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.
Thanks Mark Andrew Smith, from a backer in Alkmaar, The Netherlands!
Received my copy today and it is absolutely gorgious. Respect to you for following up on this project! Thanks again!

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 Mandrewsmith@gmail.com 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.
Candian backer here. Anyword on when my book is coming or should I just opt for a refund?
@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.
Got my two copies, look great. Thank you!
I'm trying to get the remaining books for Canada, Australia, and the UK out by the end of this month. Zade give me a message and I'll refund you, Mandrewsmith@gmail.com
still no book and t-shirt,didn't ship to the UK after giving all detail again,just delaying tactics.told mark he's let down future comic projects by others because I've stopped
Any news????? I'm in Canada , I received an email a few months ago asking for phone number for shipping but still nothing.
So , what's happening? Any news on shipping, refunding etc?
I sent you an email requesting a shipment(we had a previous conversation back in april but until now i had the oportunity to reply).
Hope you can see my mail.
Most of the NZ orders were refunded. There are only two orders remaining for NZ from the $40 list.
I am in NZ. If you have any other orders for here I am happy to have them sent to me and I will courier them out to everyone else.
$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 Mandrewsmith@gmail.com
...im still waiting on the book..
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.
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!
I emailled Mandrewsmith@gmail.com 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!
Got mine in Ottawa, Canada! Thanks!
Got my book today(Quebec Canada) Thank you :D
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.
Refund received! I recommend contacting Mark at Mandrewsmith@gmail.com.
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!).
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.
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!
Still waiting Mark.
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
@Mark, thanks for the refund.
I Emailed Mark at Mandrewsmith@gmail.com, and got my money back.
Thanks fireflew that email worked a charm, got my refund within an hour, along with a charming apology.... No wait it just said "done" that was all he said, thanks very much it was a pleasure
I got my refund
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!
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 Mandrewsmith@gmail.com
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.
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?!
Yep, me too, also a Canadian still waiting on the book, in Toronto.
Canadian still waiting on the book :(
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?
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.
Still waiting in the UK also. Its a shame that this 1 guy has ruined my first and now last kickstarter experience.
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?
Ignacio - that is a joke and the final kick in the teeth for us UK backers.
And Mark, it's been almost 3 months since the last update, do you think that's acceptable? Even if the news is there is no news, you owe it to is to keep us updated on what's happening. Maybe even explain to us how you can afford to ship the book to a comic shop in London but not to the people who paid for it over 18 months ago?
Logging in just to say that Mark got in touch via private message and already returned my money, perhaps he'll get in touch with others that asked for refunds as well.
still not received mine, in uk...
This is a joke
He is already selling in europe but we don't have our books .
Still waiting in the UK - I have just seen that Gosh Comics in London are selling it but nothing for me as yet...
Hello, Portuguese backer here and still no news on my MVP REWARD. I ordered this to me and a friend of mine and I was hoping to hear something by 2014. I still prefer to receive the 2 books of course.
After a long wait I received my book and tshirt. Thank you to Mark and his team for stepping up and getting my stuff shipped out to the UK. It was frustrating at times not knowing what was going on but it was worth the wait. Both the book and tshirt are fantastic quality. All I can say to people still waiting is be patient, it was a massive mistake that Mark is slowly putting right. The book is awesome.
