STRUMPET ISSUE 1: The DRESS-UP ISSUE!
You loved ‘em as Whores of Mensa - now rediscover the UK’s foremost ladies’ comix coven in their new book, The Strumpet!
The first issue of this new series features work by Patrice Aggs, Jeremy Day, Mardou, Lisa Rosalie Eisenberg, Megan Kelso, Ellen Lindner, Tanya Meditzky and more! There are tales of saris, Wranglers, chickens, comics conventions, Kate and Wills, and even a flea or two. The Strumpet will have the same sass as Whores of Mensa - but with a new global reach! We don't call it a transatlantic flight of comix fancy for nothing - for this issue we have artists all over the US and UK, uniting two comics scenes long overdue for a love-in. We hope that everyone who loved Whores of Mensa 5 will come back for more comix adventures in The Strumpet.
Why give us a little extra in exchange for rewards? Your contributions help us pay for things like contributor copies and review copies, along with the postage to get each to their destination - a major expense considering the distance many have to travel! Also, Kickstarter pre-orders enable us to print new comics while keeping back issues in print.
The Strumpet will be printed at b5 (just a smidge smaller than our usual a4) with a color cover by Whores of Mensa stalwart Ellen Lindner and black and white interior art. It will
offer 40+ pages of quality comics by the following amazing artists:
Lisa Rosalie Eisenberg
...plus some special surprise guests!
