The Books Are Here/Shipping Has Begun

23 likes

Hello White Ashians,

Good news, Kraken got the comics to us even quicker than promised and they look glorious.

As such, we’ve gotten a jump on fulfillment. As of this update, just over 125 packages have already been mailed. A lucky few of you might even get your books today.

Here’s a little snapshot of the process.

Rest assured, we’ll be working overtime to get out the remaining 300+ packages ASAP. We’re going to stand by our previous timeline…

“If you live in the United States, most of you should receive your Chapter Three rewards within the next 2-3 weeks. If you outside the United States, you should receive your rewards by the end of October.”

…but rather than this being a goal we’re working to achieve, this is a standard we now comfortably expect to meet/ exceed.

Because after a couple of days of shipping, we know what numbers are viable. We tested to reach a conclusion.  That's science.  And speaking of Science...

Charlie here. Waaaaay back when White Ash was just a glimmer in my eye, I reached out to Jason Inman to talk Kickstarters.  Jason and his wife Ashley Victoria Robinson had just launched the mega-hit Jupiter Jet which they went on to publish though Action Lab. Well, they're back with SCIENCE! 

This book is already funded, in fact there are only seven days left to get in on the fun. And trust me,  if you've read any of Jason or Victoria's other work before at DC, IDW, Top Cow, etc, you know that fun is a huge part of what they're about.  That and amazing comics. So draw your own conclusions and check them out.

Anyway, we here at White Ash are thrilled to finally be able to share our fun with you.  Keep your eyes on your mailboxes and hopefully, they'll be full sooner than later.  We'll be back with another shipping update next week.  Till then...

Thank you,

Charlie, Conor and Fin

Shipping Update

Hello White Ashians,

Good news,

We’ve just gotten word from our printing partners at Kraken. The books have been printed and are being packed for transport now. Thanks to the wonders of modern aviation, they should be arriving at our Los Angels HQ early next week. Which mean by Friday, the first packages should start arriving at their destination (Yep, in six days).  Kraken worked hard with us to make sure we could get these books out to you as quickly as possible. And we’re going to do our best to hold up our end. We’ll keep you posted as the fulfillment process unfolds, but here’s a rough timeline:

If you live in the United States, most of you should receive your Chapter Three rewards within the next 2-3 weeks.

If you outside the United States, you should receive your rewards by the end of October.

We’ll do our best to beat both of those timelines, but for now, that’s the goal.

For our digital backers, don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten we still owe you a couple of digital rewards. To that end, if you check your Backerkit email, we’ve just released the deluxe PDF’s for Chapter One and Chapter Two. The Deluxe PDF for Chapter Three is still in progress. Hopefully that will be done in a couple of weeks.

But here’s something that’s going to be done in a couple of hours. Charlie here. While at SDCC, Conor and I met Enrica Jang, writer of the paranormal mystery series, Crossing. Enrica’s back on kickstarter with a really cool concept that has just 32 hours left to get funded. 

A Soul Divided/ Caged in Flesh: A Jekyll & Hyde Anthology.

A double-sided comic anthology inspired by "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde." One side Jekyll, the other side Hyde. And you get to choose which team you want to be a part of." It’s a really interesting concept and well worth checking out.

And while on Kickstarter, I also suggest taking a Road Trip to Hell with Nicole D’Andria.

 Nicole, who’s been working at Action Lab for the last couple of years, knows how to put a comic together. And the The Devil is in the Detail is an amazing-looking debut book.

We'll be back next week with some more updates on shipping and some pictures of the books. 

Thanks again, we couldn't do any of this without you.

All the very best from Team Ash,

Charlie, Conor and Fin

Digital Art is on its way

16 likes

Hello White Ashians,

Any minute now, you should be receiving an email from Backerkit with links to a bunch of digital White Ash artwork that you can download and enjoy.  For our Digital-Only backers, these are your copies of what the Physical Reward backers will be getting.  For our Physical Backers, consider these a little preview of what's to come.  

As always, if (after a couple of hours) you don't see that email from Backerkit, check your junk mail.  And if it's not in your junk mail, feel free to reach out to us on Kickstarter. Well get you sorted.

And if you do like what you see, and find yourself Jonesing for a bit more of Conor's amazing artwork, we can also help you out there too.  Because Conor's just lent his talents to another amazing project that's currently on Kickstarter, doing an exclusive variant cover for GANGSTER ASS BARISTA

Charlie here. If you've been part of our previous campaigns, you'll know I'm a huge fan of Pat Shand (AKA the hardest working writer in comics). From Black Mask to Marvel, to... you name it, he's always busy. But his Destiny NY series on Kickstarter is probably my favorite. G.A. Barista is a spin-off of Destiny and it didn't take Conor's cover to convince me to be all in.  Comedy, Crime, Coffee and Pat, you're not going to find a better book on KS or probably in the shops.  

Anyway, we'll be back in a week or so with another update on our progress and your rewards.  Everything is still on schedule and fingers crossed, it will stay that way.

Thanks again, we couldn't do any of this without you.

All the very best from Team Ash,

Charlie, Conor and Fin 

Kickstarter rewards are starting to roll in from the printer

Hello White Ashians,

Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend.  Just wanted to send out a quick update to keep you abreast of our progress.  At this point, all of our rewards (aside from the comics) have been printed and now we're just waiting for them to show up at White Ash HQ.  The first batch actually arrived this morning, so we'd thought we'd share a little glimpse of new set of White Ash trading cards.

As for the comics, they're still currently on track to reach us in early October (and we'll start shipping soon after that).  We'll keep you updated if anything changes. 

The SDCC Variants have begun shipping. Right now, we're just mailing the ones that are part of packages, like the Variant Trio tier, that have two shipping windows.  But as we're scheduled to have all our rewards in from the printer by the end of next week, the rest of the SDCC Variants should in the mail the following week. 

We'll be back early next week with more digital rewards and pictures of physical rewards. But for now, I do want to take a moment to point you to a project that's on kickstarter for 4 more days that still needs a little help to get across the finish line -- Wolverton, Thief of Impossible Objects

Charlie here. I loved the first book that Michael Stark and Terrell Garrett created.  It had/has that Thomas Crown Affair vibe, but set in the world of the occult. I'm thrilled they're back with their second installment and I hope you'll join me in checking out where the tale of the Gentleman Thief goes. 

Thanks again everyone.  We couldn't do any of this without you.

All the very best,

Charlie, Conor and Fin.

PDF's are out

26 likes

Hello White Ashians,

Look for a notification from Backerkit, we've just distributed the PDF for White Ash: Chapter Three!!!

If you pledged at a digital or print catch-up tier, you'll also be notified about PDFs for Chapter One and Two.  If you didn't receive a notification from Backerkit, you can also find the download links directly in your Backerkit account. 

If you have any problems accessing that, hit us up with a message and we'll sort you out.

Going forward...

Next week, we'll get out some more digital content for you -- the Funeral Invite, The SDCC variant cover print, the Lillian's Lament print, etc., basically all of the digital rewards from the campaign with the exception of the Deluxe PDF  (Because those take time to do right). Look for the Deluxe PDF for Chapter Three towards the end of September. 

As for the Print Copies, the SDCC Variants will begin going out in the next couple of weeks, just as soon as the assorted rewards return from the printers.  The rest of the books (with the Funeral cover) should begin shipping out in early October.  We haven't gotten a firm timeline from the printer yet.  But as soon as we do, we'll pass it on to you.

Thanks again for all your support and enthusiasm.  Conor, Fin and I couldn't ask for a better group of fans.

All the very holiday weekend best from White Ash,

Charlie, Conor and Fin.
