Further thinking on Patreon - perhaps I should test this for the subscription service, rather than asking for an up front subscription?
One idea would be to keep it as a purely Hero Code thing. I would be doing the main series, and the Theatre of War mini-series. I'd like to aim for around a book every two months.
It could be something along the following, in terms of the backing - digital subscription, physical subscription, trade/graphic novel subscription only (that is, rather than getting the individual issues, one could back at a higher level, and get the trades as and when they were available).
Another thing I could do would be to run it as a Monkey Pipe thing - that is every time a MPS book is completed, subscribers would get a copy. I would do it no more than once a month.
