Have a question?
Just downloaded the book. Very nice reproductions, colors came out really well. Look forward to seeing the printed version. Thanks.
Colin, we don't expect any of our backers to join any third-party websites in order to enjoy their rewards. We are looking at solutions to bypass this requirement from Dropbox and we'll have news very shortly.
Got my link to receive my e-book copy and it requires a Dropbox account. This is not acceptable and was not disclosed prior to taking my money.
I refuse to sign up for Dropbox as I disagree with their TOS. You need to provide an alternative rather than forcing people to sign up for yet another cloud account.
Hi @Brian - we have been working with Mr Guice to coordinate the art rewards. His schedule has been very demanding but we're hoping the art rewards will follow shortly after the hard copies of the book are available. We will keep everyone posted as we get copies and start filling orders. Thanks for your support of this important project!
What about the art rewards?
Hi @Benjamin - the digital rewards are being filled shortly so everyone who supported the Kickstarter will have those soon. The hard copies are at the printer and we've arranged to have the Kickstarter copies air freighted in to send out to our fantastic supporters before anyone else gets them. Watch for ETA updates as we find out when the books will be in hand and start filling. Thanks!
Should we still expect our rewards in October? I see that this book was solicited through Diamond for January.
It's done. Thank you!
@Benjamin & @Conroy - we appreciate your support and your interest in bringing Swashbucklers back to comics. We certainly didn't mean to upset or bother you by sharing our other projects with everyone who has helped us to successful bring this project to life. But we want you to know how much we value your support and that we'll take your comments to heart. We'll keep information coming about the status of Swashbucklers so that everyone is in the know about where we are with the books. Thanks again for being a part of the project and for sharing your thoughts with us.
@Twyste - We just posted an update today and we'll do our best to keep more communication coming. Swords of the Swashbucklers - both the remastered graphic novel and the new series - are deep in production and are moving along toward completion. Thanks for supporting us and helping to make this project a success!
@Cristian - surveys did go out and we've got the fulfillment files here ready to go when the books are printed. Please go ahead and send us an email at the "contact us" button here on Kickstarter with your revised address and we'll make that adjustment. Thanks!
I don't remember if surveys went out or if I filled out a survey, but I'm going to be moving in the next 10 days so I was wondering what can be done about that to fix the shipping address?
No update for almost 3 months. Can't help wondering what's going on?
Spam on other projects and no updates on progress on the book or the new series. :(. Here's an article on the new series:
When I signed up to back this project, I did it for the artists involved. I did not opt-in to keep getting annoying marketing messages for other Dynamite Kickstarter projects that having nothing to do with the project I supported. Unless you have a substantive update about the Swords of the Swashbucklers kickstarter project, these emails are SPAM!!!! This is the first and LAST Dynamite kickstarter project I plan on backing!!!!
@JayMac - thanks for checking in. Looks like you are at the all-digital reward level so we are good to go. Watch for updates from us on upcoming delivery of reward assets. And thanks for supporting Swords of the Swashbucklers!
Hi @MarkReese - we did get your survey - thanks for checking in and for supporting Swords of the Swashbucklers!
I still haven't seen a survey, are they still being sent?
Apologies in advance. I am not sure if my survey actually went through or not. Safari closed it when I hit "save" and I can't find anytime of confirmation. Is there a way for me to check the status?
I'm excited to read this GN, but please stop spamming me about your Vampirella Tarot Card project. One message to let me know you're doing something else is cool. Three is not.
@Andrew - thanks for sending us the info - you are in good shape to get your copy!
I'm horrid at checking my email. I just responded to the survey- which says today is the last day to respond to it. Can you confirm I got my response in on time and that I will be getting the Softcover GN sent to me?
@Brian - if you were asked for a 20 word dedication it means you qualified by your pledge to leave a dedication presumably for Butch Guice and Bill Mantlo about what Swords of the Swashbucklers meant to you. You can either say something about that, chose to not say something (just type - "no dedication" in the field), or you can leave a general message (like "I'm glad to see Swashbucklers fly again"). Completely up to you. Thanks!
What exactly is the Survey's "Please give us your up to 20 word dedication for the special Mantlo & Guice message section." field for? Who's dedicating what to whom, why and where? What "message section" and where is it? Survey will not allow us to leave it blank either...
@Theratpack360 - we are sending out the surveys shortly - you'll be asked to specify your shirt sizes there as we collect fulfillment data. Thanks!
How should we contact you to give you our shirt sizes? :)
@Brad - Thanks for supporting the project! We are really excited to be bringing this awesome book back to comics!
Congrats on the successful funding of this campaign and finiishing strong to meet the final stretch goal. I look forward to getting the rewards! I
@Karen - Thank you for supporting the project and for your excitement about the Swashbucklers! If you would like to add to your pledge, just shoot us a note via the "contact us" button on the page and we'll coordinate with you to make sure you get everything you need. Thanks again!
@Jay - If you had a specific level you wanted to increase to, just shoot us a note via the "contact us" button and we'll see what we can do for you. Thanks for supporting the Swashbucklers!
@Brian & @Jared - Thank you! We are very excited to be a part of this project and will be sharing as much behind the scenes info as we can once the new artists and contributors are confirmed. Thanks again for helping us make this a huge success!
Would a post-completion opportunity to add a soft-cover copy of this book to a pledge for the hard cover book be something you might consider? *thinking one copy might not do* *I live in a house full of geeks*
Ah shoot, was going to up my pledge. Ah well...
Congratulations on reaching the goal! I am really looking forward to seeing the new series, with art by Butch Guice. Hope you can also get Colleen Doran and Geof Isherwood to contribute to the series maybe a cover or two. Would love to see some other artists take on the series including Mike McKone, Joe Jusko, and Matt Wagner doing a some covers. Maybe Bill Willingham writing it.
congratulations on reaching all the goals!
@Jacqueine - Thanks for the kind words and for supporting the project! We feel the same way about the book and are very excited to be a part of this. Thanks for helping us make it a reality!!
@Jimmy & @Gary - We made it to the stretch goal thanks to all of you guys! You indeed do rock!
@Matt - first off - thanks for supporting the project! The book has to be remastered which essentially is us having a graphic artist clean up the 1980s colors so they can be represented in today's standards. That takes some time but it should be available before the print version. And of course everyone on the Kickstarter will receive print copies long before they are available anywhere else. Thank you!!
@Chris - thanks -we agree it has been a real joy to see how much everyone loves Bill & Butch's classic story. The T-Shirt is going to be the skull design we posted here in the body of the project. Thanks again for supporting the Kickstarter!
I've long since lost the single issues from the original run but somewhere, buried in a box, I may still have the original GN. It was one of the most fun series that I've ever read. I'm glad to see it come back.
Jimmy Chang - You sir rock. Period.
You're nearing the final goal. Consider it crossed. You should cross it but if for any reason you fall short, I pledge to make up for the shortfall. So celebrate! This is to thank Bill for the pleasure he gave me all those years ago...
I'm excited to get into this story as I've never heard of it before!
One question, if I have gone for the digital only pledge level, when could I reasonably expect to receive it? I'm guessing I wouldn't have to wait until all the physical copies have been printed.
Thanks and keep up the great work,
Hi, this campaign has been so fun to watch and participate in. Question about the shirt, any initial plans on the design? (The skull with the rose?) thanks!!!
@Michael - thanks for supporting the project! The $350 level is for one figure but it can be other characters. The $650 can be for multiple figures within reason. And can also be whatever you request as long as reference is available. Thanks!
Hey, I'm excited to be participating in this Kickstarter! I have a question which I don't know if you'll be able to answer at this late hour, but if I were to increase my pledge to the $350 level for the 8" x 11" sketch, can that be for multiple characters? And can it be any character or only a Swords character?
@Andrew - thanks for the question. You'd get both the Remarqued edition and the dedication! Just change your pledge to the new level and you'll be good to go. Thank you for supporting this special project!
If I increase my pledge to $250, do I get a Remarqued edition in addition to a dedication? Or just the dedication?
@Louise -Thanks for sharing your excitement for the project with us. We feel the same way and are thrilled to be helping to remaster and deliver this timeless story to comics again!
