Mark Pain is creating Comics
6
patrons
$23
per every 12 comics
IMPORTANT: I am currently on hiatus and although I hope to update when I can, please be aware content will be rare and that patrons are therefore not being charged. You can still become a patron if you wish - I will interpret this as a vote for making more comics a higher priority.

Hi friends! I'm Mark Pain and I've been writing and drawing the comic 'Pain Train', alone, in the dark, 6 days a week for over three years now! I offer those comics to you online for free on my own site as well as several social medias. To put it into context, think of how the ancient Aztec people made ritual sacrifices to appease the god of the dead. It's exactly like that.



Like so many others, I'd really, REALLY like to make a living this way (making comics - not ritual sacrifices) and, also like so many others, I'm hoping you can help bring me a little closer to that dream!  As you may be aware, website advertising is on the way out and shirts, buttons and books aren't for everyone. You could even call them clutter, or space-murderers.



So! We turn our gaze to the digital realm for DIGITAL rewards! This makes sense as the content you enjoy is also in this realm. Why didn't we(they) think of this(that) sooner?!

Bottom line? I'll do this forever if you'll let me, but I can't do it without your support so thank you for considering my plea as I direct your attention to the goals and rewards, and throw myself upon the mercy of the court, amen.



(P.S. I only have the one 'goal' so far and three rewards so if you have suggestions for further tiers, let me know!)

Update (September-2015): As I haven't had time lately to make all 12 comics I would usually make in a month, I've changed the payment system from 'monthly' to 'every 12 comics'. This way you get the same amount of content but won't be charged until you get it. You will never be charged more than once per month.

Tiers
Pledge $1 or more per every 12 comics
Gratuitous Gratitude! I will write down your name and your fellow patron's names and then recite that list as I fall asleep.
Pledge $3 or more per every 12 comics
Early Access To Each Strip! Typically 4-5 days before they are published anywhere else!
Plus:
  • Gratuitous Gratitude! I will write down your name and your fellow patron's names and then recite that list as I fall asleep.

Pledge $5 or more per every 12 comics
Explanations! (to coincide with early access) where I explain why I made each new strip the way I made it - detailing any changes I made to early drafts and why, accompanied by relevant screen shots!



Plus:
  • Early access to each strip! Typically 4-5 days before they are officially published anywhere!

I only have a couple ads on the site but you can consider them GONE if this goal is met! (does not apply to the server-pals box)
