DIRTY DIAMONDS #8: Sex is now LIVE on Kickstarter until June 30th!

We asked female comic creators to tell us their thoughts behind the act of sex, and they delivered! Their stories are personal, powerful, real, raw, hilarious, ridiculous, and stunningly smart. Too often women are told how they should feel about their sexuality and what they should do with their bodies, and now more than ever we need women telling the world how they perceive, experience, and feel about sex!

Dirty Diamonds is an award-winning all-girl comic anthology that features the semi-autobiographical work of female comic creators from around the world. Each books focuses on a central theme, and for our eighth installment we've gathered mature comics from over 65 creators and artists from 10 different countries about sex!

The Kickstarter campaign aims to raise $14,000 to pay and support all of the women in the book, fund the publication costs, and get an enormous range of intelligent and important comics by women into as many hands as possible.


The Kickstarter ends on June 30th! Help us spread the word and consider grabbing a copy of the book for yourself, along with some great other rewards!

 


DIRTY DIAMONDS #8 is open for submissions!

We're looking for comic proposals about Sex. There are many comic anthologies that have fantastically handled the realm of smut, so we're looking to do something a little different. We are looking for comics that represent "the thoughts behind the act."

Now more than ever, we need women talking about what sex means to us, rather than being told what's okay to be done to us. Send us your ideas AND help us spread the word! (And yes, there will be a Kickstarter to support the book coming in June.) All of the guidelines and the submission form are available on our Submit! page, so check out the details and send us your comic proposals!


Proposals are due by midnight on February 28th, 2017!

 


DIRTY DIAMONDS #7 is open for submissions!

For this issue, we're accepting proposals for your comic submissions. All of the guidelines and the submission form are available on our Submit! page, so check out the details and send us your ideas!


Proposals are due March 1st, 2016!

 


It's finally time... the Kickstarter campaign to fund the publication of DIRTY DIAMONDS #6: Beauty has launched! From feelings about bodies and hair, to surgery scars and extra nipples, to gut bacteria and gargoyles, this anthology features over 50 comics from women around the world telling stories about what "beauty" means to them.

Please consider backing this project or helping to spread the word so we can make this amazing book a reality, AND so we can pay each of the contributors in the book! Actively supporting women making comics, what more could you want!
