Have a question?
Hi Michael, thanks! I've started thinking about the next book... but it'll be at least another couple of months before I'm ready to go. I'm thinking March or April.
So... when's the next book coming out? This was so well run, I wanna buy the next book!
Jens: I'll let Make That Thing know, and they'll send your book back again. Sorry about that!
It looks like the post office forgot to notify me when the package arrived, and now it's been returned due to not being picked up in time. So what do I do now?
Scott: Make That Thing reported a handful of defective copies with that issue. They thought they caught them all, but one or two may have slipped through to backers. If you email me a photo showing the problem, I'll arrange for a new copy of the book to be sent to you.
Enjoying the book, but ... a thin protective film has come loose, starting at the back cover edge and going all the way around the binding to halfway across the front cover. It will not re-adhere where it has come loose. Has anyone else experienced this?
Got the book in Norway as well. Looking great and for once I'm glad the (not so small) kids are not awake when I am. Less competition.
Yes, it's here! Glad I made a Kickstarter account for this. Both a GM (in Star Wars) and player (in D&D, Pathfinder and more) myself, as well as a LEGO fan and comic reader so naturally I love DMM's works.
The second book I ordered went to introducing a fellow GM to Irregular Webcomic.
Keep it up, if you ever do another one of these I'll definitely back it!
Got it this morning in the UK. Love it, thank you!
Got it four days ago, a great read!!!
Got my book today in California. Looks awesome!
I got mine! Pleasure doing business. :)
Got it today! Well done campaign and delivery!
Quote from my eldest after I opened a package, "ohh, that's a nice looking new book." Maybe I can get him to read it.
Once I'm done.
The book arrived today! Huzzah! Looks good, can't wait for the next one (space?) :D
I am very happy to hear that it is coming soon. I have a friend I plan to introduce this to.
@Matthew Ryan: Yes, that's correct. The surveys will go out just before the books are ready to be posted, to make sure the addresses are all as up to date as possible.
David, did I understand correctly that you'll be sending out the surveys (at least for those of us who only got books) closer to when the books are actually ready to go out? (Not a complaint, as it hopefully helps cut down on the "whoops, I moved since then" issues that some will inevitably run into, just asking.)
@Wyvernsrose Yikes! Hopefully yes, they'll sort it out. Let them know, and let me know if you need a hand.
Kickstarter has charged me twice for this one hopefully it sorts itself out by the time it all clears.
Wow, I can still scarcely believe the last 48 hours of this campaign! Now the hard behind-the-scenes work begins to get your rewards to you.
@Vidar Ambrosiani: Cliffhangers is number 1 on my list for a follow-up book too, so you may be in luck! :-)
Congrats! I'm really glad the usual end-of-KS rush did happen! :)
It's official now, congratulations!
Sorry I was so late to back. You've given me more than a few laughs over the years, though, and I wanted to make sure to give something back.
Thank you for the laughs and the fun. And congrats on making the goal!
Last minute backer. Groaned a bit about international postage, but then I thought, hey, with all the joy you've given me, paying back is only fair. However, what I really want Is a book of the cliffhangers series. In my mind that's easily the best theme. Please do it next!
Wow! A few days ago I feared that the target wouldn't be met.
made it, with 21 hours still to go!
I can't stop myself from coming back here to check if we are still over 22.000 AUD :-)
Wow, those last 24 hours really gave it a boost! Congrats on getting the target!
And unless something changes drastically in the final 22 hours you're funded, congratulations! :-)
Irregular Webcomic was the first ever comic I found and the first I binged on. I remember sitting in my uni hostel's computer room until late at night, making my way through the hundreds of strips. My love of webcomics stems mainly from this one and I'd love to have it next to those on my shelf.
Wow, what a eucatastrophe!
I was already starting to feel sad the other day about the project failing... and then somehow it's gone and turned around at the last minute. : )
Unbelievable! Just 69 AUD missing :-)
If people continue to back within the next 40 hours like they did in the last 24 we may still reach the target :-) Please advertise where ever you can.
I still hadn't backed this project despite it being in my agenda for days now. Suddenly saw that deadline and that the target hasn't been reached yet - so I quickly backed for two books, one for a DMing colleague. Hope you reach your target, you deserve it!
Used to two copies, I have a friend who is a big fan of Darth and droids who doesn't have time to read IW, I hope to introduce him to it.
Thanks, thanks, and thanks for the comments and pledges. I've started holding my breath as these last few days tick down. I really don't need this for my nerves! I've begun thinking about contingency plans, but I'd rather not have to invoke those, and am still hopeful we can get this funded.
I just increased my pledge - hopefully you find another way to get these books done if this isn't successful
I added an extra book (Great Christmas present to get that gaming friend hooked guys) to help reach that goal!!!!
Hi David! Good luck on the project! I don't know if there's enough time left, or if you even have enough time to do it, but one thing that I thought worked really well on the OOTS kickstarter and that could also work here, is that you could offer a bonus PDF story for every backer, regardless of pledge, but don't make it available anywhere else. It could be a good incentive!
I see Steve posted something about the project :-)
Great idea with the meet-ups - as a long-time reader and current London resident, I'm delighted to have the excuse to upgrade my pledge :)
@ Oliver Korpilla: Wow, you must have read my mind. I was in the middle of composing an email to him right now!
Can you get some publicity through Steve Jackson? He seemed to have an interest in the comic in the past...
LG is the only other lego based webcomic I read. Maybe there are other artists that might be willing to mention this, too.
@ IRDC: Thanks for that. I should have thought of contacting Dusan myself - I'm glad you did!
After a poke Legostar Galactica mentions the return of Irregular Webcomic in today's strip's comments. I hope this helps a bit.
@ Jamie Bergman: Thank you!
@ IRDC: Thanks for helping spread the word. I am contacting as many friends as possible to help, and have started running an ad campaign on Project Wonderful to let more people know about the Kickstarter. It's a bit of a haul to the goal, but I haven't given up!
