Hey Dear Readers!
I'm very pleased to announce that Iron Circus Comics will be handling both the publishing and the reward fulfillment for this project, and everything is proceeding along much quicker with their much-needed assistance. The boss at ICC has asked me if I'd post the following message from her, regarding their plan:
Hello, everyone! I'm C. Spike Trotman. Dean's been kind enough to allow me some space on his project page to make this announcement.
I run Iron Circus Comics, and I'll be handling the printing and distribution of Something Terrible. I've been talking to Dean about this for awhile, and we've just recently come to the conclusion Something Terrible and its backers would be best served if Iron Circus took over production.
Iron Circus will be in charge of fulfilling physical pre-orders for Something Terrible, and Something Terrible only. Bonus material such as commissions, posters, bookmarks, stickers, and so forth are still up to Dean. However, I do plan to adhere to the announced stretch goals associated with the book, such as the hardcover upgrade.
This is going to take us a little time to figure out, but I've run eight Kickstarters of my own, with six successfully fulfilled and two in the midst of production as we speak.
Something Terrible is an important book, and it needs to be out there where people can find it; bookstores, libraries, comic shops. I want every backer to leave this project with what they ordered, and I want to do my part to make sure this happens.
I'll try to keep you folks updated with where we are in production, without cluttering your inbox.
Thank you so, so much for your continuing patience. I promise, your books are in good hands.
I'm incredibly grateful to Spike for her help bringing this project to completion for all of you and all of the folks who haven't read ST yet. Thanks as always for backing this project, and I appreciate your many kind messages along the way.
As a side note, I spoke to Tyler Flowers for the Do A Thing YouTube channel a few weeks ago at the shop. We talked about superheroes, making comics, and Something Terrible, and you can now see that interview here:
Have a truly wonderful holiday season, everyone! Keep your signals shining bright. :)
