Art of Brom Shipping Update

Hi, everyone,

Here's the latest update on The Art of Brom shipping.

As of today, we've finished shipping out the few remaining international packages. Most of these were the twelve artist combination packages going overseas. Thanks so much for your patience as we have been working around the clock to fulfill your rewards. It took seven of us nearly three weeks to get everything out!

We expect the international rewards (500 packages) to begin arriving next week. We're anxious to hear from our international friends when you get them.

This isn’t over until you all have your books! If you have any questions or concerns please send us a message through the "contact me" option in the "project by" section on the home page of our Kickstarter campaign. And please be patient as it may take a day or two for us to get back to you over the next two weeks. We are packing for Comic-Con in San Diego and will be on the road until July 23rd. But we will get back to you and take care of you.

Speaking of Comic-Con, Brom will be signing at the Flesk Publications booth #5019 all five days. And we have a Flesk panel on Thursday July 18, 2013 10:00am – 11:00am in room 32AB. We will both be there to talk about future Brom, Flesk and Spectrum projects.

Thanks again, everyone! You have all been amazing.

John Flesk and Brom


Update #26

The Art of Brom Kickstarter Shipping Update

Greetings, everyone,

We have shipped out 99% of The Art of Brom Kickstarter rewards. 449 International packages were shipped last Monday. The final tier we are processing is the Artist Combination packages being sent international. (There are 12 of you.) These will go out very soon and we appreciate your patience as we securely bundle and double box these unique high-end rewards.

There are approximately 50 remaining packages that are on hold. This applies only to a small group of you that have been notified, yet we haven't heard back from you yet. We are waiting for either:
1) The shipping address since the survey and our follow up email inquiries have not been answered, or:
2) The International shipping fee was not paid and we are waiting for payment.
Again, we have sent emails out to those affected. We will keep these packages in a safe spot and will ship them out as soon as we hear from those that this applies to.

We have received a tremendous amount of praise and positive comments on our Kickstarter page, and seen more of the same on Brom's Facebook page, as well as on other locations on the internet. Thank you so much. We appreciate reading all of the feedback and the time that you took to post. This has been a thrilling experience and it couldn't have happened without each and every one of you.

Comic-Con International in San Diego, July 17-21.
Brom will be signing at the Flesk booth #5019 all 5 days of the show. We hope to get the chance to see many of you to personally thank you for your support. We have a Flesk panel on Thursday, July 18 at 10:00a.m. that Brom and John will attending. See you then!

With our gratitude,

Brom and John Flesk
