Hey again, everybody! Our crowdfund for The Smut Peddler Double Header ends in just a few hours, and we want to make sure everyone has one last chance to lock in the add-ons we hit with our stretch goals: hardcovers of Smut Peddler X, and posters of the Smut Peddler X cover, both signed and unsigned!

Do either of these sound good to you? Keep reading!

To secure a 24" x 36" poster of the cover of Smut Peddler X by Valve concept artist Claire Hummel, select from one of the two options below!




And to upgrade your copy of Smut Peddler X to a hardcover, click below! A note: This will only be valid if you are already backing at a level that includes a print copy of Smut Peddler X!



And with that... thank you, everyone. As we close in on our final minutes on Backerkit, we're overjoyed with your support. This project is the biggest Smut Peddler we've ever run, and we're just so grateful! 

We'll be in touch after the project closes, later this week, with a roadmap and further details!

See you then!

Hey again, everyone! Spike again!

Second stretch goal, DOWN! We're at $150,000! That means you can now upgrade your Smut Peddler X from a paperback to a hardcover; a case-wrapped volume with a dust jacket!

Click below to upgrade your pre-order of Smut Peddler X! Please note: You must already be backing this project at a level where you have pre-ordered a copy of Smut Peddler X to enable this option!


  • This upgrade is for Smut Peddler X only; there will be no hardcover editions of My Monster Girlfriend.

  • Only backers who pay the extra $15 will receive a hardcover edition of Smut Peddler X! Backers who do not choose to upgrade their pledge will receive paperback editions. Backers who only purchased My Monster Girlfriend,  or only ebook editions of either title, are not eligible.


We only print hardcovers of any title in very limited numbers! So if you have your heart set on a deluxe edition of Smut Peddler X, don't delay! upgrade your pledge and gurantee yourself a copy!

And remember: We're also offering signed and unsigned copies of the poster of the cover of Smut Peddler X, as painted by Valve concept artist Claire Hummel! You can add those here!




We have just over a week left here on Backerkit, and lots of stretch goals left to go! Please, folks, continue spreading the word, so we can finish strong!

Hey again, everyone! Happy Monday, Spike here!

WE DID IT! We hit our first major stretch goal of $135,000! A limited run of Claire Hummel's cover for Smut Peddler X as a 24" x 36" poster, signed and unsigned, has been UNLOCKED!

IMPORTANT IMPORTANT IMPORTANT: We have, once again, updated the Project FAQ! Please read it here before asking any questions you might have! Thank you!

Good morning, everyone! Spike here, again!

Well... THAT poll is pretty darn decisive, eh? It'll run for the duration for the project, but we've already begun work on getting the winning design finalized and struck! Thank you for your input, everyone!

In other news... it's time to announce our STRETCH GOALS.


Folks, thank you so much for this first week of the all-new Smut Peddler Double Header. We want to spread your love, support and largess around, AND reward you for helping our creators directly! With that in mind, here's what we came up with.


$135,000 - A POSTER OF THE SMUT PEDDLER X COVER!

Drawn by renowned illustrator and Valve concept artist Claire Hummel, we will created a limited edition run of 24" x 36" posters available as add-ons to this project, some of which will be signed by the artist herself!


$150,000 - A SMUT PEDDLER X HARDCOVER!

Smut Peddler X will get a VERY limited edition hardcover run, available as add-ons to this project!
Hardcovers of comics don't move very well after the initial crowdfund, in our experience, so don't expect us to make very many of these!


$175,000 - A SURPRISE BONUS for our OG Smut Peddler 2012 creators!

That's right! A nice li'l kickback for the ones who made it all possible!
Contributors to the very first Smut Peddler, the brand that dumped a gallon of jet fuel into the Iron Circus' engines and made this all possible, will get a cut of the total funding and, should they want them, copies of the new edition!


$200,000 - PINS FOR ALL FIRST-DAY BACKERS!

You asked! We answered! And this one's on us, kinda! In the flurry of preparation for our very first Backerkit project, we forgot to make it 100% clear that only first-day PHYSICAL orders would get the exclusive first-day-backers-only pin. So, let's get that pin to everyone who backed on the first day, including folks who just bought ebooks! This stretch goal will cover the cost of striking the extra pins, and mailing them to digital backers!


$250,000 - A Satyr and Bultungin story, written and drawn by C. Spike Trotman, is included in My Monster Girlfriend!

Satyr is a satyr. Bultungin is a bultungin (east-African folkloric werehyena). They date. She's kind of a little sadistic, and kind of a LOT dangerous. He's... a little too into it.

RELATIONSHIP GOALS.

If The Double Header meets this OUTRAGEOUS goal, I will make a smutty little Satyr and Bultungin story. :)

And to close it out, the REQUIRED JOKE TIER:

If this project hits $500,000, I'll fly every single willing Smut Peddler: My Monster Girlfriend contributor out to New York City, treat them to a nice dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant, put them up in a nice hotel, buy My Monster Girlfriend billboard time in Times Square, and do a group photo shoot. TEST ME.

And that'll do it, folks! Apologies this update came a day later than planned, but the quotes were slow to come in, and we couldn't do pricing without them!

Tomorrow is my birthday, by the way. Thank you for your support on Iron Circus' very first Backerkit crowdfund, it's the most amazing present I could have ever asked for. <3

IMPORTANT IMPORTANT IMPORTANT: We have updated the Project FAQ! Please read it here before asking any questions you might have! Thank you!

Hey again, everybody! Spike here again, and I've got the poll ready for our day-one-backer pin designs!

Working with our good friends at True Metal Works, we plan to strike these in matte grey metal, with this die-cast design in the back:



But we have two design possibilities for the front, and we need your input to decide on which we should go for!


DESIGN ONE: DINAH MIGHT!

Dinah is Smut Peddler's mascot; a beautiful burlesque dancer that has graced the cover of multiple volumes, and featured in the emblem we put on all of our erotica as part of the Smut Peddler seal o' quality. This is a rough sketch by Amanda Lafrenais, and will be tightened up before being sent to be cast!



DESIGN TWO: HOORAY FOR SMUT!

The official Smut Peddler slogan since day one! A simpler design favored by folks who love their clean lines and statement buttons.


So... which one do you like best?

Please vote on thus update, and let us know! Thank you again for our amazing start, folks!

NEXT UPDATE: THE STRETCH GOALS. STAY TUNED!

Hi, everyone! Spike, Founder of Iron Circus Comics here.

And... wow.

Just WOW.

What else is there to say? I'm dang near speechless. Thank you, everyone. We're totally, completely, utterly blown away by this outpouring of excitement and support for Smut Peddler X and My Monster Girlfriend. And I've been crowdfunding since before there was even a Kickstarter! (Yep. Paypal pre-orders. I don't recommend it!) It takes a LOT to surprise me!

Thank you so much to our returning, ride-or-die backers, folks who have been with us from the beginning! And thank you to our new backers, folks funding us for the very first time. We have so much neat stuff to show you! You're gonna like it here.

Our Creators!

The brand-new Smut Peddler Double Header is nearly 500% funded, and our creators' page rates are nearly doubled. That's incredible, especially considering the fact that there is no ceiling on how much our creators can earn! Thank you for this, folks. Words can't express!

Our FAQ!

We've started filling in the project FAQ for The Smut Peddler Double Header, and encourage you to check it out! The link is above the fold on the project main page, just under the field with the project video.

Our Pin!

This is it: What everyone's been asking about! Our exclusive, day-one-backers-only pin!

Tomorrow, we'll present multiple pin designs for you folks to vote on. The winning pin will be put into production, and sent out to everyone who pledged for a hard copy of either one of our Smut Peddler titles (or both!) on the first day we funded. We're excited to see what makes the cut!

That's it for now, I think! Please, keep spreading the word about Smut Peddler X and My Monster Girlfriend! Most press and media outlets we contacted for promo refuse to touch this kind of subject matter with a ten-foot pole, so word-of-mouth is going to be our lifeline. And thank you again!
