Welcome friends, fans and new readers alike! This is Iron Circus Comics' biggest Kickstarter EVER. We're so thrilled to present The COMPLETE Girls with Slingshots!

Danielle Corsetto's Girls with Slingshots debuted September of 2004, and ran for over 10 years, winning a Reuben Award, publishing thousands of strips, and gaining thousands upon thousands of loyal readers. By the time of the comic's grand finale in March of 2015, GwS was one of the biggest names in online comics, with countless fans visiting daily to read about the lives, loves and adventures of Hazel, Jamie, and their friends.

As the strip's popularity grew,TEN softcover collections were compiled. But after ten years of printing and reprinting, half of the volumes are sold out or hard to find. So, now that GwS has seen its last update, it's time to send this legend of a comic strip off in the collection it deserves.

Curious? Intrigued? New to the strip and wanna try before you buy? You can still read THE WHOLE THING on the Girls with Slingshots website.

 

The Complete Girls with Slingshots not only includes every single Girls with Slingshots strip ever uploaded (some with touched-up art!), but a TON of extras, like behind-the-scenes art, creator commentary, and some never-before-seen comics, all in full and glorious color!

As a matter of fact, we've got so much good stuff here that we can't even put it all in one volume! So we're not printing just one volume, but two; approximately 320 pages each, and coming in an incredibly beautiful, foil-embossed slipcase designed by Danielle herself.

We're keeping the rewards simple: just the books; both books with sketches by Danielle; or both books with sketches AND a piece of original art from GwS (sold out!!)!

The Artist's Edition sketches will be lovingly drawn in colored pencil, an upgrade from Danielle's usual quick ink sketches.

The DELUXE Artist's Edition will also include an original strip from the series (Danielle will hand-pick a strip that suits your preferences), or the original art for the covers or slipcase, if you're quick enough to snap it up first!

 

 

This Kickstarter is International-Shipping-Friendly!

Iron Circus Comics is excited to announce that this Kickstarter marks their  very first partnership with Blackbox, a fulfillment company from the folks behind Cards Against Humanity!

What does that mean in practice? That international shipping costs for this project will be much lower than we've ever been able to offer before, by as much as 85%. Blackbox manages this by shipping individual orders from other nations, reducing taxes and fees significantly.

Check out out backer levels and see our new shipping fees for yourselves!

 ***JUST ADDED: Stretch Goal!***

We weren't going to do any, but I figured it couldn't hurt to aim high and offer something that a *LOT* of people have been requesting: a pull-out insert of the rules to Strip Drunk Scrabble

If we hit $300k, every book will include a copy of the rules that you can remove and keep inside your Scrabble box. (PDF peeps, we can just send you the PDF of it!) Danielle will take immense pleasure in play-testing the game again to make sure the rules are still solid, wwwwink.

Risks and challenges

This is Iron Circus Comics' FOURTEENTH Kickstarter project. ELEVEN of our previous projects have been fulfilled and completed, while our twelfth and thirteenth are in the process as we speak. 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.
