This Patreon is devoted to funding my long term horror comic, Salient Caligation that follows the lives of mage Caitlin Sword, her bound demon, Ananga and the psychometrist, Moira. Originally created in 2004 as a joint project between myself and artist, John Joseco to feature a half-Asian demon hunter, I have built upon the world mythos despite J.J leaving the project.

The main story of Salient Caligation is loosely planned to cover 6 Issues and spin-off to focus on other character stories in the novel series, Rise; the comic, Eidolon; and my long term novel/comic, Fallen. A lot has happened in the 14 years of working on Salient to include artwork from J.J., Ariella Faul, Zairyo, Michael Prokop (Starship Moonhawk) and even myself. 

I want to give you, the reader comic with a consistent style and quality of artwork by hiring a professional artist to illustrate the pages of Salient Caligation. In order to do this, I need your help. It took me 13 years to have Chapter 1 completed due to funding and time commitments and an inability of my friends to commit to the project due to their own circumstances. 

It's been a labor of love and I want to keep going without worrying about balancing my family budget to accommodate this fun, awesome project. A lot has happened in my life since this project has started: I have moved 5 times; bought and sold my house; had a child; switched careers twice; completed my Bachelors Degree and am currently in Graduate school while working ym day job full time.

With your help, I can get the 25 pages of Chapter 2 completed by artist, Nicoy Guevarra in a year or less! I am not wealthy by any means. I can try to buy pages when my family budget allows for the expense but my dream is for the comic to be self-sustaining. 

Here are what my costs look like to keep Salient Caligation going:

Full color cover: $150
25 pages black and white: $2000
Webhosting: $300
Domain: $10
Any bonus content like pin-ups: $60-150 each
Misc Costs: $570

To maintain 2 updates a month it costs about $250 a month. 
To maintain 1 update a month it costs about $170 a month.


Any help to maintain this comic is greatly appreciated! All money donated goes only into the continuation of the project. When I meet the financial goals of the comic, I can see about providing more rewards for donors!
