Escape From Terra is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.

A personal message from the cartoonist:

Patreon

Hey everyone, I really appreciate all my readers, new and long-standing, who enjoy reading my fanciful stories. Even though only a small percentage of you buy the printed volumes. I understand, times are tough. Yesterday I saw a pimp driving an old Honda Civic.

That said, I still need to pay rent, keep the lights on, and feed myself and my disabled child.

Maintaining a 5-day-per-week schedule on this strip is a full-time job, even with the help of a hired colorist. Advertising, book sales and sporadic donations help support me but to put it plainly, after the death of my wife I need more income to keep the strip going. I've been supplementing my income with savings which will run out next year if I don't bring in more dough. So, I've turned to Patreon.

Patreon is a website that was originally created for musicians who distribute work on-line but also works for authors and artists in the new Internet world. If you like the strip and want it to continue updating more than one or two days per week, please become a patron, donating anywhere from one dollar per month upwards through my Patreon page. Just click on the Patreon button below the comic on the quantumvibe.com page, and you can view my cheesy video and read about the incentives and milestones.

Again, thanks for reading!

Panel 3
Focus on Chang.
Chang: The current term is Political Officer.
Chang: The PO's primary job is to make sure the troops are ideologically on board with their orders …

Looking past Chang at Ed. Ed has his head cocked a bit sideways and a sarcastic grin.
