About


Let's start with an introduction. I'm Ken and I've been making comics consistently since December 2008. You can read a ton of my old work(now curated) on Clockwork Pandas. My new work is all available for as little as $1 a month! If you want to read work featured here without supporting me month to month, everything unique to Patreon is in print and available in my store. With each reward tier we have access to comics, access to PDF compilations of storylines, access to hi-res PSDs, an early peak at comics(drastically unfinished, but still readable) and at the highest tier, I send you a copy of any books I produce. The output of that tier has slowed I admit, as I put out a lot of books in a short space of time towards the start of that idea, but if you've been a patron for a couple of months in that tier and want some of the old books, just get in touch.

This Patreon started in January 2017 as an attempt to pursue a series of stories I've been working on since 2010 and I have maintained a consistency in that. I've also changed strategy a few times. I now rarely post comics for free but everything can be read here if you're a Patron and I have been reverting back to doing diary comics and I want to try my hand at comic essays pretty soon. There is no shortage of work to be doing and I'm more than willing if I have the support here to help pay printing costs. I also make youtube videos now, which we'll get to later.

So let's talk about Worldender. It is a collection of stories, mainly written in comic form, about the immortal Gilbert Marlowe. As such, I use the format to explore different periods and genres. So far we have seen a Lovecraftian horror, contemporary horror, sports, slice of life and medieval fantasy adventure. I have many more planned beyond that. I don't deliberately explore complex themes in Worldender like I would my autobio work, as the purpose is to produce pulp stories for entertainment. I'm not saying it doesn't happen just... try not to expect too much of the content going in. Finally, there is a "lore" of sorts being loosely explored but all stories can be read in isolation, armed only with the knowledge of Gilbert's secret.

If you're here for the videos, hello. I make game reviews centered around a Twitter Thread I've been building since 2019. At a certain point I realised Twitters character limit was holding me back so I started to make short video reviews about... At least a good chunk of the games on that list. I have much less to give tier-wise beyond an occasional cut segment and Patron exclusive commentary under the videos when they go out. This is something I'm pretty new at and juggling with my comic schedule but I'm trying to keep the videos coming out at a regular pace. Currently every second Wednesday, but despite upholding that so far, I might throw a video up at any time. WHOO KNOOOWWSSS (Yes, I know I should do a welcome video now but hold on I'm working on a torturously long Blaseball video right now)

The future is uncertain and I just wanna make stuff people enjoy.
