Guys, I never ask you for ask you for anything but…

Actually I ask you guys for quite a bit and you have always gone above and beyond.  You support this comic and I am eternally grateful for that.  But I am afraid I have to go to the well of you generosity yet again.

This time it’s not to help yours truly but to pay back someone that helped us all.  Someone without whom this comic would not exist.  An angel that came and saved Exiern is in need of our help.

About 3 years ago I had just switched the art over from my own to Studio Boom.  For 3 month he had been drawing spectacular art.  But there was a problem.  My art was still in the archive.   The comic was expanding but it didn’t earn enough to keep Boom on staff more or less have him redraw the archive.  It was looking like at the end of the month I was going to have to let him go.

Then Eri came along.  She, a loyal reader, agreed to foot the bill to redraw a large portion of the archive.  Her money kept the comic going and more importantly her money paid for the redrawing of the transformation scene at the beginning of the comic.

As you all know the sales of that transformation scene made the comic viable and enable Boom to stay on Exiern.  With out Eri there would be no Exiern as we know it and probably no Exiern at all.

Now Eri has run into a bit of trouble.  She is studying to be a nurse.  Or was.  The government has cut off her financial aid and while she is working a job she doesn’t have enough to pay for school.  Without some help her dreams are over.

conflictedFLATI am asking for your help  Below you see a paypal button.  100% of the proceeds from that button I am going to donate to Eri to help her pay for college.  To anyone who donates I will send this special pinup image that I was saving for a rainy day.  Anyone who donates over $10 can opt to receive an 11X17 print of the image.

(Yes I know it has nothing to do with this situation and is a bit perverted but that all I had, ok!)

Please give what you can.  Eri was and angel for Exiern in it’s time of need now it’s  time for the all of us to be her’s.
