      Hi, everyone!

      Sorry to keep you waiting. We had some problems with our chosen printer, and we are now collecting offers from other companies. As soon as we find a solution we will send the books into print, and we hope to begin shipping no later than the end of the summer. Thank you all for your patience and sorry for the delays. We can't wait to see the books come to life.

      update maybe?

      Thanks for the reply. Though I assume you mean late-May / early-June? As it's already mid-May. And please do update, even if it's about technical trouble. It's better than leaving us in the dark for months at a time.

      @Christopher Witherow Hi, Christopher! We ran into a bit of technical trouble in preparing our files for print and it, frustratingly, ate up more time. As things stand now, we are looking at late-April / early-May for possible shipping, but we will send a precise update as soon as the books are in print, hopefully in the next week or so. Thanks for your patience.

      Got the e-mail, and downloading now. Thanks a bunch!

      @Trevor Sherman Hi, Trevor! We are re-uploading your digital reward as we're typing this, and we will send you a link via email as soon as it is ready. And, yes, we are still working on a late April date for physical copies.

      When I received my link for the digital download back in October I didn't use it. As tempting as it was, I just didn't want to read the book until I got the physical copy in my hands. After the unfortunate setbacks you guys have experienced trying to get the book out to us, however, I now find myself simply wanting to read it, regardless of the format. Since the old link you sent me has long since expired, would it be possible to get a new one sent to me? Thanks in advance, and I hope that things are still on track to have the physical copies printed up soon!

      @vladimir strukelj Hi, Vladimir! We've sent you a message.

      Hi Imagine!
      The only mail I've received beside the update is the survey response "Now all you have to do is sit back and wait for a great reward!
      You can double-check your responses below:"
      And nothing else :/ So yes please, a new download link would be awesome.

      Three cheers for government bureaucracy!
      Thank you for the update.
      Keep on trudging slowly towards the finish line.

      @Sebastian Levenson Hi, Sebastian! Just when we think that everything is finally resolved, it turns out we are wrong. At the moment, the only issue preventing us from going to the printer is a clerical issue with the national publishing registry (waiting for the necessary registration numbers) that keeps putting us off. Bureaucracy tends to be slooooow in Serbia. We don't want to send an update without any concrete information, so it keeps getting delayed, just like the print. The important thing is that everything is ready for print on our side, and will be sent out as soon as we get bureaucracy out of the way. It is a frustrating situation, both for us and the backers, but hopefully it will be resolved soon and we will be able to finally give you specific information about printing/shipping. Hope you understand.

      Hey guys - was wondering if there was any update on the printing? I saw on 2/13 you said you'd have an update in a matter of days but it's been over a week so just checking in.

      Looking forward to finally getting the book in hand!

      Glad to hear things are still progressing. Was beginning to get worried. Still really looking forward to getting this book in hand...

    15. Imagine Incredible Creator on

      @Christopher Witherow @NewPath57 Hi there! Sorry for taking some time to respond. We kept delaying an official update because we were waiting on some solid, concrete information to share, and the wait kept going, so the update kept getting delayed, etc. It seems like we've finally sorted everything out (more on it in the update), and we will be updating everyone in a matter of days, while we hope to finally have the comic book in print before the end of the month. Stay tuned for the update.

      Hi guys! I was just wondering about how things were progressing.
      I know you've been keeping up with the comments here (thanks for that!), but an official update post hasn't been made since September. I think it'd be best if some sort of statement was made.

      Hi. Were the physical copies shipped yet? Thank you, Mate

      @vladimir strukelj Hi, Vladimir! The digital rewards were sent out back in October. If you haven't received the email, or if you weren't able to download your reward before link expiration, please let us know and we will re-upload and re-send your reward ASAP. Thanks.

    20. vladimir strukelj on

      Hi! Tried to find an email where I could contact you instead of writing (and spamming) the comments section. But I haven't gotten a link nor mail whatsoever (stuff like that happens, so no worries).

      @Kevin Povey Hi, Kevin! We will be posting an update this week, once we sort out all the details, but, as things stand now, we will probably send out the PDF novel fairly soon, while the physical portion of the rewards will have to wait until January. Stay tuned for an update, and we hope to send the novel along with it.

    22. Kevin Povey on

      Any news on the Uncommoner’s Gene novel PDF?

    23. Imagine Incredible Creator on

      @Christopher Witherow: Hi, Christopher! We're doing our final check up before sending the comic book to the printer, and it should be sent as soon as today. We hope to ship the rewards in the first half of December, but we will release an official update as soon as the books are in print. Stay tuned.

      Hi guys! Has this shipped yet? Just want to know if I missed my shipment / when I should expect it.

    25. Imagine Incredible Creator on

      @John-Paul Atley: Wow, thanks a lot! We hope to bring more of these stories to life. Keep your fingers crossed for us! ;)

    26. John-Paul Atley on

      I've just read the first two issues and I can happily say that it's the best comic book I've read from Kickstarter, and might just make my top 10 of the year. It has the feel of an Image book, in all the right ways. Really excited for more.

    27. Imagine Incredible Creator on

      @Matija Milošević Hi, Matija! Thanks for the kind words. We are still waiting for the registration numbers for the print editions (it shouldn't take more than a few days), and as soon as we receive them it is straight to the printer. It's not entirely up to us, so we do not dare make a more precise estimate, but the book should be on your shelf well before the end of the month. Fingers crossed!

      What is the update on physical rewards? I have read comic already, it is glorious, so I can't wait to put it on the shelf, where it deserves to be!

      @Rustan Melville: Hi there! The new link is being uploaded as we're typing this and you will soon have it in your inbox.

      Hey there, I got an email saying the download would be available for the next seven days, but I didn't see that part, so now it's gone! Is there any way to recover it?

      @Rankin Johnson The link is in your inbox now. Sorry for the wait.

      @Tobias Schmidt Hi, Tobias! No need to apologize. We will send an update fairly soon, but here's the gist of it: PDF versions are on track and we will send them before the end of the week. We're forced to slightly delay the shipping of physical copies, but those will be sent out in October. We'll get into greater detail in the upcoming update.

    36. Tobias on

      Hi, is the pdf version still on track, or will there be a delay?
      Sry for being impatient.

    37. Imagine Incredible Creator on

      @Christopher Witherow Hi, Christopher! We were gonna send out an update fairly soon, because some of the rewards have been sent to the printer and we should have them in a matter of days. As for the comic book, first four episodes are completed, and the fifth and final episode is almost done. It's currently being lettered, and the entire collection should be ready for printing before the end of August. We will detail it all in a coming update, which will post as soon as we have some cool images of the printed rewards. Stay tuned!

      @Tobias Schmidt Hi, Tobias! Nothing specific to report, but the work on the comic book is coming along according to schedule. We're adding the finishing touches to Episode 4, and Episode 5 (the final one) is steadily growing. As it stands now, we will be ready to ship in September, as promised, although we'll try to make it even sooner. Stay tuned for a more thorough update in the coming days.

      @Ian Mepham - Yup, that may have done the trick. Or maybe it was the black magic spell casting we did during the last full moon. We'll stick with the latter rationale if you don't mind. :) Thanks for the congrats!
