BACKERKIT + NEW YEAR UPDATES!
3 months ago – Wed, Jan 20, 2021 at 08:24:20 PM

Hey All!

It has been a month since my last update, just been dealing with some personal stuff related to COVID. Thanks for your patience...it feels like last year. Which it was. I digress - as usual :)

Happy New Year!

I wanted to let you all know that we are on target for our March release, we're just finishing cobbling together all of the bits and bobs for this kickstarter which I am super duper excited about! We are waiting on backerkit to give us the nod that all is in order for our surveys to go out, which should be approved any day now! In the meantime the PreOrder store is also up in case you wanted to add any extra comic, shirt or condom ;) Or the Darrell May Cover -  Sgt. Joey ADD ON for $15!

HERE IS THE PREORDER LINK

In other news, each Thursday I have been rocking some really fun LIVE INSTAGRAM sessions each Thursday at 6PM / 9PM EST on @strangercomics IG. So come and hang out, as I often give a heads up on our latest rare comics, originals, and more. 

Big bearded fellow

To that note, we just unveiled our rare The Untamed and Tales of Asunda FOILS from our last kickstarter for Niobe, which are getting shipped out. The rest are up on OUR WEBSITE HERE IN THE SECTION: THE STRANGER RESERVE. PASSWORD: ARUKAS.

There are even 50 ERROR VARIANTS which are flying! (The printer printed the wrong cover on each book, so The Untamed has a Tales of Asunda interior and vice versa... only 50!)

Shiny!

If you are new to the Niobe or the world of Asunda, you can subscribe and get a free read of THE UNTAMED just by visiting the website and signing up to stay in touch! There are a lot of things planned for 2021, so please stop by :)

So that's it, until the surveys are sent! Please feel free to reach out with any questions, and please stay safe!

Much love all!
