Iron Circus Crowdfunds a Smut Peddler Double Header: The Brand-New SMUT PEDDLER PRESENTS: MY MONSTER GIRLFRIEND and The Deluxe Reprint SMUT PEDDLER X: TEN YEARS OF IMPECCABLE PORNOGLIFICS

Two Collections of Classy Porn for Classy Ladies and Folks of Distinguished Taste!

(November 7, 2022) Edited by women, made for everyone, erotica anthology Smut Peddler was first crowdfunded by independent publisher Iron Circus back in 2012 and again in 2014. Now ten years later, Iron Circus is crowdfunding a double-header with both a brand new and even bolder Smut Peddler and a deluxe tenth anniversary edition of the original 2012 Smut Peddler. Smut Peddler Presents: My Monster Girlfriend is the long-awaited companion to Iron Circus’ first full-color anthology project, My Monster Boyfriend, and features almost 300 pages of new stories, while Smut Peddler X: Ten Years of Impeccable Pornoglifics brings back the original Smut Peddler from 2012—featuring all the groundbreaking stories from the original anthology, as well as tons of extras including a foreword from Stoya, short essays from the original editors, and hidden treasures from the archives, all wrapped in a brand-new cover by superstar artist Claire Hummel. The Smut Peddler Double Header is crowdfunding now on BackerKit.

Smut Peddler Presents: My Monster Girlfriend includes brand-new stories such as:

  • “Trash Mob Romance” by AnderJak
  • “MonstHER Under the Bed” by Bont and Wes Brooke
  • “Feather” by Kanesha C. Bryant
  • “Forest Wedding” by Otava Heikkila

The Smut Peddler series continuously sets the bar for beautifully drawn and masterfully written comics erotica. It puts the “graphic” back in graphic novel with gorgeous, accomplished, full-color artwork in different styles that tell stories too wild for any other collection. Iron Circus Comics prides itself on showcasing a wide array of humanity across body types, races, genders, kinks, and sexual orientations, with plenty of #OwnVoices work. Their titles include loads of queer content by queer creators (a noted rarity in erotica) that ensures a tenderness and sensitivity so difficult to find in sexy comics. Now in its seventh volume, the Smut Peddler series has been delivering top-drawer erotic comics since its crowdfunding debut in 2012. Fans of literate smut know to look for the Smut Peddler seal of approval for sex-positive, consent-driven erotica with an emphasis on strong characters and storytelling.

About the Publisher

C. Spike Trotman was born in DC, raised in MD, and lives in IL. An artist and writer, she founded Iron Circus Comics in 2007, which has since grown to become the region’s largest comics publisher. Her notable work includes the webcomic “Templar, Arizona,” the Smut Peddler series of erotic comic anthologies, and Poorcraft, a graphic novel guide to frugal living. A Kickstarter early adopter, she pioneered the widely-adopted bonus model that’s since completely reshaped the pay system of the small press, jump-starting the current renaissance of alt-comics anthologies. Iron Circus is also the first comics publisher of note to fully incorporate crowdfunding into its business model, inventing one of the single most effective uses of new media in comics publishing today.
