It’s our goal to try to keep Dark Matters & Mischief free to the general public, however this is a labor of love and as much as we wish, we haven’t figured out how to alchemy love into money to pay for printing or webhosting fees! Help us cover the costs of printing and distribution by contributing to our Patreon account!

Additional funds raised through our Patreon will support the running of this website.
