Hello folks -

We're working on getting all the orders put together and there are still quite a few of you who haven't filled out your Backerkit survey - 74 in fact! Please take a moment and go to this link -

And please fill out  your survey if you haven't already - otherwise, you won't get your books!

Also, we'll be sending out an update to all the backers who backed Dead Man's Hand as we'll be combining your orders for cheaper shipping. So, look for an email from us later this week about that!

Thank you!

Deadlands: Raven - Help Us Unleash the Reckoning!

The second full Deadlands Graphic Novel is the tragic and epic tale of the biggest bad guy in the Deadlands Universe! The story of Raven spins out of a tragic past and leads to a devastating future. Raven is the man who unleashed the Reckoning upon the world! Now witness his complete story from boyhood to the far future!

Written by former Deadlands Brand Manager Matt Cutter and C. Edward Sellner, with art by legendary artist Greg LaRocque, this book is a must-have for all Deadlands fans!


And if you're loving our comics so far, here's another cool project that just launched:

Adelita 3017

Set in a futuristic post-apocalyptic world, the story follows Adelita, a character based on the archetype of the female soldier in the Mexican Revolution. Heavily influenced by Mexican folklore, with elements and visual settings similar to Mad Max: The Road Warrior, 80’s action and martial art movies, and dystopian sci-fi with a fantasy aura reminiscent of classic Mexican fables and folklore, making the series a perfect blend to appeal to a wide range of fans!

Created, written, and drawn by superstar Visionary artist Ariel Medel with top talent on colors and variant covers!

Yo, Outriders!

Sorry for the delay in updates, but I have great news!

It took a little longer than we were told, but all books are now at the fulfillment center! Our Dead Man's Hand books arrived earlier this week and are even now being sorted for shipping!

Outland is coordinating to do the bundle shipping for all of you who backed Rise of the Black Circle #2 and Dead Man's Hand, and shipments should start going out by next week at the latest!

We are so thrilled to finally be getting these books into your hands and starting to look at the next steps for Outrider! We've got more exciting stuff coming, but next up is a graphic novel we know many of you have been waiting a long time for...

Details and pre-signups coming soon! Who's with us?

Printing and Shipping Update! The Time Draws Near!

Yo, Outriders!

I wanted to post when I had some more locked-down details, and now I do...

Books are at the printer and we have been assured the printed books should arrive at our fulfillment center around the middle of October, which hopefully means you all should start having them in hand by the end of October. 

We have some additional good news:

Those of you who backed our Deadlands: Dead Man's Hand campaign, which hit some delays in printing, it turns out all the books we're printing should arrive in the same shipment, so we will be offering bundle shipping for both campaigns. So if you backed Dead Man's Hand, with your free copy of Black Circle 1, you can also get issue 2 sent to you in a bundle, saving on shipping costs.

We are staying on top of things and will keep all of you updated. I will be posting any needed directions for your bundle delivery once we get closer and have that worked out.

In the meantime, based on feedback from you fine folks, while we will still offer issue 3 of this series, along with the collected edition, we are in the process of shifting our model from doing individual issues of Outrider books, to full graphic novels and will also be looking into other opportunities to do bundle shipping from different campaigns all run by Outland to save some of those costs.

We want you to know we are listening to feedback, trying to address concerns, and doing everything in our power to get stuff in your hands just as soon as humanly possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding in dealing with some of the challenges that presents. But know we got you!
