Club members are able to use their credentials to disable ads site-wide, providing a cleaner website and comic archive experience. You will also notice improvements to navigation features obscured by ads, unavailable without your membership credentials.

Preferential treatment

Bittersweet Club International bestows prestige on its select ranks. After signing up, you may reserve a name to use in comments on Candybooru. This reserved name will be designated as a valued supporter of the comic with a gold BCI symbol.

Patronage of the arts

Club membership does not come without its rewards, but one shouldn’t forget its core purpose: signing up for a membership directly supports Bittersweet Candy Bowl’s publication.

With a hectic update schedule and multiple offshoots, BCB is a full-time job for Veronica and Oliver. By making a generous contribution, Club members will receive more than the benefits listed above — they will ensure the continued publication of the series for everyone to enjoy.

Yes, I’d like to join Bittersweet Club International! I’m eager to receive instant access to over 530 pages of member-only comics, ad-free browsing and special recognition on the site for a one-time payment of $29.
