Exclusive: Get a look at The Sea in You from Iron Circus Comics

Crowdfunding pioneer C. Spike Trotman and Iron Circus Comics are helming their latest independent crowdfunding campaign for The Sea in You, a whimsical dark fantasy retelling of The Little Mermaid which will upend everything you thought you knew about magical creatures of the deep. The middle-grade novel from cartoonist Jessi Sharon follows the unlikely friendship between 15-year-old human Corinth and the deadly fanged mermaid Skylla, who mysteriously lets Corinth live after a chance encounter during a beach clean up.

In The Sea In You, Corinth was just trying to clean up the beach; she never expected to meet a mermaid, let alone be nearly drowned by one. But before long Corinth and mermaid Skylla grow closer through a cautious exchange of stories, gifts, jokes, and sign language. Mermaids, it turns out, eat people — but however terrifying Skylla may look, she’s a little younger, a little smaller, and perhaps a little too soft for all that. Bewitched by Corinth and their growing bond, she learns about all the best things in life on land: books, burgers, donuts, and this strange chattering human sound called laughter. But a storm is brewing – both at sea and in Corinth’s increasingly dangerous relationship with her obsessively jealous boyfriend – and a magical bargain may be the only thing that can save her, at a tremendous cost. 

We have an exclusive excerpt from The Sea in You! Check it out below and support the project now! The Sea In You campaign runs until June 30, 2022.

Spike Trotman Launches an Independent Crowdfunding Campaign for The Poorcraft Cookbook

In 2009, Spike Trotman launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for Iron Circus ComicsPoorcraft graphic novel. Over the course of the next twelve years, Spike Trotman and Iron Circus Comics have completely transformed the indie publishing landscape, crowdfunding nearly 2.5 million dollars over the course of more than 30 projects. Now Trotman is poised to shake up the publishing industry again with the launch of Iron Circus Comics’ first-ever completely independently run crowdfunding campaign, which will be hosted on the Iron Circus Comics’ website.

Now funding on the Iron Circus Comics’ website, The Poorcraft Cookbook is a 200+ page masterpiece of recipes, techniques, and buying tips from the cartoonist Nero Villagallos O’Reilly. The all new book features amazing appetizers, entertaining entrees, dazzling desserts, and creative cocktails, all of which are curated for those living frugally. 

A crowdfunding early adopter, Iron Circus Comics pioneered the now widely-adopted bonus model in which creators share in the stretch goal profits. This incentive model completely reshaped the pay system of the small press, jump-starting the current renaissance of alt-comics anthologies. Iron Circus was also the first comics publisher of note to fully incorporate crowdfunding into its business model, inventing one of the single most effective uses of new media in comics publishing today.

Real Hero Shit

WRITER: Kendra Wells
ILLUSTRATORS: Kendra Wells

Adventure awaits! But our heroes are missing some manpower.

People are going missing in a small mountain town. The city guard are blocked from a real investigation. The notorious Underguild has assigned Michel a secret mission: find the missing villagers and bring whatever kidnapped them to justice. Unfortunately for Michel (and his fellow adventurers, Ani and Hocus), they’re short a fighter and need one more party member to foil this plot. Even more unfortunately, the only volunteer seems to be the arrogant, ostentatious, purple playboy Prince Eugene looking to cure his boredom. Covert is not a concept that he’s familiar with, and let’s just say his commitment to the mission is questionable.

Every day is basically spring break for Eugene, but outside the palace walls he crashes into a hard reality: the system that kept him safe in his silk-sheeted bed isn’t particularly concerned with the well-being of anyone who isn’t him. Eugene will have to level-up his awareness if he means to be a real hero, and time is running short!

Stars, Hide Your Fire

WRITER: Kel McDonald
ILLUSTRATORS: Jose Pimienta w/ Kel McDonald

When high school best friends Andrea and Darra stumble upon a fairy trapped in an abandoned factory for decades, their attempts to free her from the magic-subduing “iron” get more and more complicated, especially when they meet Liam, a boy who looks a lot younger than his claimed 100 years and has had a run-in with this creature before. The story takes a few more turns from there as the magic unravels in unexpected ways and our heroes — especially Andrea — will have to come to grips with reality as the first step of the maturity they’re rushing into.
