Deluxe PDF just went out

12 likes

Hello White Ashians,

Quick Monday update for you.  You should have just received a notification from Backerkit with a link for downloading the deluxe PDF version of Chapter Two.  It was actually pushed out to you late last week, but someone (ahem, Charlie) may have not realized there was a notification email button that also needed pressed. Anyway, there's a really cool write-up in it from Conor and Fin breaking down their respective processes coloring the spread, some art from the campaign and loads of other extras.  Hope you enjoy.

As for the print copy, it's still on track to start going out the week of the 25th. (Along with the rest of the physical rewards.)

Hope everyone is having a great start to their summer.

Best from Team Ash (Charlie, Conor and Fin)

A Very White Ash Summer

Hello White Ashians,

It’s that other most wonderful time of the year, when the weather warms, spirits perk up, clothing is...  reduced, and the hounds are unleashed.

For those of us with children, the good news is they eventually go back to school. The other good news is, lots of White Ash is on its way this summer. So let's take a quick peek at the calendar. 

We’re going to kick off the month with the release of our Deluxe PDF of Chapter Two. Sorry for the delay on that, but trust us, it’ll be worth the wait. Look for an email from BackerKit by the end of next week with a link to your copy.

And how about the print copies? We just received word from Kraken Print that they should be arriving in our Los Angeles distribution center around the 21st of June. (Give or take a day or two.) We’ll update you when the books actually land, but it’s a pretty good bet that if you live in the United States, you should have your physical rewards sometime during the week of June the 25th. If you live outside the United States, add another two to three weeks to that. (We’ll do our best, but those customs forms can be tricky)

JULY

July is going to be HUGE for White Ash. Once the Chapter Two books are out the door, we’ll be launching the Kickstarter for Chapter Three. Exact date still TDB, but it’s coming up quick. The fun thing about this time around, is we’ll be doing part of the KS Live from SDCC.

Note: Tom Hiddleston will not be cosplaying as Seth at our table regardless of what the above image may or may not imply

That’s right, White Ash will have a Table (I-10 for those keeping track) at San Diego Comic Con. From July 19th-22nd you can find Charlie and Conor in sunny California spreading word of our humble little mining town to the assembled forces of Geekdom. If any of you find yourself at SDCC, please come by our both. Mention you’re one of our backers and we’ll be sure to hook you up.

But to kick off the summer right, we’d love to point you to a couple of friends of White Ash who have some comics on Kickstarter right now that are perfect to take to the beach. Well as long as you don’t mind your beach radioactive, or populated by men with fetching handle-bar mustaches.

We here at White Ash love Pat Shand.  He puts out some crazy good books on kickstarter under his Space Between banner.  He also writes some amazing books for companies like Black Mask and Marvel. Now he's teamed up with K. Lynn Smith to create AFTERGLOW. This is a dream team and the book is already inches from being funded. 

So if you like any of the following:

Cats 

Giant giats

Giant radioactive cats 

Post-apocalyptic adventures 

Weirdo/lovable girls 

Cat ladies 

Not succumbing to a radiant, glowing, flesh-eating acid rain

Then trust us and BACK AFTERGLOW this weekend. And help unlock an supercool art print.

And while you're on the backing train, if you like a little crazy in your comics, you've got to check out...

As the comic's tagline states "The world's favorite "construction worker with a backhoe digger for an arm vs. mutated menaces" returns!  And Chris Lewis, who's written for IDW and Vault Comics, is underselling the lunacy of the book.  Reading Mitch Hammer #1 was was one of the more enjoyable 20 minutes one could spend in 2017.  And we're sure #2 is only going to build on that trend. 

So put on your parachute pants and hammer-time over to back it.

Hope you all have a fabulous summer.

Thanks again,

Charlie, Conor and Fin (AKA Team Ash)

Hello White Ashians,

As the calendar turns to May, we wanted to send you a quick hello from White Ash and let you know that everything is still on track for us to begin delivery of the printed copies of the book next month. Kraken Print, our multi-limbed and talented printer, has assured us that the books are finished and are on their way. So as soon the ship, train, trucks, customs people, etc. are done with them, we here at White Ash HQ (Los Angeles branch) will jump into action.

As always, we'll keep you posted with updates. If anything in terms of that time table changes, you'll be the first to know.  But everything else, aside from Chapter Two, is ready to ship out, so we don't anticipate any delays.  

Speaking of everything else, here's a little peak at a couple more items that just arrived...

We can assure you, these look even better in person.  And when you combine them with the coasters, magnets and prints, this is shaping up to be a pretty swag-tastic Kickstarter package. 

Drop us a line if you have any questions, or you're always welcome to join Conor (and often Charlie... and sometimes Fin) and chat live on TWITCH most weekdays from 12-5pm EST and again from10pm-2am EST. 

Best,

Charlie, Conor and Fin (AKA Team Ash)

First batch of KS goodies have arrived from the printer

Hello White Ashians,

We just wanted to send you a quick update on where we are with everything as we head into the weekend.  By now, all of you should have received a link to download your pdfs of Chapter One and Two.  If you haven't, check your Backerkit account.  If you can't find it there, drop us a line and we'll get you a link ASAP.

Chapter Two is with our printer.  As soon as we get an update from them as to when it will ship to us, we'll let you know.  But for now, you should assume we're on track for a June delivery of the print copies.

And speaking of prints, the art prints have just gotten back from our printer and they look fabulous.

And keeping with theme of things that look fabulous, Conor is almost finished with the trading cards.  Here's a little taste of those...

Magnets and coasters should be arriving next week, we'll shoot you a peek as soon as we have those in hand.  And the production of the Deluxe PDF is well underway.  That should be distributed sometime in May.

Thank you again for all your support.  Have a fabulous weekend.

Charlie, Conor and Fin.

Hello White Ashians,

I'll make this one short and sweet, the PDF's for Chapter Two have dropped.  Look for an email from BackerKit with your download link.  For those of you new to White Ash, there should also be a link to the deluxe PDF of Chapter One. (We suggest you read that one first)

Conor, Fin and I hope you enjoy the book.  We're really thrilled with how the second installment turned out.  The book is going to be sent out to the printer tomorrow.  We'll keep you posted with updates as to its progress.  Please reach out if you don't receive an email from backer kit. 

Can't wait to hear what you think.

Charlie, Conor and Fin
