Blast Furnace is complete… now on to God Hates Astronauts!

Hey everyone! Thanks again for the amazing success that was Blast Furnace! Everyone should have all of their rewards by now... please email me at if anything showed up damaged or didn't show up at all.

Now that Blast Furnace is done, I am proud to announce the launching of my new Kickstarter campaign for "GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS: THE COMPLETELY COMPLETE HARDCOVER EDITION!!!" It's a 180 page full cover hardcover collection of my other web-comic God Hates Astronauts! If you like the humor in Blast Furnace, you'll love GHA. You can check out the Kickstarter here

Thanks everyone for your continued support, and I really hope you will be a part of making God Hates Astronauts another great success!!!

We've shipped!

Hey all! Looks like domestic orders are starting to roll in. INTERNATIONAL shipping is now done! So technically, I am done fulfilling orders! YAY! 

Thanks so much to everyone for their support and patience with the project. It achieved a scope that I never could have imagined and was so fantastically awesome! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

That said, I just filled a TON of orders so there are bound to be errors and screw ups on my part. I ask you to have patience with me and if I messed anything up please feel free to email me at so we can get it all worked out.

Hope to see you all again in late January when I launch my second and final kickstarter campaign for my webcomic, God Hates Astronauts. Hopefully I learned enough through this process that that one will go even smoother! If you like Blast Furnace, check out GHA online at



Watch your mailboxes...

Hey all! Almost all of the domestic orders of Blast Furnace are in the mail! Expect to get yours by the middle of next week at the latest (come on post office, don't fail me now!). 

As for international orders, I'm hoping to have all of them done and in the mail by Friday. SO MANY CUSTOMS FORMS TO FILL OUT!!! So yeah, thanks for your patience on that.

Thanks everyone. If you have any questions about shipping just email me at

Thanks so much! We're almost done!

Fulfillment in progress!

HEY ALL! Just a little update on the fulfillment of all the Blast Furnace orders. The books are in and I am signing and doing a tiny doodle in all of them as we speak! I'm also signing and numbering your bookplates and putting the stickers in your books. So much to do! 

Shipping supplies are ordered and will be in this week as will T-Shirts for those that ordered them. Commissions are half done and your art pages have been selected. 

Hope to see books arriving next week for domestic shipping and a little bit after for international orders. Thanks so much for everyones help in making the book a reality and I appreciate your patience on the fulfillment of your orders. Talk about a ton of work for one guy, but it is totally worth it! THANKS A MILLION EVERYONE!!!!

Also thanks to David MacInnis for the amazing custom Blast Furnace figure! He's been a huge help!
