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 Patron
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:
      • Patron-exclusive art and comics.
      • Monthly desktop wallpaper.

    • It doesn’t take much to show your support! Any level of patronage gives you access to patron-only updates, which includes WIP pieces and patron art pieces, including a guaranteed wallpaper design every month (if there’s interest I may mix it up with occasional phone wallpapers as well) and the results of the character Q&A from the $15 patrons (see below). I also plan on creating some patron-exclusive comics, expanding on the world and characters of UF, which you can read for just 1$ a month as soon as they’re released.

    • $5/month:
      • Above benefits.
      • Read Undead Friend a whole chapter ahead.
      • Name on your own gravestone.

    You’re super awesome! At $5 you get the previously mentioned benefits and access to the entire next chapter of Undead Friend, a whole month early! Be ahead of everyone else! Also at $5 you get your name added to the Backers page with your very own gravestone.

    • $10/month:
      • Above benefits.
      • 20% off on Commissions.
      • Art Videos.

    You’re donating how much? Wow! In addition to everything else we’ve mentioned so far, you can buy Commissions from me at a 20% discount. You also get access to recorded videos of me inking and coloring future comic pages and side artwork (currently committing to at least one video a month).

    • $15/month:
      • Above benefits.
      • Custom Avatar.
      • Character Q&A.

    Why you so generous huh? At this level you get everything mentioned before plus you can ask me to draw an avatar of your choice to go on the Backers page (and of course you're free to use it anywhere else). The avatar is a one-time reward when you first sign up for this level (limited to headshots or simple images). I’ll also be running a monthly Q&A event: pick a character and you can ask them a question of your choice and I’ll draw them answering. Major spoilers may be vetoed or answered evasively, so feel free to throw in some backup questions. You'll get to ask a new question every month.

    • $25/month (Limited Spaces):
      • Above benefits.
      • Free monthly sketch.

    You are too kind, thank you! At this tier you get all the previous rewards as well as a monthly request for a scanned pencil sketch of a character of your choice: a UF favorite, fanart or even your own OC. Your sketch will be done within a few weeks of being requested. Sketches do not roll over month to month, so make sure you don’t miss out on it. Sketch rewards are limited to single characters, no backgrounds or elaborate props. Safe For Work pieces only.

    • $50/month (Limited Spaces):
      • $15 and lower benefits.
      • Free monthly character piece.

    Wow you are the greatest! I am stunned if you donate this much. At this tier you get the rewards mentioned in the $15 and below tiers and instead of just a pencil sketch you get a fully inked and colored character drawing each month. Your commission will be done within a month of being requested. Like sketches these don’t roll over month to month and follow all the conditions of my $40 commission pieces (terms here). If you ever want to upgrade your monthly drawing to something more elaborate, just let me know and you can pay the difference to get a fancier commission.
