Sean Wang is creating RUNNERS - The Comic

patrons

Hi there and welcome to my Patreon!

I'm Sean Wang and I write and draw the webcomic series Runners, a fun sci-fi action-comedy about alien smugglers trying to get by in a universe on the brink of war. You can read the entire series for free at www.runnersuniverse.com 



The Project

Over the years, I did the first 2 graphic novels in addition to regular freelance work. More recently, I plotted out the entire 8 remaining volumes, including every major plot turn and character arc, and I’m now working to tell the complete story without any further interruption or delay. And that brings me to Patreon…

Creating a comic, especially one as detailed and design-heavy as Runners, takes a LOT of time. But I also need to be able to make a living. In the past, I did that through other comic and freelance work, but I’m now cutting back on that work so that I can focus on Runners. I’m hoping fans of the series will help me do that by supporting the project here on Patreon. More support here means less freelance I need to take, and that means more Runners I can produce!

For your pledge, you will be supporting the completion of a long, meticulously thought-out narrative story with a universe of characters and events to get invested in. This is currently what that story looks like:



My dream is to create a truly epic adventure story full of compelling characters, humor, action, and amazing visuals. And I hope you’ll consider the existence of that type of work something worth supporting!

The Rewards

For your patronage, I’ll be offering lots of bonus content unavailable anywhere else. While the actual comic will continue to post online for free at runnersuniverse.com, Patreon supporters will have access to a treasure trove of behind-the-scenes content and bonus material, including:
  • Higher-res pages than what is available on the website
  • All pages in penciled and inked stages
  • Select colored pages in fully-layered PSD format
  • Extensive sketchbook pages featuring concept designs for aliens, costumes, props, ships, space stations, and props, along with sketchbook commentary detailing the thought process behind the designs
  • Stories in script form
While the bonus content will be especially helpful for other creators, I think it’ll appeal to anyone interested in the creative process of making comics in general and a sci-fi universe in particular.

NOTE

I’m initially doing a soft launch strictly as donations at the $1, $5, and $10 levels as I do pre-production work for Volume 3. Later in 2019, once the new pages start posting, I will update this Patreon page with all the actual ongoing tiers and rewards. But in the meantime, you’re welcome to support the series at the three donation levels!


Why Patreon?

Kickstarter is great for funding the print run of an actual book, as it's basically a store/pre-order system, which is fantastic. But Patreon may be the best way to fund the creation of the SERIES ITSELF. If I can count on regular funding support through Patreon, I can put more time and effort into making the project long-term. So hopefully, if people really enjoy Runners, they’ll see Patreon as the best way to make sure they keep getting it without significant delays or interruptions.

How Does Patreon Work?

Once you create an account, you can become a patron at any reward tier. Each month, you will be charged that amount, but you can change tiers or cancel altogether at any time. For your support, you will get access to Runners-related content that I will be posting exclusively on Patreon.

THANKS!!

Thanks so much for checking out my Patreon project. I have put a LOT of work into developing Runners over the years, and I am truly excited to finally have a way to get the series done through funding support on this site. I hope you’ll join me in the adventure!
