      @Mozza - yeah, one of the last updates directed us to, but I only see links to buy or download an iPad app.

      And should we have received the download code for the MP3 album? I see it was released in April, but I don't remember receiving an email. Could have been blocked by spam filters by accident...

      Been a fan of your music and artwork for a long time, I'm so glad that you're making some comics! Keep up the great work, your inspiration is changing the world.

    29. Mat Weller on January 27, 2011

      Mr. Johnston, I wish you luck with your project! I wanted to make sure you knew about though. They're a pure online comic that publishes special editions when it's worth it, which is the way all comics (and all media for that matter) are heading. But they're in a better position than the big guys because they're smaller, more agile, and forward-thinking. Just consider them in you're process. They're doing for comics what and the new breed of indie authors who release free audiobooks are doing for the book publishing industry.

    30. Daniel Johnston Creator on January 24, 2011

      Thanks everyone! The project is a go!

      Additional donations are certainly needed and appreciated as the project is developed launched and marketed.

      And...a lot of cool pledge rewards remain including autographed first-printing copies of what is sure to become a collectable and original artwork from the comic book!

    31. Jeanine Fisher on January 22, 2011

      I hope the goal is met. I am glad to have helped!
