Greasy Space Monkeys has been free to read online since 2013. With your help, GSM (and my other comic Stillwater Springs) will continue to be free for the forseeable future.

Making comics full time is every girl's dream. But it's my destiny. And my dream. Currently I put in a good 10-15 hours on top of my normal work every week. If support ever reaches a point where I can take on less freelance work, I'd love to update Greasy Space Monkeys twice a week, and Stillwater as often as possible.

At the moment, there is a Niya Maintenance shirt/hoodie design and stickers on my RedBubble page, and I'm working on a print/pdf collection of all of the strips, but the best way to support us is through Patreon.

What is Patreon?

GSM Strip Progression

Patreon is a service that allows readers to support artists by contributing monthly (or by update) donations. Originally created to support musicians, it now features all kinds of artists including comic writers and illustrators. If you're unfamiliar with the site, it's really worth checking out some of the awesome artists on there.

Every $1 pledge goes a long way towards helping us keep making GSM. If everyone that read GSM gave $1, we'd already be full time!

If you'd like to give a little extra support, the higher tiers include behind the scenes info and sketches, making-of videos and lineart of Stillwater Springs.

I'm looking at getting a Paypal donate button on the site, but until then if you'd like to give us a stack of cash (or simply drop us a line) you can reach us at reine.brand (at) or (at)
