DEATH DEALER HOMAGE + NEW KICKSTARTERS + PALS
19 days ago – Thu, Sep 08, 2022 at 05:53:54 PM

Hello Strangers!

How are you guys? It’s been a little bit since my last update and a lot has been happening in our world! I have been busy working on a lot of new Asunda tales, aptly named Tales of Asunda! Here is a sneak peek of one of our pages from one of our new comics starring a younger Waso, Dusu, and Niobe! 

Waso and Dusu racing!

COMING SOON: We will be rocking new Kickstarters that will share these tales. I am super excited for these new comics. If you you’re David Mack and Jae Lee fans you will be happy!

ART BOOK! We have had a lot of requests for this, so we have decided to make it happen! A Kickstarter Hardcover edition of "THE ART OF NIOBE & the World of Asunda." There will be an art competition too…message me if you’re interested! Due to how long hardcovers take to print now, we may start this on a new account under the Stranger Comics name, while we will keep comics etc under my named account here. 

DEATH DEALER: We’ve also been rocking with our Patreon! If you haven’t had a chance to join, please check it out here! Remember, each member gets 20% off our store, access to all our digital stuff and the Patreon only store on our website here. Higher levels get exclusives for FREE with free domestic shipping!! This month’s exclusive is Essessa as a DEATH DEALER homage for THE UNTAMED: Killing Floor #1 by Stranger Kickstarter alum Richard Thornsberry! As we honor the great Frank Frazetta.

As the broken body of the Ashen God crashed into the sea, searing blades of flame reshaped the land. A brand new 5e adventure awaits!

Happy Sunday!

I wanted to thank you, for all the support over the years. Kickstarter has been a wonderful platform to connect with our community in such awesome ways! Many of you I have met here, and then seen at conventions - some, the other way around. I'm really excited to let you know there are two kickstarters we have planned. The first will be new comic Tales of Asunda which should drop in the fall! If you're a fan of Niobe AND Dusu and Waso you will be in for a treat. I've been working on a lot of new issues, and please keep your peepers posted for a couple of big announcements! The following kickstarter, due to popular demand will be an art book, which we will launch around Spring. 

PATREON: Many of you have seen the Patreon launch, and a lot of you guys have backed it! I appreciate that so much! We really wanted to do some things on that platform that lent itself to this word - community. So, even from the $5/month level and up it allows you to get 20% off our website, including our Patreon Exclusive Shop! If you buy from us, you'll probably find this will save you $! :) You can read everything digitally, plus you guys a chance to connect directly with us and each other on the Discord! Of course, higher levels get more things like exclusive comics and merch sent with free shipping and more! We would like to really further the Stranger Family - that was this is about. So if you can, please sign up, we are nearly at $7K. Once we hit $10K every Patron will get a goodie!!! :) PATREON LINK HERE!

Join the Patreon and get access to the Patreon Store! David Mack exclusive comics, prints, and Tote Bags!

I have to also let you know that issue 2 to this Niobe & Dura comic features for the first time - the creation of the world of Asunda! It is a game changer!

A sneak peek of what's to come! These are a WIP of inks for NIOBE & DURA Issue #2
Sneak Peek of what's to come with Dusu, Waso, Uun-Sil, and Niobe :)

Thanks for your time! I really hope to see you on the Patreon Discord soon :)
