Q: What is SHELDON ?
4,000 strips of completely-free-to-read comics: Nominated twice for the Eisner Awards for "Best Humor".

Q: What is Patreon?
Patreon is a bit like Kickstarter:  But where Kickstarter supports a one-time project (like a book or a film)...Patreon supports ongoing projects (like a comic strip).

Q: Why use Patreon with Sheldon? 
I would love to get advertising off the site. I hate advertising, and hate that part of my income is dependent on it. Your Patreon support will let me get ads off the site, and will help me share strips where folks want to read them: Embedded on Twitter, Facebook, via E-mail, and more -- all without ads.
And Patreon is the way to do that.

Q: How does Patreon work? What am I pledging?
For every month of comics, you're pledging to donate a small amount. It's that simple.

And really: Go small on the amount. The goal is to have a whole bunch of readers, together, giving tiny amounts...because that all adds up. 

But! If you're the kind of reader that wants to give a little bit more, there's also cool stuff you can unlock: Access to Artist Edition books or convention exclusives, or the chance to be DRAWN IN THE STRIP!  (And know that you can edit, cap the amount, or cancel your pledge any time before you're charged! Learn more at Patreon's FAQ.)

Q: If I don't support SHELDON on Patreon, will the strip...disappear? Will it stop being free to read?
A: Oh no no no. SHELDON will never cost money to read. Patreon just allows fans of Sheldon to support the strip they love!

Q: What about extra rewards?
A: We unlocked our first patronage goal, so now: EVERY BACKER GETS TWO FREE e-BOOKS! No matter what support level you pledge at, you'll get a copy of Dave's Eisner-Nominated book "Coffee: It's What's For Dinner" -- aaaaand, for the first-and-only-time as an e-mail, his best-selling book "Pugs: God's Little Weirdos" (now in its fourth printing!)  You can't get these e-mails anywhere else...but they're free to you when you pledge.
