A quick shipping update--


Almost all the domestic (USA) books have shipped. There are a few stragglers; and still getting a couple survey replies every day or so.

A good amount of the international shipping have gone out; and I can see from the tracking that some packages to distant countries like Australia and Israel have arrived at their postal facilities already. But there has been a delay on a batch of the int'l. I've been using the USPS website to input the customs info, and print out the labels. Saves a lot of time and some costs. Unfortunately, the USPS blocked my account for a few days. A flag went up when my account, which had been use sparingly, suddenly was purchasing hundreds of postal labels. Their protocol is to assume the account was hacked until they can confirm it's the account holder doing the shipping. Actually nice to prevent fraud, but it was a hiccup.

But, back on the horse, and trying to get the rest of Int'l out before Thanksgiving here.

Also thanks to everyone who has received the book, and messaged us to let us know how much they liked it.

And to answer the oft-repeated question: Yes, we are planning more MEGALOPOLIS. That one on the spine was the not too subtle hint….

      I just received my copy in the mail today! I'm totally stoked to read it. Everything was fine packaging-wise. And the head sketch I commissioned from Jim is fantastic! I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out! I hope you guys read this message. Thanks for all your hard work and Happy Holidays!

      I have my book! My mailman is such a tease - he managed to wedge it in my apartment mailbox, but I couldn't get it past the hinges on my side. The next day he properly put it in the package area & put the keys in my box, and my book was none-the-worse for my earlier attempts. I enjoyed it immensely. Thank you for a beautiful, enjoyable book.

    19. Jonathan Tan Si-Hao on November 29, 2013

      I've just got my copy here in sunny Singapore. Other than some damage to the corner of the hardcover the book is fine. No idea how it can be damaged as the packaging looks secure enough. Looking forward to a great read and hopefully a sequel.

    20. mrfatso ~ Defender of The Goat on November 28, 2013

      Just received mine copy last night. Will read them as soon as i can and thanks :)

      Mine arrived today (in Australia) and I just read it and I loved every second. The art is amazing, the story is genuinely creepy, I adore Mina. Beautiful job, cannot wait to support the sequel!

    23. Todd Erwin on November 27, 2013

      Read it all late last night. Amazing. Glad to here there will be more.

    27. William Springer on November 26, 2013

      My copy had some damaged pages (which is odd, since it certainly couldn't have happened in shipping the way the book was packaged) but it didn't affect readability and I quite enjoyed the story.

    28. Daniel Kekaiola Kauwe on November 26, 2013

      i don't know whether to scream or cry or what to this news.../

    32. Brock Gerrard on November 26, 2013

      Um...I live in Canada and I haven't received my book yet should I be concerned?

    33. Kinnon Paterson on November 26, 2013

      Just finished reading this kickstarter update when the postman rang the doorbell with the package. Now that's service! 8¬) Just need to get a cuppa brewed, and then get my feet up by the fire to give it due reading attention, but I'm very much looking forward to it. Thank you once again from American Werewolf country here in North Yorkshire UK.

      The Story was Great! I enjoyed all of the interludes and the completeness of it. There were a few questions and the writing makes me want some more, but there is still a reasonable finish to the episode which is all I truly require.

      Bravo, and well done. You have a subscriber for as long as I am able.

    39. Prelude2Cinema on November 25, 2013

      GOT MY BOOK. OK, been busy writing a new TV series so I have not read it yet, but I wanted to thank you for following through on your Promise!

    42. Jeffrey D. Pegues on November 25, 2013

      I've been really busy but I got mine and love it. And more in the future. Yes.

    43. Martin Wendel on November 25, 2013

      Are you down to the W's? I'm still waiting for mine. :)

    44. Ruben Garcia Mohedano on November 25, 2013

      All Australian packages have been delivered? I still haven't received mine :'(

    45. Chachie Hood on November 25, 2013

      I've been meaning to tell y'all that I have received the book last week and loved it. Since then I have loaned it out a couple of times. Thank you for creating a rich and detailed world with complex characters. Leaving Megalopolis has everything I look for in a comic. I cannot express enough how much I have enjoyed your work and how proud I feel to have had a (small) hand in this project. Thanks again!

    46. Matthew Campbell on November 25, 2013

      It's great to hear that you're planning more.

      I really liked that you managed to swing between the tropes of a zombie story (the greatest danger comes from other survivors) and something more unique to your setting (nope, the greatest danger comes from the evil heroes after all).

      I wonder if the next volume will answer a question that struck me... what happened to all of Megalopolis's super_villains_?

      Got my copy last week and IMMEDIATELY read through it. Great stuff. Very compelling, but also very grim. The book was everything I could have hoped for. Thanks very much to all y'all that put it together.

    48. Chris Heard on November 25, 2013

      Any update on the digital distribution? Did I miss an announcement?

    49. Mark Brenner on November 25, 2013
