Started by three friends who wanted to stay in touch through comics, Whores of Mensa has published great cartooning by women since 2004. For our blockbuster 5th issue, we're collecting work by all of our cartooning pals. We want to make this one - The Party Issue - a gathering to remember.

For this issue, we want to print 250 copies - it doesn't sound like much, but it's enough to get Whores of Mensa a wider readership.

We're hoping to fund this issue through extra-special, ritzy Kickstarter pre-orders! We will print at least 42 pages of comics - more if we raise over our goal!

Any profits from our sales will go towards keeping this issue in print as long as possible.

Oh, and please watch our video for a preview of all of the great cartoonists involved.
Thanks so much for reading!

A note on our title:
"The Whore of Mensa" is a brilliant comic essay by Woody Allen, available in his 1975 collection "Without Feathers". Originally published in the New Yorker, this essay is the kind of writing we aspire to: sexy, original, and slightly cra-zay.
