Have a question?
Congrats on Baby & hope she continues to do well!
Did the digital version of the Companion Guide ever go out?
Did I miss something somewhere?
Thank you for the update, Ray.
I have updated my address with our own house move in July. I hope that corrects itself with the previous address survey from a couple of years ago. Thank you
Just posted an update that's a little more detailed and easier to read.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
Is there a way to know if you already shipped by book?
Okay, hi again, everyone. Ray Dillon here again. I’m sorry that my absence has caused concern. I hope you can understand why after I explain as succinctly as I can.
SHORT STORY, I hope:
Since the last update a few months ago we've struggled to find new housing with a set day to move out of previous house, found a place and moved last minute. Renae had a preventative surgical procedure that is dangerous while pregnant. A few days later she gave birth to our baby girl Claire. Baby had very bad jaundice levels for a month and was in and out of the hospital, constant blood draws and tests. About a week after we finally made it home for good with baby, Renae had a near fatal pulmonary embolism (blood clot in lung) and infarction (dead portion of lung), hospital stays for over a month. Baby is now fine and growing. Renae dead cel mcdewp is recovering and we're starting to get some semblance of normalcy again and finally get our new place unpacked.
Everything is fine with your book and it will be on the way just as soon as we can get it ready. Signed, sketched, and shipped.
Now, you will absolutely get your book. I can’t stress that enough. And if you look around, the majority of backers have already received theirs. Obviously things like sketched, signed, numbered, international editions, are going to take longer, especially now with Renae recovering and holding an infant and taking care of a toddler too, and needed to keep working as much as possible.. We're doing everything we can to get these done and out.
We do NOT want this Kickstarter to carry over into another year. Seriously. Sorry for not being able to fulfill this sooner for those of you who are left, but trust me, we live with the stress of it every day. But we're down to just a few hundred left, they just need to be worked on and shipped. If I could sketch them myself I would, but I'm sure everyone would rather wait for Renae. She's just got an infant full time right now and needs all her strength and doctors orders are for way less stress.
Hope you can understand. I know it's frustrating to wait, especially this long and with lapses of communication, but it will work out in the end. There's literally no scenario where you'll just never receive your book.
Thank you for your consideration and patience. Hope despite the wait you're having a nice day.
Ray Dillon here.
Okaaaaay...It would appear that I neglected my communication with some of you for too long. I'm sorry for that.
I'm holding a fussy baby at the moment but i will be back with an update today asap. Might be late tonight when i get to work. I'll try for sooner.
NOTE: Everything is completely fine with all of your pledges and you will get them.

Checking in again. US backer, still no book :(
If it makes you feel any better Jason, I didn't receive my book and I live in the US.
Quite frankly - were international supporters robbed? I paid for a higher tier and as a reward I have to ask for an update and I am left with not even an idea on when I will receive the book I requested for my daughter YEARS ago. I said it before and I will say it again - I am very disappointed with the lack of professionalism from professionals. I request an update or a refund please - this is ridiculous.
$295 a month now , 4 $ down on last month
Still waiting.... Book or refund.
It's been 4 months since the last update. Can we please have another update at least? I'm not sure if that will even really mean anything. I'm an international backer (Canada). Thanks.
And this person got a copy after Legend of Wonder Woman came out (so between 2016 and now), while we wait out our punishment of purchasing the more expensive tier.
and $299 a month here
Still no book...can i just get a refund ?
Time for my bi-yearly check-in. No book in my hands yet. Zero surprises.
This was the second KS project I've ever supported, the first one (not comic related) fell through - great way to get acquainted with KS. However, I have since supported many other projects, all comics, all but one delivered, some with delay but nevertheless. I appreciate that Renea and Ray kept and keep communicating through all of this, even with delays. The other two that never delivered simply disappeared, never to be heard from again (though one of them being active on Twitter and at comic conventions).
I run an online business with my wife, we teach ecourses. We pre-sell them and then have to deliver once class starts. We have always done so, no matter the personal circumstances, including a difficult pregnancy for my wife and then through birth and after as well (we had to do a class basically right after birth for financial reasons). I fully understand the plight of the entrepreneur, especially the creative ones.
But deliver one must, regardless. And I am hoping that whatever is still outstanding, including my (international) copy will be delivered soon. I urge Renea and Ray to take into consideration how their actions affect their supporters, especially when I read from people who supported this as presents for their children and have waited for many years now.
Another word of advice: life is strange and you never know who you may come to rely on in the future. Never burn bridges you so willing passed over to reach your goal, you may just have to pass over them again at some point.
Given their lack of communication on Kickstarter, I would encourage other backers to share their concerns through the other forums noted below, including particularly Patreon and Twitter. https://twitter.com/RayDillon. In response to my own tweets, and despite a promise in May that they would begin sending numbered, special editions and international copies to backers immediately, Ray just stated that no copies have been sent to any of these categories. Accordingly, he asserts yet again, that they will be doing this soon. It bears note that, in her May update, Renee stated that only around 60 backers need numbered copies. This means that in 3 months, they haven't managed to send a single one of these copies. They are now seeking crowfunding for another project and, as noted below, actively telling potential donors that this KS campaign is almost completely fulfilled.
According to Ray the Campaign is about to be fulfilled including international shipments.
What's the over under on domestic shipments finishing before 2018?
Wow, I never got my book either, thats what I get for spending 100 on a kickstarter graphic novel, its why I pretty much stopped doing kickstarter projects. Ive been burned too many times. Book looked really cool, wish I had it. Oh well, live and learn.
Hi guys! How is the family? And the latest child? All good? Also any word on international books??
Cheers Phil ?;-p
When I made my pledge, the child the book was intended for was or an age where they would have been thrilled to have their name in a Peter Pan book. That was 5 years ago! Children grow. I grew tired of waiting a long time ago and now just want a refund. I appreciate international shipping isn't cheap, so don't sent it, just give me my money back.
I'm international (Canada). Pledged over $85.00. We all have reasons why we pledged this book and I am very disappointed at the lack of professionalism by these creators whom I respected. Next step is anticipating to be held hostage for extra shipping money. Honestly the race is on between this project and Rob Liefelds Brigade to who ships first. I would ask for a refund - but I doubt that would be entertained. Very disappointed guys. We all have life drama but we all manage to meet commitments.
Just bumping - dunno what the deal is with international shipping at this point, but like many others (I would assume) I haven't received anything. Would just like an update :)
@Allie & @Kate same level here too. If we only pledged the 35$ we supposedly would have had the book by now.
@kate- You're not the only one. I pledged 95$ and never received anything either. I've held out hope for years but I'm pretty much giving up at this point. It's crushing.
I really wanted this book...but since the Kickstarter I've been married, had a kid (who is now a toddler) and nothing. ����
Any recent update about backers with a number copy?
This was my reward, I live in the US and still haven't received anything...
CROCODILE'S TREAT: Copy of both Peter Pan: The Graphic Novel - Volume 1 and the Companion Guide HAND SIGNED & NUMBERED (of 100) by Renae De Liz and Ray Dillon, as well as digital PDF versions of both books.
More promises. More long silences. More delays. This project is now almost 4 years overdue and no sign of my book.
The last email Ray sent was 10/07/2016,18:22.
PLEASE ANSWER ME!!!!
Still waiting on my book. I pledged at the $100 level. At this stage I'd happily accept a refund paid into my PayPal account. Details have been inboxed to you and emailed to both you and Ray.... to no reply.
Any update on when numbered US backers will receive their copy?
Christopher Scrupps - If you haven't received your copy, please email me with PETER PAN UNRECEIVED US COPY in the title and we'll get a new one out there for you.
Jack - Yeah, sorry we never put together a proper site, but your names should be listed in the printed book itself. We do have an option for you to buy a copy if you email me at RayDillonGGS at gmail
Regarding your last email, and possible solutions to that 12,000 dollars, I think your first plan might work.
Personally, I am a $1 backer and have been waiting for you to list it online or something akin to that. At the time of backing I didn't have the money for a higher tier, but thought the idea of putting my brothers and I in the lost boys section would be awesome. Plus, I wanted all the email updates regarding this project. Now I'm a bit more financially stable and would happily pay for a full copy. I am also here in the US.
I think that people who have bought the book might want to by a copy for someone they know who loves Pan as much as them. Maybe a US backer exclusive sale?
Anda after the update, no email answered...
What do US backers do who haven't received their book and aren't a "numbered" backer? Were there tracking numbers on any of the books shipped? Not entirely sure the address originally provided is still valid.
Thanks for the update! Still in the USA awaiting my copy, but I'm one of the numbered lot. ❤️
Posted an update for Backers directly from Renae this time.
Hey guys, a patient Canadian here.... any update on shipping up here? Its been a bit since any update
Is it possible to answer my email, just choose one and answer :)
The last email you reply was Jul 10, 2016
I have not yet received my reward Miss Renae. ECC edited your Wonderwoman comic book in Spain and I have not bought it, nor will I buy anything from them until I receive what I have paid so promptly. This is incredible, no more excuses, no more "nice message from someone who got their book" can you read the messages your backers have sent here? it's a shame for you. I think any of us will ever trust you again.
