The Strumpet is back for an epic third issue - and this time, the theme is 'tasty'. We asked creators new and returning what they found tasty - and we think you'll be as surprised as we were by the results. Food, sex, and, erm, opera are amongst the avenues of exploration chosen by our Strumpets - not that they stop there! Ever wonder where your street food comes from? Ever fancy a catfight between Sookie Stackhouse and Bella from Twilight? Well, then read on!

Why order now? With comics by Hannah Berry, Robin Ha, Hazel Newlevant, Colleen Frakes, Hayley Gold, Dre Grigoropol, Ellen Lindner, Kripa Joshi, Jennifer Hayden, Freya Harrison, Becky Hawkins, and many more; an interview with foodie comix queen Sarah Becan and a beefy review section bursting with comics we love and loathe, everyone's fave transatlantic lady annual is better than ever. 

What's our goal? To reach as many of you as possible, print this new issue and keep promoting artists we love. Distribution is always a challenge in the indie comix game - if you want a copy of issue 3, we suggest you act now. We have a range of choices depending on how rich you tastes are! (Sorry, had to get the 't' word in there!)

After all, once a Strumpet, always a Strumpet - you will not regret your alliance with this band of cartoonistas.

Risks and challenges

Hello Strumpet fans! If you've been with us from the beginning, you'll know that we treat our Kickstarters with a lot of loving care - it helps us to keep The Strumpet going. It's hard for indie comics to get distribution these days, after all.
We have mailed out all of our rewards in a timely manner, and always encourage our fans to get in touch with any questions and concerns along the way. Both Kripa Joshi and Ellen Lindner, the editors, are active players in the comix communities in their respective countries - we care about our reputation, and want to make sure that all the Strumpet fans get exactly what they expect. We have received excellent feedback on our two past campaigns, perhaps partially because we post regular updates and photos as we fulfill the various rewards. If you have any questions, please get in touch - and check out our blog, http://www.strumpetcomic.blogspot.com for images from past campaigns.
