Nate Swinehart is creating leveL: A Webcomic

leveL is a good old fashioned sci-fi adventure webcomic. It follows the misadventures of a ragtag group of unlikely heroes trying to escape the futuristic megacity of Level. It is free to read online  at http://www.levelthecomic.com and updates every Monday.

I'm Nate Swinehart, just your average left-handed shaggy-haired slightly-insane animator guy living in San Francisco. I work fulltime as an animator but I spend every evening, weekend and lunch hour bringing the comic to life. This comic has been my labor of love for the past 15 years.

leveL began in the margins of my high school AP Euro History notebook and has since become the place where I express my thoughts, create a world to get lost in and impart my terrible sense of humor to the masses. What began as a fun, silly hobby launched my entire career in art. It deals with issues of identity, nostalgia, relationships and unwanted destructive superpowers. Yeah, it's a lot.  But I've set out to create a story my 17-year-old self would have obsessed over, laughed at and walked away from slightly better equipped for the world around him.  Hopefully your 17-year-old self can find a bit of that too.

I started leveL in 2001 and I have no intention in stopping until one of us ends. Over the years I've relieved an unbelievable outpouring of support from readers, and this enthusiasm is a big part of what keeps me going with the comic. So that's where this Patreon comes in! I wanted to create a way for dedicated readers to engage further with the comic, become invested and help me feel even more drive to keep going. I would love nothing more than for leveL to be my full-time gig, but until that time any support no matter how small will help keep me going. If you keep reading, I'll keep making pages!

I'm still figuring this whole Patreon thing out, so bear with me, but please know that any support you can spare is appreciated beyond belief, and that I'm so excited for us all to take this crazy, weird epic journey together.
