On October 1st, a new Kickstarter campaign will launch for Westward #6 to fund and distribute the book through retailers. The issue is currently available for pre-order through Diamond Previews (item code SEP131325), but as sales reach higher and higher numbers, Westward continues to seek funding from backers like you in order to meet the demand.
The new page is still being developed, and is only in its infancy stages, but the preview link can be found here:
As you can see, there’s a lot of work to be done, but the Rewards have been structured in such a way to maximize benefit over cost. All new prints will be featured for this campaign, and samples of these exclusive images will be added to the KS page over the next week. As a backer, you’ll receive updates with blogs, videos and photos documenting the process.
Look things over, let me know if you’ve got any questions or suggestions for tiers or updates. If you’re a Westward fan, pass the word along on Facebook or Twitter or whatever the kids are using now. The campaign will begin October 1st and run for 30 days.
By special request, a second retailer option has been added to the rewards tier. This package includes 5 copies of Westward: Volume 1 (cover price $18.99). All the books come signed with a special limited edition art print insert as well as a stack of promotional cards. Finally, your store’s name and website will be featured in a special “thank you” section of the book.
If you’re an interested retailer or a supporting customer, share a link to spread the word and get your copies sent personally by the artist and writer of Westward.
After repeated requests to sell character prints online, Kinetic Press has opened up a new shop on Etsy. Choose from a wide range of pop-culture prints, as well as a few rare Westward items! All prints are 11 x 17, signed, and include a backing board and protective sleeve.
