About Michael Manning

Greetings and welcome to my Patreon page!

In case you aren't familiar with my work, I've been writing, drawing, and publishing erotic/fetish art and comix since 1987. My best known works are the Spider Garden and Tranceptor graphic novels series (NBM/Amerotica) and two art collections Lumenagerie and Inamorata: The Erotic Art of Michael Manning (Last Gasp).

There are many places online where you can see samples of my work: my online store MM Art, my Tumblr gallery, my Facebook artist page, my Instagram, and The Spider Garden - an archival site with art, interviews, costume designs, and more.

So if you like dark complex erotica in a retro-futuristic setting with original characters and a heavy dose of fetish, BDSM, gender-fluid sexuality, interspecies romance, etc. Well, then… Pleased to meet you, friend. :^)

The world of the Spider Garden encompasses all of the elements above and is my favorite thing to draw. Those who are familiar with the Garden know that there are a wealth of experiences yet to explore. With your support through Patreon I can devote as much time to it as possible.

My plans for the series include continuing the story I established in the first four Spider Garden graphic novels, introducing new characters, and exploring side stories set in the same world. This will lead up to a future gallery exhibit featuring new original paintings and drawings. I’m also planning to release a remastered compilation volume of the first four Spider Garden graphic novels (several are currently out of print) with new story pages.

Please check out the different levels of rewards I'm offering, choose the one that works best for you, and join me as I continue to explore the erotic world of the Spider Garden.

As always, thank you for your support.

$1,005.43 of $2,000 per month
My current goal is $2,000 per month. This will enable me meet my basic living expenses (rent, bills, food, art supplies) and focus on the work that's most important to me (and you) - exploring the world of the Spider Garden!
