PROVIDENCE - The Art Book and Complete Slipcase Set Update

Thanks again to everyone for their fantastic support of Dreadful Beauty! The book is now all wrapped and off to press, and should be shipping to us in early November. Once we have copies of that hardcover back from the printer, we can get the set slipcases finalized. We are using a heavier weight of stock on these slipcases than we did on Uber, due to the far greater weight of the hardcovers. But we need to have the exact physical books in hand for a perfect fit for the mold. We don't want things to shift, slide, or ding, so it needs to be snug. Then the slipcases can print, which is done right here in the USA, so it will only add a few weeks. All the signature sheets are already done and tipped in, so no delays on that front.

Those are the last parts we need, then the task of packaging begins. No way around it, that is a huge task for all the orders. We don't cut corners on shipping and use extra thick boxes and corner padding to make sure your set arrives safely and without damage. But for almost 700 orders, that is a large task. We will start assembly in December as the slipcases arrive, but between the holiday mail delays that always occur, and the volume of packaging we need to do, it probably makes the most sense to begin shipping out in January. Not the greatest news, we know, but we would rather be realistic with the time frame than give false hope at this point. We're close, but just not quite there. One last note, the slipcase sets are not being offered anywhere mass market, so you will not see them turn up on Amazon before you get yours. 

Your orders will be entered with Comic Cavalcade for processing, and the digital items in each order will be filling, including Dreadful Beauty, later in the month of October. As that happens, you'll get a confirmation email from Comic Cavalcade and a link to download all your digital items. Most of you already have accounts there, so that order will be able to be seen with all your others. 

Thanks again for your support, patience, and if you have any questions about your specific order, please send us a direct message so we are sure to see it and will reply ASAP.

      Nick - We won't have the art book back from the printers until November. For the orders of the art book ONLY, not those with the slipcase, we will begin shipping once we have them in Nov. Thanks!

      Will orders of just the physical copy of the art book be shipped out before slipcase orders in January? From your post it sounds like it will, but the wording made it seem like only the digital copies of the art book will go out in October. Thank you for your time.
