The Scarlet Derby and Midnight Jay is an ongoing web-based superhero fiction series which began in 2013 about a pair of married superheroes in the Victorian era. Since its inception, the series has spanned 2 lite-novels, 4 comic book issues, a running YouTube series and an ongoing streaming presence on Twitch. As a patron, your money would assist in taking the series to a new level: creating a semi-animated online action-adventure series for YouTube and a musical radio drama to be released on Bandcamp. Your funds will largely be used to give fair compensation to individuals participating in the upcoming projects, such as voice actors, and music designers.
Tiers
Behind the Scenes Blog
$1 or more per month

For pledging just a dollar, you have access to the behind the scenes blog posts on Patreon. I'll blog regularly about my progress on all the projects I'm working on, and give regular updates on where your patreon funds are going to help these projects get made. Also, thanks to our most recent goal of $100 monthly donations, we will be posting a 12 page monthly exclusive comic for donors at this level. 

1 Week Early Access for YouTube
$5 or more per month

Whenever a new episode of The Scarlet Derby Says, or the upcoming adventure series is released on YouTube, you will receive a private link on patreon to the episode one full week before its official public release. 

Exclusive 5th panels & Bonus Metafiction
$10 or more per month

Twice a month, people on this tier will be able to see extra bonus panels and text associated with the free webcomics and short stories on thescarletderby.com. These are exclusive to Patreon viewers on this tier, and will never be re-printed in later novels and reprints of the comics.

Be Named as a Derby Cadet
$25 or more per month

Patreon supporters at any level will get their name in the credits of future YouTube videos, but if you're at this tier, The Scarlet Derby will say your name out loud during the post-credits of the video, along with a few extra wisecracks. You'll get to be a part of The Scarlet Derby's very special entourage, The Derby Cadets, at this tier.

Random Snail Mail
$50 or more per month

Join this tier, and EVERY SINGLE MONTH, I'll send you a one of a kind piece of production material through regular mail. Maybe it'll be a sketch, or a piece of an old manuscript. Maybe it'll be an autographed party favor like a kazoo, or a yo-yo. It's mysterious, it's fun, it's just like the kind of stuff your mom and dad would get for joining their fan clubs back in the day, and unlike other patreons, new stuff will arrive every month you remain subscribed to this tier. 

Goals
$147 of $300 per month
Do you want to see the webcomic updated every single day? Well, $10 salary per page over 365 days equals $3650, or roughly $300 a month. If we reach this goal. If we reach this goal, I will begin updating the webcomic literally every day.
