The Strumpets' Calendar Issue: July

Hey everyone, July is here!
Check out this cool illustration Issue 3 co-editor Kripa Joshi did for this month in The Strumpet 2014 calendar!  This calendar was one of the sweet rewards doled out to our Kickstarter supporters in our last campaign.

The Strumpet calendar features some pretty cool new holidays we should really celebrate!

For example, did you know that today is Get to Know a Cartoonist Day?!

Get ready for July 18th, which in Strumpetland is Florence Cestac Day.  It is so named in honor of a truly amazing French cartoonist: Madame Cestac helped to found the incredibly influential Futuropolis publishing house, and was the first ever female President of the Angoul√™me Comics Festival, an enormous honor.   We live for the day that her history of Futuropolis, La Veritable Histoire de Futuropolis, appears in English.

Studio visit from Lisa Rosalie Eisenberg!
