Welcome to the Patreon Gallery!
So, what is a Conventional Wisdom Patreon Gallery? Well, on the off chance that you accidentally licked on this page instead of the main one, Conventional Wisdom is a webcomic about anime conventions and general geek life weirdness. It updates... whenever new stuff is ready. Big sets of comics about recent conventions usually go up a week or so after then con ends, and if there's a long stretch between cons, filler comics will come out on a weekly basis.
AAAAaaaaaaand, I also post extra Conventional Wisdom comics on Patreon, where I ask people to give me money! The plan was always to make that material available to Patreon supporters first -convention comics going up a week after the main update, and other comics on a weekly basis- and gradually make them available to the general public once the newness wore off. That's what this page if for: an easy place to browse through older Patreon comics and, hopefully, be convinced to sign up as a Patron supporter yourself!
There are two types of Conventional Wisdom comics being posted on Patreon right now: Bonus Convention Comics and Weekly Anime Comics. The Convention Comics are pretty self-explanatory, just more of the material I didn't use in the main update (I tend to write a lot more than I can realistically draw in one week). As I said before, those usually go up on Patreon a week after the main update, and absolutely every Patreon supporter can see them, even the basic One Dollar A Month level.
The Weekly Anime Comics are even more fun. As the name implies, I make a list of anime to watch and draw a comic a week as I work my way down. Every Patreon supporter can read the comics, but the REAL fun comes if you donate at the Five Dollar A Month level. Then, not only do you get to read the comics, but you actually get to add new anime to the list! There's a whole list of rules on the Patron page, but basically, you pay $5 a month, you get to tell me what to watch. Cool, right?
So, how often will this gallery be updated? That's... a good question, actually. It all depends on how long it takes each new set of comics to get finished. The newest Convention Comics will always be Patreon exclusive, so they won't be posted here until the NEXT convention is over. Depending on what time of year it is, that could be anywhere from a few weeks to several months. Likewise, I won't post any sets of Weekly Anime Comics until that series is finished and I'm well into the following one. After all, as much as I want people to see this stuff, the paying customers need to have first dibs as long as possible. All the more reason to become a paying customer yourself, right?
So poke around, enjoy what you see here, keep checking back to see when something new has been added (check the Facebook & Tumblr pages or my Twitter for notifications), and please, PLEASE, consider becoming a supporter on Patreon! Pretty please?
