Short Summary

In February of 2012, an enterprising young comics fan named Hannah found herself wishing for a community where she could talk to other awesome women about shared nerdy loves.  Thus, Ladies' Night at Graham Cracker Comics was born!

Two years later, and we are putting together the second volume of an anthology that features original comics from more than twenty-five contributors.  This volume explores the inescapable theme of death...with a side of corsages and tulle for prom.

What We Need & What You Get

To make all this awesomeness happen, we need some cash on hand to print the book and some amazing original artwork in the form of prints and buttons.  Your contribution to our $2000 goal will help us with:

  • First run print of Volume 2: Death and Prom.
  • Hundreds of buttons and prints to send to our campaign contributors and sell along with the book.
  • Marketing online and in person at events like C2E2 (Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo) and Free Comic Book Day.

Any money left over will contribute to starting up a third (and fourth?) volume of the anthology as well as running our meetings--all of our contributors are volunteering their time and talent.

So check out our awesome perks! Contribute at any level and you get the PDF of the full anthology, but there's a bunch of amazing swag and art that is available.  We're even taking advertisers to help defer the cost of printing.

*Clarificiation: There have been some questions about the $10 perks.  You DO get the printed copy of the anthology at this level, sorry for any confusion!*

STRETCH GOAL:

$3000 will get a reprint of Volume 1: Chicago. We are currently down to a couple dozen copies of Volume 1, and if we reach $3000, everyone that contributes $50 or more will get a copy of Vol2 and a copy of Vol1 (or an extra print, if they prefer).

International supporters PLEASE NOTE: if you need to ship internationally, please add $10 to your contribution.

(If you contribute and your perk includes a button or print, you will be given an option of which of our varient three pieces of original artwork you would like to receive.)

The Impact

We all know that women and other minorities are grossly under-represented in mainstream comics.  The success of Womanthology and similar books prove that this doesn't need to be the case! Whether you exclusively read superhero titles from the Big Two or you're an avid webcomic fan, every fan wants a place to feel like they belong, surrounded by other enthusiasts.  Our goal is to continue our ongoing anthology that features the amazing talents of women who love comics in every form they come in, and the much-needed diversity that they have to offer to the industry.

Let's show the big guys how it's done.

Other Ways You Can Help

If you can't contribute monetarily at this time, please help us spread the word!  We have a Facebook page and a website to tell you more about GCC Ladies' Night and our awesome community of readers.

Regardless, we hope to see you at our next Ladies' Night!
