Jamie Gambell, the creator behind solid comic series such as The Hero Code has decided to give store platform Patreon a shot. You’re able to purchase, digital or physical comics of his comics coming out, similar to a crowdfunding site like Kickstarter. What’s nice, and special about this, is the profits that would normally go to Patreon will instead be donated to charity.
In addition to Jamie Gambell receiving your pledge amount as support, for this holiday season Patreon will donate 100% of its proceeds to help fund HIV/AIDS vaccine research by supporting a revolutionary research team called Immunity Project.
So, not only will you get a chance to get some awesome indie comics (trust me they’re really good), but part of your money instead of going to some heartless corporation, it goes to charity. Do some good, and get some cool comics too!
