May 28th: There are TWELVE HOURS LEFT to pre-order Smut Peddler!

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. 

This project has pulled Smut Peddler out of the mothballs and once again gifted the world with quality filth, but in the format of a square-bound, standard-sized, black-and-white book. The new Smut Peddler contains over 350 PAGES of lady-driven dirty comics. And believe me, ladies can be pretty dirty.

     Our perverted all-star line up (names listed together worked on the same story):

     This pre-order event will determine the bonuses of SP's authors. They've already been paid 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 so on so forth INTO INFINITY. The more the Smut Peddler Kickstarter makes, the more everyone makes. Support artists! Support the arts! Buy porn!

     The Smut Peddler Pre-Order Project's two highest tiers, Smuggler and Pervert, come with a unique bonus: A custom Seagull brand courier bag, emblazoned with SP's very own mascot, The Smut Peddler herself. Only ten of these will be made available to Kickstarter backers, MAXIMUM. Now THAT'S a limited edition!

Our plans for the bag? It will be medium-sized, and come with all of Seagull's standard features: A water-and-abrasion-resistant 100% Cordura shell with vinyl lining, double-stitched load-bearing seams, two side pockets, Duraflex buckles and an adjustable anti-sway strap. Seagull says this bag is ideal for students, bike commuting and trips to the gym; Between you and me, I bet it would be pretty great for comic convention swag, too!

Here's the design we're planning on using on the bags, and a mock-up of the finished product!

And if all ten bags are snatched up, we'll order 'em with optional FALSE BOTTOMS for everybody! So you can smuggle porn for REAL. (Or at least pretend to.) 

Well, since you asked so nicely...

Convinced yet? I hope so!

FAQ

  • 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 2013.

    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? Well, 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 you're cleared for takeoff.

    Last updated:
  • A bookplate is a small, adhesive label affixed to the inside front cover of a book, to indicate its owner. They're also referred to as "ex-libris," which is Latin for "from the books of." Smut Peddler's bookplates will be slightly larger than average to accommodate the signatures of all the artists, but will still fit snugly on the inside front cover. They will also feature an area to record the name of the book's owner, and a bit of decorative illustration featuring The Smut Peddler (the book's mascot). They will likely be shipped unaffixed to the book, so the backer can decide where to put it themselves.

    Last updated:
  • After the Kickstarter is over, I'll be sending out something called a Backer Survey. It's part of the Kickstarter, it's built in, and if you pledged for any reward level, you'll get one. In the survey, I'll ask you your address, and how you would like the be credited on the acknowledgements page.

    Last updated:
  • Yes! Smut Peddler will likely be shipped in either a white or manila padded envelope. (Possibly a small cardboard box, but an envelope is more likely.) The exterior markings with be your address, postage, and a return address label for Iron Circus Comics. That's it!

    Last updated:
  • Yes! Paperback versions of Smut Peddler will be up for sale on http://ironcircus.com. . However, bookplates, hardcovers, and all other exclusive perks associated with the Kickstarter will not be.
