      @Kedra - We'll post in the update section for news on the conclusion of the Message from Mars series. To summarize what we've been able to say so far; No it's not cancelled, Yes, all five issues will be finished, No, we can't yet say when they will be released, Yes, it is currently being worked on.

      Hope this helps :)

      Just now seeing the article about the delay. My condolences to the member of your art team. Hopefully things improve for their family. Kuddos for supporting your teammate during such a difficult time.

      Will updates be announced via the comments page? I noticed the article about the delay wasn't posted in the updates section. Just trying to stay up-to-date on what's going on.

      @Nexnecis - hopefully soon. We need to finalize a few things to show to Kikuchi-san first.

      @Matt - We'll have an announcement when we have a bit more finished. We want to give something substantial, not an eyedropper bit of "working on it."

      When's the 2nd issue coming out? It's been a while.

      @Sophie - We've gotten plenty of interest in seeing the series finished, that hasn't been what's held things up. Hope you had fun at Phoenix ComicCon!

      @Peter - We're working on finalizing the details for the artwork for the remaining four issues. No idea where someone came up with the June 28th date, but not from us.

      We learned a lot from our first step into comic book publishing. As such, we're trying to not repeat any mistakes, so we're holding off on any announcements for a little longer. As soon as we feel it's all ready, we'll let everyone know what the plans are for finishing the Message from Mars series.

      Although web search apparently says June 28, 2017 date for issue #2?

      Received my copy some time ago(3 or 4 months ago?). Enjoyed it. Kinda bummed to hear that issue 2 is basically indefinitely delayed. Would certainly back another Kickstarter for more of the comic.

      Hey I was going to gather incoming issues thru one of my local shops and they told me that the series had been cancelled through Diamond? They think it's no longer a viable product? If the issues are postponed when are they expected to come out?

      @Elizabeth, I'm in the UK and haven't received tracking info. It was said last week that the packages had reached the EU and would be going out soon. I don't think we need to worry yet!

    40. Elizabeth Wright on February 17, 2017

      I'm getting a bit worried now, it's been 3 weeks and I have not received tracking info. Hey, has any other UK backers got a tracking info.

      @Scott - It might be possible, but not sure it's something we can promise. Could you please send an email to contact@vhdtheseries.com with this request and the number on your pendant?

      Scott Watkins on February 12, 2017

      Question: what is the likelihood of receiving the hat brooch with the matching production number as the pendant?

      For example, if I got number 13/100 on the pendant, would I be getting 13/200 on the brooch?

      Hi, sadly still not received anything yet, nor the tracking information, I have been checking my spam mail too. Would I be expecting a much longer wait being in the UK?
