NEW REWARD: Patreon-exclusive pages on my webcomic site!

For many years, readers had been asking me to create a fully NSFW comic and, thanks to Patreon, I was finally able to do that with the Legendary arc of my superhero comic, The Young Protectors. The first two chapters of that arc featured heroes Kyle and Spooky Jones, together, and they are the only comics I've ever created with full-frontal nudity and explicit sex, the only 18+ comics I've ever made. 

I posted heavily censored versions of each chapter on my webcomic site, but one of the special rewards of being one of my $5+ Patrons has been exclusive access to the uncensored pages of Chapter One and Chapter Two here on Patreon. And it has been one of my most popular rewards.

But let's face it. While there are a lot of things to like about the Patreon Web site, it's an absolutely gosh-awful way to read a webcomic. There's no easy way to move from one comic page to the next, the comic pages are actually listed in backwards order, to see the comic page larger than a thumbnail you need to open the post and click the image directly, etc. etc. Definitely not the awesome experience I want for my Patrons.

So, for the last year, I've been working hard to find a way for y'all to be able to view Patreon-only comic pages on my regular webcomic site—you know, where everything is already set up for making reading a webcomic easy and enjoyable. It's literally taken me the better part of a year to work out all the technical issues, but I think I finally have it.

$5+ Patrons can now read the first two chapters of Legendary, fully uncensored, on my regular Web site!

Here's how you can do it:

The Easy Way

STEP ONE: Make sure you are already logged into Patreon. That your account is in good standing. And make sure your pledge is already at the $5 level or higher.  (You might even want to keep a Patreon page open in a separate tab, just to make sure.)

STEP TWO: Then, and only then, click on over to the first uncensored Legendary page: https://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ2-patreon/legendary-ch1-page-1/ 

STEP THREE: You'll see that the page is locked and the comic image is all blurry. You'll need to let my webcomic site know you're a $5+ Patron to unlock it. To do that, you can click on the blurry image or you can scroll to the text below the blurry comic page and click on the orange UNLOCK WITH PATREON button.

STEP FOUR: If you are already logged into Patreon and have already pledged at the $5 level or higher, you'll then see this screen asking you if it's ok for my webcomic site to confirm you're one of my $5+ Patrons. Click ALLOW.

Once you've clicked ALLOW, an account will be created for you on my webcomic site that will let you to see the fully uncensored pages. It should also create a cookie in that browser keeping you logged into my site so you won't have to keep doing this.

STEP FIVE: Go back to the previously locked page: https://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ2-patreon/legendary-ch1-page-1/  It should now be unlocked. If not, clear your browser's cache (but don't delete cookies!) and refresh the page.

STEP SIX: Read the first two chapters of Legendary just like any of my other comics, but now completely uncensored!

(Currently comments are disabled on the Patreon-exclusive pages, but I've been working on another special reward that will allow for Patron-only comments so there won't be any spoilers. Stay tuned!

ALSO, these Patreon-only chapters are actually completely new comics as far as my Webcomic software is concerned—different URLs, etc. And right now I'm only telling you about it. So, they won't be listed in the Archives or under the main Comics link on my webcomic site until I create those new links after making a public announcement to non-Patron readers. )

Another Easy Way, Maybe Easier

STEP ONE: Make sure you are already logged into Patreon. That your account is in good standing. And make sure your pledge is already at the $5 level or higher.  (You might even want to keep a Patreon page open in a separate tab, just to make sure.)

STEP TWO: Go to my webcomic site's login page -- https://webcomics.yaoi911.com/wordpress/wp-login.php -- and click on the Log In With Patreon button.

STEP THREE: You should then get this screen asking you if it's ok for my Web site to confirm you're one of my $5+ Patrons. Click ALLOW.

Once you've clicked ALLOW, an account will be created for you on my webcomic site that will let you to see the fully uncensored pages. It should also create a cookie in that browser keeping you logged into my site so you won't have to keep doing this.

(Oh, and right after you log in, you'll be immediately brought to my home page—which shows the cover of my first graphic novel, Artifice. So don't be surprised by seeing our old friends Jeff and Deacon at this point. :D )

STEP FOUR: Go to the first uncensored page of Legendary: https://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ2-patreon/legendary-ch1-page-1/  It should be unlocked. If not, clear your browser's cache (but don't delete cookies!) and refresh the page.

STEP FIVE: Read the first two chapters of Legendary just like any of my other comics, but now completely uncensored!

(Currently comments are disabled on the Patreon-exclusive pages, but I've been working on another special reward that will allow for Patron-only comments so there won't be any spoilers. Stay tuned!

ALSO, these Patreon-only chapters are actually completely new comics as far as my Webcomic software is concerned—different URLs, etc. And right now I'm only telling you about it. So, they won't be listed in the Archives or under the main Comics link on my site until I create those new links after making a public announcement to non-Patron readers. )

The Hard Way

(And not the good kind...)

It's still possible to go through the process of unlocking these pages from my Web site without already being logged into Patreon. You click on one of the Unlock links, and it will put you in the "Patreon pipeline," which eventually can also set you up with an account on my webcomic site. 

But because the Patreon pipeline assumes logged-out users don't have any Patreon account at all, the screens are confusing. If you click on Unlock and aren't already logged into Patreon, you'll be brought to a screen to create a new Patreon account. There actually is a login button, but it's hidden in the upper right of the screen. And then, once you've logged in, it still asks you to become my Patron, even if you already are.

It's not the end of the world. Once you're logged in, you can just immediately go back to the locked page, click through it again, and you'll then be taken to that ALLOW screen to create an account on my site. But frankly, I think it's more confusing than it has to be.

So my advice? Before you even go to my site, make sure you are already logged into Patreon. And then follow the steps above.

This is just the beginning

Of course, now that I can do this, that means I can offer other exciting Patreon-exclusive rewards on my webcomic site. (I've already got something special planned. Stay tuned!) 

And like I said above, I've also come up with a way for us to have Patron-only comments on locked pages. But what I've come up with actually does so much more than that. One of the best things about our community is the awesome discussions y'all have with each other. And when I'm able to offer the next reward, I think you're really going to love it.

Please let me know what you think!

This has been a long time coming. The technical hurdles have been formidable and I've wanted to offer this reward to you since last May. So, I'm excited to finally be able to make it live.

You are the only reason I am able to afford to tell these stories and I am very grateful to each and every one of you, so I hope you'll really like this. Please let me know how it works for you. I imagine there will still be a hiccup or two, but hopefully you'll enjoy being able to read the uncensored Legendary pages as they were intended to be read.

And I'll have another fun reward for you very soon! :)

Thank you for being the real superheroes of this comic! You all rock!
