I am trying to make something worth your support. Here are a few ways you can help put this experimental project on the right track:
Images are universal; almost everyone, regardless of their country and language, understands them. Wordless comics need no translation, except for their title. In English, Silent Comics is a good metaphor. It gives a context, tells what the project is about. How would you translate these two words?
Make some noise for Silent Comics
Spread the word about silent-comics.com (the publishing site):
Write an article or a review.
Maybe this is something to blog about.

Review code <…/>
Are you a developer? You can review the theme code for the publishing site, which is currently in development. I’m not a programmer so there is room for implementation.
HOW ELSE CAN YOU HELP?
Do you enjoy watching and reading comics for free? Designing good comics takes time and effort, and so does building and maintaining a publishing platform. Most online comics depend on some kind of dreadful revenue model based on advertising but there must be a better way. In an ideal world, comics should be free free to preview online, but first and foremost, they should be free of unsolicited advertising clutter. Still, any independent, advertising-free publication comes at some cost. That’s where subscription comes in. The word “subscribe”, as in magazine “subscription”, comes from the Latin for “underwrite”. Readers subscriptions underwrite the cost of each comic in advance of its publication. Here is how you can you become a subscriber:
Support SILENT COMICS on Patreon
Become a patron of SILENT COMICS on Patreon.
Champion SILENT COMICS through PayPal
One time donations
Commission original art
Soon after the project launches you will be able to commission original artwork from the series. Sign up below to the SILENT COMICS shop on Gumroad and I will keep you posted.
Short text translations introducing each story release might be welcome in the future. ↩
