Help Print The Ladybroad Ledger #1!
$572 of $750 goal
**WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING DONATIONS**
We've found a cheaper printer and have gone to print! :) Thank you for helping us print Issue #1! <3
The Ladybroad Ledger is a group of female and nonbinary cartoonists from the Burlington, VT area. Our goal is to produce a FREE twice annual newsprint publication to promote comics and comic art by femme Vermont cartoonists and distribute it throughout the state.
Issue #1 is 12 pages of newsprint goodness with comics by Rachel Lindsay, Julianna Brazill, Laura Martin, Sandy Bartholomew, Bridget Comeau, Susan Norton, Angela Boyle, Kelly Swann, Michelle Sayles, Iona Fox, and Stephanie Zuppo. It also features a color cover by Glynnis Fawkes.
This project was created by Stephanie Zuppo (myself) to feature some of Vermont's incredible cartoonist talent, while also introducing to the general public a wide variety of comic styles and showing that comics are moving away from being a male dominated field.
The money funded through this gofundme will go towards the cost of printing and shipping 2,000 copies of the first issue of The Ladybroad Ledger. Physical copies of the comic will be distributed and available for free throughout the state of Vermont and at comic shows in New England.
The publication will be printed through Park Press and will be available in print form in February.
Funds will need to be raised by January 15th, 2017.
If the full $750 is not raised, I will be paying for the remaining cost of printing out of my own pocket! Ladybroad is happening whether or not we receive the funding.
If over $750 is raised, the additional funds will be used to pay our contributors.
As a thank you for supporting independent comics creators, anyone who contributes money to this project will recieve a downloadable .PDF of the publication when it is finished!
