Support Drive!

Monday, August 17, 2015 - 11:49 AM

DRIVE is turning out to be the greatest project I've ever worked on. I started the story just for me, but it's turning out that thousands and thousands of folks love the strip as much as I do.

If you're one of those folks, I'd like to invite you to support the strip on Patreon.

Patreon is kind of like Kickstarter: But where Kickstarter works for large, one-time projects (like a book), Patreon works for ongoing projects (like a comic strip). It lets readers directly support the art they love, with tiny little amounts. The goal is not for you to give a lot: The goal is actually to have lots of folks give a little. Because that all adds up.

Because of Patreon, I've been able to remove ALL advertising from the site, and invite in amazing guest artists to create DRIVE short stories. So please consider becoming a patron of the arts, and support the strip here!

Your Distant Homeland

Friday, July 31, 2015 - 05:09 PM

Many of you have heard me talk about "Tales of the Drive," and today we begin our first story: YOUR DISTANT HOMELAND, by the Eisner Award-nominated cartoonist, Dylan Meconis. It's an origin story of Nosh's time stranded in Russia, and will be updating once a week for the next 12 weeks. You're going to love it. Dylan is super talented, and her Nosh story is delightful.

"Tales of the Drive" will all be stand-alone stories set in the Drive universe, by some of the best artists working today. Some stories will focus on the crew, some on their backstory, some on distant parts of the empire. But all of it is just meant to be fun. More of what we all like, essentially. It's a filling out of the universe: Letting talented artists play in this sandbox for a while, and seeing what awesome things they create.

These stories are made possible by the financial support of backers on Patreon -- so I hope you'll consider becoming one! With your help, we can have more and more artists playing in the DRIVE universe!

More than anything else, I hope you enjoy these! The world of DRIVE feels like a special place to me, and letting more artists play with these characters and these locations feels like a great thing. *I'M* excited as heck to read these stories -- and I hope you will be, too!

-Dave
