Rejoice, friends!  Yes, Roya is now available on ComiXology!

Curious to see what the fuss is all about? Want easy access to the smutty GN of the year on a platform you’re familiar with? Looking for some fun, filthy reading? Well, today’s your day!

Yes, Roya is the story of Wylie Kogan, aspiring cartoonist, and his once-in-a-lifetime meeting with his hero, the rich and famous artist Joseph Ahlstrom. The meeting takes an odd turn, though, when Wy discovers- and unthinkingly pilfers- some of his idol’s illicit fetish art. But his acquisition doesn’t go unnoticed, and puts him directly in the sights of Joe’s resolute and imposing wife, Roya.

Yes, Roya is 140-odd pages of impeccably written artists’ intrigue, snappy dialogue, and super-duper hot sex, primarily of the M/F/M variety.

Why not give it a shot?

It’s Friday again! That means I get to announce the newest Iron…

It’s Friday again! That means I get to announce the newest Iron Circus Comics title!

And this time the TITLE OF THE WEEK is Sparks, by Sarah W. Searle!

Set in the late Victorian era, Sparks begins with Patience, a kindhearted country girl, and her introduction into the world of formal service on the grounds of an English country manor. Selfless, dutiful, and just a touch naive, she takes to both her place as a parlor maid and to her new roommate, the bookish and progressive lady’s maid, Esther.

In another time, the two women would have likely kept one another’s company forever in their little attic bedroom, living out their days together in the employ of a Lord. But the world is changing. The age of Empire has brought with it not only plundered wealth, but worldliness and social revolution. Suffragists agitate in the street, idle-rich bohemians challenge sexual mores, and Patience and Esther slowly come to realize the world is wider and full of more adventure and opportunity than they ever imagined… so long as they find the will to seize it.

Currently serialized on Filthy Figments, the internet’s biggest and best collection of woman and NB-made erotic comics, Searle’s Sparks will be collected, remastered, and published by Iron Circus Comics in 2017 as part of the Smut Peddler Presents line of erotic graphic novels! But if ya can’t wait that long? Subscribe to Filthy Figments and start reading it right now.

Thanks for reading, everybody! Don’t forget to follow creator Sarah W. Searle’s tumblr at @swinsea. And keep following us right here! We have MORE ANNOUNCEMENTS coming!

TITLE OF THE WEEK: Meal, by Blue Delliquanti!

The irrepressible Yarrow McMurray is a woman on a mission: A mission to put bugs in your burgers. Worms in your stir-fry. Maggots in your… muesli?

Sure. Why not.

In short, Yarrow eats bugs. And cooks bugs! And loves bugs. Inspired and driven on her quest by short-tempered guiding force and employer Chanda Flores, she won’t rest until everybody else feels the same way, including her skeptical girlfriend Milani Spence.

Written in the spirit of classic food and cooking manga like Drops of God, Cooking Master Boy and Yakitate!! Japan, Blue Delliquanti, author of the critically acclaimed and Lambda Literary Award-nominated O Human Star, plans to bring Meal to ICC and adventurous readers in 2017!

TITLE OF THE WEEK: Crossplay, by Niki Smith!

Another Smut Peddler Presents erotica title, Crossplay is a graphic novel-length complete re-imagining of a much shorter story Niki’s told before, featured on Filthy Figments. Set at an anime con and starring a cast of college kids, it’s 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.

Personally speaking, I’m really excited to see Niki take this on. Fan communities can be so important in more ways than one.

Crossplay will be serialized during its production on Filthy Figments, home of the internet’s premiere collection of erotic comics by women and non-binary cartoonists. Can’t wait for 2017? Subscribe now and read along in real time.

The Great Kickstarter Flip-Flop!

Hey, everybody! Big announcement to make: We’ve had a change to our publishing line-up!

The Smut Peddler Double-Header, originally scheduled for the end of August, turned out to be not-quite-ready for prime time. And, unexpectedly, Sophie Campbell’s Shadoweyes trade is ready for its close-up months and months early. So, they’re switching places!

That means the very first full-color trade paperback collection of Shadoweyes will be Kickstarted at the end of September! And Iron Circus’ first graphic-novel length smut comic, Yes, Roya, drawn by the incomparable ghost green and written by yours truly, will hit Kickstarter in December, along with and the brand new full-color Smut Peddler Presents: My Monster Boyfriend anthology.

Curious about Shadoweyes? Wanna try before you buy? You can read the whole comic here right now! Take a look, and see for yourself why I’m so excited to be Kickstarting this comic!

Join the Iron Circus mailing list to get the exact date of the Kickstarter the second we decide on it, so you can have first pick of the pledge levels… including the Early Bird level, limited to 50 backers and featuring free domestic and reduced international shipping!

Winter 2015: The TJ and Amal omnibus

The TJ and Amal omnibus

In the span of a single day, Amal Chakravarthy calls off his arranged marriage, comes out to his conservative parents, promptly gets disowned, goes on a bender . . . and wakes up the next morning to find TJ—a lanky, dreadlocked vagrant—frying eggs and singing Paul Simon in his kitchen.

TJ claims that the two have made a drunken pact to drive all the way from Berkeley to Providence. As it happens, Amal promised his sister he’d be there for her graduation from Brown University. And TJ, well . . . TJ has his own reasons.

The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal omnibus collects the full 2009-2014 run of E.K. Weaver‘s critically acclaimed road trip romance, with brand new full-color inserts!
