Its a single panel one this month, and I hope you enjoy it. As some of you know it’s been a trying time lately for me – illness and my dogs’ illnesses – which to an extent accounts for the small update and directly relates to it’s belated launch. I apologize for the delay.
Well, just in time for the Holiday season the Patreon has leapt past the second milestone. What an amazing gift. I know I’ve said this with every goal but it’s especially exciting now.
Because the next milestone, if achieved, means that I’ll be able to pull back on sketch cards and focus more on my own, creator-owned comic work. Probably you’ve heard me mention HIGHJUMP. A friend has read the synopsis and Thomas has seen the thumbnails for a creepy The Thing-ish prologue I’ve written. I’ve also written a complete outline of the first story arc. Which is graphic novel in length.
Someone called it Frozen Hitler once, but my description is 1940s pulp heroine fighting Nazis, and robots, and mad scientists, and cthonian horrors, and femme fatales. Note this was BEFORE Peggy Carter, dammit. It’s most everything I love to draw, and a lot of what it seems people like SEEING me draw.
And now that it’s hopefully going to happen in some capacity — we’re a mere $75/month away from it — I think I should try to find the time to draw and color up up a spiffy promo piece.
It’s all exciting, and hopeful, and I want to thank everyone here who’s donated everything from the important $1/month to the humbling $40/month. You’re doing your part to help support the arts and artists, and believe me, each of us trying to find and do our own thing appreciates it from the bottom of our hearts.

My Patreon to bring the comic back has reached its first milestone goal. This is very exciting!
What does it mean?
Well, it means that as long as we stay above that first milestone you all are GUARANTEED a new comic once every other month. Maybe more, but that’ll depend on my other scheduled projects so there aren’t any promises. The plan is to start drawing in October and have the comic up the first week of November. I’ll be posting various progress shots over for the Patreon backers.
The next milestone gets the comic back on a monthly schedule. So head on over to Patreon and check out the many great rewards you can get in ADDITION to the web comic. With your support we can make something kick-ass and awesome.
So over at the Patreon page ( http://www.patreon.com/RichardCox ) we’ve reached the halfway point in getting the comic up and running regularly, albeit only on a bi-monthly schedule. This is great news! I appreciate all of the kind words and help. Even if you cannot donate monthly — I totally understand! — you can still help a LOT by sharing the Patreon link above through your social media if you think this is a worthwhile project. With your help we can see this through and maybe even get that second comic up and running.
I wish you all the best!
It’s up to you!
I’ve started up a Patreon Account, with the goal to being to have a financially sustainable method for creating fun comics, and offer some great, fair rewards to people along the way. So if you’re someone who’s enjoyed my A PRINCESS OF MARS comic (which will return if this is successful) and would like to see something new and creator-owned (HIGHJUMP) this is for you. But the Patreon page will go into detail about all of that.
YOu’ll see checking out the Patreon that it’s very A PRINCESS OF MARS heavy. This will enable me, if successful, to back off my current non-comics workload in favor of A PRINCESS OF MARS and, if lucky, start up my own, creator owned comic at the same time.
You’ll get in-process snippets of art,see comics and pages in-progress, and more. There will be early announcements of projects which I’ll be involved with, and sneak previews of pieces that I can’s share publicly, aand many reward options for people kind enough to help in this adventure.
