“I’m in a unique position of having juggled every aspect of the production chain for the 30-plus comics in the Copra Press catalog,” Fiffe wrote on the campaign page. “Meaning that aside from creating a 24-page, full-color comic on a regular basis, I also take care of the business side of things: from shipping and handling to inventory and distribution. It’s all part of the experience, but it leaves little room to develop new projects. That’s where you come in!”
For those not familiar with the site, Patreon allows fans to become “patrons” of their favorite creators by contributing money to them on a regular basis, usually in exchange for different rewards, like access to behind-the-scenes sketches and information. In Fiffe’s case, he’ll share a new full-color comic book page from Negativeland once a week for anyone who has donated $3 a month. Pledging $5 a month will get you a signed and numbered print copy of the first issue when it is released.
