Comics from every color of the rainbow!

ALPHABET is a comics anthology with LGBTQAI contributors drawn from previous winners of and outstanding applicants to the Prism Comics Queer Press Grant. It will also showcase the work of industry veterans who have been pioneers in queer comics and talented newcomers whose fresh voices document emerging identities and perspectives in our community.

What is the Queer Press Grant?

The Prism Comics Queer Press Grant was founded in 2005 to support up and coming LGBTQAI cartoonists. Prism Comics is the only organization in North America which provides a grant to emerging comics talent. Past winners include Steve MacIsaac (Shirtlifter), Ed Luce (Wuvable Oaf), Blue Delliquanti (O Human Star), and Christine Smith (The Princess). To learn more about the QPG visit prismcomics.org.

Risks and challenges

The vast majority of our contributors have turned in their stories as of this writing, and the design and graphics work for ALPHABET is finished but for a few touches. Our printer is ready to go as soon as they receive our final draft, and we're already establishing relationships with distributors. Stacked Deck Press and Prism Comics are gearing up for a long convention season of sales and promotion. However, there are still plenty of things for us to do before everything is ready for you, the generous reader and backer of our project, and your reading pleasure.

Once the campaign funds we still have to collect and assemble the material for the exclusive real life queer heroes coloring book and choose our final design for the ALPHABET t-shirt. Preparing the rewards, the final editing of the book, and the printing and transportation of all materials will take some time. Our goal is to have ALPHABET debut at WonderCon in Los Angeles over Easter Weekend 2016. We will fulfill all the backer rewards in April 2016.
