Dirty Diamonds

Dirty Diamonds is an award-winning all-girl comic anthology edited and published by cartoonists Kelly Phillips & Claire Folkman.

Founded in 2011 out of Philadelphia, the goal of Dirty Diamonds has been to give women and femme comics creators a dedicated outlet for telling their stories, and hundreds of artists from around the world have contributed their semi-autobiographical works, highlighting both their talents and unique experiences across 10 volumes. Each issue features comics around a central theme, including: Beauty, Imagination, Being, Sex, and Death.

Dirty Diamonds has been awarded the Philly Geek Award for Comic Creators of the Year (2015) and the DiNKy Award for Outstanding Anthology (2017). All volumes of Dirty Diamonds are also featured in the permanent comics collection at the Library of Congress.

The tenth installment of Dirty Diamonds represented the final installment of the original all-girl comic anthology series. The future of Dirty Diamonds is in the making! dirtydiamonds.net | @dirtydiamondsyo
