      Oh, USPS, lets hope they didn't drop it into the ocean ;)
      But thanks for the reply, I'm eagerly waiting for it.

      So it's been a month just about. Have you received the hardcovers?

      Creator Richard on June 24, 2013

      Great news, thanks for the update...

    11. Bobkickstarter.small

      Creator Bobby Crosby on June 23, 2013

      Yes -- all the softcovers are now in my possession and the hardcovers are being shipped and should arrive within 10 days, and then everything will be shipped out to the backers! I'll make an update when I've received the hardcovers with a photo of the books.

      any new information?

    13. Bobkickstarter.small

      Creator Bobby Crosby on May 18, 2013

      The softcovers are printing now and should be done very soon and the hardcovers will follow soon after.

      Creator Richard on May 18, 2013

      Anything new you can share with us?
      Any idea of when they might be done printing?

    15. Image-200693-full.small

      Creator Chris S on April 29, 2013

      So, what date ARE you being told?

    16. Bobkickstarter.small

      Creator Bobby Crosby on April 12, 2013

      Everyone's having problems with the same slow printer. It's why lots of comic book Kickstarter projects are very late right now. We were all told incorrect times. My apologies again.

    17. Image-200693-full.small

      Creator Chris S on April 12, 2013

      And? Mid-April now.

    18. Image-200693-full.small

      Creator Chris S on April 3, 2013

      It's now April, any update?

    19. Bobkickstarter.small

      Creator Bobby Crosby on March 29, 2013

      Alex: UltimateGrinders is working on a new version of their site and they're waiting until that launches before posting new comics. They have many new comics waiting to go.

    20. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Alex Truetsch on March 29, 2013

      Not that we are all waiting for the books, but when will there be some new strips @UG in future? :-)

    21. Bobkickstarter.small

      Creator Bobby Crosby on March 11, 2013

      We're just waiting on the printer now. Apparently this is a very busy time for them. Thanks again for your patience and sorry for the long wait.

      Creator Zach on March 10, 2013

      Any updates on the status of this?

    23. Bobkickstarter.small

      Creator Bobby Crosby on January 28, 2013

      Yes, sorry. The printer we needed to use for the hardcovers nearly tripled their rates out of nowhere and we've been struggling to find a decent alternative for a while. We finally found one and we'll be going to print as soon as we re-format the pages for the size that this printer requires, which we should have done within a week -- at which point we'll send out all the digital downloads as well. Apologies again and thank you for your patience.

      So, did you ship the first week in January?

      Creator Bobby Crosby on November 27, 2012

      More frustrating delays, hoping to ship in the first week of January, thanks for your support and patience!

    28. Image-200693-full.small

      Creator Chris S on November 27, 2012

      An update would be a good idea, we are almost to December after all.

      Creator Sean Koh on October 31, 2012

      Looking forward to it!

      @Bobby: YAY! Then I hope it will get printed and shipped to Germany fast enough for christmas. :)

    31. Bobkickstarter.small

      Creator Bobby Crosby on October 30, 2012

      I recently received the photo, so we'll be going to print very soon!

    32. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Nico Erfurth on October 30, 2012

      Still waiting for the photo?

    33. Bobkickstarter.small

      Creator Bobby Crosby on October 13, 2012

      I've been waiting on the top backer to provide photos and other info so we can draw him into a comic, but if he doesn't reply pretty soon, we'll have to go to print without that, since it's been quite a while already. Thanks again for your patience.

      Creator Mike Webb on August 31, 2012

      So it's been over a month last time you updated this project. I think it's fair to ask what's up?

      Well done. We must be all wearing sunglasses and hoodies and listening to music on our iphones. :*)

    STAR IN A STRIP AS A ZOMBIE: One comic in the book is about Corbin challenging another player to a month long grudge match to see who can have the best online results, which requires playing nearly 24 hours a day. Scarlett says that Corbin looks like a zombie, but then he shows her that his opponent REALLY looks like a zombie on the live webcam that proves they're not letting anyone else play for them. If you choose this reward, your name (or nickname) will be mentioned in this strip as Corbin's opponent, and your zombified likeness (based on photos you provide) will be drawn into the strip.
