If you didn't notice, I rearranged the sidebars on the site next to the comic pages. I nixed the Paypal donate button because I always felt weird about having it to begin with, and replaced it with a button from Ko-fi, which, if you are so inclined, lets you help me out just a little by making a small, 3$ donation--a.k.a. buying me a coffee. I like coffee. I especially like fancy Starbucks coffees that I usually can't afford. So, you know, if you like the comic and want to help me stay awake long enough to finish pages, that's an option now. If you donate on there, you should get a thank you message with a link to a DC wallpaper I've had sitting around for awhile and never uploaded anywhere public, if you wish to grace your desktop with Riza's silly face.
If you want to help out the comic in a more substantial way, I also added a link to my commission info, since I feel way better about taking money if I'm giving something that I don't already give out for free in return.
I've had friends suggest that I do a Patreon or something, but honestly my schedule is so inconsistent that I don't feel confident that I'd be able to provide extra content for Patrons on a regular basis, so this one-time stuff is my substitution. Not that ANY of it is required; DC will always remain free to read regardless of whether I'm making any money on it or not.
Anyway, Question of the Update: What do you think little Dae's going to do when he wakes up?
Dae is probably going to, if he hasn't done so mentally already, curl into a ball and cry for a bit then pick himself up, swear some kind of "never again" oath (though we know how that turns out), and then start life as someone who may or may not officially exist.
As for Patreon early access or even sketches are something you might be able to do and I've seen it done.
