Risks and challenges

We love backing comics projects! But we found a common theme/problem in a majority of the projects we backed personally. As in any other Kickstarter project, we are met with some risks and challenges. We did NOT want to present a product that was nowhere close to being finished and then project an unrealistic completion date to our backers. SO here's the plan to make sure YOU get the FINISHED product and REWARDS ... ON TIME!

- We did not click "launch" this Kickstarter campaign until 90% of the project was COMPLETE. IN THE CAN. FINITO. (Dat's super important...)
- We built realistic shipping goals based on the locations of all of the creators involved. If your shipping date looks far away, please consider this creative team is comprised of members living all over the world! Some original art rewards include a shipping round trip of 18,000 miles! So your reward is going to be EXTREMELY special and unique.
- Communication. We are prepared to engage our backers with timely, planned updates to both ensure transparency and clear communication but not over-burden backers with an influx of emails. Expect no more than 1 update per week until your reward has arrived!
