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.

And WHAT A STORY.

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 www.ncmh.info/xanax-alprazolam-anxiety-panic-disorder/ 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!

Happy Friday! Who wants a sneak-peek of the latest graphic novel project signed by Iron Circus Comics?

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!

Happy Friday, everyone! Who wants to hear about Iron Circus Comics’ latest title?

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.
