I have some new ideas to spice up my Patreon in the coming months, but I wanted to run them by all of you first, since you're the ones pledging right now!
1. Hi-res versions of NEWER Sakana chapters!
>I realized that most (all) of you are probably all caught up on the comic, and you'd probably appreciate the newest chapters as hi-res downloadable files, rather than the earliest chapters. I'll be start staggering newer>older>newer>older chapters for download until they eventually meet in the middle, and then I'll just start uploading them page by page. I'm also going to bump up the upload schedule to ONE CHAPTER PER WEEK.
2. Photoshop file downloads and hi-res art for the $5+ tiers!
>This is a pretty standard thing for Patreons to offer, and I'm sorry it's taken this long for me to offer it! I don't color things THAT often, but I do have a backlog of colored files that I can start uploading immediately (and try to work on more in the future.) The reason I'm adding more stuff to the $5 tier is because...
3. Pol-Apo prompts go public
>Patreon has done SO MUCH to help me launch this new project, and I appreciate all of your prompts and suggestions so much! I think at this point, the story would benefit from having lots of prompts from lots of different people with many ideas to break it all wide open. I also think that asking people to read an interactive comic that they can't interact with except on a monetary level hurts the comic more than helps it. IF ANY OF YOU TAKE ISSUE WITH THIS DECISION, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I am more than willing to hash out any problems you may have with the way things are going. If you specifically pledged to the Patreon for Pol-Apo and feel slighted by this decision, we can talk about refunding your pledges!
>This change will not go into effect for another week or so, so please get in contact with me if you want to talk about it beforehand!
4. New $50 tier with original comic pages!
>I'm opening up a new $50 tier with ONE ORIGINAL LICENSED COMIC PAGE mailed to you (for no extra charge) every month your pledge remains active. I've worked on many licensed comic adaptations for shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Steven Universe, Bee and Puppycat, Bravest Warriors, Clarence, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure AND SO ON. You can choose one series (and even a specific character while supplies last) and I will pick a random page from that series, including that character, to mail to you. (I'll pick a good one, I promise.)
Thanks again for supporting my work, and please get in touch if you have any concerns!
