      Hi, just checking if there is an update one the hardcover version

    2. Creator Matt Pizzolo on February 9

      I'm going to set up a new online-form to fill out if you haven't received things so I can organize everything. That seemed to work last time. Sorry for the snafu.

    3. Creator Mathieu Doublet on February 9

      I'm still waiting for my original art. Has any backer received some ?

    4. Creator Jeff Hammell on January 24

      Happy new year!
      2015 and wondering about the hard cover version.

    5. Creator Ben Le Foe on December 5

      Hi Matt, someone else here still waiting for the hardcover... any news?

    6. Creator Christine Tobey on November 26

      Hi Matt,
      Seeing as we seem to live in the same city... is my hard cover edition being delivered by literal snail mail?
      This eternal optimist is still patiently waiting.

    7. Creator Jeff Hammell on November 19

      Another check-in for the hard cover. Thanks!

    8. Creator Matt on October 15

      Any update on the hardcover and when the original art would be shipping?

    9. Creator Jevon Archie on October 14

      Guess I'm still on the waiting list.

    10. Creator Jeff Hammell on September 19, 2014

      Dito just waiting on the hard cover. Softcover freebie was good.

    11. Creator Matt Pizzolo on September 4, 2014

      They've been shipping, but I haven't managed to get them all out yet. Working on it. Thanks for the patience & support.

    12. Creator Warren Pawlowski on June 2, 2014

      Any update on when the hardcovers should be shipping?

    13. Creator Matt Pizzolo on March 28, 2014

      Hey Ryan
      I tried to explain this in the past few updates.
      The printer is still working on the hardcovers (which will include your limited/signed/numbered).
      Because it's taking so long we sent you the paperback as well for free. You didn't pay for that, we just sent it to you because we don't want you to keep waiting. It's in addition to what you paid for. It's not replacing what you paid for.
      Sorry for the confusion.
      Thanks so much for supporting the Kickstarter and for being patient as it all came together.

    14. Creator Ryan Doherty on March 28, 2014

      Has anyone received the autographed/numbered items they paid for?

      I tried emailing, & over the past year and a bit... yet, nothing.

      Does anyone have other contact info for Matt Pizzolo or any info related to the limited edition items?

    15. Creator Ryan Doherty on March 26, 2014

      I received a book, but it wasn't:

      - autographed/numbered anthology (#1-100)
      - autographed/numbered limited edition copy of first issue (#1-100)

      Will those arrive separately, or did you mail those to someone else?

    16. Creator Jeff Hammell on March 1, 2014

      So.. It's shipping now?

    17. Creator Matt Pizzolo on February 4, 2014

      Alllllllllmost done! It goes to the printer this week. Thanks so much for your patience.

    18. Creator Kevin Kairys on February 3, 2014

      Any update about the anthology book and DVD. I pledged $100.

    19. Creator Chris Riley on January 20, 2014

      Matt, I just sent an email asking about when I can expect my book, I had pledged $50. Any word on when I should get this. Keep up the good work.

      Chris Riley

    20. Creator Matt on January 14, 2014

      My address has changed — any idea when the physical book will go out?

    21. Creator Ben Le Foe on January 7, 2014

      Any news? It's been TWO years now, which seems quite a long time...

    22. Creator Brian McNamara on December 20, 2013

      Any further word on the Signed, Numbered Issue #1?

    23. Creator Matt Pizzolo on December 3, 2013

      Hey Belinda- Sadly it's going to be late January/early February... but that's pretty much definite. Phew.
      The reason for this last delay is actually very cool, and we'll be letting everybody know the details next week.
      Thanks for all your patience & support.

    24. Creator Belinda Fernandez on December 3, 2013

      Are we still hoping for a December delivery date for the anthology?

    25. Creator Ryan Doherty on October 19, 2013

      Can't wait for the autographed/numbered anthology (#1-100) and autographed/numbered limited edition copy of first issue (#1-100) to arrive!

    26. Creator Matt Pizzolo on August 16, 2013

      *fingers crossed* by Xmas for the hardcover book. Working with printers now. You'll all also receive the single issue comics of 2 & 3 as a thank you for your patience and awesomeness.

    27. Creator Kevin Kairys on August 16, 2013

      I pledged $100 for a signed & numbered anthology book and a documentary dvd. When can i expect them?

    28. Creator Gary Simmons on June 18, 2013

      Got the comic today. Good job!

    29. Creator Gary Simmons on May 21, 2013

      Thanks Matt, filling it out now.

    30. Creator Matt Pizzolo on May 21, 2013

      Gary & Kris- Just posted a new update to deal with missing books. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    31. Creator Gary Simmons on May 21, 2013

      Thanks for the link, but still haven't received the floppy copy of #1. Help.

    32. Creator Kris on May 21, 2013

      Hi there - I still have not received my book. Could someone help me with this?

    33. Creator Gary Simmons on April 2, 2013

      Hello Matt,
      I sent an email but still haven't received paper copy of #1.

    34. Creator Matt Pizzolo on March 9, 2013

      Hey Kyle- when you commented last month I comment-replied asking you to email me so we could sort it out but I didn't get an email. Could you try me again please? mp at occupycomics dot com. Thanks

    35. Creator Kyle Robinson on March 9, 2013

      Hi, Mr. Pizzolo. I've sent you several emails about not receiving the book. Any updates?

    36. Creator Matt Pizzolo on February 15, 2013

      Hey Charifi- Sorry I don't see your email in my inbox. Please try me again, sometimes I get buried in emails. matt (at) occupy comics (dot) com

    37. Creator Charifi Wally on February 14, 2013

      Dear Matt, I pledged for $100 but I don't remenber if I paid the $15 more for the International Shipping (living in France).If not can you we do a paypal? By the way I havent recive my physical copies of the comics. I send you several mail but no answer. Hope you ll answer me :)

    38. Creator Matt Pizzolo on February 4, 2013

      Hey everybody- Sorry for the lack of updates. I keep wanting to announce a new timeline, but I'm reliant on a lot of other people so it's been difficult for me to assign a new date that I'm positive we can deliver on. The delays are a mix of things... mainly it's (a) artists are still delivering new contributions (and they're awesome), & (b) Alan Moore delivered us way more awesome than we could handle & it's been a ton of labor to work through all his awesomeness. So the two issues have kinda been feeding off each other... as we work on the Moore piece I extend the deadline for artists since we can't go to press yet anyway, and as more work comes in from artists we get tied up editing/organizing that instead of working on the Moore piece. But we're locking everything in now and we should have the books ready pretty soon. Again, I don't want to assign a new definite date until I'm positive we'll hit it (obviously September was a guess in the first place) but my goal is for books to be in your hands in early April (although that ultimately has a lot to do with the printer we choose, some of which have really long turnaround times for hardcover books--but I can certainly update you with revised dates once it's delivered to the printer). We all really appreciate your patience and support. And of course please always feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns here or at matt (at) occupy comics (dot) com.

    39. Creator Matt Pizzolo on February 4, 2013

      Hey Kyle- please email me at matt (at) occupy comics (dot) com so we can sort it all out. Thanks

    40. Creator Kyle Robinson on February 4, 2013

      I still haven't recieved my issue yet. I pledged $20 for :LIMITED, SIGNED & NUMBERED paper copy of the #1 issue of OCCUPY COMICS floppy book (before we collect the comics into a hardcover anthology). The first 100 copies will be numbered and SIGNED by at least one of the creators! Limited edition awesomeness.

    41. Creator Matt on January 21, 2013

      I'm curious about the physical anthology developments.

      Any idea on when that will be released?

    42. Creator Tim Pilcher on January 10, 2013

      HI Matt - Where are we at on the physical collected anthology ($50 ledge). I haven't heard anything so assumed you're running late! However, my old email died about 2 months back, so best to contact me via Kickstarter for now!

    43. Creator Matt Pizzolo on November 5, 2012

      Hey Brian- emailed you back

    44. Creator Brian McNamara on November 5, 2012

      Sent an e-mail 10 days ago about my Physical copy of #1 at the $20 donation level.

    45. Creator Matt Pizzolo on September 18, 2012

      If you haven't received your copy of Issue 1, please email me at and be sure to let me know if you didn't receive the digital or the physical and in the case of physical let me know the shipping address. Thanks everybody

    46. Creator Shawn Van Hecke on September 18, 2012

      I am also wondering about the paper copy of issue 1

    47. Creator Guillaume Boutmy on September 18, 2012

      Same as David here, I haven't received my copy yet.

    48. Creator David on September 15, 2012

      Matt, I don't know if the comic was supposed to have gone out yet but I have never received my copy yet. Could you please make sure I get one if it has already been released.

    49. Creator Fez WS on August 13, 2012

      Dear Matt, I pledged for $20 for the paper copy of the #1 issue. I realised I forgot to add up $15 for the International Shipping. Is there a way to get the physical copy with additional payment? Contact: wanhafez [at] gmail [dot] com

    50. Creator Matt on June 29, 2012

      Can the next update have photos of the work being done?

      I'm super excited!
