We are Holly Laing and Drew Dailey, creators of the webcomic TERRA and we’d like to take some time to outline our Patreon page.
Patreon is an awesome service that allows you to help support the creators you follow by donating a set amount every month. Subscribers get access to unique feed items (art, scripts, etc...) while the content you support (the webcomic in this case) remains free for everyone. These contributions will allow Holly to rely less on commissions and put more time into the comic, which means more content for you!
What You’d Be Supporting:
In 2309 an interplanetary war has torn the galaxy apart. TERRA follows the crew of the Evening Star as they fight alongside the Resistance, rebuilding a better galaxy where all sentient alien life will be equally represented and valued.
TERRA has been running since March 2009 and updates Wednesdays.
How Your Contributions would Help:
This patreon page will allow us to concentrate more of our attention towards the comic, which means more content. There will not be any pay wall, the comic will always be free, this is more of an opportunity for you to help support us in order to make the TERRA the best we can make it.
Your contributions will help towards many things, a big one being medical expenses. Holly was diagnosed with MS in 2013 after a relapse that caused vision loss and loss of feeling in the left leg. She has since mostly recovered (but is still left with residual symptoms and a slight loss of vision in her left eye).
Living with a chronic illness like MS can be expensive due to interferon medication, physical therapy and equipment (such as mobility assistance devices, cooling vests, etc). Any amount that can help alleviate the stress of these expenses is greatly appreciated. Contributions will also of course go towards the comic, for things such as software/hardware expenses, printing costs, convention merchandise and more.

We’ve greatly enjoyed providing the comic for all of you over the past several years. We look forward to continuing to provide you with as much quality content as possible in the future. Thanks for your time and we hope you’ll consider becoming a patron of TERRA.
