original work. And, well, comics are work. I make content that you hopefully enjoy. And if you enjoy it enough, and are financially secure enough, and are generous enough, it would be really awesome of you to send a dollar or two my way. In return, I will keep doing what I've been doing for the past ten years, and finish up What it Takes. Everything earned with this Patreon will be saved to help print the comic upon completion. Previously it was a 50/50 split, with half the proceeds used to help treat my precious dog for cancer, but as it the case with hemangiosarcoma, Indy went fast.  Fuck cancer.

The recommended amount per person to donate is $2. All patrons will get access to the What it Takes pages early (as they are completed) in the patron-only feed.

Wow, you're a really awesome reader, thank so much! Not only will I add your name to the thank you page, but you get to ask the cast questions, and get them answered! Each month 1-4 cast questions will be answered in illustrated form, and this is patron only!

Are you crazy? Why would you give this much? Drat, looks like I'll have to give you access to ALL the What it Takes downloadable content (3 comics, 1 piece of prose) if you don't have it already. And give you complimentary access to any I make in the future, for as long as you remain a patron.

Well, it happened, so I'm making one! If you pledge this much to support me, you can save up credit toward an annual commission by me. 50% of this value will be banked on your behalf each month for a maximum of $50/4 months, which covers a single subject with simple background, full-color, print-quality, digital commission.  You also get the $10 portrait reward and access to all the What it Takes DLC.
Goals
$91 of $100 per month
Same as above, but now two. I make ~$10/page each month.
