Would you like to be reading Schlock Mercenary ad-free? How about being able to read it a week at a time, and in a higher resolution?
Join the Schlock Mercenary Patreon, and for just $2.50 per month, the entirety of the Schlock Mercenary archives will be available to you for week-at-a-time, ad-free browsing¹. And at $5.00 per month, you’ll be reading in retina resolutions².
What does week-at-a-time browsing look like?
Well, it’s hard to deliver the experience via a screen shot. We had to pull back a quite to show you just how much content is on each page, and from back here it’s kind of hard to read.
You’ll be scrolling down (probably with the mouse-wheel), uninterrupted by ads, and when you reach the end of the page you can arrow-key (or click “Next”) to advance to the next big stack of Schlock Mercenary.
What’s the difference between the regular and high-res versions of the strip? Math says “65% more pixels,” but it’s probably better to show what that will look like. Here’s a side-by-side comparison, using the fourth panel from Thursday, January 23rd.

There are other benefits to becoming a patron, like digital goodies³, and front-of-the-line, pre-order access to new merchandise. Head over to patreon.com/schlockmercenary and have a look.
² High-resolution browsing requires the use of a browser capable of requesting the high-res images. As of this writing that means almost all mobile browsers, MacOS browsers, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge.
³ This blog post serves as a fine reminder to Howard and Sandra that it’s time to put up some more Patreon-exclusive digital goodies.
