The Smut Peddler line of woman-made erotic comics debuted on Kickstarter in 2012, and, in the face of claims that women don’t read enough comics- OR enough porn- to support such an idea, its 2012 and 2014 volumes earned over a quarter million dollars combined.

Smut Peddler’s secret? All kinds of bodies, all kinds of sexualities, and all kind of genders, in awesome, consent-driven smut. And they’ve got more in the pipe!

The Double Header aims to print two books: My Monster Boyfriend and Yes, Roya.

Smut Peddler Presents: My Monster Boyfriend is an Iron Circus first: a FULL-COLOR anthology full of things that go bump in the night (and the folks they’re bumpin’!), with stories by Gail Simone, Jess Fink, and EK Weaver.

And Yes, Roya is a another first for ICC: a smutty graphic novel about a femdom threesome in 60s California. (Think Mad Men, but with palm trees and one really hardcore lady.)

Attached is a 10-page preview of A My Monster Boyfriend story by Noora Heikkilä, “A Winged Man Flew Into the Shed.” Just one of the stories ICC will be publishing!

The Double Header already 200% funded, but in a move ICC created, funds over goal go back to the artists, bumping up page rates at $10,000 intervals! So, more backers means better pay for everyone! Pretty important, given comics’ environment of chronically underpaid talent.
