What's up, and welcome to Pete's Basement! The best, most authentic, and hilarious comic book show anywhere since 2008! It’s tough to find like minded friends to geek-out with. That’s why Pete and his buddies get together every week in Pete’s Brooklyn basement to talk about comics, and YOU’RE INVITED TOO! Tune in and discuss everything from NEW COMIC BOOK DAY, to GOLDEN and SILVER-AGE COLLECTING, to TOYS, CARTOONS, MOVIES, TV, Classical Literature, WHISKEY, and everything in between! We’re just a bunch of grown-ups with jobs and kids, who never gave up our love of comics, toys, and sci-fi.

AND did we mention we’re FUCKING HILARIOUS?

First we’d like to say thanks to the thousands of you who do tune in each and every week, email us, comment on social media, and join in live. YOU ARE THE BEST! You are the reason we’ve been doing this for so long. And special recognition to the ones who have supported us with your money in the past by buying t-shirts and merchandise, or on Indiegogo, or subscribing to our premium show. Your support has meant a great deal to us, and in a very real way has kept us on the air.

THANK YOU and Cheers (klink)!

You’ve allowed us to not do the things we don’t want to, like prostitu-- er, I mean advertisements or sponsored messages. To be good, we’ve got to be as authentic and uninterrupted as possible, like something you’d find on a premium channel. We’re opinionated, raw, not pandering, and we are intend to keep it that way.

That’s where Patreon comes in. Now YOU can be a PATRON of PETE’S BASEMENT. So what exactly is a patron?

From the North Haven Community School:

During the Renaissance, being a "patron" meant much more than being a wealthy person who sponsored an artist for their work. It signified a way of life, a ranking, a prestige that members of the upper classes strived for and the lower class aspired to.

You are like the Pope, and Pete’s Basement is like Michelangelo.

You want to fulfill your vision of a Golden Era of Geekdom, and so you sponsor our creation of Pete’s Basement-- the Sistine Chapel of comic book podcasts. A work so fantastic in it’s enormity and rich with innovation and impact that society will be forever altered by it. Grown men will openly weep and embrace their enemies bringinging an end to all war and economic disparity. Scholars will study its depths for thousands of years until a quantum harmony causes a glorious unification of love and understanding due to the indescribable beauty of the many lessons taught to humankind by Pete’s Basement, and the heavens and all matter will be brought together in a new level of consciousness THANKS TO YOU AND YOUR PATRONAGE!

AND did we mention we’re FUCKING HILARIOUS?

Basically you use this website (Patreon.com) to pledge continued monetary support to us. However much you choose and can afford. From a dollar a month, up to billions of dollars in gold bullion. And aside from our undying gratitude, you’ll get exclusive rewards like membership to the official Pete’s Basement fan club, exclusive merchandise only available to patrons, exclusive hangouts with THE Pete and Basement crew! And the rewards just keep getting more exclusive as your patronage grows. For instance, at the two million dollar a month level, you get to MARRY PETE! Don’t like him that much? No problem, you get to marry him to a third party of your choosing! Wait-- oh no? What? We’re not doing the ‘Marry Pete’ thing. Sorry. I guess not that one. But lots of other very exclusive perks come with your patronage.

But we really want to hear from YOU, what types of rewards you’d like to see. Feel free to drop your ideas on us, and we’ll try our best to make your wishes come true. And we have a lot of cool milestones in mind that will kick in once we reach certain levels. Merchandise, special show, and cool contests to unlock.

There’s no risk, you’re free to cancel your pledge at any time.

This allows us to be way more flexible with what we offer. From now on the ENTIRE VIDEO SHOW will be available free of charge to everyone. That means the live Periscope show is here to stay! And you can look forward to more ways to hang out and geek out with your favorite subterranean comic book buds as we grow our patronage.

Goals
$26 of $100 per month
Who likes ads? Aside from during the Super Bowl, and maybe advertisers themselves, no one. That includes us. That's why for the paltry sum of $100 per month, we will remove all advertising from Pete's Basement products. No ads on YouTube, no ads on petesbasement,com, nothing sponsored in any form. Consider it a low hanging fruit to kick start our Patreon.
