About Soushiyo


About Familiar

Hello! Jude aka SOUSHIYO here. Thank you so much for investigating my Patreon and considering supporting me in this way. If you are already a Patron, double thanks for being such a bad-ass.

Familiar is a modern-day, slice-of-life comic about magick, work/life balance, BDSM, and relationships. It is primarily an eroticomedy romance with kink elements. It is queer and sex-positive and magickal and kinky. Familiar is broken into two kinds of chapters; plot chapters (averaging 25 pages) which are mainly plot with some sexy times, and filler chapters (averaging 18 pages) which are fun sexcapades.

Familiar is free to read.
The final chapters are uncensored and available to the public as I publish them; this Patreon is not a paywall. However, in thanks for their financial support, Patrons will have advanced reading rewards and the opportunity to affect certain elements of the comic.

Thanks to Patreon's weird NSFW/adult content rules, I cannot link directly to my Twitter OR the comic site from my public Patreon page.
So, Google me (soushiyo) and find me on Twitter, and I will share all the information and naughty links there. (or become a Patron and get the links that way!)

Tiers & Rewards



I will also be posting WIPs, sketches, and other behind the scenes content as it happens to both Advanced Access and Influencer tiers.

FAQ

What's the deal with the Influencer Polls?
Influencer polls are posted here on Patreon once a month on the 15th of the month, and remain open to Influencer-tier Patrons until the end of the month. These polls give Patrons the chance to interact with the story of Familiar. They usually focus on a 3-4 page sequence of a chapter, with 3-4 options to choose from. Example include locations of scenes, the nature of a particular sexy activity, etc. I will post one poll per month. That way, even if a chapter takes me a little longer to get through, you'll have something to chew on.

How frequently will chapters come out?
Because this is a passion project (meaning I have another day job that has to take priority), I can't promise that Familiar chapters will be released on a scheduled basis. The first 6 chapters took about a year to complete, but my speed definitely improved over time with experience. I'd love to be able to do Familiar full time (hence Patreon...), but at the moment we're looking at about 2 months average per 25 page chapter.

That said, I do love this comic and will post in progress work here and on Twitter so you know where I'm at.

What are you going to do with my dollars?
I'm going to pay my bills. I'm an adult human with a mortgage. I will also probably use the dollars to maintain my drawing equipment. Depending on how successful this Patreon is, I am also open to producing fun Familiar-related content, like, I don't know, printed books or voice acted readings by professional voice talent. Who knows? Not me, but I am open to suggestions!
Goals
$194 of $1,500 per month
If I can reach this goal, I can re-organize my time and work to produce Familiar as my top priority (e.g. work on it basically full time). This will mean I can guarantee a chapter every 2 months -- maybe more.
