      Sure thing, David. I'll try and put together a comprehensive list of what's been accomplished and what's left to do. I was going to try and work on the mini this afternoon, but I'll prioritize this instead.

      Not much to update, holidays were hectic. I have a few smallish projects that need to be finished and then I'll finish up the mini. Shipping will begin after that gets printed. I'll post an update in the next week or so when I have more to let you know about.

      Anomalous,

      I'm currently reposting all the color comics to the new goats site (http://www.goats.com). Once we're all caught up I'm hoping to start doing new comics at a rate of about a page a week. I want to get started as well but posting the archives is time-consuming and I want to also give new readers a chance to catch up.

      Hope that helps, let me know if you still have any concerns.

      Hey Jon, any word on when we might see Goats happening again? I think that is what most of us really truly wanted when we pledged to this kickstarter a year and a half ago. The rewards are nice and all, but not the real meat. Seems like a common problem with kickstarters - the creator gets so swamped doing the rewards that the core cause loses out. I follow SFAM, and saw your latest post looking for patrons ( http://amultiverse.com/comic/2013/12/09/a-modest-request-for-help/ ). I'll likely sign up - a buck a month is great value for SFAM, but I'll double it the second the Goats starts to flow.

      Jon. I had to move out the US back to Canada. Possibly able to move back to the US at the end of 2013. If you start mailing stuff out before then how can we make this work? shall I just paypal you the extra $7 for shipping?

      I don't mean for that to sound passive-agressive. The stuff will take as long as it takes. I just want to be sure I pay the amount I owe due to my own circumstances.

      I'm in, though after a decade of following this comic it's like it's not even a choice anymore. When I first found it I didn't even know about webcomics, I just assumed it was a simulcast of a newspaper comic my local paper didn't get. I hope we see a SFAM or Team Force Alpha kickstarter once Goats is wrapped up.

      This is the best news in ages. Basically I see Kickstarter as a sort of crowd-sourced MacArthur genius grant... Goats was one of the great unfinished symphonies of our time, and though old-school "patrons of the arts" might be a bit thin on the ground these days, it's great that teh internetz can combine hundreds of ordinary people together into the equivalent of one "patron of the arts". Posterity will thank you Jon, and thank us, for this.

      I could've used my pledge money to buy myself something nice, but I used it to buy the world something nice instead.
