The Bittersweet Club International card
Some have said a glimpse of its lustrous shine grants the cardholder access to the upper echelons of high society, sways business associates, and waives speeding fines. After signing up, you will be issued the Bittersweet Club International Card, your key to the private members’ section and a symbol of your personal prestige.
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.
As a current Bittersweet Club International member, you may enter all regular drawing lotteries during each Bittersweet Candy Bowl Patreon campaign stream and receive a chance at your own personalized drawing request. See some examples of what is possible:
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.
