We have some really great news...
We've officially set a HARD DEADLINE for JULY 1st, for ALL DRAWING BLOOD work, which will give us just enough time to print and have some copies to proudly carry around with us at SAN DIEGO COMIC CON!
The deadline is real!
If you've been following @BISHART, @Meanwhile.Studios or @DRAWINGBLOODCOMIC on Instagram, you know how hard we've been cranking to make this happen! David and Kevin are hard at work too, but they don't openly gripe about it like me and Troy. :)
All kidding aside, this thing is looking AMAZING, and we are so happy you'll all be seeing it in only a few short months. It will be worth every single early morning and late night and icy hot back patch.
Over the SDCC weekend we will hopefully be signing tons and tons of books and getting them prepped to ship out to all you backers right after the show. We have to work out the details of that since we're all a bit spread out, but I do know that shipping will begin as soon as the books are in. It's important to us that YOU, the people who made this book possible get your books first, so while they will be ready for SDCC, we assure you we won't be openly selling any there. let us know below if you ARE coming to the show though, and maybe we can hand you a copy in person.
Also, expect your BACKER SURVEY soon!
We're working on refining all the questions now, and finding the best post campaign 3rd party Backerkit, type company to use for add ons and what now, but it's coming soon!
This has been quite the journey, and there is still a ton of work to be done, but with the FIRM deadline in place, it's an exciting rush to the finish line. We know you're going to love the books and are grateful for your support and patience as we put together the absolute best product we could for you.
Because today is a milestone day of celebration... I'm also proud to present the VERY FIRST full color TEAM shot of SHANE BOOKMAN'S RADICALLY REARRANGED RONIN RAGDOLLS! From left to right, meet MIYAZAKI, TEZUKA and OTOMO (the angry one)!
That's all for now everyone, back to the desk! I have to do another page before I can treat myself to dinner and sleep!
-Ben and the whole DRAWING BLOOD team.
