Hello! We’re Kaiju, a creative team made up of Jen X. and Kate R. We create Novae, an LGBT+ historical romance comic steeped in mystery, necromancy and the wonders of the universe.

Novae chronicles the adventures of Sulvain, a sweet tempered necromancer and Raziol, a passionate 17th century astronomer. While studying the stars together, a connection forms between them and their relationship blooms. However, when the body of a fellow astronomer is found on the steps of the Academy of Sciences, their lives are entangled in ways they could never foresee.



Our goal is to work on Novae full-time and we’ve got a lot of goodies to share for those who would like to help Novae come into fruition. We’re currently updating twice a week. With our Patreon we’d love to eventually increase our update schedule to 4 times a week. Not only that, but just for our patrons, we'll be creating a lot of extra content! This includes:

  • An extra comic about the characters that updates 2x a month.
  • Gag comics and bonus scenes.
  • Sketches and drawings of intimate scenes.
  • Process videos
  • A PDF of the entire chapter before it’s released page by page on the website.
  • Quarterly wallpapers.
  • Early pages.
  • A monthly postcard sent directly to your door.
  • Secret materials to other projects we’re working on.
  • Unlocking more bonus award tiers! Including physical gifts, in depth tutorials, spicy comics, and AU comics.

See here for an in-depth explanation of each tier!


We’ve been preparing for months and we are super excited to show everything we’ve been working on with our patrons! Novae is a dense story with a lot to explore and with our Patreon we invite our readers to draw back the curtain and see the magic and bones behind the comic. For those interested in seeing the depths, processes and hidden secrets behind the story, we have a lot in store for you! <3

Novae will continue to update for free on the website, but with your support, we can dedicate our time to Novae and push the story out faster. A lot of love and care goes into each page of Novae, but we are only a two person team and we need fuel to keep ourselves healthy, happy, and productive. We are extremely thankful and grateful to our readers and patrons. Thank you for taking an interest and contributing directly to us and the future of Novae!

We are here to give you personal editorial advice! We’ve worked with a couple of excellent editors over the years and we’ve picked up some great wisdom. We have applied that knowledge to our own work and developed a sense of comic structure and narrative. When you subscribe, you’ll have two fresh pairs of eyes to go over your creative project!


We can go over thumbnails, scripts or comic pages. Here’s what we can take on at the moment!


  • 1 Chapter of thumbs + that chapter’s script
  • 1 volume of comic script. (We’ll read over the whole script and start with basic advice on how to improve the flow and effectiveness of the story. If you would like to stay on after that month, we can go in-depth into each chapter. (1-2 Chapters per month.)
  • Prose/Novel first look. (We’ll read 1-2 Chapters of your prose/novel and give you our thoughts on the structure, tone and narrative.)
  • Comic pages (If you’re seeking advice or looking to take your art in a new direction we’ll provide you with critiques and resources to help you achieve the vision you have in mind.)


We’ll communicate through e-mail, that way you’ll always have something to look back on and we can gather our thoughts better. If you’re continually working on the project during the month of your pledge, we can correspond to your edits up to 3 times a month.


When you sign up for this tier, your spot is reserved and we can start as soon as the pledge goes through at the beginning of each month.

Goals
$1,863 of $2,500 per month
Novae Updates 3x A Week

With this goal, we can take on less freelance jobs and work more on the comic. The story for Novae has the potential to be quite extensive and we’ll be happy to pump out the pages faster!
