Questioning Authority

Hey Droogies!


It's been 6 months since I launched my Patreon page, and I wanted to give an update. Things have been good there, and after a few months of posting some exclusive stories and archived stories, I finally got into the weeds with the next chapter of "Feral and the Ghost Skater", which is called "Damaged" and peeks in on what's been going on with Feral's alter-ego, Grant. Grant is the sad-sack of the bunch. the rest of the characters are having fun, but he just can't find the joy in his situation. Poor fella.

Anyways, as so often does, life got in the way of this story. The current political season got me all worked up and I felt like I had something to say, so rather than continue to engage in social media flame-wars, I decided to make a comic about how I came to be the political creature I am today, and how that informs my views on this current season. I hope you will take the time to read it, and share it with whomever you feel might enjoy it. I'm not a political scientist, nor an english major, so please don't judge it as if it's a professional essay. It's a comic book.

You can find it here on my safe for all ages comics website Marginalized Publications, or also on my Patreon page... the pertinent pages are accessible to the public there. And if you enjoy it, and/or my other work on Patreon, please consider pledging a dollar or more a month. I've gained patrons over the past 6 months since the initial launch, but I have also lost a few and had a number reduce their pledges due to economic hardships, which believe me I get it. Times are tough, and I appreciate every single cent I get from my patrons. So share this, spread the word. I am always on the look out to increase my audience.

Thank you, friends.
And please, I welcome feedback. Tell me what you like on my site/Patreon, what you'd like to see more of. 

Oh, and if you'd like a hard copy of this comic, send me your mailing address... if you are in the states I will be happy to send you one on my dime. Overseas is too expensive, sorry :/
