Have a question?
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.
I still dont have my copy, Any information i could get I would be grateful for, or even a way to better communicate about the product. Thanks
Still haven't received my pledge reward.
I will now ask AGAIN for my money to be refunded to me. Check your messages for my PayPal address.
Recently made a friend with a self-publishing author, had a nice chat and suddenly remembered this kickstarter! I thought it was 2014-15 when I backed it, but 2012, wow :D
Well, looks like some progress has been made, and books are being sent out and received, just not in UK by the looks of it (where I am), but here's hoping I'll get mine soon ^_^
Wonder what will happen to Vol.2 seeing how much of a backlash this campaign got... I'd still back you guys, mainly because all your hurdles have been new and off the beaten track - kids and all that) Hope the next one will be better ^__^
Still nothing up here in Canada...... *sigh*
Thought everyone might enjoy this video Ray Dillon posted to YouTube last March showing the 39 seconds it takes to package a book. https://www.youtube.com/watch…
No email answered...
3 more weeks....
I love that every once and a while I remember this campaign and the disaster it became lol. I've thrown 200 dollars away on worse
I still haven't received my physical copy yet either. Is it bad that I'm almost happy to see that I'm not the only one?
Still waiting too
And, as expected, nothing...
Still no sign of the book here however I expect international orders are running later than US. Still very much looking forward to the book.
Dont ask for a update ...they hate that word
Did the download-version of the Companion guide go out yet? or did I miss it?
Are these still shipping out? I still haven't received anything... while waiting on this project to arrive I've gotten married and now have a toddler. Just saying.
I keep seeing you post happy reviews from people who have their books, but I'd love an update.
still nothing....happy 2017...see you all next year for more...
"Another nice message from someone who got their book:"
"I have not received my reward yet. WTF Is going on now" ..
Hello. has anyone received their $200 pledge? I have yet to receive mine. I'm somewhat annoyed that those that have seemingly pledged less have received books. i was supposed to receive a custom sketch, signed book of 100, named pirate etc. at this point, i would just like to have a book to read to my daughter.
Renae, please send me a book.
Hey Ray, still no answer :(
Another nice message from someone who got their book:
"Got this beauty of a book! So gorgeous I almost cried. I can't wait to help fund the next ones. I can't thank you enough!"

Really appreciate hearing from people who are receiving their books as typically people who haven't gotten their books yet are the ones that post a lot. The point is to show you that it is happening and the large majority of this campaign has already been shipped.
We'll keep plugging away at it until ALL books are received.
Thank you for your patience.
