Smut Peddler Kickstarter More Than Doubles Goal, Releases New Levels

The Smut Peddler Kickstarter has, at the time of this writing, more than doubled its goal of $20,000. It’s currently sitting at just over $47,000 with 15 days left to go.

I wrote about this project when it launched, but for new readers, Smut Peddler is a female-friendly porn comic anthology that will pay bonuses to the contributing creators based on eventual funding level — the more the project makes, the more the artists make. Additionally, all the stories in its over 350 pages were fully or partially created by women.

Participants include Jess Fink (Chester 5000XYV), the now Eisner Award-winning Carla Speed McNeil (Finder), EK Weaver (The less than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal), Harvey Award nominee Steve Horton (“Amala’s Blade” for Dark Horse Presents), Erika Moen (DAR!, Bucko), and many, many more! Everyone’s been paid for their work, but more money raised means more bonuses for the artists.

Since the Kickstarter launched, the project has added new pledge levels, with original art packages (pages by Amanda Lafrenais or Kel McDonald) added at $35,000 and original commissions by EK Weaver (sold out), Blue Delliquanti, Rennie Kingsley, and Carla Speed McNeil (sold out) added when it passed $40,000. At $45,000, which was reached last night, an Erika Moen book package was added, but it has since sold out as well. There’s still one special-edition limited messenger bag available, as well as three chances to be drawn on the book’s back cover. There’s also a 10-copy discount package for retailers.

You can still contribute at the Smut Peddler project page. It’s $15 for a PDF copy of the book, or $30 for a paperback. Comics Alliance has interviewed driving force Spike Trotman about her goals for the project, and Spike has herself posted advice on using Kickstarter successfully.
