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.

And stay tuned for more announcements soon!

TITLE OF THE WEEK: Tim’rous Beastie, the next Iron Circus Comics anthology project!
That’s right, folks. Get t’brainstorming, because we start taking submissions December 1st. Check the official tumblr for more information!
Conceived of and edited by ICC alum @littlefroggies, Tim’rous Beastie is a collection for those of us who grew up on Redwall, Watership Down and other sagas of tiny critters on thrilling adventures in a big and dangerous world. But this time, Iron Circus is in charge. So expect the strange and amazing.
Fascinated? Curious? Wanna submit something? The Tim’rous Beastie tumblr has all details! But if you still have questions after reading? Direct any inquiries directly to that tumblr’s Ask box, where we’ll be sure to see them; it’ll help us build the FAQ.
And expect the invitee list soon!
Thanks for reading, everybody! Amanda and I are excited to see what you come up with!
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 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.

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.
