      WHEN WILL WE GET MORE EPISODES! THE FIRST THREE WERE GREAT! (hope you all get the sarcasm there! - They were great, cast was great, story great, sad that this didn't become a web series - still could with the right people. JOLLY??)

      He's selling his bike now, I presume that's to pay for stamps when he posts all of our KS goodies

      I can't imagine using a credit card at a place Ken works.

      Ken's Komic Katastrophe has an online sore, sorry, store

      Reported it a long time ago. Kickstarter don't care, amoral at best. Maybe they could do the decent thing and pay back their cut of the money Ken raised

      23 days til end of August, when he will upload the finished clips and start sending out the rewards. I'm sure of it!!!!!

    7. Mad Martigan on August 8

      Every project page has a "Report this project to Kickstarter" button at the bottom of it.
      I've made use of it and selected "Post-Funding issues" as the reason.

      Maybe if Kickstarter receive multiple reports, they may do some investigation and possibly force an update to be provided.

    8. Ravenknight on August 6

      Wow, Whitman delivers, not, yet again. Color me surprised. I can't wait to read his next excuse.

    9. Jolly Blackburn on August 6

      He last logged in here back in April. That's how gone he is, folks. 13 months since his last update.

    10. Jerry Behrendt on August 4

      I demand an excuse-ridden update immediately!

    11. eric neumann on August 4

      I am not surprised that nothing as shipped. I did expect another update full of woe is me excuses and promises of future fulfillment and maybe a few insults and threats.

      Nothing on my doorstep when I got home. Maybe that was end of August... yeah, that's it.

      Mister Whitman,

      It has been 1273 days (3 YEARS, 5 MONTHS , 27 DAYS) since this project was funded.

      Where are the items that you promised us?

      Where is the update explaining why you have failed yet again to deliver on your promises?

      We no longer care about your pride and wanting to complete the project yourself. You are obviously incapable of doing so.

      There have been multiple offers from various people on taking over the production of the DVDs from you so that the hundreds of people who paid $69,525 can get what they paid for.

      Pass the project over to someone competent who has a chance of actually delivering the end product.

      Yay, it's August! After such a long wait, I'll finally get what I pledged for in a few hours. So exciting!

    15. Jolly Blackburn on July 29

      Hey Whitman. It's almost August. How about an update? Been over a year. If you're just not going to finish this please do us ALL a favor and just say so.

    16. Ken Carlson on July 26

      T-minus about 6 days. Apparently "Whit" is now managing his old friend Marcus King's store, currently re(?)-christened "Little Monster Games & Comics" (, after buying the failing store from him for no downpayment, etc. I'm sure his evenings have him hard at work on all the Kickstarters as he stated, and plans to surprise all of us in August. It's not like it takes much to click "Send" on that e-mail to provide the raw movie footage to anyone for finishing, after all. Nah. Not much effort.

    17. George Fields on July 25

      I've completely written this one off.
      It's not going to get finished. It's no longer making him any money.

      7 days to go, I´m starting a countdown :D

    19. Jolly Blackburn on July 24

      any day now. August is almost here.

    20. eric neumann on July 21

      and the facebook page for the game shop ken was given is already gone. That ended even faster than I thought it would.

      Phil Marshall on July 21

      No money has changed hands for the store yet according to the bits I read on Tenkar's page

    22. Volker Greimann on July 21

      I still do not have my BluRay though... So how did he buy a game store if he still has no money to fulfill his obligations?

    23. Jolly Blackburn on July 17

      Well things appear to be working out for Ken. He claims to have bought a game store in Kentucky.

      No word on the August deadlines on his six kickstarter projects though. He continues to dodge any questions on that subject.

      Ken's anti-Midas touch has worked wonders on that comic shop

    25. Traci Charles (Cahira) on July 11

      So, on or before Feb 5, 2014, I pledged this KS and should have received the following things. I will note which ones I have already gotten.

      -- 10 screensavers
      -- Production Diary during filming
      -- Live Online Screenings of the movie (with D-Team Q&A afterward)
      -- Download of the movie "a few days" after the debut (I got a download, but it was the same rough cut as the debut)
      -- "Live Action Blu-Ray DVD"
      -- DVD of bloopers and extras
      -- A "Thank You" in the credits (I did, in fact see my name in the credits of the rough cut)
      -- Print of the 24"x36" movie poster that was supposed to be designed by Elmore
      -- World Premiere (I did get this)
      -- After party with D-Team and actors (I got this from ZOE. Ken did invite me to his "after party" after first canceling said party. But since his party had none of the perks that were supposed to be provided, I opted not to attend and consider this perk unfulfilled by Ken)

      By contrast, on or before February 19, 2016, I pledged the JourneyQuest Season 3 KS. Below are the things that I was scheduled to receive. As of last Thursday, I have received every single thing that ZOE promised me (though to be honest, I am just assuming on the digital downloads, since I haven't actually gone and downloaded them yet ;-) )

      -- Backer-only updates
      -- PDF Backer certificate
      -- Name in credits
      -- Digital Download of the season
      -- Embroidered backer patch
      -- Bluray with signed backer-exclusive cover
      -- Bardic Immunity pin

      Also, ZOE never spammed me with info on their other projects. As snags occurred, they sent out updates to let people know that things were running later. I just wanted to contrast a capable company (ZOE) with the terrible handling that Ken has done of this project.

    26. Ken Carlson on July 11

      Annnnd that didn't take long. Less than a few hours after the below, and Whitman's back to calling detractors "stupid poo poo heads". Sigh.... He should probably spend more time managing that comic shop someone must've given him a day job at after taking pity on his sorry behind yet again....

      3 more weeks or so, and I'm sure we'll all be enjoying the wonderful finalized KODT LAS footage at least, if not any of the other things we paid him for and never received.

    27. Ken Carlson on July 11

      About 3 weeks ticking until Mr. Whitman supposedly rides in with all the undelivered Kickstarters...

      And he's apparently now busy managing a comic store in Somerset, KY, lately. If anyone in the area feels like stopping by and finding out if he's about done with everything we paid for.

    28. Jolly Blackburn on July 6

      yep. anytime now. Coz Ken promised THIS time it would happen. Right? Everyone should email him a word of encouragement. You just know he's puting the finishing touches on things like a proud father.

      on July 5

      You have me fooled. Is something really going to happen, or is the sarcasm meter pegged?

    30. Mad Martigan on July 3

      29 days until the Rapture!

      Less than a month, I´m so happy to finally get my rewards ;)

    32. Jolly Blackburn on June 23

      Nothing to see here — still. I'm betting nothing happens in August either.

    33. Ken Carlson on June 16

      Well, Whitman's been busy calling Erik Tenkar of Tenkar's Tavern an... ahem... "stupid poo-poo butt face".... So he's clearly hard at work on this. Less than 2 months to go.

      Whitman claims "when I do get kickstarters done, Erik Tenkar will still be a stupid poo-poo face". So I suppose we all will, when he rides in on a white horse to present us with the completed footage in August. This should be most amusing.

    34. Jolly Blackburn on June 9

      You can do it Ken. We have faith in you. 59 days to go

    35. August Hahn on June 7

      Son of a bitch is giving me a bad name. I'm August and I'm from Kentucky.

      This doesn't look good... :(

    36. eric neumann on June 6

      Between ken and micheal carlton (wee-glo pen kickstarter that eventually just admitted he stole the money was never going to deliver then deleted his account) I begining to get a bad impression of people from Kentucky.

    37. Ken Carlson on June 5

      Yaawwwwn. *looks around, sees no updates from Whitman, ever, goes back to waiting for August*

    38. eric neumann on June 4

      I might take a bet on whether there will be an update. I would not not consider a bet on whether there will be product. If there is an update it will be more excuses.

    39. Jolly Blackburn on June 4

      Anyone want to wager that August comes and goes without any updates?

      As another year passes, I watch for the release of my favorite group of gamers and yet again am disappointed that there is still no end in sight. I hope the Jolly will be granted a resolution soon.

    45. Jolly Blackburn on May 19

      Well got a group PM from Ken today. First communication from him in 6 months. Looks like he's laying the ground work (as in excuses) for why he won't make the August deadline. Course that's me reading between the lines. Then again I was expecting zip from him in August anyway.

      John St.Clair on May 19

      Well I've reported the project to Kickstarter for whatever small good that will do, and at this point I give up and would just like my $20 back.

      I won't hold my breath...

    47. eric neumann on May 16

      Ken needs to give up on scamming people and action and just rehearse saying "would you like fries with that" and get a honest job.

    48. Ken Carlson on May 5

      *yawn* Nothing new? Just Whitman selling acting classes down in KY w/ Marcus King lately? *goes back to sleep, awaiting August when I might theoretically get some tiny fraction of what I paid on years ago.
