It’s been a while since our last update, but that doesn’t mean we’ve slowed down over here at team Tesla Stormborn. In the last few weeks we have been finishing edits on the book, which has taken a little longer than expected, as well as finalizing the T-shirts and Stickers. So let’s get to the rundown of where we are in the process.

We have some good news and some bad news with a silver lining...

The Bad News: 

The book is not yet finished, which means we are slightly more delayed than we’d like to be….

But, we brought an editor onto the project to help speed along the lettering and editing process. Rem Fields has taken over the editing duty and we are excited to say that we have just completed the final draft of Tesla Stormborn. Rem will continue on as Editor as we embark on writing part 2 and 3 of Tesla Stormborn in the next year.

Rem will be launching his very own Kickstarter for a comic he wrote. Keep a lookout for it sometime early next year. You can see his work at:

As much as we would have liked to have avoided any delays. We feel the extra time spent editing really improved the book and the reading experience as a whole.

Now that we have finished the fine tuning of the script, the final lettering should be completed in the next 2-3 weeks. Then, we can send the book over to Print Ninja for proofing. Once the proof is approved by me, It should only take only 5-6 weeks to receive the books in the mail. At that point, I can begin shipping out the books and everyone’s rewards immediately!

I will keep everyone posted with any updates to this process in future backer updates.

The Good News:

New Pages! 

We added an extra page to the book! Now Tesla Stormborn is weighing in at a cool 25 pages. We originally started at 22 pages, then 24 and now, 25. We feel that the new pages really added a lot to the book as well as the overall story. The artwork on them is fantastic and we can’t wait for you guys to check it out.


 We received the funding from Kickstarter early last week which means T-Shirts and Bumper stickers have been ordered and they look great! We should have them within the month. I’m excited to finally be able to wear the shirts and stick the stickers.

Digital Download

We apologize for the delay in getting this to you, however we are excited to announce that the Digital Download of Tesla Stormborn should be ready for you all in 2-3 days! I will be posting a private backer update here with a link to download the PDF. We will then be pursuing the publishing of Tesla Stormborn Part 1 via Comixology for purchase.

Well, that just about raps up everything we have for now. Thanks for all of your patience, we really do appreciate that and we can’t thank everyone enough for making Tesla Stormborn possible!

      Thanks for the update. Extra editing and pages sound good. A small delay is not a big deal.
