— An all-girl comic anthology embracing, examining, challenging, and celebrating what beauty is all about. —


BEAUTY /ˈbyo͞odē/ (n.): the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit.


Dirty Diamonds, an all-girl comic anthology that features “semi-autobiographical” work from female comic creators from around the world, focusing on a single theme for each issue.

Kelly & Claire, the editors of Dirty Diamonds, released the above definition of BEAUTY when they announced a ‘call for submissions’ for the sixth issue of their award winning anthology, along with one instruction:

“Run with it.”

And boy, those cartoonists did! From bodies and hair, to surgery scars and extra nipples, to  gargoyles and gut bacteria, this book is bursting with incredible comics by amazing women.

Coming off a successful Kickstarter, Dirty Diamonds #6: BEAUTY will make its comic show debut at SPX2015!!
