Jeepers! You are super-awesome, and nobody can ever take that away from you.
E-books
$3 or more per month 19 patrons
Sweetness! I'll email you a link to download one of the A* e-books each month, starting with the most recent; although very long-term supporters may outlast the number of e-books I have (one per episode, currently in the 20s :), they will be entitled to a free copy of every new A* episode e-book that I put out.
Pencil Sketches
$10 or more per month 6 patrons
Yes! All the A* e-books emailed to you as a downloadable link, and each month I'll do an original A* pencil sketch, and snail-mail it to you! Here's an example of one that I sent to a supporter:


Pen Sketches
$20 or more per month 1 patron
Holy moly! All the A* e-books emailed to you as a downloadable link, and each month I'll do an original A* pen sketch, and snail-mail it to you! Here's an example of one that I sent to a supporter:


Ink Sketches
$30 or more per month 2 patrons
Criminey! All the A* e-books emailed to you as a downloadable link, and each month I'll do an original A* brush and ink sketch, and snail-mail it to you! Here's an example of one that I sent to a supporter:


A* Original Ink or Watercolor Page Art
$40 or more per month 0 patrons
**$40 tier price available to US Patrons only** -- Due to international shipping fees, the price for Patrons outside the US is $55.


A* art collector tier!


Heyo! All the A* e-books emailed to you as a downloadable link, and each month I will snail-mail you a genuine, actual page of the original ink or watercolor art used to make a page of the comic (about 16" x 6.75", usually, although some are a bit bigger)! Any page that is currently up for sale on smbhax.com (ie, not the ones on eBay) is fair game; you can request a particular page by emailing the episode and page number to [email protected] the end of the month; if I do not receive a request from you by then, I will pick a page myself. : )


(Alternatively, you can pick *two* of the pencil-only pages from episode 19 and the beginning of episode 20. Those pages will only be sent by request.)


You are saving $10 off the price of the pages on smbhax.com, AND getting free shipping in the US, which would usually be close to $8 (or, in effect, getting $8 off shipping for those outside the US, who would normally pay about $23 for shipping)--AND getting all the A* e-books.

Watercolor Sketches
$50 or more per month 2 patrons
Golly gee whiz! All the A* e-books emailed to you as a downloadable link, and each month I'll do an original A* watercolor sketch, and snail-mail it to you! Here's an example of one that I sent to a supporter:


Watercolor Paintings
$100 or more per month 1 patron
What?!? Wow. Okay, so you get all the A* e-books emailed to you as a downloadable link, and each month I'll paint an original, full-on, 17.75" x 11.75" (which is big, even bigger than I paint the regular A* pages!) A* watercolor painting, and snail-mail it right to your door. Here's one I sent to a supporter:
