FundingEdit

Revoy wants to change the comic book industry by removing intermediate steps in the production process. Pepper&Carrot is free, but Revoy lets people support him on the Patreon crowdfunding platform. You can sign up to give a small amount of money per episode that he makes. Patreon takes 5% of the money. The credit card companies take another part.[7] This is still less than a traditional comic production, where the publisher, distributors and retailers want money.
