Thanks so much for supporting B9! We're super excited to announce that our art book series has returned to Kickstarter with a brand new set for 2016!
The 2016 B9 collection is now available on Kickstarter featuring new books by our brand new featured artists Meredith Gran and Dustin Harbin alongside first generation B9 artists Evan Dahm & Becky Dreistadt.
If you missed out on any of the other sets, we're offering those as part of package deals to so you can fill the gaps in your collection.
Your backing in previous years has allowed us to print thousands of art books at affordable prices, exposing huge numbers of new people to the fine art of comic artists. Thank you so much for your support and we hope you enjoy the new books, which are available for pre-order now!
We just wanted to let you all know that the Spring 2013 collection is now available at our online store.
Since the Limited edition Hardcovers just shipped we aren't listing them just yet in case there are any problems with transit to the backers who supported us for the campaign.
We also wanted to let you know that we are trying out a new type of project with Benign Kingdom - the Midnite Monsters.
It is our first set of books outside these seasonal collections and we'd love to do a lot more of these types of projects.
As always, if you're a backer and you haven't received your rewards yet, and are not a backer of the limited edition hardcovers, please message us so we can look into it. Thanks!
As we reported the other week the USPS lost the signed bookplates for a while as they were making their way between creators. We finally got in the fully signed bookplates RIGHT before we had to leave for TCAF. Travel took a little longer than expected and we didn't make it home until yesterday afternoon.
We're now working on getting everything packed up and will have all tiers that included a limited bookplate edition out within a week. Thanks again for your support!
We have completed shipping with the exception of limited edition hardcovers. The limited edition hardcovers are taking more time because the postal service lost the bookplates for nearly three weeks. Just as we were just about to reprint and start from scratch they found and delivered them. They are now being worked on by the final member of the team and will soon be in our hands for processing.
What this means for everyone else is -
If you are domestic United States and you submitted your response to the kickstarter survey before April 1st you should have your books by now. If you are missing prints or other items let us know BY MESSAGING US (not commenting). We are handling any problems as they come in.
Thanks again for your support!
