      Hi Matt- I have been getting rewards out to anybody who didn't receive them initially. It helps if you would email me and let me know what you haven't yet received. Thank you!

    2. Matt on September 30

      Any updates on the original art? I still haven't received anything, but it sounds like neither has anyone else.

    3. Matt Pizzolo Creator on August 30

      I'm right now going thru the comments & emails of folks who didn't receive all their rewards and filling in those gaps. I'll add you to the list and get the missing rewards your way. Apologies for the hassle.

      Hello, Has the original art been sent out? I resubmitted the survey in august, but have not received any shipments. Is there any updates. Thank you!

    5. Matt Pizzolo Creator on August 29

      It's beat up?? Oh no I'm so sorry. I tried to pack it well but I guess not well enough :( Let me know if it's in real bad shape I'll replace it for you. Sorry again for the delay

    6. Jeff Hammell on August 29

      I got it! I really didn't think I would. It's beat up but I don't even care! Thank you for coming through Matt.

    7. Mathieu Doublet on August 25

      Thank you, Matt.

    8. Matt Pizzolo Creator on August 25

      That's surprising to me. I didn't realize 2 of the 3 shipments didn't reach you. Unfortunately I can't track packages to the UK. I will immediately rectify the situation in whatever way you prefer. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    9. Mathieu Doublet on August 25

      Matt, I've sent these informations on July 2015. Since then, I've sent 8 messages without any answer. I've received floppies and that's all I've got.

    10. Matt Pizzolo Creator on August 24

      Of course Mathieu I would never deny a refund request. Go ahead and email me your info. I will gladly refund your money out of my own pocket even though I've already sent you 3 shipments from LA -> France and my understanding is you've received 2 of the 3? But I am totally happy to pay you a full refund. I want 100% customer satisfaction and I know this has been difficult and run into a lot of delays. Cheers and thank you for having supported the project.

    11. Mathieu Doublet on August 24

      Matt, I've asked repeatedtly for my pledge and without any answer from you than "I'll check", I clearly want a refund. No original art were ever sent.

    12. Jeff Hammell on August 17

      Hi! Still waiting patiently for the hardcover. My email and Kickstarter contact have not changed - can I provide a phone number or something new?

    13. Matt Pizzolo Creator on July 16

      Hi Trevor- I haven't stopped returning messages. Did you fill out the online form for deliveries? That's helped me fill in the gaps with folks who didn't receive rewards. The documentary is indeed a reward that has had its own unique problem and that particular reward hasn't shipped yet but I'm aware of the issue and we just recently came up with a solution for that which I think everybody will be into. As soon as it's definite I will check back in with an update on it (very soon). I know it's been a crazy long time and I apologize for the delay, doing the best I can. Thanks!

    14. Trevor Towers

      Does anyone know if the documentary even got made? That would go a long way to explaining why Matt has stopped returning our messages.

    15. Mathieu Doublet on May 19

      OK, I've written to the Black Mask Studios as Matt is supposed to be part of them. Every backer who's waiting for their reward should do the same ... (

    16. Mathieu Doublet on May 18

      Each month I ask for a refund and each month no answer. So I keep asking. :)
      The promised original art probably won't never see my mail box. :(

    17. Mark Slater on May 16

      And still waiting ....... Seriously, if things have fallen through and we're not actually going to get our books and DVDs, please just say so.

      Hey Matt, where are we on this? It's been months since your last post here. I've messaged you since then and you have not responded. Are we getting these rewards or not?

      Hey Matt. Can you add me to this list of backers still waiting to receive the rewards. I submitted the formstack form on August 29th 2015.

    20. Calder Fertig on January 26, 2016

      I'm another $100 backer that hasn't received the rewards that I pledged for. My name was at one point added to an online form, but I haven't heard or received anything since then. Any help would be most appreciated!

    21. Jeff Hammell on January 11, 2016

      Hi Matt. You responded using my name a few months ago. Can you give us an update? Even if the answer is that you have no more books.

      Hi Matt -

      do you have an idea when the package will arrive?

      Kirstin Brueckler on October 18, 2015

      Hey Matt, I'm sorry, but I really am frustrated by now. We exchanged PMs from 21st-24th of July in which you stated you're "going to try and get through all the messed up shipments this coming week". Since I haven't heard anything back since then, I wrote another PM about a month ago inquiring if you have found my parcel. I got no response. I really would like to know if you found it, if you're still sorting it out or what. Please respond. Thanks.

    26. Matt Pizzolo Creator on September 26, 2015

      Hey Trevor, Kyle, Mario & Jeff- I've got you on the list of fixes. Hoping to get it taken care of stat! Thanks for the heads up and for supporting and for all the patience!

    27. Trevor Towers
      on September 26, 2015

      Hey Matt, I've been waiting for your reply to my PM for a while now, and just checked back here, so I might as well follow up. I did receive the softcover -- I forgot about that, my mistake -- and I filled out the form for unreceived rewards on the day you sent it out. Maybe the confusion is that I needed the change my screen name from my actual name to an alias...but I've clarified that several times, also.

      Regardless, you have two PMs from me that are awaiting replies. Thanks!

    28. Kyle Robinson on September 15, 2015

      Still haven't received the book & rewards. It's been weeks since I messaged you and no response. I gave you my address. Please contact me.

      Hi -

      I didn't receive anything, and filled out the form in March… Any idea what went wrong?


    30. Jeff Hammell on July 28, 2015

      Hi Matt! I'm still waiting on my hardcover. What can I do to ensure I get it?
      Thanks a bunch!

    31. Matt Pizzolo Creator on July 24, 2015

      Hey Mark & Nicholas- Can you message me so I can get details and sort this out for you? Thanks!

    32. Nicholas Gale on July 24, 2015

      I am in the same boat. Filled the unreceived rewards from out a few months back and still have not received my signed/numbered hardback.

    33. Mark Slater on July 23, 2015

      I filled out the form in March, then again a couple of months later, but not received my hardback book or com-plimentary DVD. Any news?

    34. Matt Pizzolo Creator on July 21, 2015

      Trevor- you received the second issue only? That's really weird. Did you at least receive the softcover complete book we sent out free? Did you fill out the form I set up a couple months back for unreceived rewards? Shoot me an email and I'll get this sorted for you. Sorry for hassle.

    35. Matt Pizzolo Creator on July 21, 2015

      Hey Kyle- Did you not receive any of your rewards and you filled out the form I set up a couple months back? Email me and I can help you with a refund.

    36. Trevor Towers
      on July 21, 2015

      Has anyone actually gotten any rewards? I received the second issue (but not the first or third) upon request, but Matt Pizzolo hasn't actually responded to my questions messages in over a year.

    37. Kyle Robinson on July 17, 2015

      It's been awhile now and I haven't received the book and rewards. I would like a refund, please.

    38. Brett Danalake on March 5, 2015

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

    39. Matt Pizzolo Creator on February 9, 2015

      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.

    40. Mathieu Doublet on February 9, 2015

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

    41. Jeff Hammell on January 24, 2015

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

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

    43. Christine Tobey on November 26, 2014

      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.

    44. Jeff Hammell on November 19, 2014

      Another check-in for the hard cover. Thanks!

    45. Matt on October 15, 2014

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

    46. Jevon Archie on October 14, 2014

      Guess I'm still on the waiting list.

    47. Jeff Hammell on September 19, 2014

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

    48. Matt Pizzolo Creator 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.

      Any update on when the hardcovers should be shipping?

    50. Matt Pizzolo Creator 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.
