      Andrew,

      I hear you. I have two pages left to draw, plus the cover and layout miscellany. I could get the whole thing done in 3-4 days, if such a thing existed. Right now I'm averaging about 1-2 days behind my regular schedule, so finding that time has been difficult. Today, for example, I had to bring Alec to therapy, and then he was sent home early from day care with a fever, so I lost a full day of productivity. This sort of thing is not uncommon.

      I'll make you a deal: if I'm not able to find the time to finish it by the end of June I'll shut down SFAM and focus exclusively on the kickstarter until it's done. Deal?

    2. Creator Andrew Duncan on May 30, 2014

      Do we have any kind of date we can expect the mini-comic to be done? It's been a year and 2 months since the project was funded. I know this kind of thing will take time, but time has passed, I imagine along with most of your backer's good will. If it still isn't started then it really has to either become your priority or be abandoned.

    3. Creator Philip on May 20, 2014

      How can I change my shipping address? I've moved since I backed this project.

    4. Creator Jonathan Rosenberg on May 5, 2014

      I don't have an exact date, shortly after the mini is done.

    5. Creator Francis Szalay on May 5, 2014

      Can we have an update on when the physical books will be shipped out?

    6. Creator Jonathan Rosenberg on March 21, 2014

      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.

    7. Creator David Felizarda Real on March 21, 2014

      "This project was successfully funded on Mar 23, 2012"....
      Could we get a new update?

    8. Creator Jonathan Rosenberg on February 21, 2014

      Nothing of interest -- still looking for that magic window where I'll have enough time to finish the mini. Hopefully next week.

    9. Creator Peter Konings on February 21, 2014

      Hey, today is the second anniversary of the Goats kickstarter! Any news?

    10. Creator Peter Jordan on February 16, 2014

      Go Jon Go! Make Printing HAPPEN! We believe in you!

    11. Creator Jonathan Rosenberg on January 8, 2014

      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.

    12. Creator Drew Johnson on January 8, 2014

      Hi, Jon. Could you update us on the Kickstarter?

    13. Creator John Fiala on December 10, 2013

      Any updates on when the books will ship?

    14. Creator Jonathan Rosenberg on December 9, 2013

      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.

    15. Creator Anomalous on December 9, 2013

      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.

    16. Creator Jonathan Rosenberg on November 5, 2013

      Once I finish the mini (on my plate right now) and get them printed we'll ship the books. USB thumbdrives will follow afterwards so we don't delay the shipping of the rest of the rewards any further.

    17. Creator Steve Chilcote on November 5, 2013

      Any update on when the books and USB thumb drives will ship?

    18. Creator Jonathan Rosenberg on September 21, 2013

      Nothing substantial, still working on the ebooks and the mini. The books themselves are finished and printed, just waiting to finish up the rest of the rewards before we ship. I'll post a real update soon.

    19. Creator David Harris on September 21, 2013

      Any more updates? Any idea when the books will come out, and when Goats might be finished?

    20. Creator Jonathan Rosenberg on July 28, 2013

      You got it! Update posted.

    21. Creator David Felizarda Real on July 27, 2013

      Can we have an update please?

    22. Creator Peter Jordan on July 1, 2013

      MUST HAVE GOATS. MUST.

    23. Creator Jonathan Rosenberg on June 5, 2013

      Yes! I owe you an update, will try and post later today. Everything is going swimmingly.

    24. Creator Thomas on June 5, 2013

      regular updates = been a while...?

    25. Creator Scott Cale on March 26, 2013

      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.

    26. Creator Anomalous on March 21, 2013

      regular updates = awesomeness!

    27. Creator paul on March 12, 2013

      Thanks for the recent update! I'm glad to hear things are moving along for you again - you certainly seem excited about it. (Can't wait to hear who the famous sci-fi writer will be. It's Asimov, isn't it?)

    28. Creator Stephen Peters on March 12, 2013

      "breaking each subproject down into tasks, determining dependencies"

      Oh?

      1) secure adequate childcare
      2) order double-jumbo jar of Computer Mouse Wax
      3) load the liquor guns
      4) reload the liquor guns
      5) profit!!

    29. Creator Jonathan Rosenberg on February 21, 2013

      Argh! Will try to write up something later, I am trying to get some stuff done before ECCC. I will have more for you soon.

    30. Creator Peter Konings on February 21, 2013

      Happy first anniversary, Goats kickstarter! This calls for a speech!

    31. Creator DangerBoy on February 17, 2013

      "Feel free to keep lighting fires under my ass until it does."

      Consider this a fire. I love your work, just wish it would happen faster. ;o)

    32. Creator Jonathan Rosenberg on February 9, 2013

      Anomalous, I'm working on it! I need to finish the book first, and get he website ready. There have been some unfortunate delays for a number of reasons I won't bore you with, but please know that I am as eager as you are to see Goats start up again. Hopefully sometime first half this year.

    33. Creator Anomalous on February 9, 2013

      any news on when we might start seeing some new goats? it's been nearly a year...

    34. Creator Jeffrey Wikstrom on June 8, 2012

      Looking forward to it!

    35. Creator Linda Paolino on April 16, 2012

      Thank you for the update! No worries here.

    36. Creator Kevin Peckham on March 23, 2012

      So, I owe you dinner when you come to Toronto, even if you didn't take the bet. I'm happy to do it, though.

      But no-one backed the Cellulose Edition :(

    38. Creator Andrew on March 23, 2012

      Bring on the trumpets!

    39. Creator Brian Peters on March 22, 2012

      Wow... I... had intended to try to save money for awhile, but I came onto this page with literally 10 minutes left and I couldn't resist getting every Goats book published so far. Scenes from a Multiverse is great, but Goats was my first true webcomics love.

    40. Creator Mikey Cooper on March 22, 2012

      $1999 more! Come on, strangers!

    41. Creator jeff lowrey on March 22, 2012

      I love you guys.

    42. Creator Andrew on March 22, 2012

      Stupendous. Please do some stretches and warm ups before launching into this.

    43. Creator SM on March 22, 2012

      You've convinced me to triple my pledge, despite the depths of student cheap-bastardry I wallow in. Congrats, Jon! Looking forward to more Goats!

    44. Creator Paul Browning on March 22, 2012

      $924 more and There Will Be Badges (which admittedly doesn't make as good a movie title)

    45. Creator Neil Denton on March 22, 2012

      4 more people who want to meet (and drink!) with Jon in NYC and we'll meet the 50K goal!

    46. Creator sillygoatgirl on March 22, 2012

      I added a little extra to my pledge in the hopes there might be some bunnies magnets that arrive to wipe the books off the USB drive....Oh wait...
      Can't wait to see your work continue this year. Hoooooooray for everything!

    47. Creator Garth Thompson on March 19, 2012

      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.

    48. Creator Darren Bennett on March 18, 2012

      I'm already "complete", but I wish I had another spare eight-fifty bucks to make Jon eat a vegetable!

    49. Creator Peter Hartley on March 17, 2012

      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.
