      Great job on never sending my reward. Thanks

      January 21, 2015
      I, also, have seen this book available for sale on Amazon. Being one of the 136 backers who pledged to bring this project to life, I refuse to pay retail for something that I feel like I helped get off the ground, even if it were only to provide the author/illustrator a feeling for how many people would be interested in this type of project. The lack of communication from the creators is appalling (the last update for backers that I received was from May 2015 - about too many undeliverable packages)...
      I sent in my survey on June 2013 (yes, you read that right, 2013) and still have no sign of a book, a poster, OR any emails from the creators. Please, please, please, let us know if we are patiently waiting for something from you, or if we are being foolish to keep checking the status of the project.
      I backed this, because I am a fan of history, and love to support artists.
      But, this is starting to feel just a tad bit ridiculous.
      Thanks for reading. Please respond.

      Actually just got a softcover book in the mail today. I guess it is better than nothing.

    4. David Godin on

      Nothing received, not even a message back. The creator last logged in on May 19th 2015.

    5. Sarah Grant on

      Has anybody actually got their stuff? Nothing but tumbleweeds over here...

    6. David Godin on

      Still waiting for my hardcover book, e-book, app, and poster.

    7. ObscurePublishing on

      These guys are the WORST I've dealt with on Kickstarter. Hardly any updates. I give an address....apparently doesn't ship for a long time and I move sense then. Then almost a year later in May they send me a message saying it was undelivered. I haven't been on Kickstarter in a while (what's the point when you don't update anything). Can I still get the book?

      Future tip: Don't ask for an address if that's not when you're shipping the book.

    8. Sarah Grant on

      Is everybody still waiting? I pledged for a bracelet and still nothing but silence...

    9. David Godin on

      Still never got an e-mail or my book. Updated my address with the survery back in 2013.

    10. Paul Wright on

      I just checked my survey response and the information is correct

    11. Butcher Bob on

      I encourage the backers whom have not received their books to post a review on Amazon and give your impression of the book .. or any thoughts. Be careful that your review can not be too obvious.

    12. Butcher Bob on

      So I contacted Createspace .... they did the project some time ago ... and the book is up for sale on Amazon.com

      The rest of us have been let down it seems.

    13. Butcher Bob on

      Ohh and I have talked to a few of co-backers ... none have received their Hardcover book, e-book, app or posters ... I have contacted the kickstarter administrators .. I recommend anybody that would like to give feedback towards this project make contact with them.

      Never know, it may get the creator to budge ...

    14. Butcher Bob on

      Sadly my address may change within the next 10 to 20 years ... I don't want to miss the opportunity to receive my copy should it ship after I move ... I am starting to wonder ...

      Just checking in to see if the creators have learned to use their %*&^! computer or comment section + keyboard.

    17. Butcher Bob on

      No ebook, no survey, no book .... feel like I am getting strung along here. Not cool. Just communicate with your backers please.

    18. ObscurePublishing on

      You said you were going to start shipping march 3rd but don't you have to send a survey out?

    19. Butcher Bob on

      Unless I am missing something ... is there no way to send the project designers a message now ?

    20. Butcher Bob on

      I have received nothing. I would like to get something.

      Hi. It is now Spring! And.... still no sign of the book. Am I stuck in the &^%$*##* twilight zone here? Anyone got their book yet? Hello? Has anyone received their book? (just checking...) Thanks!

      Use this space to cheer the creator along, ask questions, and talk to your fellow backers.
      Okay---- Hip!Hip!Hooray!
      I STILL have a spot on my wall for the poster... (right next to "Science: Ruining everything since 1543" poster, and opposite from the XKCD "Height" poster, My question is, will I still get the "I Kickstarted..." poster?
      and, to my fellow backers... HI! How the h*ll are you? Aren't we the epitome of patience?

    24. Butcher Bob on

      Thank you for connecting with us.

    25. @impalerspeaks on

      About %*&^! time! Haha! Love it - totally worth the %*&^! wait!

    26. Butcher Bob on

      Some news would be nice. Hell tell me its dead in the water .. at least we would all know and not have to guess. Avoiding questions and direct messages does not help this.

      Hello in there.... is there anybody out there? Just nod if you can hear me... is there anyone at home?
      Would it be possible to get some sort of update on the status of this project?
      (I know it's possible, since nothing is impossible...)
      If there has been an insurmountable problem, please let us know, so we can surmount it for you.
      We believe in you.
      We &*($$%^ still believe in this project...
      so...
      we patiently await a response...

    28. Butcher Bob on

      I have made plenty of attempts to get any form of communication going with the makers of this project. It is a big disappointment that for this many months we are totally left in the dark. All I can say is .... " %*&^!" and you can quote me on that.

    29. David Godin on

      I hope that this is still being worked on and not left by the wayside.

    30. Butcher Bob on

      I am not being a jerk here but ... it would be proper to give your backers some kind of an update ... perhaps once every couple months is not too much to ask.

      If you look at what I have backed .. I am very loyal. Lack of communication does not help to keep me as a loyal backer for future projects. Please give us some kind of update.

    31. Butcher Bob on

      Just checking for any %*&^!ing Updates

    32. Butcher Bob on

      Any %*&^!ing Updates? I was hoping to have this as a talked about item on the coffee table during the Christmas party

    33. Butcher Bob on

      Helen, KC and Tim .. if any of you could answer any of my messages .. I would be happy to post for you.

    34. ObscurePublishing on

      It takes five minutes to log in an give an update. If you would just keep us in the loop with how it's going it would be much appreciated...not that complicated. Don't start a business endeavor if you can't even take the time to log in and write a few sentences. Keep us updated.

    35. Butcher Bob on

      Just checking in to see if there are any updates ....

    36. Butcher Bob on

      any updates from the past 40 + days?

    37. Jason Genser on

      Thanks for providing two updates, more or less when you said you would, but what you still haven't covered is the status of the app. What is the %*&^!ing status of that?

    38. Butcher Bob on

      Any %*&^!ing Updates?

    39. Sarah Grant on

      Hey! I've left three %*&^! comments several weeks apart on the last update post and haven't had a response to any of them. I don't mind waiting for the goods, I just mind being ignored :P Please could you let me know whether my bracelet pledge is being fulfilled along with everyone's books? Thank you!

    40. K&K Harry 2-time creator on

      Books are printing now and will begin shipment on June 9 everyone! This has been a $%^&* challenging project to bring to life! We apologize for all the delays and are now FINALLY in the home stretch. Update your shipping addresses everyone!!!!! Update the addresses so we don't have any return to sender boxes!

      hi! some of us (maybe all of us?) who believe in your project, and are captivated by the premise of the book (and the awesome artwork expected) are still (almost) patiently waiting for any sort of update... How's it going guys? Inquiring minds want to know. Thanks, and please keep us #&@!**# updated!

    42. Jason Genser on

      May we, the backers of this project, respectfully request the entire status of this project and a precise %*&^! %*&^! time table for when all rewards will be fulfilled? At this point, I'm pretty sure the backers of this project could care more about actual rewards that smoke and mirrors and hypothetical quality of rewards that don't exist - a year and more after the fact!

    43. David Godin on

      I, too am not so hopeful for the future in that I will still receive a copy. I would definitely like some sort of update.

    44. ObscurePublishing on

      I've officially lost hope in this project. I'll be surprised if I ever get this book. I'll stop waiting now and move on.

      I'm surprised more people aren't on here complaining. I know there are 14 people who spent big bucks on this (at least to me it's big bucks). If I spent that much I'd be wondering what's going on with this %*&^!.

    45. Butcher Bob on

      Perhaps a more frequent %*&^! updates would be in order?? Every couple weeks or at least monthly? %*&^!!!

      hi. Just wanted to leave a comment to let you know that we still check on the progress of this project, since we all believe in you, and support your ideas. Have a very productive day, and keep us all posted on your progress. (have the perfect spot saved on my wall at work for the poster....)
