Want to see previews of the FAB comics from the upcoming issue? It’s your lucky day :)
We’re facing down the last 10% of the funds we need for our Kickstarter campaign with 10 days to go - help us support these wonderful artists and get their comics published! We’ll be debuting the book at TCAF, but you can reserve your copy by pledging to the campaign!
You can check out the full list of contributors on the Kickstarter page.
Ten days, ten percent to go!
Check out some of the fuckin great art from this issue - so many talented ladies making comics about ladies making comics! :)
Eleven days left for our Kickstarter! We’re 90% there! http://kck.st/PTs7jV
We posted our latest project update earlier today with some thoughts on MoCCA Fest (HELLO to all of the amazing people we met!) AND the last of our blooper reels from the Kickstarter video. Check it out! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dirtydiamonds/dirty-diamonds-5-comics/posts
Please share this post to help us make a strong push through this week to reach our goal! Every dollar counts to fund the printing of this issue and putting well-deserved dollars directly into the pockets of the artists involved.
Make sure to say hi if you’ll be at Asbury Park Comicon this weekend (April 12th & 13th) - you can find Kelly & Claire of Dirty Diamonds, along with cover artists Carey Pietsch, at table C-330!
Saying Hi to Kickstarter Creators at MoCCA Arts Fest
Beneath the watchful eye of a giant floating Charlie Brown, we visited the MoCCA Arts Festival this past weekend and caught up with some fantastic project creators. There were great Kickstarter-funded comics to be found all over the festival — above are just a handful of the creators we saw (and managed to take photos of). Pictured:
- Seth Kushner (Schmuck)
- Alec Longstreth (Basewood)
- Alison Wilgus (A Stray in the Woods)
- Kelly, Claire, and Carey (hiding) of Dirty Diamonds
- Zan Christensen of Northwest Press
- Charles & Simon from Dare 2 Draw
- Phil McAndrew (Crying in Front of Your Dog and Other Stories)
- Ben Costa (Pang, The Wandering Shaolin Monk)
- Joyana McDiarmid (Maple Key Comics)
- Nicole Georges (Tell it Like it Tiz!)
- Amy Chu (Girls Night Out)
Great seeing everyone — now go back some projects and read some comics!
Thanks for stopping to say hi to us, Kickstarter :)
Don’t forget - DIRTY DIAMONDS starts its big Spring con season this weekend at MoCCA Fest! :)
Can’t wait!! (Well, can kind of wait… lots of prep that still needs to be done!)
We’re 66% funded as of this morning with over 140 backers! Can we hit $5,000 by the end of the month!? Please reblog to help spread the word and reach our next benchmark! :)
There’s been so much demand for our back issues, so don’t forget to note our expanded $75 tier for the physical copies AND the new addition of the $15 tier that gets you digital copies of issues #1-4!
As often as I can, I will try to bring you short interviews with people who are creating comics and doing everything they can to show their work to the world.
Today I spoke with Kelly Phillips and Claire Folkman, co-editors of DIRTY DIAMONDS, currently funding on Kickstarter.
Claire and I did a quick interview about our Kickstarter campaign and the upcoming issue of DIRTY DIAMONDS! Check it out!
It’s official - the Kickstarter to fund DIRTY DIAMONDS #5 is live! Help us make this amazing book a reality!
I have no way of ever being part of this, but I’m amazed by what Kelly and Claire have done with this anthology, and can’t wait to see where they go from here. Philly cartoonists represent!
