Risks and challenges

Risks & Challenges

The support of backers on Kickstarter has been instrumental to the success of Scrimshaw since Day One. We have delivered on every issue to date and our fan support is the life's blood for what we do.

The book is nearly complete. Issue #4 of Scrimshaw: Tears of the Sonoran Sea is being colored by Ryan and Spencer as we speak with a delivery date to Alterna of 8/25. We intend on making this deadline as we have every other.

We are committed to delivering our fans a quality product. Eric handles each and very package himself and we enjoy a 100% delivery rate for all of our backers on all prior projects. This one will be no different.
