I seriously didn’t know what level to pledge. (Ugh, Kickstarter, why won’t you let me pledge multiple levels?)
But if you like comics at all, Fantagraphics is a great company. Most of their stuff isn’t my jam, but I really respect what they do. (And the stuff that is my jam is beyond top notch.)
Ladies and gentlemen, Smut Peddler 2014 submissions are now OPEN.
Iron Circus Comics is looking for between ten and fifteen short, erotic comics to run alongside work from the all-star pervs listed above. You have just over a month to submit your proposal, so no dawdlin’!
If you’re interested in participating, wanna know the rules, or have a story idea to send us, click the image and read the submissions page. And if you want a copy of 2012’s award-winning volume of Smut Peddler for… y’know, uh, research… Grab one here!
2012’s SP was an award-winning, wildly-popular collection of ladycentric smut. 2014’s is gonna be even better. You’ll make sure of that, won’tcha?
Woo! After having such a great professional experience working on my piece in Volume 1, I highly encourage any aspiring smut peddlers to apply! And you’d better believe I’m working on a pitch for Volume 2.
Woooo I will be drawing some sexy stuff aw yeah! Looking forward to this. XD
Jen Vaughn! I am always excited to see her name on things. I met her at a Scott McCloud reading/presentation/signing thing when we were standing in the signing/meeting line after he spoke. She was very nice and I get a weird sort of thrill out of seeing her success in comics, given that I’ve known her about fifteen minutes. There’s just something awesome about seeing nice people make good.
250 books to 6. I want more of course, but I gave myself a budget of $30.
And I’m proud of myself for coming in perfectly. (And a bit under if I don’t count the Usagi Yojimbos, which are gonna be presents for R. It’s her favorite comic from childhood.)
ETA: Never mind, I’m adjusting my order because I did not estimate shipping correctly. Currently, shipping is more than 50% of the order price … which really doesn’t work for me.

Hey, we got our hands on some more copies of last year’s hardcover reprint of Jim Woodring’s classic The Frank Book! These went fast when we first offered them and we don’t expect these copies to last long either, so get yours while you can.
THE FRANK BOOK was a required text in one of my photography classes.
The Beat presents a 6-page preview of Nicolas Mahler’s Angelman: “If you’ve noticed yourself to be a comic enthusiast who has become more and more disillusioned with the corporate transformation of super-hero comics, ANGELMAN could well be the fresh breath of illustrated air you’ve been yearning for. What could easily be one of the most comedic releases thus far this year, Fantagraphics is releasing (in hardcover no less!) a new graphic commentary of the often-times outrageous and unbelievable trends in the comic industry.”
Don’t miss Free Comic Book Day this Saturday, May 5.
