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.
Rewards
Production and backer blog plus early access!
$1 or more per month 3 patrons
You'll get access to process photos and the occasional plot teaser, as well as the occasional sketchy autobio comic I never show the world. May or may not include comics about my spawnling (spoiler, probably will occasionally).


Most importantly, you'll get the next page on Thursdays!

Time Capsule!
$5 or more per month 1 patron
On top of the blog and early access, you'll also get to read old mini-comics I've done, as well as access to OLD MagNorth stuff. Like, from the original run. Note: this does not include the original comic itself, at least until that goal is met.
Cards!
$10 or more per month 0 of 5 patrons
Get an actual, honest-to-goodness, drawn on paper and mailed to your house thank you/holiday/maybe it's your birthday card!

These cards aren't commissions, but I will take people's favorite characters into consideration when drawing them. (Tier includes backer blog and the time capsule, but not the monthly wallpaper.)

Monthly wallpaper

Every month you'll get a new wallpaper, as well as my deepest gratitude. (Gratitude may be delivered more than once or twice a week.) Also includes access to the production blog, early page access, and the time capsule.
Goals
$8 of $50 per month
I'll update the website and the cast page--and keep it updated for new characters within a page or two of their arrival (with exceptions for spoilery stuff).
