23: Trauma   January 3rd, 2020

High- res printable file - $3 a month on Patreon gets you access to all pages.

Hi everyone, I have news about Patreon! Patreon is the platform where I get all of my funding for this comic as of yet, because some of my readers choose to pledge money every month, and I am super grateful to them.

I have just added new goals and tiers to the page! The tiers are different amounts you can pledge, each with unique rewards. I recommend checking them out - they each have a cute illustration.

The goals are like new year's resolutions - we have until January 2nd, 2021 to reach them, and after that I'll scrap them and write new ones. If we reach $400 a month by this time next year, I will continue to post comics once a week for at least another year after that. If we don't reach that goal it doesn't mean I won't continue posting comic weekly, but I may decide to slow down. Either way, if you're a patron, you will only be charged after every 4-5 comics. If we reach $500 a month by this time next year, I'll post a series of exclusive fictional comic outtakes in the patron feed for all patrons.

Lily: That sounds potentially traumatic.
Lane: It's ANNOYING, that's all. I don't use the term "traumatic" lightly.
Lily: Neither do I, but I think trauma exists on a spectrum wide enough to include little things people wouldn't usually put in that category.I tell people I almost died in a car accident and they generally understand. But my friend Kate was traumatized by working in retail, and when she says that, people are like, "EVERYONE hates retail work, but you have to suck it up and DO it." You can't compare people's experiences from the outside, because everyone processes things differently.
Lane: Yeah.
