Seraphim: Tales of Love and Courage

lunarblade.com

Seraphim: Tales of Love and Courage is a labour of love. I've been developing this story for the last 15 years or so and to be able to tell it, finally, is really amazing.
Seraphim was started in October of 2012 and is actually two comics that are told side by side, each once a week. This comes to 8 updates a month, 4 of each story.
The two stories both happen in the same alternate-history earth, but in different time periods.

The Tale of Love starts in 1426 and follows the story of a dichotomous boy who's both brilliant and a moron at the same time. Throughout his life he seeks to be loved, but there is much more at stake than he's aware of at first...The Tale of Courage takes place at the turn of the 19th century, 1899. It follows the tale of a boy with a chip on his shoulder and not much left to lose. When he's given as a squire to an assassin, his courage, tenacity and very life are put to the test.

I have a full-time job, but thus far I've managed to update twice a week without fail. My ultimate goal would be, like most webcomic artists, to do this full time. Regardless, I would love to be able to put more time and effort into this and create more content. I feel that Patreon is the place to do that!

Seraphim will always be free to view online on the website. The Patreon special access areas might contain extra content or special sketches or even spoilers, but the comics itself will always be online for all to enjoy.

  • Even at the $1 you get access to special insider posts! Previews of upcoming pages, projects and wallpapers! If you like Seraphim, $1 brings you into the "in" crowd

Knight Superior Backer:

  • The initiate reward: Special thanks on the front page! (Knight Superior section)
  • The Unbranded Squire level reward of all chapters in digital format
  • The Knight's access to the chapter's transcript and Knights' discussion area

  • Knights Superiors get 1 physical copy each of the already published three first comics. Knights Superiors can come pick up these at any convention Anat attends, but since those are scarce, we will gladly ship these to you. Also at the $200/month stretch goal Knight backers and above get a free copy (1 per backer) of each new book as it gets printed. This is very nice since the books become much larger as the chapters become longer.

Archon Backer:

  • The Unbranded Squire level reward of all chapters in digital format
  • The Knight Superior's free copy of the published comics (including the stretch goal perk, when reached, of having all future books, too)

  • Archon backers, that is YOU, will have a special section on the front page for Anat's eternal thanks. Honestly, she's not sure what she can give you that is worth this donation other than her thanks and the promise to do her best to make you enjoy her comics. Those, and an art piece Anat will draw just for you, per your request! (1 per backer). You're a hero to her, and taking her one step closer towards the next stretch goal. The ultimate one being, of course, Anat leaving any full-time employment in order to be a full-time comic artist. You are amazing and you should know what a difference you're making in the life of one strange, awe-struck person.
Goals
$130 of $200 per month
All comics for all chapters as they finish available for hardcopy purchase at conventions and through the Seraphim site itself. This will be awesome. We will also look into the making of some merchandise such as hats, pins, shirts... Whatever we can find to make at reasonable prices for YOU! In addition, if this amount per month is reached all Knight Superior backers will get any new books for free, on top of the books they already got (1 chapter/backer). Anat will probably be able to attend more cons, too!
