Erstwhile sample art & rewards images

1 comment

We have added even better sample art to the Erstwhile kickstarter. There are now comic pages to sample from each of the five stories included in the book. You may even view larger samples at the ErstwhileTales.com website.

We have also added images for the stand-along comics included in the $30 and $50 pledges!
