Gallery: The Strumpet, a transatlantic Comix Marvel
The Strumpet, the transatlantic ladies' comic I edit when I'm not getting crafty, is heading towards issue 2. And so Editor Lauren asked me to introduce you to some of the ladies as we get ready for a gala launch this fall.
When Jeremy Day and I founded the Strumpet, it was out of a sense that all of our comics friends - British and American alike - would really like one another if they could only meet! Plus, we wanted to make some of our favorite creators - who are a bit shy! - better known.
Issue 1 was a big success - we distributed it via Kickstarter, and threw ourselves a big party. It just goes to show you - even the craziest DIY idea can be a lot of fun if you approach it in the right spirit! I'll be back soon with all my favorite crowdfunding tips.
While Issue 2 is being created you lucky folks can check out this sweet sampler Crafty Crafty gallery, with just a few of the wonderful artists we showcased.
Sneak peeks at Issue 2 can be seen over at The Strumpet website.
