Hello White Ashians,

It has begun. The comics arrived this weekend. 

We here in White Ash have sprung into action. As of this posting, the first 150 packages have been mailed out. Some of you may even receive them this afternoon. We’re shooting for getting out an additional 50 packages everyday. If we can hold to this schedule, shipping should be done by early next week. And speaking of early next week…

On Monday, March 11th, we’re launching our next Kickstarter. 

We’ll be back on Friday with more details. But for now, hypothetically, if you were interested in a 200 page HARDCOVER of White Ash, collecting the first four issues, plus an ALL-NEW TALE exploring the history of our little mining town AND pin-ups by some amazing artists… you might want to circle that date on your calendar. (Especially if you like getting things on the cheap.)

But while we’re on the subject of hardcovers, there’s an amazing one on Kickstarter right now. A couple of weeks ago, comic book legends Karl Kesel and Tom Grummet launched SECTION ZERO 1959.

Charlie here. I was a day-one backer on this book. Billed as “Jack Kirby does the X-Files” this is a beautiful looking book, that’s not only has a killer story conceit, but it’s filled with pin-ups from some pretty famous artists, including:

Erik Larsen

Steve Rude

Ron Randall

Mike Alred

and…

Conor Hughes. 

That’s right, Conor’s going to be doing a pin-up featuring someone from White Ash, teaming up with Section Zero.  

So if you’re a White Ash completist, or just a fan of Conor, you’re going to want a copy of this book. But don't take my word for it, check out their campaign and I'm sure you'll see it was well worth the click.

Thanks again for all the support. We’ll be back with a shipping update on Friday. Till then, if there’s anything you need, let us know. Our backers are the best and we know that without you, there’d be no White Ash.

Have an amazing week!

All the very best,

Team Ash

Backerkit should have resolved the download issue

Hello White Ashians,

You should receiving an email from BackerKit momentarily.  In it, should be all new links to downloads.  BackerKit was having some server issues, that have been (hopefully) resolved. 

Thank you for your patience,

Team Ash

Wallpapers are still processing

Hi White Ashians,

One of you was kind of enough to point out the BackerKit link to the wallpapers isn't working. It seems BackerKit is still processing the files.  So give them a little time and then try to download again.  If the download isn't working by tonight, we'll reload the files tomorrow.  

Thank you for your patience,

Team Ash

Let's put up that WALLPAPER
3 months ago – Sat, Feb 23, 2019 at 06:52:22 PM

Hello White Ashians,

Just a quick Saturday update for you.  We received word from the printer that the books will now ship NEXT week.  I'm going to trust that this time they're accurate in that assessment. 

We're well prepped here once the books do hit, (backing boards are ready, prints and assorted Kickstarter goodie bundles assembled, etc.) so that will only slightly shift the delivery expectations. 

Domestic Backers — expect to receive your books between March 1st-11th.

International Backers — expect to receive your books sometime in the middle to the end of March (pending how well your country and USPS talk).  

In the meantime, we're distributing some more digital goodies today.  Look for an email from BackerKit with a link to this White Ash wallpaper from Mr. Hughes, in several different resolutions/ ratios.

In other White Ash news, Charlie will be a guest on Comics Academy's Comic Creators Club, on YouTube Live, March 2 at 9pm PACIFIC.  He may be dropping some news about future White Ash plans, kickstarters, etc.  So tune in if you'd like to be in the know.  The show will be co-hosted by the amazing Malissa White (AKA @malissifent)
 

And speaking of the incredibly talented, Ms White, she has a Kickstarter for her dark fantasy comic NIGHTMARE running for another 4 days.

 
 NIGHTMARE has a really cool and creepy conceit. It follows Lucinda "Luz" Padilla as she discovers her recurring nightmares are actually alternative realities.  If you like Stranger Things' special blend of monster fantasy, Fringes' sci-fi conspiracy, and Nightmare on Elm Streets' horrifying dream worlds, you will love this dimension-hopping dark fantasy. So hurry on over to check it out, time is running out to get this across the finish line.

 Another amazing project, with some out of this world creators attached, is COSMIC LOVE.


Inspired by the music of Florence + the Machine, COSMIC LOVE is comic fanthology featuring stories and art by:
 

  • Rachel Perciphone
  • Jennie Wood + Josh Segal
  • Vita Ayala + Kat Taylor
  • Seth Greenwood + Angela Zhang
  • Enrica Jang + Y. Sanders + Jan Velazquez + Mark Mullaney
  • Mario Candelaria + Adam Ferris + Lesley Atlansky + Scott Ewan
  • Zack Rocklin-Waltch + Taren Beatrice

 With a group that talented, it's a book you definitely want to check out.
 

That's all the news from White Ash today.  We'll be back next week with, fingers crossed, the first of those wonderful "off to the post office" pics.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. We couldn't do any of this without you.

All the very best,

Team Ash
