I'm building an igloo out of these things.
I'm building an igloo out of these things.

Hello from Package Palace! A river of beautiful Will Eisner books is raging through my apartment and feeding into the great ocean of comics. Just thought I'd drop a line, apologize for the fact that I'm still packing and shipping these suckers, and let you know where things stand. 

We're finally approaching 50% fulfillment! As of today, all of the STANDARD BOOK packages are en route to their proud soon-to-be-owners. And all of the RETAILER packages are on the way as well, so the shops who backed the campaign will have the books well in advance of of their street date. The books shipped via media mail, so give it up to two weeks for them to arrive. But by now you should have received an email letting you know about your tracking number -- so if you're a regular (non-signed, non-special edition) book backer or retailer and have not received a tracking number, please let us know and we'll figure out what's going on.

Up next are the signed editions and special editions, then original art and sketches, then printing plate editions. Still fully expect to have all of these guys out and on their way by the end of August! Thank you all for your wonderful patience and incredible support. We're so excited to get these glorious creatures out across land and sea and into their forever homes.

Your pal,

Josh

      Hi Tom! Just to address your concern -- they're very sturdy envelopes, and anything that's going far is reinforced internally with cardboard. But of course, if any damages do occur we will send another undamaged copy!

      I'm sorry--I just saw your reply to my query in the Kickstarter messages. The reply includes my tracking number, but it was not there when I read the last update. Again, THANKS!

    16. Locust Moon Press 3-time creator on

      Jens & Patricia - please check your Kickstarter messages!
      Wil & Bismuth - yours didn't go out in the first batch, but going soon!

    18. Jens on

      Same here - No tracking number. I am in Germany and pledged for the HC-book. Let's see, how it works out. And it's great that the books are on their way.

      Are the hardcovers shipping in envelopes and not boxes? if so, hope there is a large overprint, because there will be damages.

    22. Locust Moon Press 3-time creator on

      Leslie: A big pile of books was just picked up by the USPS today, so yours was probably one of those. You should see the tracking update soon! Let us know if nothing happens, of course.

      All the other backers who've commented: check your Kickstarter messages to see your tracking numbers!

      I'm a backer for the standard book and haven't received a tracking number. (Also in Canada, like Sebastien.)

      I got the tracking number on the 9th too (subject line is "Andrew Carl has sent you a package"), but USPS does say the package was picked up today for shipment. Looking forward to it!

    28. Leslie Dunne on

      I got a tracking number on the 9th, but it still says only that the pre-shipment information has been sent to the USPS so it seems like they don't even have my package more than a week after receiving my tracking number. Is that expected?

    29. Sebastien Provencher on

      No tracking number yet (maybe because I'm in Canada?)

      No tracking number yet
