Mouse here with a special message for my friends and followers who like to read my queer alternative fantasy comic Go Ye Dogs! I’m cutting out the ol’ day job to make more comics more often, and you can help by giving any amount of support monthly on Patreon.
There are rewards for different levels of patronage, including exclusive illustrations, sneak-peaks of new pages and videos about my process and inspiration and a little peak into my daily life. Thanks so much to Tyler at Patreon and my partner Kris for helping me get this set up, and humble and sincere thanks to anyone who decides to support my comics and help spread the word by sharing this post on yonder tumblrs.

This story contains death and is likely suitable for anyone over 13 years old.
Starting in June 2014 I’ll be updating the comic monthly with between 8-10 pages. It will be 79 pages long and will conclude the following December. As the comic reaches its conclusion, I’ll begin updating and informing everyone about my next project, which will begin in January 2015.
