Letters for Lucardo: An Erotic Graphic Novel

$22,143

Ed Fiedler is a common man.  

61 years old and employed as a scribe in a royal palace, his most regular client is Lucardo von Gishaupt, a forever-young aristocrat... and member of the mysterious and revered Night Court. When the eternally 33-year-old Lucardo and the aging Ed develop feelings for one another, both are forced to contend with the culture shock of a mortal man's presence among the deathless, the dangerous disapproval of the sitting Lord of the Night Court, and Ed's own ever-present mortality, threatening to bring an end to their romance in the blink of an everlasting eye.

Letters for Lucardo is the first erotic graphic novel in Noora Heikkilä's four-part series about the dangerous love between human and superhuman. Brought to you by Iron Circus Comics, the publishers of Smut Peddler and Yes, Roya.

 

Letters for Lucardo is the first volume in a planned four-part series of erotic graphic novels. The first book is 140 pages of black and white art.

And allow us to repeat ourselves: This is an erotic graphic novel. It contains adult situations and content, and is inappropriate for anyone under age 18.

 

Many Iron Circus backers may recognize Noora's art from one of our previous erotica collections, My Monster Boyfriend. Noora is the author of one of our best-received MMB shorts, A Winged Man Flew into the Shed. We're incredibly pleased to have the opportunity to publish her again.

Curious about the book? On the fence about backing? That's okay! We here at Iron Circus Comics are pretty big proponents of Try Before You Buy. And if you want to see more of Letters for Lucardo before you back the project, you can read a short excerpt right now to help you decide. Click the image below to get started!

 

We're keeping this one simple: No bundles, no hardcovers, no stretch goals. Any add-ons will be handled at fulfillment, via Backerkit.

Risks and challenges

This is Iron Circus Comics' TENTH Kickstarter comic project. Eight of our previous projects have been fulfilled and completed, and the ninth is in the process of being printed and completed. Our track record speaks for itself!

There's always the danger of past-due fulfillment, printing disasters, and other small hurdles. But rest assured: this ain't our first rodeo.
