Romance is coming.

FRESH ROMANCE is a brand new, monthly, all-digital romance comics magazine. Join this Kickstarter campaign to fund the first three issues of FRESH ROMANCE, and get exclusive rewards in addition to becoming one of our first subscribers. With FRESH ROMANCE and our future projects, Rosy Press brings romance comics into the 21st century.

The first issue features sundry stories ranging from a clandestine, queer high school love affair to an impeccably researched and illustrated Regency-era romance. In addition to three forward-looking romances, each issue of FRESH ROMANCE delivers a relationship advice column by a quartet of divorced writers, behind-the-scenes art coverage, and a fashion report. Thanks to our ongoing anthology format, the kinds of stories we feature will be constantly evolving. The magazine will be R-rated, so while not all of the individual chapters or stories will be racy, there will be some adult content. Our goal is to bring avid comics readers and those new to comics together to enjoy the romance genre.

With talented creators on board like Kate Leth and Arielle Jovellanos with Amanda Scurti, Sarah Vaughn and Sarah Winifred Searle, and Sarah Kuhn and Sally Jane Thompson with Savanna Ganucheau, FRESH ROMANCE forges a new future for romance comics with modern characters, stories and a wide array of genres. Each month's issue of FRESH ROMANCE will have three full color comics stories, some of which are 10 pages long and can be enjoyed in a single issue, and some of which are much longer. Each story will also be released in its own ebook collection after it has run in FRESH ROMANCE.

These stories will remain creator-owned, yet a big part of the FRESH ROMANCE budget will be spent to pay the creators a page rate and royalties. Paying creators fairly is a cornerstone of the Rosy Press business model; we wouldn't exist without the hard work of creators, so we firmly believe they should be compensated fairly and retain control over their work. For every $10,000 we go over our goal, every single creator currently signed on to publish a story with Rosy Press will get a 15% page rate bump (so, at $48,000 everyone would get a 30% page rate bump and at $58,000 everyone would get a 45% page rate bump, etc).

With its digital platform, FRESH ROMANCE can reach a diverse set of readers. FRESH ROMANCE is the comics answer to the popular modern romance novel, and can be digitally delivered to anyone, anywhere, anytime. Content will be available in a variety of digital formats: via ComiXology or as a PDF, CBR, or ePub file, and will always be DRM-free. Unlike their real-world counterparts, FRESH ROMANCE stories never end – they will later be published as ebook collections.

Contributors

The first three stories in FRESH ROMANCE will be created by the following teams:

Kate Leth and Arielle Jovellanos with Amanda Scurti on colors

Character designs by Arielle Jovellanos

Kate, Arielle, and Amanda's story is a lighthearted take on classic high school romances with two queer women in the lead. Because Malie and Justine want to keep their romance a secret, they pretend to be competing over the same guy, Miles, but Miles also has a secret.

Arielle Jovellanos is an illustrator and comic artist (Five, School Spirit) based in New York. She likes sitcoms, showtunes, and storytelling structure. Also alliteration, apparently.

Kate Leth is a writer and artist best known for her webcomic Kate or Die and her work on the licensed comics Bravest Warriors, Edward Scissorhands and Adventure Time. She has a lot of tattoos and feelings.

Amanda Scurti is a New York-based illustrator, cartoonist and colorist. She works in comics publishing by day and comics creation by night, and in the afternoon she daydreams of petting dogs. She is currently a colorist on Black Mask's We Can Never Go Home and an illustrator for So What? Press's Tales of the Night Watchman series.

Sarah Vaughn and Sarah Winifred Searle

The Sarahs are doing a classic Regency romance, with lots of attention to period details. Catherine and Andrew are getting married - but neither one of them is happy about it.

Sarah Vaughn is the co-creator and co-writer of Alex + Ada with Jonathan Luna, published by Image Comics. She is an avid lover of historical romance novels and vintage romance comics.

Sarah Winifred Searle hails from spooky New England, where she writes and draws comics about relationships, history, and mysteries. You may recognize her work from Smut Peddler, Colonial Comics, Symbolia, or a bunch of other cool things. She is also exceptional at petting cats. Learn more about her work at swinsea.com.

Sarah Kuhn and Sally Jane Thompson with Savanna Ganucheau on colors

Sarah, Sally, and Savanna are working on a story about love in a coffee shop – where barista Ruby is on a mission to help people find love so she doesn't have to deal with people anymore.

Sarah Kuhn is the author of the forthcoming Heroine Complex trilogy, starring Asian American superheroines, for DAW Books and the geek romantic comedy novella One Con Glory, which is in development as a feature film. Her writing has appeared in Uncanny Magazine, Apex Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, Back Stage, IGN.com, StarTrek.com, Geek Monthly, Creative Screenwriting, and the anthology Chicks Dig Comics.

Sally Jane Thompson is a comic creator based in the UK. Currently drawing 19th c adventure "Red Jack" with writer John Dickinson for children's comics serial The Phoenix, her work includes coming-of-age graphic novel Atomic Sheep (AAM Markosia), and comics and illustration for various publishers including IDW, Soaring Penguin, Imagine Publications and more. Her work focuses on thoughtful stories drawn with organic, expressive lines.

Savanna Ganucheau is a colorist and illustrator currently living in Melbourne, Australia. Originally she’s from New Orleans, Louisiana, and misses it dearly. Honestly, she could really go for some boiled crawfish right now. She loves to make friends and talk to people. Chat with her on twitter anytime!

Future issues will also include the following stories:

  • A sexy and surprising fantasy tale written by Marguerite Bennett (A-FORCE; SLEEPY HOLLOW).
  • The first ever collaboration of writer Marcy Cook (The Mary Sue, Panels) and Maya Kern (the creator of MONSTER POP!), in which a couple wins, then loses, a heart-shaped helium balloon which they follow through the fair.
  • A romantic comedy about one woman’s deep, abiding love… for a Game Master by Jen Van Meter (HOPELESS SAVAGES) and Kyle Latino (OUTLAW TERRITORY Vol. 3) with Marissa Louise (DARK HORSE PRESENTS).
  • A fantasy story from the publisher of the SMUT PEDDLER anthology, Spike Trotman, about a woman in a tower who romanticizes a man she sees from above everyday.

Risks and challenges

I, Janelle Asselin, am an experienced editor and project manager with a history of putting monthly comics out on schedule. That being said, there are always potential risks in a project like this, which could include a creator getting ill or having a family emergency, or some sort of equipment malfunction. We're mitigating this risk by working ahead - by the time the Kickstarter campaign has run its course, the first issue will already be completed.

This project is very important to me and to all of the creators involved, so we’ll do whatever it takes to get Fresh Romance into the hands of readers who will appreciate it. We are ready to change comics and your help is an integral part of that.
