      The survey was sent out to everyone in the $30 bracket and it looks like you never even bothered to fill it out. On your information it says 'Survey Sent' and it was sent out to everyone in your backer level. After 42 updates? Send me an email with your PayPal address at I'm sure I'll have to wait 4 years to get that.

      Thanks for sending project update #42! and reminding me that after backing this project in "September 2012" (with $30.00) i actually never received the copy nor a survey or personal message to explain why - It's been 4+ years now, not so chique imo

      Hi, Samantha. It's been outlined but it hasn't officially been started. The sequel would be called 'Sullivan's Samurai' and has the remaining players returning the sword that Cornell found in Malice to it's rightful place in Japan where they battle Yokai and Japanese Monsters. Maybe in a couple years. Most likely I'll license Sluggers to another company and have a new team take the reigns.

      I thought I read that their might be a sequel of sorts - maybe a different setting or something. Is this the case?

      Thank you, Hans. I checked online and the rest of the books for Europe have shipped or are in transit. After that I'll post another call for anyone anywhere who hasn't recieved their books and then call it finished.

      Dabambz, you should have received an e-mail a while ago requesting a new address. Canada shipped early this year. I can get your book out with this next group that's shipping, or give you a refund as well. This is my e-mail address I'll contact you as well.

      Thanks, Ronnie. Shipping the batch for the rest of Europe in the next few days. Then I just have to sort through some of the larger orders with shirts that were international.

    13. Ronnie M on October 25, 2014

      @Mark - I'm impressed that you keep chugging away at these. I think a lot of other people would have given up a long time ago. I think you made something to be proud of here.

      $3000 in refunds went out in January for Sullivan's Sluggers.

      In February we shipped to Canada.

      In March we shipped Australia.

      In April and May we shipped for the UK.

      As of now there are 150 out of 600 international books remaining to be shipped or refunded. A lot of progress has been made.

      I am sorry about the delay, and with a 3.5 lb book the price of shipping and production in most cases was more than the amounts pledged for international. I really set out to do something generous with the size upgrade and the quality of the book, and apologize for those of you who have had to wait longer.

      If you are in the US and didn't fill out the survey please e-mail me and I'll get your book to you. If you are in Canada, Australia, or the UK and have not received your book please e-mail me at

      Just got my copy. I've got to say, it looks amazing! It came to my work place and several non-comic nerds were amazed by it. Thanks for sticking with it, Mark. It's well worth it.

      Igor on March 17, 2014

      Finally I got hands on my copy of the comicbook and it's really awesome!
      It took almost 2 years for the book to get to me due to international orders problem, but Mark was extremely helpful and I was able to get my book via a friend in US.
      Many thanks! Keep up the good work!

    27. Matt Zitron on March 12, 2014

      I emailled and he's refunded me my pledge.

      I'd have preferred the book, but at least he did that.

      So... from what I gathered from the comments below, if we are outside of Canada we won't be getting the books and t-shirt now (Singapore)? And should ask for refunds? Please advice. Thanks!

      Thanks Dominic, I e-mailed him asking if/when international shipping (France for me) would be done and here is his (very fast by the way) answer:

      "We shipped for Canada this past week, but I think it will be easier and faster to refund you. Sullivan's Sluggers was picked up by Diamond Comics, and you should be able to have your local comic book shop order the book for you. Because of the size and weight increase the international shipping costs came to more than people pledged for the book with the exception of Canada.

      Please let me know your e-mail address for paypal and I can send you a refund."

      I then asked for refund and he sent it very fastly.

      Just tried the e-mail address for Mark. I'm in the UK, still no book, hoping for a refund as I've walked past this book every Wednesday at GOSH when I pick up my comics..... I'll update if I have any joy (not holding my breath!).

      mathias on February 13, 2014

      Hey, I had some email contact with the one handling international orders around two months before christmas, and he asked me about my shipping address etc and said the book would be sent out, unfortunately I can't seem to find the emails, so I ventured here in order to hope to get into contact with someone.

    35. PSenay on January 30, 2014

      Canadian backer here, just got my book today.
      I can certainly see how shipping became inflated, as it was packaged nicely in a heavy duty parcel. I had previously offered to pay the extra, but heard nothing back until a few days ago when Mark emailed me asking if my address was still the same. After a quick reply, I got the book today. Long wait, but the book looks great.

      Too bad this all had to go so sour. Communication is key!

      Does anyone know if the book being sold through diamond is the same as the kickstarter one (hardcover omnibus size with monster gatefold and slipcase cover + bound ribbon) and if it'll come with the sheet of 6 player cards? despite everything I still really want this book

    41. Miles Harris on January 23, 2014

      I never thought I would see the day, but finally received my copy yesterday. Looks great, looking forward to reading it at the weekend. What a wait this turned out to be, I hope it's finally all worth it when I read it!

    42. Fireflew on January 21, 2014

      I just received a PM from Mark, I'm not sure if everyone received this message or not but just in case I'll copy it here:

      "Happy New Year.

      This this Mark and I'm refunding international for Sullivan's Sluggers. Could you please let me know your paypal e-mail address, so that I can get your refund to you. E-mail me at

      Sullivan's Sluggers was picked up by Diamond Distributors and you should be able to buy it and order it from a local comic shop. In most cases with the size upgrade on the book, the costs to ship are more, or in many cases almost double the amounts pledged.

      I apologize for any inconvenience.


    43. Fireflew on January 21, 2014

      Can we PLEASE have an update of any kind! Just to know that you still exist and havn't vanished off the face of the earth. Everyone (including me) is getting very frustrated with the lack of information over the past several months... Are you any closer to getting the final books shipped? What is the status?!

      The books are now available at retail in Sydney. Is there any chance of actually getting my books or is my only hope of owning a physical copy if I go buy one at retail?

    47. Billy Posters on January 12, 2014

      Hey Mark,

      What's the latest update? Surely you have a list of all backers worldwide. Can you give a rough estimate on when we can get the book?

      I'm still waiting here in Sydney, Australia.

    48. Chris Helman on January 11, 2014

      Still waiting in the UK also. Its a shame that this 1 guy has ruined my first and now last kickstarter experience.

    49. Dan Howard on January 11, 2014

      Still waiting in the UK. Contacted Mark months ago to inform of a change of address but got no reply so who's to say if it'll get to me even if he has posted it?
