Welcome to the official Corner the Maze Patreon!

Corner the Maze is a long-form urban fantasy webcomic with a touch of horror, following the adventures of Chimalli Ramírez, a racing driver who finds himself stranded in another dimension after veering off track during a sudden rain storm. Featuring fast cars, demons, undead knights, other dimensions, and more!

Corner the Maze has been running since August 2016 without missing an update!


(read the prologue here!)

So who are you, anyway?

My name is Morgan Lees, and I'm the creator of Corner the Maze. I do all the writing, scripting, and art, as well as anything else that needs doing! I'm a freelance illustrator who has dabbled in writing, theatre, and web design over the years.



Corner the Maze is part of a set of stories that I've been working on for a really long time now (close to twenty years!), and it's been awesome to start sharing them. I'm excited for what will come next!


(a recent comic page)

The comic can be read online for free and I don't plan to change that (or add any advertisements to the site), so its existence relies on the support of you, the reader!

Why should I support Corner the Maze?

Because you want to see the comic continue and grow, and you're in a position to be able to help out!

Making this comic is a lot of work, even though I work quickly. In a typical week, I spend two to three whole working days on the comic. One day is taken up with pencilling future pages, and one or two days are devoted to inking pages (which includes scanning, cleaning up, and lettering). That's about half the week, sometimes the whole available week. I don't have anyone helping me with this, so it's all on me.

I work hard to keep a good two-month buffer going, and haven't missed an update yet in two years, but this all still means that it's often hard to fit other work in along with doing the comic. If I've got paying illustration work or web design work, those have to be the first priority at the moment -- but what I'd love more than anything is to be able to work on the comic and other projects in this world full time.

So if you become a Patron of Corner the Maze, you're helping that dream come true, you help make the comic better, and you also get cool stuff!



Cool stuff, eh? Like what?

From $1/month on up you get access to rewards, because I want to make sure that you get something out of supporting the comic to show how awesome it is that you're helping the comic continue and how much I appreciate it!

Rewards include access to the Patron feed (which includes behind-the-scenes content), monthly wallpapers, collected full-resolution chapter .pdfs as they come out, and more!

F.A.Q

How does Patreon work?

There are a couple of different models, but this Patreon page works as a monthly subscription. This is really important for me and a lot of other creators, because freelance income is often unpredictable!

The reward tiers are all listed on the right side of the page. You can select what reward you want when you click on the "become a Patron" button, choosing from all the rewards at or below the amount of money you're pledging per month. (You can select no reward, too, if you want.)

You can pledge as much or as little as you like, down to $1/month, and cancel at any time.



When are rewards delivered? When is payment processed?


Payments are processed at the beginning of each month, starting on the 1st of that month. Wallpapers are delivered in the first week of every month. Other rewards typically come in the middle of the month. Chapter .pdfs and print volumes are as they come out.

Once you've pledged, you have access to all posts available to your reward tier. So, for example, if you sign up at any amount, you'll see all the behind-the-scenes posts and wallpapers since this page got started. That's almost two years of stuff at this point!

I don't really want to pay monthly, but I do want to support the comic. Is there a way I could do that?

Sure! You can cancel your pledge at any time, but you could also send a few dollars to my PayPal account ([email protected]). Thanks!

Voting on TopWebcomics always helps, too, and that's free!

If you have other questions, you can check out the Patreon Help Center.

I hope you enjoy reading Corner the Maze. Thanks so much for checking this page out!
