Update #4

Producers' Forum now open & wholesale packages available

Hello again backers & potential backers!

Entering the home stretch, we have two bits of news.

First, the Unico/Atomcat/Triton producers' forum is now open! If you are a Producer (you are if your reward level has an X in the Producers Committee column on this table), just send me your user name on the Digital Manga forums and I will unlock access to the forum for you. If you don't have a user name, click here to register.

Second, customized wholesale packages are now available through the Kickstarter. If you are a retailer or know a retailer who might be interested in selling Unico, ATOMCAT and/or Triton, message us through Kickstarter or e-mail editor@dmpplatinum.com for help putting together a package through Digital Manga Direct. As a Kickstarter wholesale backer you will receive copies of the books at a special rate, plus a limited number of the promotional items* from the Kickstarter for you, your staff or preferred customers, or to use for launch events or as prizes!

(*-Promotional items will only be available through the Kickstarter campaign and MAY NOT be sold.)
