We're sad to announce that, as we feared, Swaggerdile has indeed had to close its doors. We ask supporters to please sign up on Patreon for content over the next month or so, we will be honoring a break for our Swaggerdile clients who cannot use Patreon whilst we set up a new direct payment method. Swaggerdile users can also switch their pledges to Patreon by lettings us know the email and other details they used on Swaggerdile when they sign up.
In other news, we are setting up a Tumblr account to let people know when we update our server and to advertise the server in general! (though for reference, a new image put up here usually is placed an hour or so after a server update!) https://catastrophecomics.tumblr.com/
And further news, there'll now be a small 10 day processing period we've had to enforce through Patreon due to their fraud prevention policies - this will be a small delay between new accounts being created and us being sure the money is really in there. We hope to fix this with our direct payments in the coming months!
Official patrons of the comic receive higher resolution pages before anyone else! In fact, right now you'll get to see over TWICE the comic, a whole chapter ahead (over 200 pages!) with more coming soon and extra sketch previews! Every month, about 14 pages are released to the club, and at nearly twice the resolution! 21 cents a page?! Not enough? Well a few dollars more ($5/Mo) will get you triple the resolution! Want an extra treat? $15 each additional month puts you in line for a raffle draw for a colored picture from us, on top of highest tier resolution (x5 this!).
We are sorry to announce a slow-down on our free pages in response to recent content theft. I once again encourage those interested in seeing the comic to consider pledging your support on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/catastrophe. As announced before, we will be forced to consider closing our server to new membership/supporters in the face of any more attacks on staff or leaks to share sites and with it we will more than likely close off the free site advertising (besides raffle prizes) in lieu of selling physical or digital copies of the comic when chapters are done.
Paid, trusted members of our Patreon receive around 3 pages a week and all of Milo's story so far in high definition for free! Remember that signing up before the end of the month means your pledge will be processed quickly to get you signed up for all the extra content! There is a small processing period of 10 days due to payment authentication. Supporters in the higher categories also get entered into a raffle to win free art each month!
We distribute our content via a private server, remember to check your email if you are a Patreon supporter for a link to our secure distribution server! If you DON'T have this server link and don't know why, please contact us via message on the pledge site!
A reminder that all NEW supporters are subject to a support threshold to maintain our distribution server, an additional fee on the first month of membership, or simply a delay until you reach the threshold for server membership. Patrons since before 2016 have nothing to worry about on this, your support already exceeds this threshold! See Patreon for more details!
This comic is a real labor of love for us all and your support is what makes it possible for us to produce it.
