Crossplay has begun!

Crossplay is my newest, biggest project– a smutty, queer graphic novel, a love letter to all things fandom. It’ll be collected and printed by @ironcircuscomics
as part of the Smut Peddler Presents line of erotic graphic novels, while serializing online at

Home from college for the summer, a group of friends reunite for a whirlwind weekend together at their favorite con… Crossplay is about
discovering your sexuality and gender identity through fandom and
cosplay; using what you love to figure out who you are, and what will
make you happy.
And when you share a passion, feelings begin to stir…

The first nine pages are up now! We’ll have batch updates going up every week or two.




I’ll be at table E1, right next to my pals and fellow @dirtyoldladies @kelmcdonald and @littlefroggies

I’ll have copies of dang near every published Iron Circus Comics book (Including your only chance to buy Yes, Roya and the Smut Peddler 2012 reprint without being a Kickstarter backer for MONTHS), but in LIMITED QUANTITIES. Make sure you show up early to snag the swag y’got your heart set on!

Thanks, everybody! See you there!

Miss Iron Circus Comics’ last Kickstarter? Not to worry. PDFs of both My Monster Boyfriend and Yes, Roya are now available in the Iron Circus shop!

Yes, Roya, set in 1960s California, written by @spikedrewthis, drawn by @ghostgreen, and with a cover by @kinomatika, Tells the story of Wylie Kogan. An aspiring artist, a fawning fan letter grants him access to his cartoonist hero, the wealthy and celebrated Joseph Ahlstrom, Wy’s quick to take advantage of a proffered portfolio review … but winds up learning more than he ever wanted to about Joe when he stumbles across some of his idol’s illicit fetish art. His hasty, ill-considered theft of a drawing triggers a series of events he never planned on … most of which involve Joseph’s imposing and resolute partner, Roya.

A m/f/m femdom story, Yes, Roya is ICC’s FIRST (but definitely not last!) erotic GN!

And My Monster Boyfriend is ICC first themed erotic comics anthology! 220 pages of cute monster boys! Robots, demons, aliens and spirits, with their human and not-so-human lovers, in ten incredible stories by comics’ best and brightest.

Grab one, the other or both now, at the ICC store!

Nope, it’s not Friday. But ICC’s got a new title for you ANYWAY.

But then, well, maybe not…?

Iris & Angel isn’t exactly new; the first chapter’s already been written by myself, drawn by @littlefroggies, and posted on Slipshine, the subscription adult comics site. But Slipshine came with certain restrictions; monthly quotas, length limits, and the expectation of sex every fifteen pages, to name a few. And while that works for a lot of comics, it wasn’t working for I&A.

So, Amanda and I are trying something new.

Iris & Angel is restarting from scratch, and will be released chapter-by-chapter on ComiXology and in the Iron Circus Comics online store!

This is a new approach for us, and we’re excited to see where it might lead. We’re test-driving a smaller, cheaper, more incremental approach to our comics; inexpensive “issues” of I&A with a nice, low bar for entry for the curious and the freedom to tell the story as we like.


Iris Moore is a victim of her own success; her small soap-making business has taken off like a shot, but she’s found herself floundering with the financials. With April 15th approaching and her paperwork more hopelessly scrambled than ever, she finally accepts the inevitable: she needs professional help. But where to start?

A fetish message-board on the internet, of course.

Iris’ pervy roommate Tate talks her into answering the weirdest personal ad ever posted; a cross-dressing accountant offering tax prep. And what begins as a hands-off, close-encounter with kink unexpectedly evolves into something much deeper when Iris and Angel discover desires they never anticipated; a deep attraction to both one another, and the new and unfamiliar world of fetish culture itself.

Iris & Angel! Coming this winter, from Iron Circus Comics! 😀

TITLE OF THE WEEK: Minus, by Lisa Naffziger!Yup, it’s Friday….

TITLE OF THE WEEK: Minus, by Lisa Naffziger!

Yup, it’s Friday. And you know what that means! A brand new title from Iron Circus Comics!

Scheduled to debut in 2018-19, Minus is the story of Beck Beveroth, the sheltered, home-schooled daughter of the over-protective Gil. Raised in the isolation of her father’s remote homestead, Beck’s on the edge of independence for the first time ever; she’s been accepted for enrollment at an out-of-state college! Excited and apprehensive, she decides to road-trip with Dad to campus move-in day… but their plans go violently off-course when Beck hears gunfire while in the restroom at a gas station pit-stop.

When she finally emerges from hiding, her father and their car are gone… and she’s the only person left alive.

Minus is a YA-and-up adventure and mystery story unlike anything Iron Circus has ever published before. I’m really looking forward to it, and I hope you are too.

Follow the creator here on tumblr at @rugops, and check out Lisa’s personal site here.

And stay tuned for more announcements soon!

Thanks, everybody!
