Scout Comics has announced that Charlie Stickney and Conor Hughes are back with a new installment of White Ash, the followup to the Kickstarter series that raised a quarter of a million dollars.
Welcome back to White Ash, a small smudge of a town in western Pennsylvania, where mining is a generational calling and the secrets are buried deeper than the coal in the mountain. And the biggest of those secrets is that elves and dwarves live hidden among the town’s population.
Alex, fresh off finding out he comes from a family of dwarves, plans a secret romantic rendezvous in the woods with Lillian the elf… or not so secret, as their meeting is witnessed by a young couple with dire results.
“White Ash has been an ambitious undertaking from the start,” said Charlie Stickney in a press release. “The scope of the world I was looking to build, the timeline I was looking to cover and the breadth of characters and themes I wished to explore, was a daunting proposition. With Conor, I not only found an incredibly skilled storytelling partner, but one who rather shirking from the challenge, said, ‘but what if we also add…’ And from that moment I knew, I’d found a kindred sprit, with whom I look forward to together, creating many years of White Ash adventures.”
White Ash is scheduled to arrive on November 17, 2021.
