Boston Metaphysical Society Vol. 2 Heads Toward Stretch Goal #4!
2 months ago – Sun, Apr 24, 2022 at 05:24:35 PM

Hello Awesome Backers:

I wanted to give you a quick update on what's going on with Vol. 2. So far we have reached three stretch goals and are rapidly closing in on the fourth. Which means everyone who has pledged to a reward will be receiving 12 ADDITIONAL DIGITAL COMICS and everyone who has pledged to a physical reward will receive TWO MAGNETS

Check these out:

And if we make stretch goal #4 (which I think we will), there are two more magnets up for grabs.


There's  more to come, so please head over to the Kickstarter page and pledge today.

Hello Awesome Backers:

We have news!

 KICKSTARTER THANK YOU WALL

I'm please to announce that the Kickstarter Thank You Wall is now LIVE! Please let me know if I have accidentally left you off the list or misspelled your name, and I will correct it. 

NEW BOSTON METAPHYSICAL SOCIETY KICKSTARTER

For those who missed the last update, I will be launching a campaign to print the trade paperback of all four sequels, plus an exclusive ten-page bonus story with art by Roberta Ingranata. Here's a peek at one of the panels.

You can sign up here to be notified when we launch.

OTHER NEWS

In other news,  I had the pleasure of having dinner with the Lady Mechanika team at WonderCon. It was a delight to meet everyone, and I look forward to working on the story.  

I'm also working on the next Boston Metaphysical Society graphic novel series. It will be a four-issue story arc, but this time we are heading to Colorado Springs for a new adventure.

And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention a couple of cool Kickstarters going on right now.

RECOMMENDED KICKSTARTERS

WHITE ASH DELUXE EDITION

If you haven't heard of White Ash yet, then you are missing a treat. The story is about a small smudge of a mining community in Western Pennsylvania, where the  secrets are buried even deeper than the coal under the mountain. If  you’re a fan of Supernatural, Twin Peaks or Lord of the Rings, you’re going to love getting to know our mysterious town.


This campaign is to raise funds to print the 64 page comic White Ash: Deluxe Edition. It has already crashed through a number of stretch goals.

Night Wolf #1-6: An Urban Fantasy Story

This one is tons of fun. (And I'm not just saying that because Rob is my friend.) If you like Buffy, horror, and cool supernatural elements, then this is for you. The story is about a young man, who after discovering he's descended from a line of werewolves, is thrust into a supernatural war.

The campaign is to print issue 6, but the first five will be available as well.

As always, thank you for supporting the project.

More to come.  Best, Madeleine

Hello Awesome Backers:

I'm thrilled to announce that the CDs have arrived and they look great!

I will start packing them up tomorrow to mail out. Those who ordered flash drives AND a CD will get them in the same box.  U.S. backers who ordered books as well, will probably be getting them in two different shipments.  (Note to International Backers with book packages:  I will be splitting those shipments into two boxes and send them out about a week and a half a apart to help keep down VAT.)
