      Everything is gorgeous. The book is amazing, and all the extras are just incredible. My coworkers were gushing about the posters. The commission piece is so much nicer than I could have reasonably expected. So many thanks!

    16. Creator campbell mcgrouther on June 14, 2013

      Thanks so much for the book! It's so beautiful. I really enjoyed the story and the art work. It rings the same dark bells for m, that Lovecraft does. Though, a little less sinister. Thanks again!

    17. Creator ObscurePublishing on June 13, 2013

    25. Creator Linus Josephson on June 4, 2013

      Is there any way to increase the pledge after the funding? I just realized that my $5 pledge isn't enough to get access to the digital comic -_-

    26. Creator Joshua Hassell on June 3, 2013

      I was just going to ask, do you guys have a timeline for when all the orders will be shipped? I was wondering when I'd be getting my stuff...

    27. Creator Lee Alley on June 3, 2013

      Just got my gorgeous book today!

    28. Creator Crimsy on May 5, 2013

      Just got my postcard at work today here in warm Bahrain. I love it! The main reason I backed this book is the beautiful use of stark shadows, page design and composition, which is evident in the postcard.

      I'd love if you made an update to this project once you're ready to Kickstart a new book to ensure that myself and other interested individuals don't miss out.

      Thanks, and I look forward to receiving the book.

    29. Creator sami okan soylu on April 20, 2013

    34. Creator Félix Marqués on April 9, 2013

      Thanks for the quick response!

    41. Creator Mike Mccubbins and Matt Bryan on March 11, 2013


      Definitely on the inside.

    42. Creator self1sch on March 11, 2013

      Hey guys, just wanted to know if you sign the book on the cover or on the inside? I would prefer the second one...

    43. Creator Gilbert Lugo on March 10, 2013

      Cool, thanks for the quick response!

    44. Creator Mike Mccubbins and Matt Bryan on March 10, 2013


      Yes the sketch comes with the $15 reward if you want it.

      We've started in with the original art picking already and we're nearly half way down the list. Hopefully we'll be getting to you soon.

    45. Creator Gilbert Lugo on March 10, 2013

      A couple of questions: 1) My pledge didn't include a sketch, but you asked if you should sketch in the book? Is that just a freebie? 2) Is the original art selection going to take place at a later date?

    46. Creator Julia on March 10, 2013

      Oh man oh man. It was so hard to choose which colour poster I wanted.

      So excited!

    47. Creator mazkeng on March 8, 2013
