As I’ve mentioned previously, our Patreon is up and running, so if you want to support the comic, go check it out. So far the Patreon has done way better than I expected . . . so much better, in fact, that in the first two days, we met three of the goals I had set up. Crazy, right?

The three goals we reached are:

1. Regular blog posts. Instead of sporadic blog posts, I will commit to regular scheduled blog posts, at least two a week. The blog posts will be more than just a short note that the comic has updated, and will go into more depth. There will be treats and surprises.

2. T-shirts. We will make Electric Team t-shirts available for sale, featuring original logos and designs.

3. Bonus stories – Twice a month, we will supplement the ongoing Electric Team comic with bonus pages by guest artists. These will not be part of the main story, but will be connected to it.

For #2, Sam needs to design the t-shirts, which she will get to soon, after she’s finished the cover for issue #7. But don’t worry, we will have t-shirts on sale soon! That is a thing that will happen!

For #3, I am already in talks with our first guest artist, he’s excited, and I know what the story’s going to be. He needs to finish up his current project, but it looks like we’ll be able to launch our first back-up story in April. I’m super excited about this.

For #1, here we are, an extra blog post this week! It’s happening right now!

I’m still figuring out how this is going to work, but right now the plan is that I will have new blog posts every Tuesday and Friday. I’m still trying to figure out how to make the blog posts distinct from the patron-exclusive content; my plan right now is that the exclusive content will be in-world stuff, maps and history and fiction and tidbits about the world(s) of the Electric Team, and the blog will be about the real-world stuff. Like for instance, this blog post is about our Patreon goals.

Which leads me to two questions, for you the people:

1. What sort of material would you like to see in the regular blog posts?

2. What sort of additional goals would you like to see on the Patreon?
