Latest Updates from Our Project:

PDF's are out
19 days ago – Tue, Apr 03, 2018 at 11:50:45 PM

Hello White Ashians,

I'll make this one short and sweet, the PDF's for Chapter Two have dropped.  Look for an email from BackerKit with your download link.  For those of you new to White Ash, there should also be a link to the deluxe PDF of Chapter One. (We suggest you read that one first)

Conor, Fin and I hope you enjoy the book.  We're really thrilled with how the second installment turned out.  The book is going to be sent out to the printer tomorrow.  We'll keep you posted with updates as to its progress.  Please reach out if you don't receive an email from backer kit. 

Can't wait to hear what you think.

Charlie, Conor and Fin

Get your survey in by Friday
25 days ago – Thu, Mar 29, 2018 at 01:51:14 AM

Hello White Ashians,

Thank you so much to the 381 of you who have already answered your Backerkit surveys.  For those of you who haven't yet completed them, hi there.  Could you please compete them by the end of the week?  As soon as we have all the surveys in, we can begin the distribution process.  To that end, if you'd like your name included in the backers section of the PDF for Chapter Two, you must get those surveys in by end of day Friday.

We're going to put the PDF of Chapter Two together over the weekend, with the goal of sending it out on Monday or Tuesday. For those backers whose pledge tiers included a PDF of Chapter One, that will be available at the same time.

If you haven't received your Backerkit survey, let us know ASAP.  We're happy to send you a direct link.

So excited to get you the next chapter in the White Ash adventure.


Charlie, Conor and Fin

Surveys are coming tomorrow
about 1 month ago – Thu, Mar 22, 2018 at 11:47:19 PM

Hello White Ashians,

Well, after a week, Kickstarter has finished their thing. And by their  thing, we mean processing all the credit cards (thank you again). So now it's time for us to start ours. 

Tomorrow morning the surveys will be going out from Backerkit.  If you don't see yours by 12pm EST, check your junk mail.  If you don't see it there, shoot us a email and let us know.  It's really important that you fill them out, that way we'll be able to get your address so we can send you your rewards. It's also how we make sure that we get the proper spelling of your name/ how you'd like to be listed in the backer's section of our PDF for Chapter Two.

And yes, there will be an opportunity to add items on to your order.  So for all those who asked about getting an extra print copy of White Ash, this is your chance. You will also have the option to add on more coasters, postcards, magnets, etc. (including some merch that wasn't offered as part of the KS for Chapter Two).

It's also your ONLY chance to grab one of the ten extra Nick Robles variant covers for Chapter Two. Speaking of that cover, Nick's been working away at it.  And while it's not quite done yet, he's let us share this AMAZING  sneak peek.

It's pretty stunning.  All of us at Team Ash are thrilled to have Nick's work added to the White Ash universe. We're sure they're going to go quickly.  So if you want one, keep an eye out for that survey. 

Couple more odds and end for you all.  We're going to close the vote for the magnet color   tomorrow at 11:59pm EST.  If you haven't voted and want to, you can VOTE HERE

If you have friends who've missed the Kickstarter who are interested in getting a copy of White Ash, you can tell them our preorder store is now open. This is also the place to go if you were a digital backer and decide later on that you'd like a print copy of the book.

Conor is working away on the Atlas Ads right now. Once he's done with those and we have all our backer names collected, we will be sending out the PDF's for Chapter Two.  If all goes well, we'll have them to you before that March Lion is done roaring.

Thanks again.  We so excited to share White Ash: Chapter Two with you.

All the best from Team Ash

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it one more time. Our backers, all 443 of you, are the best.

Okay, so here’s a timeline of what’s coming next (AKA when do I get my stuff?).

1) Collection

Right now Kickstarter is processing everyone’s credit cards. If your card doesn’t go through (say if you cancelled it, got a new one, etc. since the start of the campaign), Kickstarter will reach out to you and ask you for a replacement. So look for that email. Currently there are still a couple outstanding that need to be updated. 

2) Surveys

Once Kickstarter is done with their part, then Backerkit takes over. They’ll send you a survey asking for shipping information, how you’d like your name listed in the PDF of Chapter Two and will give you the option to include any add on’s (an extra copy of the book, drink coast, etc.) you might like in your order.

3) PDF’s

Expect the PDF’s (for Chapter One and Two) to be sent out near the end of March. While the book is done, we still need to include all the names and create the “ad” section for our Charles Atlas tier members.  

4) Deluxe PDF of Chapter Two

Expect the Deluxe PDF of Chapter Two to come your way near the middle of April. Since we’re super-sizing it, we want to take the time to do it right.

5) Address Confirmation

When the books are getting close to arriving at White Ash HQ, Backerkit will send out an email asking you if you’ve moved. If so, you’ll be able to update your address to make sure your comics get to the right house/apt/yurt. This will probably be at the end of May early June.

6) Shipping Time

Come June, assuming all goes to plan, your books will be packed up and sent.

We will definitely keep you updated along the way. If there are any snafus, you will be the first to know. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re so excited to show you what we’re building in White Ash.

In the interim, you're always welcome to join Conor (and often Charlie... and hopefully Fin) on TWITCH.  We also have a monthly newsletter you can sign up for.  Now that the Kickstarter is over, there will be much less spamming to pledge and more interesting content, promise.

So with all that said, we officially Welcome you all to town.  Hope you survive your stay.

We should have known.  Our backers are simply the best.


We did it. Unbelievable.

There are no words... but we'll type a few anyway. Mainly --Stretch Goal #5, the Trading Cards, are UNLOCKED.

And we still have 36 hours left.

So here's the deal, let's see how BIG we can make the set. For every additional $500 we raise, we’ll add another card to the set. So at $14,500 we’d do five cards… at $15,000 we’d do six… and so on.

And if we hit 15K, EVERY BACKER getting a physical reward, will get the whole card set. So tell your friends, there's even more White Ash to be had, and time is rapidly running out for them to get their piece of the coal-dusted pie.

Thank you again for all the support.  Conor and Charlie will be LIVE on Conor's Twitch stream tomorrow night starting around 10:30pm EST to count down the final hours of the book.  So please join us.  We'd love to say hello and thank you, live on the stream, to any and all of our amazing backers.

Till then,

Have a good sleep,

Charlie, Conor and Fin (AKA Team Ash)
