Hello Internet! Welcome to my passion project! 

 
Me and my gang of beloved brain-children!
(if I blink twice, it means they've taken me hostage. Send Help.)

Without Moonlight is a historical war drama set in WWII Athens.
which you can and always will be able to read free here:
http://www.withoutmoonlightcomic.com

I love history, and I'm fascinated by Greek modern history- something that isn't too well known internationally, which I think is a shame as it's really 70+ years of Game of Thrones style intrigue, assassinations, machinations and corruption alongside humanity, bravery, valor, altruism and the undying hope and perseverence that has helped us Greeks survive through the ages. 

It's all these aspects and many more that I seek to illustrate with Without Moonlight and also to shed light on how WWII felt like, with all its terrible stakes and terrible consequences, in this small, tiny yet beautiful land in the Mediterranean. 

The Deal

Without Moonlight will always be free to read online. But your donations will help me make more time to draw and be able to meet the costs associated with making them easier (such as hosting costs, research costs and unforeseen costs when my worn down hardware breaks down). 

What you get by supporting Without Moonlight is first and foremost more regular updates! I don't work with a buffer due to time constraints (as this is not yet my day job) but I will be bringing you guaranteed bimonthly updates! 

Tiered patron pledges also include: 
* short stories with or without illustrations,
* sketches,
* trivia, folklore, customs and all sorts of other facts about Greece, Greeks and Greek culture
* historical tidbits, authentic photographs and documents from WWII Greece from my (insanely large and ever growing) archive,
* extra WM art and
* even a cameo in the comic itself! (with the warning that your cameo might get killed off in a shootout or something)

Civilian
$1 or more per month 0 patrons

You're keeping it together by the skin of your teeth. You hate the hell you live in, but you're determined to outlive it while doing anything and everything in your power to make it hell for those occupying you too. 


For that, you get:


* Early updates!

* Gifts in the form of PDFs and anniversary illustrations

Red Cross
$2 or more per month 3 patrons

Your task is hard- you have to do a lot with next to nothing. The occupiers can confiscate your provisions, and you're left to jury-rig a lifeline for all the injured, the ill and the infirm in this maligned land. 


For this you get:


* Early updates!

* Gifts in the form of PDFs and anniversary illustrations . 

*  WIPs and behind-the-scene things

* The wallpaper of the month



Resistance
$5 or more per month 1 patron

For you, the war doesn't end until your country's free. In the cities, in the mountains, you keep fighting against the enemies occupying your land until your last dying breath. You're the heroes of your era, with all the glory and hardship that comes with that. 


For that, you get: 


* Everything on the previous tiers

* Songs (with translated lyrics) & authentic era recordings (with annotations)

* History stuff alluded to in WM (with photos and other things)

* Political background and other analyses of the era


Resistance Captain
$10 or more per month 1 patron

Your trusted men and women fighters depend on you to strategize and lead them to swift and important victories. Their survival and their death lie in your hands. Each decision you make affects them and affects your country's fate. You're it- you can't afford to drop the ball. 


For that, you get: 


* Everything on the previous tiers

* Short stories with illustrations with the WM characters that couldn't make it into the webcomic proper (still canon!)

* Translated short stories, vignettes and other literature relevant and important to WWII Greece and WM 

* Having your character (or you) be an extra in WM crowd scenes if you want it!


SOE Agent
$20 or more per month 0 of 1 patrons

You're the person with the toughest job and the coolest job. You get all the risks, but you also get all the gadgets, and everyone looks to you for help, coordination and intel. 


For this, you get: 


* Everything in the other tiers

* A character cameo of your choice in the webcomic (provided it's feasible for the setting, e.g. it can't be fantasy characters unless they're human) for the duration of at least half a chapter!

Goals
$19 of $50 per month

When we have grown to this level, I'll do an 'ask me anything' vid AND I will upgrade the update schedule to weekly updates!
