Support Breaks and Muscle Memory on Patreon
Patreon is a crowd funding site that allows fans of artists and writers to fund their new projects one page at a time. Two notable comic projects are currently on Patreon:
Muscle Memory by Al Davison – probably best known for the graphic memoir THE SPIRAL CAGE, which explored his experiences growing up with Spina-Bifida, a condition Al was born with and wasn’t expected to survive. MUSCLE MEMORY: A survivors tale, is even more of a challenge than the first volume, as it not only continues to look at disability issues, but also addresses experiences of physical child abuse. This is not a story of victimization, but a story of survival and of winning against the odds.
Breaks by Emma Vieceli and Malin Ryder – Everyone wears a mask. What we see of people on the surface is so rarely what’s ticking underneath. And, in Cortland Hunt’s case, what he’s hiding might just be more than Ian Tanner is prepared for. BREAKS is the story of two young adults coming to terms with who they were, who they are and who they’ll become.
