      Is it time for a Book 2 Kickstarter yet???

    2. Ezio Melega on January 31, 2015

      Any news on the PDFs?

      Maybe I've lost some update...

      Received my print copy & other rewards on Friday in Melbourne, Australia, and decided to have a lazy Sunday read today. I have been blown away by your book - I'm not really sure what I was expecting, but your book is one of the best superhero comics I've ever read (ironically one of my other favourites was All Star Superman)!), and I've been reading them for a long time!. The art is rich and evocative and evolves throughout, and the story is layered and moving. An unexpected bonus was the meta(?) text at the bottom of each page which added extra layers of connection with you the creators, and the characters and story.
      Congratulations! I look forward to book 2 in the future.

      Got my copy about 2 weeks ago. I love the durability of the material you used for the cover. Thanks!

      Andrew - have patience! We're shipping everything out (y'all ordered a LOT of books) and will update when everything's in the mail!

    11. Andrea Grey Redman on October 30, 2014

      Update time again? ^_^

      Book just came in the mail! Looks fantastic

    13. James Wnorowski on October 8, 2014

      Any chance backers can pick up our books at NYCC instead of getting them shipped? I'd understand if the answer was "no, that's a logistical nightmare" but I figured I'd ask.

    14. Andrea Grey Redman on September 26, 2014

      Awesome, thank you, I appreciate the intel. :o)

    15. Molly Ostertag 2-time creator on September 26, 2014

      We're just waiting for our books to arrive! International shipping is always unpredictable, but hopefully they'll arrive in the next week or so, and we'll send out an official update as soon as that happens!

    16. Andrea Grey Redman on September 26, 2014

      Any updates forthcoming? ^_^

    17. MissNox on August 30, 2014

      Wow, that paperback looks gorgeous! Worth every penny. Very excited to slot this into my collection, after reading of course. =^~^=

    18. Molly Ostertag 2-time creator on August 24, 2014

      Thanks guys! Pete - we're concentrating on getting rewards out first. Bios and other website changes will take a bit more time, look for them in early 2015!

      Pete Gast on August 23, 2014

      Thank you so much for the awesome story! I would love to read more about the various Biodynamic people like Moonshadow and Sonar. Do you have an update about when the bios bonus section will be available?

    20. Komic Brew on August 22, 2014

      Just a wee congratulations on a fantastic campaign, all the very best.

    21. Komic Brew on August 5, 2014

      Looking forward to get the book! :)

    22. Mark H. Walker on July 9, 2014

      Hi Folks,

      Got the PDF. Looks fantastic. First panel, second page... I think you mean to say "fine" not find". It's a mistake. They happen. No biggie.

    23. Olivia Howard on June 20, 2014

      I can't wait until you guys can add the comment section to the website! I am really loving this current storyline, and I know I'm not the only one who seriously wants to shower you with thanks for writing it!

      Hello guys, I found your webcomic through one friend and I'm loving it! One of the best I have read, I wish you all the luck in the kickstarter. Keep making more, it's great. :)

    27. Haran Sened on June 17, 2014

      Great comic, so happy to be backing it. Maybe we can even reach another stretch goal!

    28. Michael Hartmann

      Great so see another stretch goal reached. Congratulations!

    29. Molly Ostertag 2-time creator on June 16, 2014

      Thanks for helping us reach 50k, guys!! The bug where the online survey was showing all the email addresses is now fixed, thanks for everyone who let us know about that.

      Three days and $576 to go? Methinks you're going to make it!

    31. Aile D'Ciel on June 15, 2014

      I found this comic through the Kickstarter as well, and man, was I surprised because it's one of the best webcomics I've ever seen
      At this moment, The project is less than a thousand dollars from the $50,000 stretch goal, and it totally deserves every penny it gets. I mean, seriously, it's simply outstanding, and I would love to have an IRL copy of the book. Now, let's hope that we'll beat the goal in 3 days 8)

    32. Cindy M on June 13, 2014

      I'm excited to see that you will be getting a comments section on the webcomic. There are many pages where I'm dying to see some discussion about the issues/ideas you bring up in the comic (the latest page (6/13) for instance. What a realistic and great way to tackle an issue that some people don't understand *is* an issue!).

    33. Galliant Games on June 12, 2014

      Best of luck blasting through your next stretch goal of $50,000. You're almost there!

    34. Eli Pomerantz on June 10, 2014

      @Dave Van Domelen, thanks for the figure clue in, they look cool

    35. MissNox on June 6, 2014

      Just found this comic because of kickstarter, and I love it to pieces! :-) Glad to be a backer. :-)

    36. Dave Van Domelen on June 2, 2014

      Cross-promotion time: IAmElemental kickstarter, female action figures with more realistic body designs. Already funded, but figured people here might be interested.

      Thanks Molly, here is hoping my niece will like this little surprise in December...hopefully not so much she wants my signed copy lol!

    38. Molly Ostertag 2-time creator on May 30, 2014

      Hi XV! Add $22 to your pledge and make a note of it in your backer survey and we'll make sure you get two copies.

      XV-Dragon on May 30, 2014

      Weird question, any way I can order a second copy (unsigned) to along with my current one in the BIODYNAMIC INDIVIDUAL tier? Thinking I want to give a copy of the comic to my niece as a stocking stuffer since the estimated delivery time in November.

      She does not normally ready comics to my knowledge but this might be one she might enjoy for obvious reasons, but since there is no direct add ons in this KS not sure how to order a second hard copy.

      Great to see this moving forward at a good pace. Many others slow down to a crawl during the middle of the campaign. If we manage to keep this pace we should reach the next stretch goal in about a week.

      @Molly: Have you tried to contact people like Gail Simone or Greg Rucka? This seems to be a book they might like and a retweet from them won't hurt.

      XV-Dragon on May 29, 2014

      35k! Took longer then I thought it would but still hitting the fourth goal in 10 days is still pretty fast! Now lets see if we can get the other three :D

    42. Molly Ostertag 2-time creator on May 28, 2014

      Totally! I've been scoping out the Gunnerkrigg Court model of comments because I like how he handles those a lot.

    43. Dave Van Domelen on May 28, 2014

      I expect the comments section will need pretty heavy moderation to avoid going toxic due to the usual suspects. Probably best to use the "comment awaiting moderation" approach rather than deletion after the fact.

      I really like this story. Read it in one go yesterday, couldn't stop.. Keep up the good work!

    45. Molly Ostertag 2-time creator on May 23, 2014

      Good points, Rosebud! I imagine that any new readers will be able to find the password with a quick google search or failing that, an email to me. I like the idea of a bit of mystery!
