Please become a Defender of the Nifty and support Sluggy Freelance through it's last year of being a daily webcomic! Join by August 25th, 2016 to get a guaranteed year of access to all Defender Content!

Q: What if I want to join or renew after August of 2016?

A: Sluggy Freelance will stop being a daily webcomic sometime on or after August 25th, 2017. The Defenders program and/or Defenders content may change, so you might not get a full year's worth out of your membership. But because the main goal of the being a defender is to support the strip, past and present if not future, your membership will always do that!

What do you get with a Sluggy Freelance Defender of the Nifty Membership?

1) Showing support for the comic! Defenders of the Nifty is the BEST way to show support for Pete Abrams and Sluggy Freelance! Beyond Paypal's cut, there's no overhead. Every penny goes directly to Pete. This is the primary reason Sluggy Freelance has been able to stay around so long!

2) Ad Free Browsing! Advertising is a great revenue source for Sluggy Freelance, but a Defenders membership is better. Defenders can turn ads on or off in the  Account Settings page!

3) Exclusive Defenders Merchandise! You'll have access to the awesome Old School Sluggite shirt, and the Defenders pin. Also you'll have a shot at a new signed book! (For the last few years, every time I come out with a new book, I make 50-100 available to Defenders only and I personalize and doodle just about whatever you want in it. Supplies are limited but the only way to get a shot at one of these is to be a Defender!) Sample of Limited Supply Defenders Only

4) The Compendium: Behind the Scenes Info (1997-2011)!
Changed artwork, altered scripts, the real stories that inspired some of the strips and characters, and more!

5) THE BLOG: Behind the Scenes Info and Defenders Only Content (2011-2017)!
The Defenders Blog is a place for personal posts and conversations from Pete Abrams. From 2011 on, it gained additional Compendium duty! It's like "Compendium PLUS"!

6) BONUS COMICS! The Ramble Quatrologies are short scribbly fun, as is the Sunny Day strips. But the Sampire comic book is a full 36-page comic book (and I had hoped to make a trilogy out of it. Hey, maybe after I retire in 2017)! The 4th and Final Quatrology will be done before I retire!!!

Defenders Only Comics!


All that for Cost: $30 USD per year, with renewals at $25 per year (And this is the last year!)

Remember Defenders,
the NUMBER ONE reason to join is to support the strip and we can't thank you enough for that.
-Pete, Pete's family, and the Sluggy Freelance Team.
