1,462 backers pledged $100,219 to help bring this project to life.

Great Success for Daggers Drawn! Now to get your Reward!

Posted by Kevin Kallaugher (Creator)

I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all the backers of our Daggers Drawn Book campaign! As you know it was a great success, allowing us to created a first class publication.

I have been hard at work assembling the book. It is currently planned to be 10 x 12 inches, 192 pages, with 108 pages of color. There will be approximately 250 cartoons and covers from The Economist as well as the names of over 1400 Kickstarter backers. 

As a supporter, you will get a collector's edition of Daggers Drawn in a specially designed hard slip case. We are expecting the book to be delivered from the printers by the end of April 2013.

Now some housekeeping... you will soon get a survey from Kickstarter that will request your mailing address and other pertinent questions.

More importantly you will get a second email requesting that you join Backerkit, a post-Kickstarter fulfillment program. This will help me to help you get your reward. Using Backerkit I will be able to manage the nearly1500 different orders while allowing you to track your items, make special requests etc. 

If you would sign up it would be a great help to me.

Once again, Thanks for the great support for Daggers Drawn.

      Still received nothing from backerkit. Any idea when all the invites will be sent out?

      You already should have my contact info from Kickstarter. So why should I create *yet* another useless online account for something I will never use again? Every other project that I help fund sent a simple survey with none of this create an account nonsense.

      I can't confirm the shipping address because your backerkit expects a state to be named as part of my adress.

      You do realise states aren't something that exists in all countries, right?
      Heck, my country is smaller than some of the states in the US so it's pretty weird to be stumped with such a lack of thought from you.

      We have to wait until the Kickstarter surveys are completed by backers... should be this week!

      Thanks for your patience

      When should we expect the Backerkit email? I've gotten nothing other than the Kickstarter email thus far.

      Wait until you get a note directly from Backerkit. If you still have trouble then... get back to me and we will work things out! No problem.

      I would gladly sign up to it but the only network that I have access to has it locked out (I can't access it). Is this going to impede anying essential?
