None yet! Keep checking back!

 Many, many years ago, in the late Jurassic (or maybe it was 2003), a black-and-white, anthology minicomic called Smut Peddler was released by Saucy Goose Press. It contained "sex-positive, female-friendly erotic comics from the best and the brightest in the independent small press publishing world," and participants included Carla Speed McNeil (Finder), Layla Lawlor (Raven's Children), Sean Bieri (Jape), and Tom Beland (True Story, Swear to God). It was a fantastic series of comics, with three issues published before its extended hiatus. 

 In 2012, the title was pulled outta the mothballs by Iron Circus Comics (AKA me, Spike, alone in a room), but in the format of a square-bound, standard-sized, black-and-white book. This upgrade contained over 350 PAGES of ladycentric dirty comics, and it hit Kickstarter like a ton of bricks, earning over $80,000! Smut Peddler 2012 went on to win the Stumptown Comic Arts Award for Best Anthology of 2013, and become ICC's best-selling book of all time. And now, Smut Peddler is back with more, better than ever. 

It's time to fund the printing of Smut Peddler's 2014 edition. So WHO WANTS SECONDS?

Smut Peddler 2014 features a dream team of artists and writers, an all-star cast of creators premiering the finest filth you're gonna find in comics. They are, in no particular order:

You know what they say: nothin' trailblazes quite like smut! The concept of the crowdfunded contributor bonus was invented for (and popularized by) the original Smut Peddler Kickstarter. And it went over so well, we're doing it again. 

This pre-order event will determine the bonuses of SP's authors. They've already earned a page rate for their contributions, but the more money this Kickstarter makes, the more money they get.  

  • If the Kickstarter reaches $20,000, each contributor/team gets an extra $50.00.  
  • If the Kickstarter reaches $25,000, each contributor/team gets an extra $100.00
  • If the Kickstarter reaches $30,000, each contributor/team gets an extra $150.00
  • If the Kickstarter reaches $35,000, each contributor/team gets an extra $200.00
  • If the Kickstarter reaches $40,000, each contributor/team gets an extra $250.00.

 And so on INTO INFINITY. Pre-ordering Smut Peddler directly benefits the creators and the work you love! So support artists! Support the arts! Buy porn!

And it doesn't just stop with getting the book to print! We've got a lot planned for Smut Peddler! PRETTY EXCITED OVER HERE, FOLKS.

Molly Crabapple is a NYC-based artist and writer, and she's pretty effin' amazing, folks. She's been called “Occupy's greatest artist” by Rolling Stone, and “an emblem of the way that art could break out of the gilded gallery” by The New Republic. She's also a columnist for VICE, and she's written for The New York Times, Newsweek, The Paris Review, CNN, The Guardian, The Daily Beast, Jacobin, and Der Spiegel!

If this Kickstarter hits 30k, Molly will paint a limited-edition variant cover for Smut Peddler 2014! No more than 150 of these will be made, ever.

A number of Smut Peddler contributors have been so blown away by the response to this Kickstarter that they've volunteered their considerable talents to create a series of posters as a special backer level! The Smut Peddler Portfolio will consist of at least five 10" x 15" posters, screen or giclee prints, bundled together! This special backer level will unlock at $40,000!

At $50,000, every copy of Smut Peddler with Jemma Salume's cover will be enhanced with spot gloss! Dinah Might (our mascot) and the book title will be lovely, shiny, and beyond fancy.

At $60,000, I decided to figure out how to make a hardcover version of SP 2014 available.

And I did. It took this long!

The 2014 hardcover will feature Jemma's art, and be as sturdy as any discerning archivist smut-hound could hope for! 

 Oh, I never could say no to you.

FAQ

  • I won't be increasing the number of two-fer packs available; the discount on cover prices and shipping applied to that pledge level isn't indefinitely sustainable! If you still want a copy of Smut Peddler 2012 and there aren't any two-fer packs available, head over to the shop at http://ironcircus.com/shop/ and order one there. Shipping is only ~$3.00 domestically if you choose Media Mail, and you'll get your book MONTHS before KS backers do!

    Last updated:
  • The books will be shipped in either a plain cardboard box or a manila envelope. The only exterior markings will be your address, postage, a stamp that reads MEDIA MAIL, and a return address identifying the shipper as Iron Circus Comics.

    Last updated:
  • Kickstarter's policy on pornography prohibits live-action video and photographic pornography. Smut Peddler isn't one of those things, so it's okay! Heck, Smut Peddler isn't even the first brazenly-named, lady-driven, comic book porno Kickstarter! Search "Pornzine."

    How do I know this for sure? I didn't, until I asked Kickstarter's staff. If you're interested in creating a project on Kickstarter and not sure if it's in line with the rules, I encourage you to write them and make sure your project is okay!

    Last updated:
  • I'd love to make a new volume of Smut Peddler every two years. But let's get this one printed and shipped before we plan the next one! Bookmark my site, http://ironcircus.com, and start checking it for submission guidelines in 2015.

    Last updated:
  • The words "Smut Peddler" won't show up on your billing statement! When the Kickstarter concludes, you'll receive an email with the following title:

    "You Have Authorized a Payment to Iron Circus Comics, Kickstarter, Inc."

    And your credit card statement will look similar.
