The second issue of The Strumpet, the only comic to unite comix-loving ladies from the US and UK comix scenes, is in the works - and we need your help to make it a reality!  

Our new, 'stretch' goal is to get 100 pre-orders through Kickstarter, so we can get the work of our wonderful cartoonists into more readers' hands.  To do that, we're using some neat Kickstarter rewards to entice you to pre-order!  

The Strumpet 2 will assemble the talents of Kripa Joshi (Miss Moti), Julia Scheele (Peckham Invalids), Patrice Aggs (The DFC and The Phoenix), Emily Ryan Lerner (Buy Olympia), Badaude (Tate, Guardian, Times), Tanya Meditzky (The Man Who Clapped), Choi Juhyun (Under The Skin of the Wolf), Robin Ha (Marvel), Karrie Fransman (The Guardian, the Times, The House that Groaned), and many more.  This new collection will be 85+ pages (at least 30 pages more than our last issue), bursting at the seams with excellent stories and beautiful art.  

Our theme: Going Places.  We're obsessed with all things travel, and this issue will take you all over the world.  Plus, the brilliant cover is by UK small press star Jeremy Day (Whores of Mensa, The Weekly Comic) - don't you need this book for your collection?

Pre-order today and receive some wonderfully Strumpetty gifts, as well as an invitation to our US and UK launch parties!

Want to know more about what we do?  Read our interview at brilliant illustration site Pikaland, and check out what the Comics Journal and Page 45 had to say about Strumpet 1.  

Thanks for your help reaching our goal!
