Hi! My name is Nathaniel Burney, and I make the Illlustrated Guide to Law webcomic. It's all about debunking myths and explaining complex ideas with a bunch of silly pictures. So far I've covered all of criminal law (stuff like entrapment, murder, conspiracy) and right now I'm plugging away at criminal procedure (search and seizure, confessions, etc.) Constitutional law and plenty of other topics are in the works!

The comic's a lot of fun to do, and it's gotten tons of praise from the likes of Cory Doctorow, Harvard Law School, and the media. My readers have some really cool discussions in the "class participation" section, which is an added bonus.

By becoming a patron, you'll be ensuring more frequent updates. This comic isn't my day job, and sometimes it can be days or even weeks until the next page can go up. A little extra cash would free me up to spend more time on putting out some quality work.

Patrons will also get various rewards, based on their pledge level. Feel free to suggest other rewards you might like.

Don't worry, the comic is still free to read -- I can't abide paywalls. Just think of this as a nicer kind of tip jar.

Thank you for your support, and keep on reading!

The High-Rez Reward

None of this dinky 700x850, crappy 72dpi screen resolution nonsense. No sir! You want to see these comics in their full 2800x3400 300dpi glory!

Well, now you can. All supporters at this level and above get access to my "creations" stream, where you can download the high-resolution versions of each page. Heck, yeah!

Plus, when I'm drawing several pages in advance, you'll get to see them as they're completed, instead of having to wait for them to be posted.

Custom Doodle [NEW, October 2015]

In addition to the hi-rez posts, I'll also email you a custom digital doodle of any Illustrated Guide character you like, doing whatever you please!

Commission Some Art [NEW, October 2015]

In addition to the hi-rez posts, I'll create a high-resolution digital illustration of pretty much anything you want. Abraham Lincoln riding a grasshopper into battle? Sure! A bloodthirsty barbarian in love? No problem! Your imagination's the limit.

I work on this in my free time, so updates can be irregular and sometimes far apart. But at this level, no matter what my schedule, you'll be sure to get an update every week.
