By pledging your support, no matter how minimal, you will be helping us maintain the frequency and quality of The Comics Alternative. Our efforts are unlike any other comics-related podcasts out there. Whereas others focus almost entirely -- if not exclusively -- on the mainstream superhero fare, we do something different. We are more concerned with alternative, indie, and primarily non-superhero titles, and as such, we help draw attention to comics that might fly under most people's radar. We are especially interested in discussing the work of, and interviewing, creators who do great work but need more attention. So in supporting The Comics Alternative, you are also indirectly supporting the artists by helping us bring attention to their work.

By supporting us at $20 per month, in addition to what you get at the lower levels, you’ll be entered regularly into a drawing to receive a new book. These drawings will take place on a monthly basis and will include either a book that we review on the show or something that we had wanted to review but just didn’t have the time to do so. This is another way for us to share the reading love!

By supporting us with $100 a month -- and in addition to our deep gratitude, your recognition as a Podcast Patron, the bookmarks, the additional not-available-anywhere-else podcast episode, the official Comics Alternative t-shirt, and your name in the monthly drawing -- you can choose a title that we can review on our regular podcast. This is a big deal, in that we'll make special room on our regular episodes to read and discuss the book(s) that you recommend. You can ask us to look at an individual comic-book issue, a graphic novel, or even a trade collection. And you can do this once a month, as long as you continue supporting us at this amount. In essence, for $100/month support, Derek and Andy can be your little dancing monkeys, reviewing at your whim.
