Welcome to the Patreon page for 'Way of the Undead Fist'.  A web comic about a young monk who must defeat an evil Jiangshi warlord and his army of undead.  He must find the hidden masters of kung-fu before their techniques and souls are devoured by the zombie plague unleashed by the Jiangshi.  
My name is Matt Filer, I'm the writer, Artist, Letterer, Webmaster and everything inbetween of this comic.  If you think that sounds like a lot of work, it is.  I'm also a freelance illustrator, animator, web & graphic designer, Barista and full time Dad.  The point is, I'm extremely busy.  So much so that it's hard to meet the already sparse deadlines of this comic.  That's why I am setting up this Patreon account.
If you are not familiar with Patreon, please understand there is no obligation to pledge me anything to continue to read the comic.  I am more than thrilled that you would take time to read my work or even drop me a line about what you think about it.  But for those of you who have read the comic, like it and want to see more, this is your opportunity to help me do exactly that.  The more pledges and patreons that sign up, the less freelance jobs and shifts I need to take and the more time I can spend on this Comic and the more pages per week I can put up.
Now my favorite part of Patreon is that it lets me reward my Subscribers with free stuff based on their level of pledging.  I have a list of rewards on the right side of the screen.  These include, but are not limited to downloadable Art, Custom tutorials, Sneak previews and original artwork.  I'm open to adding other rewards as well, send me a message if you have any suggestions.
I also will have a list of Goals of money raised and what I will be able to do or change with the site because of it.  My biggest goal is to increase the amount of comic pages posted per week.  I am already taking steps to change my process and style to one that will be just as cool, but faster. I'll post more about that soon. =)  However style change will only get me so far and there are lots of smaller goals between now and then.  When I reach a goal, I will try to come up with a fun reward for all the current Patreons who got me there.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my Patreon page.  Regardless on whether you decide to become a Patreon supporter or not, I hope you continue to check out and read Way of the Undead Fist and enjoy it and all of the Chop Socky fun.

A huge thank you.  This is our tip reward for liking what you read and wanting to contribute to the continuation of the story.  Everything helps and gets us closer to our goals. This will give you basic access to the Patreon page and updates.  I really can't tell you how much your support means to me.  Thank You.

This reward gets you a full sized PDF of the finished book with behind the scenes creation and character sketches.  Read along as I narcissistically  drone on and on about how I made this. ;-)

In addition to the rewards of the previous tier, you will recieve an original sketch postcard drawn by yours truly.  You can message me what you'd like me to draw, but I reserve the right to keep in tasteful.  =)  If you don't tell me what you'd like I'll try and do something cool for you.

At this level I will be taking personal requests for my 'How I draw' section in the Patreon rewards area.  Characters, posing, backgrounds, designs, whatever you want me to demonstrate, it's your request.  Though I do reserve the right to ahem, 'Keep it in good taste'.  If your suggestion is selected, you'll get to keep the Original Artwork from the episode.

Wow, first you are awesome if you hit this.  At this level you will receive a 50% discount on private commissioned art as well as everything else above. Also you will be allowed to create and name a Kung-fu move of your choice to be used in the book.  Though, again, I reserve the right to keep it in good taste. ;-)
Goals
$5 of $100 per month
An early goal, hopefully a good one. Patrons who help me achieve this early and important goal will have their names transcribed into Chinese and written into the Comic in a thank you page.
