About Samantha Whitten

Notice: The comic is currently on an indefinite break, but I am still creating monthly wallpapers for the $5 tier. Please keep this in mind if you decide to pledge. Thank you!

About the comic

Hello, everybody! My name is Samantha Whitten and I am the artist of  The GaMERCaT, a web comic about a cat that plays video games.

I've been doing the comic for a few years now and the overwhelming amount of support it has received has shown me how much people love these wacky little gaming cats. When I first began The GaMERCaT I wasn't able to devote much time to it because I had to earn a living with other endeavors. I was able to take on a steady weekly update schedule when I joined Tapas and received their support, but after seeing how much fan support the comic also has I decided to begin a Patreon for it.

About Patreon

Patreon is basically like an on-going Kickstarter campaign, but instead of funding one big project, it funds the continuous creation of episodic content, like web comics. You can pledge as much or as little as you want per month. If you want more technical information about being a patron, you should check out Patreon's Patron FAQ.

Isn't the comic free?

Yes, the comic is free, and will always be free. Subscribing is merely a way to help out the artist and show your support, and maybe get some little extra bonuses as well. It may not seem like a lot, but If every fan of the comic contributed just $1 every month it could go a very long way. Please never feel that a small contribution doesn't make a difference! It absolutely does!

What do I get for subscribing?

Most of my time goes into making the comics, so this Patreon is mostly here to help ensure that it continues. I also provide monthly wallpapers to $5+ patrons, and sometimes share sneak peeks of upcoming projects or merchandise to all patrons.

I'm currently uploading an archive of all past wallpapers on a monthly schedule (ex. May's wallpapers in May, June's wallpapers in June, etc), so by the end of the year all wallpapers will be available in a post archive to any $5+ patrons.

Is there any other way to support you?

If Patreon isn't your thing, please consider purchasing something from the store! You'll get tangible items in return for your hard-earned money, and it still supports the creator! You can also check out the Support Page for more ideas on ways to help the comic that are free.
