Come Together is an erotic anthology featuring a host of comic talents from all over Europe. 

Our book's theme is Reunion; old friends sharing sizzling tension in a Finnish sauna, long distance lovers yearning for each other on a train ride to rural Italy, rival fashion designers clashing in battles of sexual prowess in Berlin, and more.  

Thirteen stories from many cultures and countries, covering a multitude of times, places, peoples and sexualities... In a world growing increasingly more divided, it's time to Come Together.  


Our cover art by Ariel Vittori is beautiful, but wait until you see what's under the covers....

That glimpse not enough for you? Take a look at some of our lovely sample pages:

The book is bursting with sexy stories from a host of exceptional artists that come from, live or have lived in Europe. Find out more about them here:

Come Together Members List

This project is important to us because as minority creators of all kinds, we struggle to find erotica that speaks to us. Our anthology focuses on connection, consent, and a whole lotta people coming... together. 


We’re passionate about supporting our artists, so the bulk of the money for this project is going straight on their pay. Plus in the style of other wonderful anthologies of the smutty kind, every £2,500 we go over our goal we’ll increase their pay rate by £5 per page!

Projects like these are particularly important in a time where the larger social media sites are clamping down on adult content, something that directly hurts people like our creators. We're making sure they can continue to create by publishing the kind of book we want to see in the world. Speaking of...

We’re keeping it simple and focusing on the book, though we do have some very special rewards to offer...




Tab Kimpton is a Queer comics author based in Manchester, UK. His works include Khaos Komix, an LGBT coming of age epic, Shades of A, an A-typical romance between an asexual and a kinkster, Minority Monsters, a travellers guide to the queer creatures of Alphabet Soup Land, and Sir, Butler and Boy, a filthy glimpse into the secret lives of three Victorian men.

Alex Assan is a comic artist originally from Tel Aviv and currently based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Their work includes Slipshine’s erotic space-opera comic Captain Imani and the Cosmic Chase, Hiveworks’ noir webcomic Shaderunners and various anthology projects. They really love the Muppets.

This project also could not have happened without help from Niki Smith, our first confirmed artist whose expertise in anthologies was invaluable, and Eve Greenwood for their assistance with fonts and design.  

Risks and challenges

The admin side of this anthology will be managed by Tab Kimpton who has funded, printed and successfully fulfilled 6 comic kickstarters.

All the artwork is finished besides minor corrections so now it's just about getting the book together for print. We're using an experienced printer, are working with physical proofs, and are sending the book off to print way before any weird Brexit deals do or don't happen at the end of October.
