Before her epic, Squarriors, and her interpretation of Anne Rice's Interview With A Vampire: Claudia's Story, Ashley Witter created SCORCH.

SCORCH (written & drawn by Ashley Witter) is the trials and tribulation of an immortal demon living as a human teenage girl called Scorch residing in suburban America. An immortal demon living on Earth? How? Scorch made a deal with a more powerful demon to get where she is. He now lives in her closet as a monster to keep tabs on her to make sure she pays of her debt to him: 10,000 SOULS, plus an exponentially growing interest. Not only is she paying off this large debt, Scorch sets out to discover her true past, prevent the end of the world, and just pass the 10th grade.

Originally posted on Smack Jeeves as a webcomic, Ashley Witter & Devil's Due want to bring SCORCH to print.

With Kickstarter, Ashley Witter & Devil's Due hope to not only bring SCORCH to print as a collected trade paperback, but they really want to give readers that have been following SCORCH since 2007 a chance to receive KS exclusive SCORCH goodies. Of course, all this one-of-a-kind SCORCH awesomeness will only be available during the course of this Kickstarter and will not be available in stores or anywhere else afterwards.

"Squarriors is my epic, but SCORCH is my down-time, my fun, and my love. It was my first series and its fans have kept it alive for more than a decade. Releasing it as a TPB is every bit for them as much as it is for me.
- Ashley Witter

Risks and challenges

Devil's Due has a very good history of delivering its projects and fulfilling rewards, and Ashley Witter has a reputation as a professional. Witter is extremely prolific, having illustrated large graphic novel projects over 150 pages, and several issues of other comics. Not only that, the pages that are being collected into the SCORCH trade paperback are already complete and ready to print.

But we understand that circumstances out of our control may happen such as “Acts of God,” Haleys Comet coming by ahead of schedule and wiping out humanity, etc. It is always possible that printing and manufacturing delays can happen, product can get lost in the shipping process, or human error may cause something to not be sent.

That's why Devil's Due Entertainment has worked so hard to create an iron-clad system and even has its own Kickstarter coordinator to cater to backers. Each person receives a PHYSICAL file folder that backs up our digital, keeping a record of what has been sent, what is still pending, and any problems that may have transpired post-reward-sending.

We're in this for the long haul and see crowdfunding as an important component in the publishing of the future. We want you back for many more campaigns in the future, and that only happens if you're happy with how this one goes!
