Hello my dears,
welcome to the Patreon page for my webcomic “Marlena Meets Sosimus”.

Maybe you’ve already seen my comic on tapas.io or smackjeeves.com, or you’ve just stumbled over it here, in any case I appreciate each visitor.


So what’s this all about?

A girl psychic, her ghost friend, many weird humans and ghosts, a firedemon, an old family curse (ban) and lots of 80’s fun!
Sounds interesting? You can read the first chapter here for free! There will be a new
page every week.


Here is a short synopsis:

Vermont, USA in the 1980s. Marlena and Sosimus live in a small town called Little Phoenix, the two have been best friends since childhood. They would be normal teenagers if it wasn’t for a little detail: Sosimus actually is a ghost.
But the only person who knows about this is Marlena, who has in vain tried to get in touch with other ghosts since she met Sosimus. But suddenly, after the two have encountered a strange old man, some paranormal incidents take place.


Why an 80’s ghost story? Because I love the 80’s and I love ghosts! Anymore questions :D?!


Of course there are other reasons why I draw this comic, I’ve actually been working on the characters and the plot for several years now.


Why Patreon?

I know some people are slightly annoyed by now that there are so many Patreon pages, but for us artists it’s a great opportunity to make a bit of money with our work. I’ve got a day job as a graphic designer and illustrator and although I love my job, my comic is what I care about the most, so naturally I’d like to spend more time doing it. The greater the number of readers who support this comic, the fewer design and illustration jobs I have to take and the more time I can put into working on my comic. It’s my goal to be able to offer two pages per week eventually and of course I’d like to create some nice merchandise and specials for you.

A longterm goal is possibly being able to afford some assistance, i.e. someone who’ll aid me with the coloring and lettering, because, dear readers who don’t draw comics, let me tell you that a comic page requires a lot of work, even though reading it only takes a few seconds.

Also, there’s the script (yes, I’m doing that :D), storyboard, character designs, covers and so on.

To quote Mabel Pines from Gravity Falls: "It’s covered in my blood, sweat, tears and other fluids.“ Urrrggg, well, you get the picture.

Of course you can continue to read the comic for free on Tapas and Smackjeeves, and German-speaking readers can still read the comic for free in German on www.marlenameetssosimus.com.
