NJ Huff is creating The webcomic Undead Friend

Undead Friend is a webcomic about death, romance and fighting goopy black monsters from the underworld. It's the story of another world much like our own, at least on the surface. Orrick is a spikey-haired high-school student who has just met a cute new girl. Mahalah is smart, friendly, and clever...unfortunately she's also dead and has been haunting Orrick's school for years. She has the chance to form a bond with a single person to let them see and hear her and she's chosen Orrick as her new friend. Unfortunately there's more to the deal than either of them know and they both get pulled into a deadly game called Undead Friend. 

Undead Friend (or just UF) started way back in 2005 and ran along with my other webcomic: Emergency Exit. Unfortunately, I've spent the last few years recovering from a debilitating injury and hadn't been able to keep either comic going. Fortunately, that stage in my life is behind me now and I'm ready to get back to my art and storytelling. Along with my husband, Orion, I'm relaunching Undead Friend all over again and finally finishing the story I've been developing for the past 13 years. 

If you're an older fan of Undead Friend or Emergency Exit, it's great to be back and I hope you'll enjoy this new incarnation. If you've never heard of me before, that's understandable! I'm happy to have you and I hope you enjoy my work!

Becoming a Patreon
Making comics has been my passion since high-school and I've always planned to make it my career as well. While life has thrown some spikes in the road things are finally rolling again and I intend to make the most of it. Becoming a patron will obviously help with things like hosting costs and art supplies and also helps give me and Orion the free time to create more comics, more often. 

Tiers
  • $1/month: Thanks for helping out. Any level of patronage gives you access to patron-only updates, which includes a guaranteed new wallpaper design every month. 
  • $5/month: Thanks to years of pent-up drawing energy Undead Friend is already written and drawn over a year in advance, with pages just waiting to go up and new pages added to the buffer every day. If you donate 5$+ a month you get access to the whole current chapter as well as the whole next chapter. Your name will also be added to our thank-you page.
  • $10/month: At this level you'll get the chance to peek at the creation process, in addition to the benefits for $5 patrons. I'll be recording at least one video a month showing the process of digitally inking and shading a future page. Text will not be included to limit spoilers. 
  • $15/month: $15 dollar patrons get all the rewards at the 5 or 10 dollar level and you can ask me to draw an avatar of your choice to go on the thank-you page (and you're free to use it off-site for personal use). The avatar is a one-time reward and should be limited to headshots or similar relatively simple images. Please keep requests Safe For Work. 
  • $50/month: If you donate $50 a month, you're amazing! You'll get all the previous rewards as well as a monthly request for a scanned pencil sketch. Sketches are limited to single-character drawings, no backgrounds or elaborate props. Like the avatar, please no "adult" requests. . 
  • 100$/month: This would be insane! Well, at this point you get all the rewards for 5, 10 or 15 dollars and your monthly sketch gets upgraded to a full drawing, with digital ink and coloring. Like before, these should be single character drawings with no backgrounds or major props, and no adult content.
