      Got mine this morning here in the UK. I'm at work so haven't taken it out of the bag yet, but look forward to reading it soon!

    2. Creator Daniel Amos on December 11, 2012

      Got my book this morning here in Australia. It is amazing, I can't stop laughing. Can't wait for the next volume!

    3. Creator Ryan Browne on December 11, 2012

      Glad to hear the international orders are starting to come in! I had no idea it would take over a month for them to get there and clear customs. Charlie, sorry, you haven't gotten it yet but given the fact that I haven't had any returned to me I would hope that it's still fighting it's way through customs limbo. Email me in a week if you haven't gotten it. Sorry for the delay! ryan@godhatesastronauts.com

      Got my copy in the mail on Friday, and it's a treat to flip through. Haven't read any of it yet, but the burning tie alone has gotten its fair share of laughs. Thanks so much!

    11. Creator Aaron on October 22, 2012

    12. Creator Coniah Grimes on October 21, 2012

      It's getting close to the end of the month. I'm getting excited!

    13. Creator Aaron on October 21, 2012

      Estimate on US Delivery times?

    14. Creator Aaron on October 6, 2012

      =) cannot wait to see my mustache edition =)

    15. Creator Hansel on October 5, 2012

      Thanks for the Survey.

    16. Creator Peder Bergenwall on October 5, 2012

      Do you have an estimate on international/EU delivery times? Just so as to not having to anticipatently check the mail every day. :P

    17. Creator Aaron on October 2, 2012

      Any word yet on survey orders?

    18. Creator Peder Bergenwall on October 2, 2012

      Ryan, I noticed! Thank you, looking forward to show the print one off to my cash strapped but jealous friends. ;)

    19. Creator Ryan Browne on October 1, 2012

      Peder, everyone will be getting the pdf version... it was the first stretch goal that you guys unlocked! Order survey's coming soon!

    20. Creator Aaron on September 28, 2012

      I just watched the video for the first time OMG it was great roflmao

    21. Creator Aaron on September 28, 2012

      Get well soon Ryan.

    22. Creator Peder Bergenwall on September 28, 2012

      By the way, any chance of getting the pdf version as well as the print copy?

    23. Creator Ryan Browne on September 28, 2012

      Hah that's awesome guys! I'm actually sick with a cold in bed right now. I'll be sending out your surveys on Monday as well as your PDFs so we can determine who gets what page of art.

    24. Creator Coniah Grimes on September 28, 2012

      @Keppler: Yes it was. At first I was confused but then it clicked.

    25. Creator Frank Krulicki on September 28, 2012

      When do we get to get to pick our piece of art??

    26. Creator Luke Keppler on September 28, 2012

      Best Inbox email subject line ever:
      "Your Payment to God Hates Astronauts has succeeded"

    27. Creator Peder Bergenwall on September 28, 2012

      Congratulations, this will be the treat of the year (possibly outtreating my DreadBall KS). Will have to keep my eyes out for Blast Furnace 2 as well, will that also be a Kickstarter?

    28. Creator enteraudio on September 28, 2012

      Congratz! Looking forward to the book!

    29. Creator Ryan Browne on September 28, 2012

      It would be awesome to color the book, but man... that would take so much time. I think my time will be better served making Blast Furnace Two! Sorry about the no stretch goal for $9000, I really wasn't imagining that we would ever get this far! At this point the books have been sent to press and I will be sending out the bookplate and sticker and tshirt orders on Monday. Thanks so much for everyones awesome support!!!!!

    30. Creator Aaron Salitra on September 28, 2012

      16 minutes! Woohoo! Can't wait to read through this masterpiece!

    31. Creator Coniah Grimes on September 28, 2012

      @ Ryan Browne: That makes sense.

    32. Creator Peder Bergenwall on September 28, 2012

      So, no 9k stretch? Not complaining though, I'm gladly putting $15 (plus shipping) on the book itself. :)

    33. Creator Junik on September 28, 2012

      how about some nice looking bookmarks as 9K$ stretchgoal? I thinks thats something low in cost but nice to have :)

    34. Creator enteraudio on September 28, 2012

      You know, the "color the book" thing was mentioned a while ago .. this was pretty successful, I don't think $30k is unreachable for next time .. just sayin. I'd pledge again!

    35. Creator Ryan Browne on September 27, 2012

      I'm doing my t-shirt printing on demand so I will be putting in only one order right when kickstarter ends. So there won't be any extras. I apologize but it hasn't worked for me before getting large orders of shirts and hoping I have the right size in stock. Sorry about that!

    36. Creator Coniah Grimes on September 27, 2012

      Will the t-shirts be available later?

    37. Creator Ryan Browne on September 27, 2012

      Aw man, can't believe we did it! Nine grand!

    38. Creator Aaron on September 27, 2012

      We are over 9000....

    39. Creator Aaron on September 27, 2012

      @ Ryan =) I was hoping I would be the only one for that but at least I am not alone =) still time for the remaining 3 to be taken.

    40. Creator Ryan Browne on September 27, 2012

      Aaron I am so excited that two people pledged for the mustache edition! That's gonna be so fun for me to do! When I get around to Blast Furnace Two: The Search For More Money, I will certainly be in touch!

      Ryan

    41. Creator Aaron on September 27, 2012

      Ryan another idea is to give us Mustache Edition backers a lifetime sub every new volume you send us a Mustache version. =)

    42. Creator Aaron on September 27, 2012

      Hmmm a whiskey or hard liquor based off the comic? =P (A future idea would to make a movie off this project)=)

    43. Creator Ryan Browne on September 27, 2012

      Thanks Peder! I hope the book lives up to the cover! Aaron, I'm fresh out of ideas for stretch goals. Any thoughts?

    44. Creator Aaron on September 27, 2012

      Hey Ryan what happens if we hit 9 grand?

    45. Creator Peder Bergenwall on September 27, 2012

      24 hours left and I just found this. Having missed out on a lot of cool projects last minute, this makes me giggle with joy and wonder. The cover art alone (the fonts, THE COLORS!) makes this worthwhile.

    46. Creator AronDatu on September 23, 2012

      Best wishes!!!

    47. Creator Aaron on September 22, 2012

      =) 5 days to go woot!!

    48. Creator Ryan Browne on September 21, 2012

      Oh man, I so so excited that you got the Mustache Edition, Aaron! I can't wait to work on it for you! YES YES YES!!!

    49. Creator Daryl on September 21, 2012

      Awesome Aaron! :) On our way to 8k!
