About Michael Jantze

I believe cartoons speak to people more easily than any other form of art, with economy and accuracy, to get to the heart of the matter and do it with a laugh.

My Patreon goal is to fund the The Norm® comic strip, a continuation of my syndicated comic The Norm, published since 1996. In 2019, I want to use your collective support to reserve more time to make comics and comic collections.

THE NOW
In 2019, I'll focus my energy on making  "The Norm 4.0" comic for GoComics and getting the first comic collection printed and distributed. Which we did!

THE PAST
I wrote and drew The Norm daily for 11 years, retired it in 2006, and then rebooted it as a weekly in 2015. 

“The Norm in Color,” "Knocked Out Loaded" and “The Norm 4.0” print books are sold at Jantze.com.

THE 2019 BENEFITS
The Norm 4.0 is published at gocomics.com/jantze. Norm and Reine have two kids, two jobs, two dogs, two sets of parents and too much to do. Sound familiar?  The Norm Classics are also on GoComics on a separate page. Your support here keeps the comics there free.

Occasional peeks into my process, you know: writing, penciling, inking, swearing.  

Exclusive peeks: If you support at the $5 TIER, you also have access to my monthly studio hangouts. The $10 TIER gets you on the list for my studio trash. The $25 TIER gets you one original strip every 12 months.

It's an open dialogue, please stay in touch and let me know what you like and don't like. And to all of you who have supported me these past few years, thank you so much!
Goals
$484 of $500 per month
Every patron gets a sketch. All of you. No kidding. You say that sounds ridiculously easy for you and a lot of work for me? Try me. We'll need more patrons, so share my page with all your friends.
