About Carolin Reich

Hello beautiful You!


My name is Carolin Reich and I‘m a freelance comic artist and illustrator from Germany.
Over the last ten years I worked for different companies and clients through the fields of Games and Advertising and published several comic stories.






Since 2016 I self-publish a comic series called “The Origin Story” (TOS)/ “Vom Anfang” (VA) with an archive of already five (german) books and a free-to-read, gradually growing online version on Webtoons, Tapas, Animexx and it's own website updating once to twice a week.
Currently, I‘m working on the sixths volume. The completed series will have seven books and with an overall estimation of 500-600 pages we are close to the finish line (nearly)!

To achieve this I tended to work 60-80 hours shifts weekly and work through the weekends to publish my comic and generate a decent income at the same time.

Which is something you can do, but not for long and when the pandemic hit I couldn’t handle it anymore.

In 2021 I reduced my workload drastically and temporarily concentrated mostly on client work, which slowed down the comicmaking rpocess significantly. Thing now is that I mentally feel so much better, but I miss making comics so MUCH.

I don’t want this to be a side gig.
I don’t want you to wait forever for the next book.
I want to do side illustration projects for the comic and spinoffs, for you!

And most importantly I don’t want to be too exhausted from the work I have to do to survive, to do the work which I believe is my future.

And I sincerely hope that you can help me achieve this.

Let me show you how this could be done:


  • 60 generous people at the 10€ tier or 200 at 3€ would help me cover my most basic living expenses while skipping additional contract work completely. These 600€ would enable me to work full-time at the comic (not only scripting and drawing, but maintaining all the different social media and comic platforms, editing pages and illustrations, preparing comic-merch etc.)
  • With an even greater support of 1000€ I can even hire additional help like a colorist and editor, which should enable me to faster finish the current project, to start the next or even tackle an additiopnal side-project.

I know these are huge numbers, probably not achievable in an instant and overwhelming at first, but does this mean your support now is for nothing? Absolutely not!

  • 350€ per month means I'll hire a permanent flat color assistant, which will be a huge timesaver and stress relief to me. I'll create an exclusive Illustration Print and will send it out to all Patreons.
  • 200€ per month from kind and (obviously) beautiful Patrons can already pay my health-insurance, which is one contract job less and more time for content exclusively for you.
    Also I'd be finally able to pay something to my translator Martin Denk, who takes care of the english web-version since the beginning and does an amazing job!

Okay you got it because you are not only beautiful, but clever too!

But let's be honest - Throwing money at me sounds tempting but what do you get in return?

I prepared a variety of pledge tiers for you to choose from with different rewards, e.g. like:

  • Exclusive Behind the Scenes content on uncoming books and projects
  • Yet Unpublished Sketches/WIPs
  • Polls on upcoming artwork/storydetails
  • Making Of Steps
  • Psds of working Files.
  • Monthly Postcardclub
  • Bonuscomics
  • Patreon exclusive physical rewards
  • Original Artwork
  • Early Access to unplublished Comicpages
  • Credits (Web and Print)
  • Monthly Request- Livestream (Every second wednesday of the month)
  • Exclusive Discordchanel, where you ramble about the comic, but also can post your own art and I try to give feedback if wanted :)
  • Access to the Patreon-.Archive.

Higher tiers always include all the rewards from lower tiers.

Anything left to say? Naah… There are already enough words. Congratz for reaching this spot. You seem to be a way more patient person than me. Only one thing:

Come and join me on my journey. Let‘s create a fantastic adventure together!

I‘m looking forward to meeting you. :)

$173.03 of $193.83 per month
Wow, Thank you! That's a lot of money.
Reaching this goal means I am finally able to pay something to my translator Martin Denk, who is with me in this project since Volume One and does an amazing job!

As Thank you I'll create an exclusive Comic themed Holo-Sticker with you while Livestreaming and will send it out to all Patreons!
