About Neal Bailey
In that time, I’ve made innumerable novels, comics, screenplays, poetry collections, short stories, over a thousand essays, and even a children’s book.
I am most known for Cura Te Ipsum, a long-running comic I made with Dexter Wee that ran for almost a thousand pages, and The Domain, presently on hiatus. I also worked on Lazarus for Image, and my most recent novels are Owe My Soul, the second Hal Taylor mystery, Muscle and Blood, the first Hal Taylor mystery, and Glory, a piece of Mystical Noir, which is a fancy way of saying an urban action/thriller with elements of fantasy and historical fiction.
I've been mostly indie in my work (despite a goodly number of mainstream credits), but I have managed to accumulate a rather awesome and dedicated audience: You fine folks. Together, we kickstart books and comics to print, make comics, and share the experience of writing indie books together.
So what is this Patreon for?
First off, it's a place to get everything I do cheaper and on demand (access included--you can email me/send a question at any time and get a response!) in exchange for an ongoing pledge to keep my lights on.
Second, it’s an evolving, ongoing effort to help get works that I write self-sufficient. We started it to offset the costs of art for Cura Te Ipsum, and that morphed into an effort to offset the costs of art for The Domain, and right now we are funding the production of The Saturnalia Gambit, an ambitious story of time travel and the future in the vein of Cura's best twists, featuring artwork by the phenomenal Rafael Dantas.
This Patreon also supports my novel work, including Hal Taylor, Glory, Wilder, and Blue Monday.
Right now our focus is mitigating the significant art costs for the next comic. I’m going to fund the bulk majority of this at present personally, adding in whatever the Patreon contributes.
The savings and financing for our Patreon are transparent and available to all of our supporters, reported every month in a spreadsheet in “State of the Patreon!” posts, and I am actively available to all of my readers who may have questions, suggestions, or just generally want to chat about what we’re making together.
Join us! It’s a wild ride, all are welcome, and I hope to see you here.
