Dirty Diamonds debut and release party!

It's finally here! Volume One of the Philly-based all-girl comics anthology Dirty Diamonds!

Dirty Diamonds features four stories by local Philadelphia artists about experiences with alcohol. Read about our triumphs and pitfalls with everyone's favorite vice.

Our comic will be debuting this weekend, August 14th, at the Philly Alternative Comic Con at The Rotunda (40th & Walnut)! Doors open at noon and close at 7pm. All four of the anthology's inaugural contributors will be tabling at PACC, so come out to grab a copy of the anthology, see us, and see what else we have to offer!

Also, immediately following and right around the corner from PACC, we will be holding the Dirty Diamonds release party! It will be held at Smokey Joe's and will feature a raffle full of unique and silly prizes. Buy a copy of the anthology at PACC or the after-party and you'll be entered to win something! Our flyer is below:
