We have added some of our earlier concept work to the page and to an update!
The Monster Anthology is a series of books dedicated to all things Monster people! The Demon Edition is the 2nd volume in the series, and is the first to feature two separate versions, one is SFW (Ages 16+) and one is NSFW (Ages 18+).
In early summer 2013, a small team of talented artists lead by DCS put together the Monster Anthology! It was an awesome start to an awesome series of books for the love of monster people!
The first book was dedicated to Slime people and had a very modest starting budget. Once the initial goal was blown out of the water, it was decided the next volume was to be bigger and better than ever before, and here we are on volume 2: The Demon Edition!
Drawn by a dream team of artists, both editions feature both female, male, and non-binary demon characters. Including straight as well as queer couples. The inside contains comics, pin-ups, and illustrations! All together each book contains 150-200+ pages of demon fun!
The extraordinary everyday life, rituals, and cultures of various demon characters will be explored within these pages! Action, romance, horror, erotica, and more! There's a little demon in it for everyone!
Why two different versions?
The Monster Anthology started as an erotic only book series, but by popular demand a more "all ages" version was added. Both have separate PDFs and print copies!
Both versions are totally and completely unique from one another! (Thus the reason behind the high funding goal!)
We're hoping this new change will allow even more people to enjoy demons!
So, what's the difference?
The SFW version is Ages 16+. It will include stories of all kinds, about all different kinds of demons. It is 16+ for delicate themes such as religion, mild blood and gore, and some mild erotic themes. It should be generally fine for any teenager to read, but may be unsuitable for a younger audience. It is LGBT friendly.
The NSFW version is Ages 18+ only. It will include stories focused around erotica and relationships, again involving all sorts of different kinds of demons. It is LGBT friendly and sex-positive! It is intended for mature audiences only.

What's up with Volume 1 print copies?
Volume 1: Slime Edition was not expected to be as popular as it was, as such we did not print many extra copies of the book!
Right now, the best we can offer is some PDF and PDF bundles which include Volume 1!
The good news is, re-prints of Volume 1 are now an unlockable Milestone goal and will hopefully be available for purchase during this Kickstarter! So, let's push that goal!
These copies will still be the Limited Edition content as we are planning on re-vamping Volume 1 at a later time with much of the same content as well as new content!
However; for now, Volume 1 is simply available as a PDF only! Our apologies.
And what about Volume 3?
If all goes as planned with this volume and the double books are received well, we will indeed be doing a Volume 3! The content of which is to be announced! Stay tuned with our Tumblr for future details!
New rewards to unlock once we break our first goal!
An 11x14 inch poster of the NSFW book cover illustration (text-less) by Paexie will be produced! It will be available to purchase by itself after the campaign ends and will be automatically attached to all $75+$150+ reward tiers! This special backer level will unlock at $40,000!
A reward tier will be unlocked allowing everyone to purchase brand spankin' new re-prints of Volume 1!These books will be available in bundles and by themselves, and will be printed at a better quality than the original first set of Vol.1 prints.This special backer level will unlock at $60,000!
...AND MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED!
We will be actively updating the Kickstarter with news and updates!
Thank you all so much!

Risks and challenges
This volume is the 2nd in the series, with the first book being fulfilled the same year it was produced! We plan to do much of the same with these two books.
This Kickstarter is to pay each artist, make some sweet merch, cover shipping, and print the first initial 300 copies of each book. (Hopefully more, depending on how many pledges we get!) The more money we get the more we can pay each artist and the better chances we'll have for an even better Volume 3!
The price of each book factors in printing cost, shipping cost, and pay for each artist. (The more we sell, the better each artist gets paid!)
The only delays which we expect are shipping/printing delays! But, we're well ready for them which should help the process run more smoothly. Books are estimated to be shipped around November-January, and we plan to stick to that schedule as best we can.
Backers will be well informed on the progress of each book every step of the way!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
