Magnetic North is a comic about a bunch of idiot teenagers trying real hard to prove to themselves and everyone else that they're not just idiot teenagers. The story follows Steve, Roy, and Jugsy through their first year out of high school and through just about all the normal crap that happens when people start assuming you're an adult (jobs, relationships, apartments, roommates, college, the usual), and you're not quite sure what that means. Magnetic North is a full color, full page comic that updates once weekly.

As for me, I'm Kat. I'm previously a baker, currently a full time mom, and I will never have enough time for this comic, even if I got to work on it every minute of my day. Even the sleeping ones. I come from the small town I've based the comic in, and while I don't live there anymore, I do remember what being 19 and carless was like there.

On top of paying someone to watch my kid so I can work on the comic, supporting me means I can upgrade my equipment (my tablet is 10 years old, and I work 100% in photoshop, also my computer chair randomly does death drops), I can upkeep the site (you know, any information besides the comic itself), and pay bills.

*whatever sketches I do throughout the month

*auto-bio comics

*any other comics I've done lately, you get them super first


You'll also get the early pages.

Time Capsule
$5 or more per month 1 patron
I have a bunch of ye olde Magnetic North content, some of it not relevant to this time line. This is where you get it.


In addition to old art, there will also be a themed piece of new character art every month, decided by vote.


You'll also get the production blog, et all, and the early pages.

Mail club
$10 or more per month 0 of 5 patrons
Every month, you'll get a hand drawn card/postcard mailed to your physical person.


Is it February? You're gonna get a valentine.

Is it July? You're probably gonna get a card about fireworks.

Is it October? You're gonna get a Halloween card. Or an Indigenous Peoples card. Or a Columbus was a Dick card. You get the idea.


You will get to request the character on your card, and you will also get access to all other tiers (early pages, time capsule, production blog, et all)

Goals
$8 of $50 per month
Website makeover!
All site pages will be updated and finished. Including the ones I've never bothered to make in the first place. And I'll make a MagNorth discord because that's what all the cool kids are doing.
