Hello, everyone!! Folks have been asking me to create a Patreon for years, especially online readers who have wanted a way to support the comic outside of newspapers. I finally put one together this week, and I would be humbly grateful if you would consider becoming a member of the BCN Patreon!
BCN will always be free to read everyday on GoComics, and in as many newspapers as we can get it into! This Patreon would showcase a lot of extras; sketches, peeks into future panels, paintings in progress, a monthly write up on specific characters, ways to vote for favorite characters or what the next calendar page should be… fun things like that!
I make most of my income through newspapers, along with book sales, and royalties from BCN merchandise. In recent years the newspaper industry can be a bit… well,… complicated. My monthly income can go up or down depending on newspapers picking up the comic, dropping the comic, or closing altogether. I love having ‘Breaking Cat News’ in newspapers! And… I have kids and bills to pay. I would like to create in a little buffer of stability into my income. I want to ensure I can keep writing BCN for many years to come, whatever life throws at me. And so, I created this Patreon in the hopes of giving BCN readers a way to directly support the comic wherever it is running in print. And to have a place for all of my BCN extras to land, where folks want a flood of sketches in one of their feeds. I created tiers as low as $1 a month and as high as $25, take a peek! You can find the Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/breakingcatnews
I hope you like what you see and are excited for a place to support the comic and get some extra BCN perks and insights! Thank you for any support you’d like to give BCN, whether it’s through the Patreon or buying our books or BCN merc, I could not do any of this without you!
