Have a question?
I never received the book. Could you look into it's whereabouts for me?
Oh my. It's here in the UK and it's gorgeous.
I just received the hardcover book in the mail. It looks fantastic!
For those who asked about paper dolls: John will be in charge of all of that, but just email me at email@example.com and I'll pass on requests to him! We do have some extra paper doll sets!
I can say that after waiting almost two decades for this idea to become a reality, the book lived up to my anticipation. Since it's original release in pages of SCOUT and the two FASHION IN ACTION Specials, I've been a devoted FIA fan. None of that prepared me for what a great package this hardcover collected edition turned out to be. The restoration is impeccable. Brilliant job all around.
Got my book, thanks!
Well I didn't realize we could get a replacement if we wanted. I might take you up on that. All I was really trying to say is, despite the delay and the damage it's a beautiful product.
It was meant as a compliment. Sorry...
Please everyone. It's a lot easier for me to handle requests if you send me a message then post a comment. If a book is damaged, it will be reshipped.
Mine was received with corner impact damage (thanks Amazon) which disappoints me (and is a big reason I don't buy books like this from Amazon anymore). That being said, it's beautiful and definitely worth the wait, even received imperfectly.
Hi Margaret, a new book has been sent out as a replacement, you can discard the ruined book
Any idea how to flatten the book? The carrier delivered it outside in the rain so it got completely soaked
Hi Tim! Yes all the bookplates and prints were shipped out a few months ago, yours must be lost I'll reship
Book arrived! But no mini-print. Is that shipped separately?
the system is just me, you can just message me if you want your tracking!
It seems shipping has commenced. Will we get tracking info as our books go out or are we at the blind mercy of the system?
Thank you! Message on its way.
email always works best! you can use the message function in kickstarter to contact me directly
Hi, Hope. Book received today. Looks great, but it arrived damaged (bumped hard enough on the lower corner as to split the cover a little). What are our options?
I can confirm the books are still at the printer, I'm not sure why they are taking longer than anticipated but last I heard last week they are in the binding stage
So this is now five months later than you originally estimated, and going on a week or two after the book was promised at the printer. Any word on when?
Hi Brian, once we have a print ready PDF we can do the digital fulfillment, going to have this out next month
Any word on the digital rewards?
If we have left, yes
Will there be any way to purchase the paper dolls separately? I am now regretting that I didn't back at a higher level.
Woo hoo!! Congratulations!!
So close.... less than $2k to go... the 48 hour notices should help push it over the edge. Fingers crossed!
Hoping this gets funded, looks super interesting!
This is very exciting. I still have all my old Scout comics (that I bought FOR the FIA) and the FIA Specials. Once upon a time a bought a pair of red Chucks and a black sharpie and had my own Roxanne style "cruel shoes". Loved the story, the art and especially the style. Happy to have found you and best of luck.
What else can I say but I truly hope this fantastic project comes off. I loved the strip back in the day and have often wondered why it has never been reprinted. Best of luck to you all and looking forward to holding a copy in my eager mitts!
Is this comes off I'd love to see a good quality reprint of JKS III's series The Prowler, written by Tim Truman, dark as anything.
Welcome back, ladies! Enjoyed this series back in the day, along with its stylistic fellow traveler Go-Man!
JKS III also did a brilliant comic adaptation of Jekyll & Hyde for the rebooted Classics Illustrated series, for those seeking more of his distinctive work.
Hi John that's a great idea! I'll talk it over with John(Snyder) and see what he thinks! More details to be added to the campaign tomorrow on the pieces
The "Women in Historical Action" illustrations look interesting. It would be nice to know a little bit more about them (When were they produced ? What was the occasion ? etc.) but what I would really like is to see them available for purchase as a set of mini-prints (say 4x6 or 5x7 in size).
Great to see the latest project... looks awesome!
Plus, everything really is better if it involves gorillas.
This is so absolutely awesome that I just have to own it!
