Still waiting in Germany .... but the hope will die as the last
Hello, I have received my book a while back and I wanted to thank you and your family for producing this project. This is why I love kickstarter and the creators that are using it to go direct. I hope you go on to produce many more ideas and make it a sustainable business that is profitable to you. I hope that the logistics becomes easier in the future. Are there any printers out there that are catering to this "one and done" model for KS?
still haven't received my book. i'm in Canada.
My book arrived today in germany.
But corners and hardcover front are damaged, too. Looks very used...
Received my book.few bumps and dents and didn't receive a sketch card with my $40 pledge.disappointed!!
Still didn't get my book... Anyone in Belgium that already got the book?
Got my book today. Didn't realize it was hardvocer. It's beautiful.
My copy arrived yesterday in Brazil! Didn't get to read it yet, but the awesomeness simply exudes from it! :D
Just wondering if anyone in Canada has received their books yet, still waiting for mine.
Hi Jake !
package arrived today, excellent condition :-) the hardcover is awesome, I love the feel of it - beautiful work, very well done indeed ! and the Missile Mouse books are really cool !
thanks, it was well worth the wait ;)
Got my book last week. It is exactly what you said it would be great!
Glad this worked out!
My Book arrived in OZ today - thanks so much - corners mildly damaged but in pretty good nick. The inside looks fab of course!
Thanks Jake and Alison - well done!
Got my book today. It's nice, but it's pretty dented. All the corners are damaged, some places so bad that the cover is actually torn. Would be lying if I said, I wasn't pretty disappointed about this :( It's a shame, that a great product gets made and succeds through kickstarter and then gets fucked up in the shipping.
Got my book today here in the Philippines! Thanks a lot.
Got my book yesterday in Belgium. Sadly, it has been damaged during transport. But only on the outside.
But thank you, it looks fantastic.
Just got my copy in London, Uk! Thanks a lot jake, looks great!
Received my package today! Everything looks fantastic and my son has already torn into the Missile Mouse books!
i love it!! thank you
Showed up on my doorstep; gonna read it tonight. THANKS!
Really nice book. Thank you.
Got it today and its Awesome
Beautiful book, my first Kickstarter that delivered exactly what was promised.
Awesome book. The printing is top notch, the colors beautiful and the whole package is very professional. Yours is the first Kickstarter project I backed and worth the wait.
My book showed up today in AZ! Looks good Jake, good job!
Book came in!!! :D I loved reading Missile Mouse. Only problem was that the cover of the book had a large indention on the bottom :( But the sketches are really wonderful!
Got my book today. You've done a fantastic job, and I love the robot sketch.
Just got my book. LOVE IT! Great care and craft went into the book - quality paper, beautiful cover, great printing. The colors leap off the page. Also, LOVE the postcard sketch! Is it a sketch? It looks amazing! Lucy Nova is quite a babe.
Hi Mr. Parker. Just got my book in the mail today. I absolutely LOVE IT! All of the stories were better than I was expecting. But there's one story in particular that has gotten my attention which is Hugo Earhart. As wacky as a boy running postal missions for an unseen master, while riding a flying whale accompanied by talking pig with wings is... I honestly believe that there is a bigger story there to be explored. I felt that out of all of the stories that one really has the potential to become something much larger than a few short stories and I think that how you feel as well otherwise I don't think you would have left it with such a huge cliff hanger.
I know you probably have like a gazillion other things to do even after you finish sending out all of the rewards and your next work won't be for a VERY VERY long time. But, like you said in the overview page at the end something about that story just feels right and I would hate to see it not expanded upon
Anyway, I loved the book, hope all your future endeavors go as well as this one did, and cant wait to see what you do next :) *COUGH* hugo*COUGH*earhart*COUGH*
Hello, some news about the emai with the survey? about the shipment? I need some info to dont be worry about the dates. Best
Looks good, can't wait!
Hey Jake! Just got our e-mail. In your e-mail i only had a $40 pledge, but I made two pledges and have a receipt for them but only the $40 pledge seems to show here. Shoot me an e-mail when you have a moment.
If you forgot to add international shipping you can do that here:
Alexander - I know, got your email and will get a response out to you today.
Maarten - Sending thos eout today and I'll make sure the backers get priority over pre-orderers
Thanks for the comments guys!
I'm a Canadian backer. How do I check (in Amazon?) that I have pledged the extra $10 for shipping?
It's been 8 months Jake.
@jake, I'm worried, you promised to send out a survey for addresses the end of last month, I haven't received any. Did you send it out?
And can you please ensure all your backers that you be sending them out to your project backers before you start sending them to your webshop customers?
@Patrice Thanks for the info! :)
@Pequelord, they didn't ask for shipping address yet. Jake will send a survey asking for the shipping address to all backers at the end of this month.
Hello I am about to move and i need to make a change of delivery address of my order. what is the procedure?
End of next month I'll be sending out surveys to get all pertinent info from you.
Hello, I'm moving next month. How I can make the change of shipping address?
Any new updates?
Totally excited for this! Hi Jake.
Jake, you, your talent, and your family, are some of my MOST favorite things! Keep up the incredible work!
I'm actually hiring a copy editor to go over the whole book. Trying to make this as professional as possible.
Hi Jake. You've done a sensational job and must be over the moon with the interest and the resultant increase in quality you've been able to achieve. Please interpret what follows in the understanding that I think you've done an amazing job and I'm really looking forward to giving my kids your book. On the pages today there are a couple of typos which - if you've still got the chance - would be worth fixing up. They are in the long dialog box in which the professor (?) is explaining to Crumley why he has come to the Space Cave. (1) The past participle of 'to lead' is 'led', not 'lead' (appears twice in that dialog box); (2) The word 'its' only ever has an apostrophe if it means 'it is'. Otherwise it never has an apostrophe - so there's an apostrophe to delete in that dialog too. I don't at all mean to be mean-spirited in making these comments, which are fully intended to be constructive. You have done a superb job. Thanks. Chris.
Thank you for the awesome & fun updates!
Wow. 549 sketches for the books, 10 drawings in the Agent 44 art books, 18 Missile Mouse drawings, and the twelve original drawings (doubling as the card set)... plus the work on the two new stories... your hands will be tired, for sure.
Best Wishes to the Birthday-Boy,; and keep yer spirits up for those 2043 mailings :-)
Wow! I'm honored to have been a part of this! Way to go and Happy Birthday, Jake!
