“Beautifully drawn, hilarious, wistful, profane and very human, Rick Worley’s A Waste of Time knocked me out” –Robert Kirby

“Rick Worley’s insightful Waste of Time comic strips are simultaneously tender and perverse- like his bunny” –Howard Cruse

This Patreon is for my comics, and also all the other things I'm working on. The comics WILL have adult content from time to time, only visible to Patrons.

For over a decade now I’ve written comics under the banner of A Waste of Time, which is meant to be an interconnected series of sometimes autobiographical, sometimes more fantastical, books and short stories that would allow me to explore a large number of interests I have. The more autobiographical ones tell dating stories and can have more adult content, but I always wanted to deal with a large variety of styles.

I’m to an exciting point now where I have all kinds of stuff ready or almost ready to go. There are two more books on the way that just need a little more work to finish- Chapter Four of the current storyline, Monday, and another full-length book of short stories and drawings about dating and guys, called Younger Guys. Those will be among the first things I start posting on this Patreon when it launches, and there will be more things coming very soon after.

The more support this gets, the more time I’ll be able to devote to those projects, and the more will be posted, so any support is greatly appreciated. If you’ve liked my comics in the past or are just discovering them, I think you’ll be pretty excited about what I’m planning to post!
Tiers
Level 1
$1 or more per month
For any of you who want to be a Patron for $1 and up, you'll have access to archives of my existing comics, which will already have over a hundred comics and drawings at the start. I'll update this twice a week with additional comics from a variety of sources... some that have been published in my books before, some in obscure anthologies, some I just posted online... If you've followed my comics in the past, you've probably seen some of these before, but I don't think anybody has seen all of them, so there will be some interesting content.
Level 2
$2 or more per month
For $2 and above, you'll have the above plus frequent updates of new comics. I'll be posting two strips or pages from the current A Waste of Time storyline a week which, to start, will be Monday Chapter Four. The first goal for me for this Patreon is to get enough support that I can quit my dayjob and work on these comics more frequently, which I think will require pledges of $700 a month. If we get to $700, I will increase posts at this level to three a week, and then we'll see from there. 
Level 3
$5 or more per month
For $5 and above, you'll have the above plus frequent updates of even more exclusive posts and drawings. The first goal for me for this Patreon is to get enough support that I can quit my day job and work on these comics more frequently, which I think will require pledges of $700 a month. If we get to $700, I will increase posts at this level, so there will be at least one post every day for people who pledge $5 or more, and then we'll see from there!
Level 4
$10 or more per month
For $10 and above, you'll have the above plus I'll also include a 10% discount on all my future books if you purchase them directly from me while a Patron of this page, and I'll sign and personalize the books for you as well. The number of books I have to sell this way might be limited, but in the past I've always had enough to meet demand. Anything where I have to mail items might be limited to the US depending on shipping, but ask if you have questions about this.
Level 5
$20 or more per month
For $20 and above, you'll have the above plus when you start I'll send you one of my last three comics of your choice, signed and personalized, and a pen and ink drawing of a character of mine of your choice. At this level, I'll also include a 20% discount instead of 10% on all my future books if you purchase them directly from me while a Patron of this page, and I'll sign and personalize the books for you as well. The number of books I have to sell this way might be limited, but in the past I've always had enough to meet demand.  Anything where I have to mail items might be limited to the US depending on shipping, but ask if you have questions about this. 
Level 6
$50 or more per month
I honestly don't have a strong plan of what I would offer at this level, but if you want to offer this kind of support, give me suggestions of what kinds of rewards would interest you and if they're reasonable I'll be happy to consider them! If you do pledge this much, of course you'll get all of the above, plus more.
Goals
$33 of $700 per month
The main impediment to me completing the many projects I'm working on is the time I've been wasting at my menial dayjob... However, I've got to a point where if I just have about $700 a month in additional income, I can quit it and essentially work on art full time. So, the first goal I'm creating for this Patreon is to reach $700... when we get to that goal, I'm quitting the dayjob, and the comics and art I post for patrons of all levels will increase, so tell your friends to pledge, you'll all get more comics and art when we get there!
