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! 😀
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.
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.
