THE LAST FRONTIER
Hello White Ashians,
Incredible. $19,000. With six days to go Stretch Goal #6 PUT ON THE SPOT is officially UNLOCKED. That means every backer getting our Funeral Cover will now receive a limited edition version, Kickstarter exclusive, Spot Varnish Cover. It’s going to look amazing. What’s also amazing is we get to finally unveil our last stretch goal…
Team Ash talked a lot about ways to upgrade your White Ash experience. Ultimately, we realized that maybe the best thing we could do is get you your rewards quicker. So here it is:
STRETCH GOAL #7, EVERYONE HATES TO WAIT.
Normally our post-campaign printing process involves sending our books overseas and then having them shipped on a boat back to America so we can begin distribution. This takes a while. That’s why we’re promising delivery in November. However, if we can hit $22,000, then we can afford (because it’s pricey) to have enough of the books expedited via airmail. That way, you our backers, will get your books much earlier (October… possibly even mid-September if all goes well on the printing). This is something we’d love to be able to do as we can’t wait to share what we’ve built here in White Ash with you. We’ve smashed all the other stretch goals and we think we can hit this one too. So if you if have friends who like comics who haven’t checked White Ash out yet, please send them the link.
And while you’re checking out kickstarters, we’d like to share three others we think are worth taking a look at.
First up is The Bawdy Tales of Lazlo Cale.
This book launched about the same time as ours and needs a little push to get funded. A stylized, 48 page, sci-fi, art heist comic in the vein of the Thomas Crown Affair? Yes please.
Batting second is The Crowding of Dragos, a comic about Weredragons.
Do you really need more than that? If you do, know that Brian Hawkins who writes the incredible Angelica Reigns series is the wordsmith behind the large scaly beasts. Which is reason alone to go check out the campaign.
And last, but certainly not least by any stretch, is The Wicked Righteous written by Terry Mayo.
Conor and I were lucky enough to table across from Terry for 4 days at SDCC. Terry’s been part of the amazing retro-newsprint movement over at Alterna publishing. But now he’s on Kickstarter for the first time collecting the six issue series in a trade on premium matte paper. He just launched yesterday and the book is already just about funded. There's a reason for that.
Thank you to all the newcomers, we're thrilled you've joined us in our little mining community. And thank you again to all the oldcomers, the newcomers wouldn't have found us without you, you literally put us on the Kickstarter map. And so, we've got six days left of the campaign and a little more room in the town. Let's see how many more people we can pack into White Ash. As you all know "The smaller the town, the bigger the amount they can hike the hotel rates during tourist season."
Best from Team Ash,
Charlie, Conor and Fin
