There are two things you can expect from Sol Comics: 1) great storytelling, and 2) variety. 

The XII is the flagship series of Sol Comics, a collection of stories about a clandestine group of killers rebuilding a true metropolis in the ruins of old Chicago. When it’s all said and done, The XII will span twelve books (60 issues, over 1200 pages), telling the origins of the secretive group and the great city they've built.

Short Stories
Sol Comics is more than just The XII, there's also a ton of short stories. “Short” is a term used loosely, as the length can run from as little as five pages to a five-issue mini-series. Sol Comics’ short stories delve into multiple genres, themes, and tones – from sci-fi and fantasy, to horror, to ordinary life. 

Sol Comics' History
Sol Comics began in 2011 when I first sat down to write The XII.  There have been plenty of setbacks and a lot of learning, but I love these stories too much to quit. Before creating the website, I had already written 16 issues of The XII, a graphic novel, and several short stories. I worked hard to ensure that I already had several stories colored, lettered, and ready to go so that I could offer a consistent, weekly product to my readers. We

How You Can Help
One way or another, I will make Sol Comics  thrive, but with your help I can do it a lot faster. As a writer, my biggest contribution to the comic making process is scripts. But in order to bring the stories to life, I need artists, and that costs money. There are numerous costs to bringing a comic to life, such as web hosting, printing costs, and travel expenses, but as a writer, the cost of artwork is vital.

I only work with the best artists, and I want to continue to do so. With enough funding, I can focus more and more on comics. I can print more comics, attend more conventions, meet more fans, and spread the word about my comics.

A Bit About Patreon
Sol Comics has come a long way since I first started on The XII, and if it's going to reach the next level, I'll need your support. Every dollar counts. All of your donations are just that, donations. The content on the website is still free, and you can opt out at any time. You can pay as much or as little as your want,  but however much you donate, know that your dollars are paying some tremendous artists to work their magic.

I can't tell you how much your support means to me. Sol Comics started as a labor of love, but with your helpit can be so much more. I love writing these stories, and I hope you love reading them. Thank you for reading. Thank you for your support.
