UPDATE: OK folks, we're STILL printing and mailing out books. A few weeks ago, I hand delivered a few copies to some backers at HeroesCon in Charlotte. It's a slow process. I print in small batches through KaBlamm in an effort to control the quality and then mail them out myself. Thanks for your patience though and stay tuned. That said, I'm considering emailing PDFs of the comic to any backer who would like one — that would be in addition to the physical copy you have coming your way. If that sounds like something you would dig, let me know. Again — seriously — thanks for your patience. Everyone has been super nice through this entire process, and I really appreciate that.
Hey guys — thanks for your patience on the mailing of the comic book. In case you're wondering where your comic is: We printed up and mailed out a small test batch two weeks ago but there were some printing problems, so we've gone back to press with a corrected version. We'll be sending out a large batch of comics later this week.
Yes, the fulfillment portion is always a beast. Originally we were thinking it would take us a few weeks to get everything out the door, but it's looking like the whole process will take about four weeks. That said, we're committed to wrapping this up by the middle of May.
Again, thanks for your patience and stay tuned! Any questions or concerns, shoot me a message.
