It’s been a long time since we talked about Club PA but it’s still going strong. I first of all want to thank everyone who signed up when we first launched it last year. If you signed up previously it might be about time to renew and if you don’t have any idea what Club PA is, let me break it down for you.
Club PA is a subscription to Penny Arcade that gives you a bunch of special perks. You can see the entire list of stuff you get right here on the Club PA site. It starts with the removal of ads from the site and just gets better from there. If you’re a Club PA member you get access to the comic as soon as it’s posted, You get to download high res versions of each comic, You get discounts in the store and access to special Club PA merchandise including an exclusive Pin. You get early access to our DLC podcast and there’s actually a PA staff podcast just for members of the club. We’ve hosted pizza parties here at the office for members and I’ve seen Robert give special Q&A’s at PAX just for Club PA members. If you’re a PA fan we really try hard to make Club PA worth your money.
It only costs 10 bucks for the basic subscription but hit the site to see all the options. Many of you probably don’t remember but around 14 years ago, a system like this is exactly how Tycho and I kept the site afloat. We made special wallpapers for folks who supported the site and even did a few bonus comics. I hit the Internet archive to see if I could find any of those old posts and ended up poking around our site from 1999 and just shaking my head. I still remember building that web page and thinking, “I wonder if anyone will read this.”
Thanks for reading that.
And all the stuff in between.
