"Dear Kickstarter supporters. I am sorry. There is no excuse. I am very disappointed in the way this Kickstarter was managed. AW YEAH COMICS was never meant to put money in our pockets. Its purpose was to pay for printing and postage. Which it accomplished successfully. Things should have been handled and shipped much faster than what had transpired. I am currently working on this situation personally. We owe you BIG TIME! We really love and respect our fans and supporters. I hope this Fundraising experience hasn’t turned you off the “ART BALTAZAR & FRANCO” brand of comics. Those who stuck around…THANK YOU. And I hope many of you continue to follow us. In the world of self-publishing and creator owned characters, we often have to take time out and accept paying jobs to support our families. I hope you can understand. There is never enough time in the day to work on every character we have in our creative minds. We love making comics. Our fundraising campaign was much more ambitious than any of us could have predicted. I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive our mistakes and lack of updates and attention. Again, I, Art Baltazar, am personally looking to correct this. So here is an UPDATE… -Yes, all of AW YEAH COMICS issues 1-12 are finished. -Everyone will be receiving your issues in the mail. In addition, a link will be posted for ALL backers to access free digital copies of our comics. Our way of saying Thank You. You deserve it. -YES! We have recorded the Digital Audio Read-ALONG comic! Music and sound effects are being added! -The ANNUALs are coming! We didn’t forget! “PEACH and The ISLE of MONSTERS“, will be printed soon with a nice little bonus surprise. The digital link will be shared in the meantime. -our second annual, “CORA De FLORA from Bora Bora” is in progress! Pencils are finished and INKS have begun! I will let you know as soon as I am done and ready to send to the printer. I am really looking forward to this one. I hope you will like it too. I apologize for the lack of communication. I take responsibility and I will keep us on track. I am grateful for those who believe in the dream and continue to support our comics. If you have any questions, please direct then to me… firstname.lastname@example.org" -Art Baltazar
Art has given me PDF's of the entire AW YEAH COMICS! run for everyone. I too wish to apologize for how far off schedule I've gotten with everything. Please know that I am taking major steps to correct my shortcomings and will put my all into making things right by you. Expect another update (and some packages) VERY soon!
Until then, please enjoy these digital copies and, again, accept my deepest apologies.
