He used to have a linked in profile as well. For the past couple of years I would send him a message reminding him of the $49 he owes me for failing to complete his projects that I had backed. I did receive 1 out of 3 projects that I had backed. Sensory Distortion was the only one I received. I ended up trading it in at a Half Price Books because it made me sick every time I looked at it because of how he screwed over his backers. Apparently now he is a solo marketing consultant: http://jessegrillo.com/
Wasted your talents and wasted my money and time! 3 years! F.off
Agreed. Turned out to be a scam.
Victor how are these comments funny? These people believed in this project and funded it. They, including myself, assumed we would get to see a finished project. I'm out 200. No problem, I will get it back.
My first scam on Kickstarter. 40$ wasted.
So the guy who can't deliver on his Kickstarters has started a company showing people how to Kickstart. How messed up is that?
all these comments are funny. good stuff.
Really just disappointing.
No updates in what? Nearly a year. Glad the new policies so this from happening anymore
Ah, I was really looking forward to this comic..... I've been super busy so fallen behind on checking stuff I'd backed...... Apparently this is not looking too great...
Do the right thing.
I didn´t get anything this is really a great shit.....
So his Facebook page has disappeared. That's never a good sign.
Try contacting him directly I guess. Kickstarter itself doesn't have a "refund" policy. I've gotten refunds in the past from some projects but those have always been through the artist.
What steps do I take for getting a refund? Or did I miss that opportunity?
I thought if I stuck it out for a few months something would happen. But now I really want a refund...
Anyone from Washington? You may try to put in a complaint with the Washington State Attorney General. They already have a lawsuit against another kick starter project..
"All of you will receive Patriot #3 within the next 2 weeks... Please, have a little more faith in us." -Bleeding Ink, Nov 7 2013.
What happened to that?
I for one will never ever pledge for another one of your projects ever again and will do all I can to discourage others. Not even going to read the comics that have been sent out by you. Honestly guys, I don't think producing comics is for you. Missed date after missed date, promise after promise. Is this how you treat your fans? Don't promise what you cannot deliver.
*i incorrectly posted that the quote was from 2012. It was actually from 2013.
This is so sad... I was really looking forward to read the whole Blackwood, the first issue seemed promising...
Basically the guy on Facebook said he was quitting comics and the books would most likely be unfinished. Then two days later he took it back and said the books would be finished but would take awhile. The fact that he made the announcement on Facebook were he could delete comments he didn't like and not here make me suspicious. He deleted half the conversations that weren't going his way including the original announcement. Luckily Bleeding Cool saved the announcement.
When will we be getting our comics? From the last update in July it was stated a months time for the books to be finished. It's been almost 2 months now and no sign of anything. Any updates? Also what's this about a refund?
Bummer that we won't get to read this comic. I was really looking forward to it. Thanks to Con Artist Entertainment for the comics, though! Make sure to watch for any future Kickstarters by those guys.
Wow...I gotta stop wasting my money on kickstarter projects. too many projects not getting fulfilled. Hopefully he makes good on his word and does refunds.
This is actually quite sad. I was really looking forward to Blackwood. ;(
A bit of background info about this. I'd have appreciated reading this in a Kickstarter update or at least in this comment section...
More crowdfunded comic book publishers are joining in! Check out what ex-backers of canceled Bleeding Ink projects can pick up for free!
So did you get burned by the fall of Bleeding Ink Productions? Well Martin Dunn of Con Artist Entertainmentwants to make it up to you! He wants to give everyone who backed one of Bleeding Ink's cancelled projects a FREE PDF of his comic book Joshua Black (successfully funded through Kickstarter).
Joshua Black is a dark comedy/fantasy series that follows a reluctant teenage deity, who inherits the throne of Heaven. Just e-mail Martin at email@example.com, let him know which project you contributed to and he'll get the comic out to you ASAP!
I understand that life happens ... things get in the way ... but seriously?!!!
Status? Are we going to get this soon?
Not gonna lie, i'm getting irritated with the lack of updates
As long as there are updates I'm happy I have had too many kickstarter projects go dark and not get updated for months. Any guess on when the graphic novel will ship would be shipped?
Okay all, I understand that there are some serious concerns about the project. We are working to get all the rewards out to each back as soon as we can. The main issue we have right now is that our lettering artist back out due to some family issues so we had to find another artist. We have one ready to go so that is the good news. the bad new is that we are still behind on the comic.
For now if you can please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your concerns we can give you an individual update on your rewards.
can you update on rewards?
Any update on the rewards?
This smells eerily familiar.
Sorry for the delay everyone, we are currently in a slurry of both work and personal issues which we had to address. We will be sending out a full detail update in the next day or so to make sure we are clear on our pace and progress. Thank you all for your support and again we apologies for the delay as well as the lack of communication.
Its been a month and a half, any updates for us?
I know you guys are busy and all, but can you say whether it will be ready before April? Or May?
Any update on the status?
Looking forward to this one. Will it be out this month or maybe next? Can't remember if I filled out a survey or not.
So happy to see that you've reached your goal! :) CONGRATULATIONS!
Congratulations! Awesome work, look forward to the finished product!
Ok sorry i never got that message. Thanks
Congratulations! Artwork looks great.
Congratulations on funding...it's a great project. Am curious what the difference in the $19 pledge and the $30 pledge is. Seem like the same reward but $30 gets you a vote?
Really happy this project is funded !! I have appreciated all your generous downloads, and am very eager to receive the graphic novel ! I'll be on the look out for your futur projects :-))
Glad that the project was funded! Looking forward to getting my copy of the graphic novel and of the Kreatureifica book!
Have a total of $55 now for the $22 level plus the $18 level plus $10 for shipping and $5 as tip.
Nope. The reward covers all shipping costs. You're more than welcome to add a few dollars if you would like to help with shipping. For a few of the rewards we're not going to be making much beyond what it costs to produce.
