Use this space to cheer the creator along, and talk to your fellow backers.
Have a question?
@Michael Farah I did.
Uh...did we all just give up on this thing?
I'm confused now but pretty sure I got mine and read it....lol now I need to go check.
Did anything happen with this in the end??
Has everyone received everything?
Paul is hard at work on solving the whole thing. Lots of behind the scenes stuff going on that needs to be taken care of.
Nicki - I contacted them through Twitter about 3 weeks ago. I was told there would be an update (11/23 in Mr Jenkins Twitter feed). Obviously still nothing. I am not sure which is worse, not being honest with us or just radio silence. I've written the money off.
Hello again. I contacted Kickstarter Oct 31 instead of posting here as no one is responding. The last comment from anyone was Oct 10. Has anyone heard anything since then? The Kickstarter rep basically said they couldn't do anything except send an email encouraging the creators to update backers. I'm assuming the creators are facing further issues [possibly, tragically, falling off the face of the earth], however, some kind of response would be nice. Should I even try contacting again? It's been a year and a half since it was funded and this was very disappointing. Congrats to those lucky few who got something beyond the pdf book, condolences to those, like me, who didn't.
Is anyone a lawyer or older person who knows a lawyer?
I still haven't received anything either. Does anyone have any updates? Words of encouragement? Pictures as proof of an actual book?
I got nuthin. I'd really like my money/time/and support back :/ This isnt really charity (unless you pledge $1 and say so), but the idea of kickstarter crowdfunding is to donate money, with the promise of having some sort of involvement in the project, whether it is receiving the project, credit FOR the project, or help in making the project. The agreement is broken if we dont recieve what was promised to us, WHEN it was promised to us.
Another month and no word and no package - any updates? anyone gotten an email? i haven't.
Does anyone have any updates about this?
So umm...great to hear people are starting to get packages [especially in Canada - where I am] I'm waiting on the Signed Collected edition and no one has responded to my emails thru here or through the fairy quest email so my fingers are crossed I'm one of the lucky people who will be getting a package soon. Good luck everyone!
Got my Collected Edition TPB in Australia today. And I must say it was a meaty sketch!
@Sean - in update #17 (the last one) they mention that the story is 'hideously way too late' (under the SERIOUS SECTION), and they mention announcing the progress of the story soon.
What is this "email" you all are getting? In Chicago here, and still havent gotten anything. Really unhappy with all of this. Not even any replies of the creators themselves. VERY unprofessional.
Got mine in Canada Yesterday.
My book and sketch arrived today. However I was under the impression that there was a new issue to be included as well since the funding was for an a new issue to be created. Has anyone heard any updates on that?
Got my book/sketch today in WA State.
Got mine today, 13 hours after the email saying it had shipped lol.
I also received notice today, July 30, that mine has shipped. Tracking shows that it left Atlanta today and is expected to be delivered tomorrow, July 31.
It seems that the physical versions might be on the way soon. I got a notification this morning that mine had shipped and is due to arrive tomorrow (7/31). In the latest FQ update, it was stated that they picked up Sidekick stock to finish off these items. Let's hope that people are finally getting their books.
Is there any update on the physical versions?
I received a message as well stating they had several issues to work through. Hopefully, a mention of an update on the project was included as well. I saw the FQ updates this morning so I am hopeful we will get more news and updates soon.
They just put up the last FQ update so hopefully they'll post here and give an update or at least answer some emails. I'm still waiting for any info [and my stuff] too.
I need to change my address. Do i just send you an email?
He messaged me today on here and says they are dealing with the last copies that need to be sent out. Had some other issues come up which caused the delay it seems.
I have not....starting to get a little annoyed
Has anyone received a response to an email lately? I have sent a couple asking for an update, but have not received any replies.
I echo what Martin said.
Any news at all on books being shipped?
Just double checking - last update was in March...has everything been sent? cause I didn't get anything...
Hmm nothing here yet......
The signed trade arrived at my door today! With a knock, even! Not a smile, though. The look suggested that the Machine of Death Delivery was nearly complete.
But until the MoDD arrives, I'm going to enjoy the book. Thanks! Looking forward to the new issue!
Still nothing.....still waiting patiently by the mailbox!
New update is live!
I hope all is going well. Just wondering if there will be an update about the release of the books.
So.. update bump......................................
When is my book coming????
What is the expected shipping date for the TPB? We haven't heard anything about this for months. An update would be appreciated. Thanks.
We're now about 5 months after the delivery date. Can we get an update on when something will happen?
Please check your inboxes for the PDF links. I have recently returned to the fray, so to speak, and I will be updating regularly from now on. My apologies for the delays - all I can do right now is get back into the details and update as often as I can.
My wife Melinda and I have taken back the communication and fulfillment. It's going to take us a while to get to everything but we are on the job. Please enjoy the PDF versions of the two Sidekick books, and watch for updates in the near future.
Oh, and read slowly - this will buy us a little time to get this sorted out! :)
Nevermind. Just got the Summer Spectacular as well!
Just got the PDF for the TPB! The Summer Spectacular should arrive over the weekend which will make for some crazy, crazy stories to read.
Got the collected edition PDF, thanks guys! I pledged for the digital everything, therefore, besides the wallpaper which were sent me some time ago and the new issue you are working on, I should also receive a PDF for the Super Summer Spectacular, am I right?
@Mark: PDF is being worked on right now and should be ready soon. Other rewards to follow soon.
Given the lengthy delay on the other projects shipping update I feel obligated to post here asking for one here now too.
Yeah so what's the deal with this? I've got wallpaper so far...no pdf and where's the print version? Is this going to be a self published thing? Or will we see it in future Image Comics solicitations? We want answers.
