Scout Comics continues to seemingly mine my Kickstarter history as the publisher has picked up White Ash. Written by Charlie Stickney, illustrated & lettered by Conor Hughes, and colored by Fin Cramb, the series is set in a small town with big secrets.

Set in a small smudge of a town in Western Pennsylvania, White Ash follows Aleck Zwerg, the frustrated but charismatic son of a coal miner, who long ago outgrew the bounds of what the town had to offer.  Spurning a generational calling to work in the mine, Aleck’s been counting down the hours until he can get the hell out of White Ash and head off to college. But an accident at a coal mine stalls his exit, setting him down a life-altering path. One that brings him into the orbit of the enigmatic Lillian Alden, the daughter of the elitist owner of the mine.

“I'm thrilled to finally have found a home for White Ash in Scout, a great place for independent creators like us.” says artist Conor Hughes. “They've consistently placed their talent at the forefront of their priorities. There ain't no stopping this train now!”

“We’re incredibly proud to have White Ash join Scout's stellar line-up of titles.” added writer Charlie Stickney. “We have an epic story of fantasy, horror and forbidden romance, with many chapters left to tell.”

Fans attending San Diego Comic-Con will have a chance to pick up a limited edition foil cover of Midnight Sky #1 will any purchase of White Ash-related merchandise at the Scout Comics booth (L-10 Small Press).

I've been following White Ash for awhile now and it's a pretty intriguing story with a lot of depth. I could not be happier for the creators involved.
