This Patreon is a set-and-forget way to subscribe to The American Bystander.
THANK YOU to everybody who has subscribed so far — more and more people are subscribing, and it means so much to all of us. 

WHY SUBSCRIBE:
Our patrons receive…
…every issue of The American Bystander as it is published, in paper and/or PDF format.
…back issues for just $17.50 each (30% off).
…gift subscriptions for just $10 each (60% off).
…invitations to swanky Bystander events.
...and more to come! 
The more of you there are, the sweeter we can make these deals, so spread the word!

WHAT IS IT?: 

The American Bystander is an all-star print humor magazine in trade paperback book format. Our staff is perhaps the greatest agglomeration in the history of print comedy, including people from The Simpsons, The Onion, Monty Python, National Lampoon, SNL, The New Yorker, SPY, Letterman...The New York Times called us “essential reading for comedy nerds," and Newsweek called us “the last great humor magazine.” People love this damn thing; our crowdfunding campaigns have raised over $200,000. 

HOW THIS WORKS:
Every time we do an issue, subscribers will automatically receive it via mail. Subscribers at the $5 level will receive a PDF; subscribers at the $20 level will receive a print copy. Subscribers at higher levels will receive all sorts of additional goodies; periodically we'll run special offers only for subscribers. Don't worry — you'll only be charged when we do an issue, not monthly!

WHY SUBSCRIBE?
1) You'll never miss an issue. People write me, sad. Why suffer? 
2) You'll get Bystander at the cheapest price available. 
3) You'll support 150+ writers and artists who really appreciate it.
4) You will help Bystander become the fearless and unkillable print humor magazine that the United States desperately needs. Subscriptions are the ONLY WAY for us to avoid being held hostage by advertisers, distributors, or political pressure.
