      Really? I sent them all. Perhaps it got lost or damaged in the mail. I'll send another. I have a few extra.

      Not yet. Mr. Tagawa was not at Comic Con in San Diego, but we have plans to connect once he's wrapped shooting on The Man in the High Castle season 3.

      did you get the posters signed?

    7. Chris Dickens 4-time creator on

      I posted in an update back in May that I would send the posters separately because Mr. Tagawa is away and very busy filming in Vancouver and we haven't been able to connect for the signings. My plan is to get them signed in a few weeks at Comic Con if he's available.

      Sweet. Everything arrived and looks amazing. This is definitely a book worth having a physical copy of, and the shirt is top flight. In fact so top flight it was deemed inappropriate for work, so I am positive it is good stuff. Patience has been rewarded richly. Looking forward to the next installment.

      Last update tells us that shipping was a while ago... nothing seen here to date? Any update on shipping?

    11. Brian Bailey

      Have the books shipped?

    12. Bubba Washington on

      Has anyone received their comic yet? What's the status on the shipping of the backer rewards?

    13. Michael Perreira on

      Around when would we be receiving our comic?

    14. Natasha Chisdes on

      Those letter openers look amazing! Is there any way to get one through an "add on" pledge?

    15. Chris Dickens 4-time creator on

      Good question Suketu. If we do print, I will make the prints available all over the world. Thanks for the feedback

    16. Suketu Sudra

      Love the Ronin #1.5 idea , but for people like myself, we would miss out on the limited run, at the events mentioned as outside of the USA, so maybe a part of the pledge amount?

      Adam, we will be doing another campaign later this year for Book Two.

      Suketu, I don't know what type of pens Gary uses. You should contact him through Facebook. I'm sure he wouldn't mind answering that question.

    22. Suketu Sudra

      Love the sketch pad videos, which sketch pens do you use? Thank you

    23. Adam Rabago on

      So close to that next stretch goal! Just missed the chapter 2 preview. Are you going to run another Kickstarter project for the next chapter, and the rest of the book?


      Happy to help. I love this project and the quality of the art.

    25. Shatteredzen

      Congrats on getting funded! Can't wait to read my copy, such a great premise and the art looks amazing!

    26. Garry Stephens on

      This looks pretty cool and opted for the Naginata pledge simply because i have missed the option to get myself or someone as a damn fine looking sketch.
      The art looks really neat almost like some old school 90's Image comics stuff.
      Best of luck on this project Chris and truly hope i get to read it :)
