      I feel sorry for the crayon drawing guys. 4 years! Holy Molly!

    4. Martin Ritchie on February 23

      Hi Rich, Thanks for the update. You are doing great. Love your work.

      Any chance for an update, even if it's I got 1% of one thing worked on? Just to know the Kickstarter is still in your mind. August '15 to Feb '16 is a long time between updates.

    6. Spencer Nelson on February 14

      yeah...know he's probably still swamped though

    7. Christopher Moss on January 25

      So just out of curiosity, anyone else still waiting for their reward?

    8. Jason on January 19

      I just realized that is the same list I posted in May of last year. Well, plus one wall paper. Aside from base pledges, which some have not yet received, this is what we have received in roughly 4 years:

      x wall papers (6/10)
      x monster minis spring pdf
      x monster minis summer pdf
      x haleo and julelan pdf
      x uncivil servant - belkar backer1 pdf
      x spoiler alert - therkla backer2 pdf

    9. Jason on January 19

      still waiting for:

      monster minis autumn pdf
      monster minis winter pdf
      how the paladin got his scar - o-chul pdf
      julio scoundrel pdf
      dim sun pdf
      sir francios pdf
      cliffport police backer3 pdf

      Lee Ann - Post a picture of your crayon drawing in the OOTS forum....I posted mine

    13. Christian Steudtner on December 25

      @Lee Ann Rucker: What an awesome Christmas present! :-)

      *Totally unrelated*: I just can't resist to link to the Kickstarter Reward Collection on the forum:…

    14. Lee Ann Rucker on December 25

      Just got my Whole Story and Box of Crayon! And it's awesome!

    15. Derek Tucker on December 22

      It has been a long time since the update. And a long time since any progress on promised rewards. Especially considering how well this project was funded, I expect more than what has been delivered so far and am beginning to be disappointed in Rich Burlew's follow through on his promises. I might feel differently if the comic was updated more regularly. But even that is sporadic. Please, Rich, step up and do what you promised. And give us an update.

      It's been awhile, it'd be great to get an update even if it's a minor one.

    17. James Burtram on August 29, 2015

      The PDF's are great. I got mine already. I hope you end up doing the rest of the books. How would we go about getting them signed though?

    18. Robert on August 28, 2015

      Happy 1000th comic! Way to go, Rich!

      Hi Stormquiss, seems great! May I suggest that you could share it with the forum community in ChristianSt 's wonderful thread?…

    20. Stormquiss on August 3, 2015

      Huzzah! My crayon drawing arrived today and I couldn't be happier - a nice reversal of the damsel in distress trope - Elan is tied to a tree guarded by a dragon and Haley is coming to the rescue in her usual direct (ie arrow firing) fashion. Fantastic. Thanks Rich. Well worth the wait.

    21. Zach Haugen on June 30, 2015

      Reading the new book and love it. :) Would love a story more about Enor and Gannji!

      Yesh, it is pretty damn cool that that is all are waiting for, and that he has done so very much while still keeping up with the online comics :)

    25. Jason on May 12, 2015

      julio scoundrel pdf
      dim sun pdf
      sir francios pdf

      @christian. *looks around sheepishly* well... Don't I feel like a fool! :p In all seriousness thanks for the reminder about the workometer. :)

    27. Christian Steudtner on May 8, 2015

      You could just look at the last Workometer to see that spring/summer are completed and autumn has started to being made.

      I can't seem to remeber, or find, how many "monster for every seasons" there are out at the moment. Is it just spring and summer?

    29. Christian Steudtner on May 5, 2015

      It Kinari: I don't think Rich has any control about whether a backer is receiving updates via mail or not. If your settings are correct (i.e notifications on for the email address you expect them on) and you still don't get them, you should contact Kickstarter/your email provider about it.

    30. Missing avatar

      theangelJean on May 4, 2015

      Kinari, try checking your notification settings? Under "Me" in the top right corner of the page, the Notifications page in the drop down menu has a section for "Projects You Back" which allows you to change settings for each project individually.

      Hey Rich, thank you so much for your amazing work so far! Just wondering, what should we do if we stop receiving update emails? I never unsubscribed nor have I changed my email but I haven't gotten anything since Update #65 for some reason. I totally didn't realize this until today when a friend mentioned the Therkla PDF, which I never saw. I've checked my spam and trash and I don't see anything. Is there any way to get back on the email list? Thanks!

    32. Mikael Hansson on April 28, 2015

      yay! for updates. I have just started a RPG using the paper miniatures, and they where immensely popular!
      Would love to have more of them for characters

    33. Christian Steudtner on April 27, 2015

      Thanks for the warning! ;-)

      I sincerely appreciate even the smallest update.

    34. Creator Rich Burlew on April 27, 2015

      Hey guys--

      This is a mini-update about when the next update is coming. I have a few more crayon drawings that I want to get to the post office, and I have a wallpaper partially finished that I need to completely finish. Probably not this week, but maybe next week if all goes well.


    35. Sarah Vee on April 7, 2015

      @Steve Ames - looks like the project you linked to (and another by the same creator) has been canceled/deleted...

    36. Steve Ames on April 6, 2015

      Mr Burlew,… is using art from your Kickstarter, the thanks for pledging. Wasn't sure if you gave permission this is the only way I know to maybe let you know. If anyone sees this and has a more direct line to you, I hope they'll pass it on.

    37. Christian Steudtner on March 7, 2015

      Since another wave of Stick it's seems to be going out, I just wanted to make a plug for the reward collection at the forum (… ). We already have one new-art family portrait, but I would love to see more (and hopefully see even more Crayon Drawings).

    38. Katharine Blackwell on March 2, 2015

      Woke up this morning to find my Stick It to My Family portrait in my inbox. Based on new photographs I sent in right after the last updated. It's so fantastic I almost cried. Well worth the wait.

    39. Jeff Whaley on February 28, 2015

      Wow. Just wow.
      The Therkla story TOTALLY delivered and then some.

      Thanks Rich.

      OK...the update certainly quite welcome. Thanks Rich!

      You're not the only one having problems. I'm going to try redownloading.

    44. CapnBludd on February 19, 2015

      After searching I found a copy on an old thumb drive, yay! I still don't get why the zip password wouldn't work though...

    45. CapnBludd on February 19, 2015

      Just saw the new update and downloaded it, and while looking at my downloads I wanted to read Haleo and Julian again but all I have is the zip and the password won't work even though I'm copy/pasting it right from Update #61 For backers only. 8'(

    46. Albey Amakiir on February 19, 2015

      I still believe it will all get done. And I'll be happy for it. And while I wait, I'll forget about it and have fun with other things. Yeah, it's taking longer than expected. But I still 100% believe everything will be done eventually. In the meantime, I'll get distracted by all the other cool stuff out there.
