      Hi Ken, Yes I am alive and working on it! I am about halfway through packaging my bulk shipments. Update in the next few days :)

    2. Creator Ken Mencher 4 days ago

      This month is quickly running out...Perhaps just an update to let us know you're still working on it? I know with the weather things have been crazy all over the place, but just something to let us all know you're still alive and working on things.

    3. Creator K. Barrett on February 17

      Colin and Rachel, I'm currently in the process of putting together a bulk shipment that should take care of the majority of packages. As soon as these go out this month, I will post a new update.

    4. Creator Colin Campbell on February 14

      I would also love an update re: where the shipping process is at

    5. Creator Rachel Gardner on February 11

      So it's February 2015. Any updates on the shipments?

    6. Creator The Moomin on February 9

      Thankyou for the update. Can't imagine how time consuming it must be organising so many packages to go all over.

    7. Creator K. Barrett on January 23

      Hi all, yes I have a bulk shipment that I'm working out with a mail house that should hopefully go out after the 30th. Stay tuned for an update soon.

    8. Creator ScaniX - Silent / Friendly / Axe owner on January 23

      I was wondering if my package has been send out as well, but I guess she is still working on it.
      At least in her last statement in the comments section of the last update she said that there are still a lot of packages waiting to be sent out.

    9. Creator The Moomin on January 22

      Hi, I was wondering if all the books had been shipped out yet?

    10. Creator Shaun Rogers on January 16

      Ditto, I'm still waiting on mine too!

    11. Creator Colin Campbell on January 8

      Hmm, me either, are you still shipping these out?

    12. Creator Dave Rezak on December 31

      First, Happy New Year (in 16 hours anyway)
      Second, are packages still going out? I have not received one yet.

      Thanks

    13. Creator K. Barrett on December 19

      Andrew - got the change. Rachel - more packages going out this weekend and update coming soon.

    14. Creator Rachel Gardner on December 18

      Is there any update on when we should be receiving our rewards? To date, I still haven't received anything.

    15. Creator Andrew VanGilder on December 11

      @K. Barret. I sent you an address change quite a while ago. Just trying to ensure it was received and that my book is being shipped to the proper address. Thank you.

    16. Creator ScaniX - Silent / Friendly / Axe owner on November 28

      It would be nice if you would post a message here when all books have been sent out, so I know when to expect it. :)

    17. Creator Matt Reppert on November 20

      Got my book yesterday!

    18. Creator K. Barrett on November 13

      Peter, I just addressed your package ;)

    19. Creator Peter J. Troia on November 13

      Any update....no book here yet.

    20. Creator K. Barrett on October 17

      Hi Andrew and Matt, just waiting on books. We had issues with the proof, took some time, but got it fixed and now I'm expecting the shipment. I'm hoping it arrives by the end of next week so I can spend next weekend shipping. Update coming as soon as I get the books.

    21. Creator Matt Reppert on October 16

      Hoping to hear something soon!

    22. Creator Andrew on October 7

      Just hoping we get another update sometime soon... Hope all is we'll with the project. Let us know. :)

    23. Creator K. Barrett on August 10, 2014

      Adrian & Matt,

      Right now, I'm waiting on the shipment of books, but they are on the way. I'll do a proper update this week, after I am able to get in touch with the publisher to get a status update. Thank you for your patience.

    24. Creator Matt Reppert on August 10, 2014

      So where are we with everything? The last update was in June with it saying that the rewards would be "ordered by the end of the week" we are roughly a month and a half since that update with nothing being said. Where is everything at?

    25. Creator adrian chase on August 10, 2014

      Hi - any update on when the actual comic is shipping?

    26. Creator Jonathan Ball on August 3, 2014

      Still not received the book. Any ideas on how long international orders will take?

    27. Creator K. Barrett on July 26, 2014

      Matt,

      I'll be sending an update this weekend.

    28. Creator Matt Reppert on July 26, 2014

      So the update on June 25th said that the rewards would be ordered by the end of the week. Did the order go out? Has the stuff arrived? Is it shipping soon?

    29. Creator K. Barrett on June 10, 2014

      Hi Daniel, thanks for the feedback! Glad you enjoyed. I have plans to address both issues in the sequel. All is not well between these two for sure! There will definitely be fallout.

    30. Creator Daniel on June 10, 2014

      I liked the story, and I am certainly interested in seeing the sequel, however....
      There was one thing with the story that nagged me the first time I read it, and afterwards it sort of just kept growing bigger this 'nag'.

      Now, I don't want to spoil too much for those that haven't read it, so I'll keep it in general terms and hope you know what I am talking about.

      Basicly, near the end of the story the protagonist is basicly a major jerk towards another person, like... as big an idiot as you can possible be. Now what really nags me is the reaction towards this behaviour: From what I get by reading the comic the person the protagonist did this towards more or less accepts it once the person realizes what happened, and not only this, but connecting the dots make you realize that someone from the persons family is seemingly totally ok with this happening even though the family member was/is (to our knowledge) intrested in the wellfare of that person.

      It REALLY nags at me, and it keeps nagging at me that for all intent and purposes, this single vile action done by the protagonist is seemingly just glossed over like it's 'no biggie' while it's almost as big a 'biggie' as it can be.

      I hope I wasn't too vague about it and I hope you understand what I mean with my 'nag'.

    31. Creator mousewings on June 8, 2014

      Hi, have the postcards or stickers gone out yet? Thanks!

    32. Creator K. Barrett on April 17, 2014

      Digital download links have been sent twice and I will continue to send these out for those who missed them.

    33. Creator Rafa Reyes on April 15, 2014

      Did the PDF e-mail go out? did i miss It? cant wait to read it. Thanks

    34. Creator K. Barrett on April 1, 2014

      Hi Matt. Good question. The book is done!! I'm waiting for any additional final notes from beta readers and then the digital copy will be released ASAP. I have to go out of town for work for the rest of the week but I plan to check in within the next few days.

    35. Creator Matt Reppert on April 1, 2014

      So yeah, its now April and the last update was in the 2nd week of February, where are we at right now?

    36. Creator K. Barrett on February 6, 2014

      Hi Matthew, I am doing final lettering and proofing, so we're pretty close. I will post a new update this week for all backers.

    37. Creator Matthew Joseph Belliveau on February 5, 2014

      Any updates on the book?

    38. Creator K. Barrett on November 22, 2013

      Thanks Thomas! Yes, I am overdue for an update. But we are heading to the final stretch so it won't be long now. I will post an update this weekend.

    39. Creator Thomas Newman on November 22, 2013

      Hi K, the preview was amazing, could you provide an update on how things are coming along?

    40. Creator NaNaJackJack on September 23, 2013

      Yes, I agree-- the preview is excellent!

      Can't wait to see the whole thing.

    41. Creator Rachel Gardner on September 13, 2013

      The 27 page preview is AWESOME! Beautiful work, I cannot wait to read the rest of this novel.

    42. Creator K. Barrett on August 12, 2013

      Hi all,

      I'm a bit overdue for an update. Just waiting on some new color pages which I hope to share very soon. We are making progress and the book will be 88 pages of story + pinups. Final inks will be completed very soon and I have started lettering. Color may take a month or so longer but I plan to release a black and white digital version for backers who want it when it is ready. Thanks for your patience and support. I hope to have an update to all of you later this week.

      Thanks,
      Kara

    43. Creator Thomas Newman on August 10, 2013

      How is the project going?

    44. Creator Peter J. Troia on August 8, 2013

      Does this look to be completed next month or in December? I'm not complaining just looking at a best guess.

    45. Creator K. Barrett on April 15, 2013

      Hi Rachel,

      I am sorry to be MIA. I will post all about it in my upcoming update this week. The book is in progress. It's just taking longer than expected. Stay tuned. New update coming later tonight!

    46. Creator Rachel Gardner on April 11, 2013

      This is a birthday present to myself and the suspense is killing me. I know you are super busy K, but how much longer do we have to wait?

    47. Creator K. Barrett on April 2, 2013

      Hi Kosongz. The past two weeks of my life have been crazy. No time for anything. JC is still working on artwork though so we are progressing. I'll get an update posted soon with some new art. Hang in there!

    48. Creator Kosongz on April 1, 2013

      April's here. How's the progress? Can we read the book soon?

    49. Creator K. Barrett on March 3, 2013

      Hi Kosongz,

      I just messaged all of the digital only tier backers earlier with the pdf links and sent an update with the wallpaper page links.

      Thanks!
      Kara

    50. Creator Kosongz on March 3, 2013

      When will we be able to get our digital only exclusive?
