What is Red Moon Rising?

Red Moon Rising is a full colour, steampunk fantasy webcomic that has been online since early 2009, and continues to update weekly. The archive contains over 400 pages, and I hope to continue updating it for a long time to come.

The story follows the fates of several characters as they attempt to navigate a tensely charged cold war landscape full of magic, technology, scandal, and intrigue.

And why should I give you money?

To be blunt, it's a lot of hard work making a comic. I've put thousands of unpaid hours into this project that I love, but I'm also really keen on being able to continue eating food and paying rent.

I'd love to dedicate all of my time to producing content for the comic, but my primary job is as a freelance artist, and more and more of my time is being spent on that these days. Any money that I can make through Patreon is going to free up time that will then be spent on the comic, and ultimately allow me to get closer to that most difficult and elusive of goals - a printed book.

Also, to be completely clear, the comic will remain entirely free to read online! No matter what happens with this campaign, that will always be the case.

Thank you! You may now reserve the right to high five me should our paths ever cross.

Additionally, you gain access to the patreon activity stream, which I will be filling up with every single sketch and bit of concept art that I can wring out of my brain.

Vote on what becomes a wallpaper!

There's about a million panels of Red Moon Rising which would probably make neat wallpapers, and now you have a say in which ones you would specifically like plastered all over your computer and/or mobile device.

You vote, and I will lovingly repaint any of the comic art into wallpapers which then become available for all patrons. You essentially get to decide the fate of all those people down in the $2 tier.

Also, livestreams!

Watch me draw the comic every so often. I will make watching digital paint dry a fun time for all.

This is in addition to the previously mentioned:

  • High fives!
  • Wallpapers!
  • Access to behind the scenes artwork!

Previously, to have a cameo in Red Moon Rising you would need to walk up to me on the street and flatter me tremendously. Now you merely have to pay me!

This is in addition to the previously mentioned:
