First up, a final THANKS for helping us get to 121% of our goal for this campaign. Now let's talk about what's next for Hero By Night!
Your Incentives: Jason and I will begin preparing the incentive packages for everyone. Digital only folks will get their stuff first as it's easiest to prepare. I'll send a weekly update to backers only on the progress of getting your incentives out, etc. We actually don't get the Kickstarter funding for a couple weeks, so things that need shipped or printed will have to wait on the funding to clear. Thanks for your patience!
THE NEW COMICS! - Whenever the new digital deluxe editions of Hero By Night are available, we'll post a download link as a backer update before we post anywhere else. Closely followed by a message to the Hero-Gram mailing list. If you're not a member of our Hero-Gram, now would be a good time to join at http://herobynight.keenspot.com/newsletter.html (also good for those of you reading this who didn't back us, but still want alerts when new issues happen)
Bonus Incentive! We made the 6k mark, so we're also going to tack on the "Secret Origin of Golden Glove" story which we'll make available as a download to backers first as soon as it's done.
Update Schedule: Right now our update schedule for the new "digital deluxe" editions of Hero By Night will be "as soon as we get it done!" -- No, that doesn't mean we'll be taking forever to update or have months between issues, on the contrary we're trying to get things rocking so that we can have a new downloadable installment every two weeks once we're on schedule. We will attempt to do a weekly creative update here for backers to see where we are in the process, etc.
Again... thanks for all your support. Back to the drawing board for us!
