      Ray here:

      @Chris - Just sent you a message.

    2. Creator Chris Buchner on February 6

      And still nothing.

    3. Creator Renae De Liz on December 5

      Sian - I'm sending you a message right now. Sorry if I missed anything.

    4. Creator Sian Nelson on November 29

      Hi Ray, Could I please get an update I have sent a few emails and I did include the IDW's shipping manager but I have yet to hear back or recieve the book.

    5. Creator Renae De Liz on October 10

      Chris- I'm really sorry you didn't hear back from IDW's shipping manager and if I missed any messages. I'll give it another shot.

      ~Ray Dillon

    6. Creator Chris Buchner on October 7

      So, I was CCed with IDW's shipping manager, and that was the last I heard. I sent a private message back in July, 2 months after that E-Mail, to that fact, and had no response. Now it's October. No responses. No updates. No book.

    7. Creator Renae De Liz on July 13, 2014


      Just sent you a reply in private messages and attached you to an email with IDW's shipping manager. So it should be taken care of soon.

      Thanks so much for your patience! Have a great day!


    8. Creator Rodrigo Ortiz Vinholo on July 10, 2014

      Guys, I've also never received my book =o

      I've actually been out of the loop, and since I've seen other projects get some delay, I wasn't really worried. But I just noticed how long it has been, since the books are around, can you guys check out what could have gone wrong with mine?

      I'm not sure if it was sent (I couldn't find any tracking reference in my e-mails, but I could have overlooked it), and if it was sent there's always the possibility that Brazilian mail service might have messed things up, as they are prone to do, on occasion.

      Thank you very much!

    9. Creator Renae De Liz on June 18, 2014

      Shaun - Looks like you had the sketchbook. I'll check in on that today and message you.

      Andrew - Sorry if you didn't receive a message, I'll message you now. The situation is still the same, we won't stop until everyone has their books. Renae's health prevents her from handling it herself, but I'm doing my best to get any of the books that have slipped through the cracks on top of my own work. Messaging you now.

      Priscilla - Really sorry if I've missed your emails. I'll find it and reply with Thomas and try to get this fixed asap.

    10. Creator Shaun O'Kelley on June 7, 2014

      I was curious if there was any way to get an update on my book

    11. Creator Andrew C on June 5, 2014

      Its June 2014, and backers still haven't received books.

    12. Creator Priscilla Lam on May 29, 2014

      I'm an Australian backer of the $50 of more pledge (Hand numbered copy of Womanthology #400 and up) and have still yet to receive the book. I've emailed Thomas before and just emailed him again to follow up. Ray, I've CCed you in the email.

      Hope to get my hands on the book soon :(

    13. Creator Renae De Liz on May 16, 2014

      Chris - I sent you an email attached with Thomas, the shipping manager for IDW, if you didn't get that, please let me know in a private message and we'll get it work out.

      Glad to see more special editions arriving at their homes! :D


    14. Creator Chris Buchner on April 26, 2014

      I was supposed to get one of the 400 numbered editions of the book and still haven't gotten a thing. I have sent several E-Mails but haven't gotten a response. What am I supposed to do here?

    15. Creator Steve VanHorn on April 22, 2014

      Yeah, I finally got mine also.

    16. Creator Kenny Mak on April 16, 2014

      Got mine - they exist!

    17. Creator Steve VanHorn on April 16, 2014

      So... about those tracking numbers...

    18. Creator Renae De Liz on April 10, 2014

      Andrew - Cua was obviously a typo, but sorry for posting your full name. Didn't realize anyone would care. Just wanted to make sure I was giving thorough updates. I also said I'd be contacting you directly, and I will. At which time I'll verify your current address. You might want to update the address in your profile.

      Hope you have a great weekend too!


    19. Creator Andrew C on April 10, 2014

      Not even going to get mad...
      That you didn't verify my address before sending,
      Or my last name is wrong in the list below (Im going on a limb that I am supposed to be Andrew Cua, no other Andrew C__s on the backers list),
      Or that you couldn't contact me knowing that I have been waiting,
      Or you published full names of backers, we have control of our public profile names for a reason.
      Consider this me contacting you, but glad you left a 'note' in the message as I didn't receive any message from you directly.

      Have a great weekend!

    20. Creator Renae De Liz on April 10, 2014

      CAMILLA SKETCH EDITION UPDATE: Books have been shipped to the people listed in the last update! I'll be sending tracking numbers asap.

    21. Creator Renae De Liz on April 4, 2014

      This comment has been removed by Kickstarter.

    22. Creator Renae De Liz on March 30, 2014

      Update on that. Sent out messages to everyone in the CAMILLA reward category asking for updated addresses. The last one we sent only got a couple of replies, so maybe there was an error there, but if you could all please reply to the Kickstarter message I just sent out with your updated address we can get them mailed early this week.

      Thank you!


    23. Creator Renae De Liz on March 30, 2014

      Ray here.

      @Calliope - So glad you got your book and liked the sketch! And thank you for taking the time to post the news in here. :D

      @Anthony - I'm sorry you're frustrated with the wait. I understand. We had a further delay after my update on March 12th, but are ready to ship early this week. And everyone should have gotten a request for an updated address, but if not I'll send again.

      And that should finish the project off. If anyone else has not received your book or reward, please send me a message and I'll get you taken care of.

      Thank you for your patience and support of the project.


    24. Creator Anthony on March 27, 2014

      On March 12th, Ray said: "CAMILLA COPIES will be shipping out next week!"

      Two weeks later. No address update request, no shipping notification, no updates of any kind.

      @Andrew C, I imagine they're not responding to my comments because they likely feel I'm being a jack***. Which isn't far from the truth. I'm sure that all of us who haven't received our book have a pretty good reason to be at some level upset. Every time I've ever gotten a response (even when I was still being polite) all I've ever got was a comment pushing responsibility onto others or some vague remark about what the status was with what turned out to be a false statement about delivery times.

      I'll probably be more surprised to actually get the book than I am at any continued delay at this point. Even trying to apply the theory of discrete probability couldn't help us get an actual estimate of anything happening. We might have a better chance at winning the lotto!

    25. Creator Calliope on March 25, 2014

      Hello Renae! Thank you for the lovely sketch in the book! Thank you Ray & Thomas for quick responses to my check ups. (The book dropped in the mailbox exactly on 31st dec 2013 :)

    26. Creator Renae De Liz on March 12, 2014

      Just confirmation, I just sent emails to Sian and Andrew. If anyone else has an inquiry, please send me an email at and I'll get you taken care of.

      Thank you!!


    27. Creator Renae De Liz on March 12, 2014

      Sian - I'll email you right now and make sure you get a copy.

      Andrew - You should have yours. I'll email you and we'll get to the bottom of it. Please keep your comments about the status of the book, not personal. Yes, I am the one responding to inquiries about the book. Renae has to avoid stress as much as possible for health reasons. Please respect that. Thank you. And, yes, True Detective IS amazing. Hope you check it out!

      As for everyone else, All CIRCUIT EDITIONS have been sent so you should have them or be receiving them soon (Canada and Australia seem to take the longest).

      CAMILLA COPIES will be shipping out next week! And a huge thank you to her and her manager for working so hard on those and getting them back to us! Great people!


    28. Creator Andrew C on March 11, 2014

      March update, nothing yet.

      I love how Ray just skips over Anthony's comment to answer the one underneath.

      I guess Renae is busy on Twitter to respond to us personally but I hear True Detective is amazing.

    29. Creator Sian Nelson on March 9, 2014


      I have emailed a few times and have not heard back. I backed the

      In Melbourne (Australia) I have seen shops with this book yet I still don't have mine. Can you please tell me when I am to receive it or even a email back.

    30. Creator Renae De Liz on February 22, 2014

      Alison - Since yours is a regular copy, I just need to get the shipping guy for IDW to send you a new one. I'll email you with him attached now. Sorry for the delay!


    31. Creator Anthony on February 15, 2014

      So, we should be seeing that form in about six months given history and the book in maybe another 18 months.

    32. Creator alison sampson on February 15, 2014

      It isn't a signed one, just numbered. I'm in the UK. Are there specific problems for us? I got the sketchbook at the time in 2011/2012 and I can see from the survey on here you have had my correct address all this time. To be really honest, I don't really mind if it isn't numbered. It beginning to cost me more chasing this than the cost of the book.

    33. Creator alison sampson on February 15, 2014

      Hi there, I'm still waiting for my book. I've sent in my address at least 3 times, and have not moved. Is there any chance of the book being sent to me?

    34. Creator Renae De Liz on February 12, 2014

      Hey, everyone!

      We now have Camilla's books and will be sending those out asap. First we will send a form around to make sure we have everyone's current addresses.

      Hope you're all doing well! Thank you for your continued patience!


    35. Creator Andrew C on February 6, 2014

      Hey Anthony, while I agree that they need to confirm addresses lets see if they even respond to our posts.

    36. Creator Anthony on February 1, 2014

      @Andrew C. Nope. technically, they should send out a request for address again since it's been almost two years since the book was finished. Some of us have moved.

      Looks like indolence has won again! Way to keep us all in the loop Renae & Ray!

    37. Creator Andrew C on January 17, 2014

      Tracking number, anyone get one?

    38. Creator Renae De Liz on December 20, 2013

      Happy Holidays, everyone! Ray, Renae's husband here.

      We're shipping out a big batch of special editions (signed/sketched, circuits, etc) today. And Camilla's manager has the money for shipping. I'm sure they're super busy with the holiday season but we should be getting those back soon and then we can start shipping them to you!

      If there are still any regular copies (particularly international) that haven't made it to you, please email the shipping manager and feel free to attach me so I can stay on top of it, too.


    39. Creator Renae De Liz on December 6, 2013

      Hey, everyone! Ray, Renae's husband, here again.

      Happy to see that you're getting your books at last!

      CAMILLA SKETCHES - We should be getting these all from Camilla's manager next week and start shipping them out.

      ALL TYPES OF CIRCUIT EDITIONS - We will definitely have these shipped out before Christmas. BUT, for INTERNATIONAL copies we can't guarantee how long they'll take to arrive only that we will have them shipped out and will send tracking info.

      Thank you for your patience. Sorry if there has been frustration from the complications and delay we've had. Finally done with that though. And thanks again for supporting!

      Hope everyone is having happy holidays!


    40. Creator Megan Fortner on December 4, 2013

      I have been quiet pretty long on this -- because I understand health and family come first, but it has been over 2 years and I feel that is more than enough time for me to start complaining.

      We backed this project, which went $75k over the goal. Now, I understand they don't have money now, but that should not be our problem to fix. We paid for these to get shipped to us. We paid a lot. A long time ago. And we deserve to have our books. The artists are not to blame here, and I feel like every update has been blaming the artists.

      We deserve to get what we paid for -- if you have to take out a loan to get these to us, that's what you need to do because if you don't have money, it means you spent our money on other things and that's not fair to everybody who is waiting.

      I live near-ish to the Canadian border -- and if I could get help with the gas money, I would be happy to drive up there and bring the books with Camilla's sketches back to the US and send them to folks for a lower shipping cost. At the very least, allow Camilla and her assistants to contact people and see if they are willing to pay to have theirs shipped directly. But you shouldn't be *expecting* people who have already paid a lot of money for this project, to pay for shipping on something we shouldn't have to pay more for. The extensive amount of time we've waited should be payment enough, and this needs to be taken care of. For those willing to pay, though, the information needs to be available to get this sorted out.

      If there is anything I can do to help get these out to people, PLEASE contact me. I know I can get my copy if I pay for shipping, but I don't feel right getting mine if there are still people waiting, when this should have been taken care of long ago.

    41. Creator Erin Tapken on December 4, 2013

      I was waiting on an Artist Circuit eidtion and it has arrived, although I did not receive any tracking info, it just showed up shortly after Ray posted that they would be going out with only 2 signatures.

    42. Creator Anthony on December 1, 2013

      Nope. Still waiting. If they're consistent on anything it's the continued poor communication and failure to meet their own deadlines and set expectations (see Oct.12 post).

    43. Creator Andrew C on November 24, 2013

      Re the remaining books has anyone received a tracking number?

      I still haven't received anything.

    44. Creator Joshua Stone on October 25, 2013

      Veronika, I agree, don't judge all Kickstarter projects by the disaster that this one has been. I have backed many comic book projects and have had very few problems, and none like this with such a poor level of communication. Congrats on at least getting your book, I still haven't received mine.

    45. Creator Erin Tapken on October 23, 2013

      Andrew, The reason Veronika had to get her book directly from Camilla (and pay $54 to have it shipped to her - see, she paid, not her "persistence") is because Ray and Renae do not have any money to pay for the books to be shipped from Canada to the US. This issue is all about money. Camilla should not be on the hook to pay for the shipping of the books after already donating her time to do the sketches. Contributors were not paid for their work or their time.
      Ray and Renae are hoping to find a cheap way to get the books back to them so that they can in turn send them out.

    46. Creator Andrew C on October 22, 2013

      Hi Veronika, So glad to hear that you got your book. Not sure why you had to work personally with Camilla and her staff but your persistence paid off.

      Re never backing another KS project, do not base your decision on this project. It has been a horrible experience for a number of people. There are a number of responsible creators out there, Camilla had her own project that was fulfilled very quickly and had a great result.

      Re the remaining books has anyone received a tracking number?

    47. Creator Veronika Hurbis on October 22, 2013

      This morning I have finally received my book. I paid $54 to get it posted over by Camilla's fantastic assistant Tasha. Thank you so much Tasha!

      So, two years late, here it finally is! Was it worth it? Yes, purely for the Camilla sketch alone. But really, it all cost me not just the $200 but masses of my personal time. If I was charging for the time I wasted chasing things up, then no, it would not have been worth it.
      Would I ever fund another Kickstarter project? NEVER AGAIN!
      If Renee and Ray feel like refunding me the postage cost, that would be absolutely fantastic ($54 Canadian, thank you). But I am not holding my breath.

    48. Creator Renae De Liz on October 12, 2013

      This is Ray, Renae's husband, helping with messages.


      WRITERS CIRCUIT EDITIONS: As you can see we now have ALL Writer's Signatures! So we'll be sending those out asap. Renae will also be doing a little sketch and signing your book as well as a thank you.

      ARTISTS CIRCUIT & FULL CIRCUIT: We are missing one of the artist's signatures, but we are going to go ahead and mail out your book as soon as possible with the 2 signatures and Renae's signature and an extra little sketch by Renae!! As soon as we can get the final signed signature book plate sticker from the artist we will be mailing that to you too as well in a separate package. We didn't want you to have to wait further for the book. Based on everyone's responses, that seemed like the best way to go.

      CAMILLA SKETCH EDITIONS: We should have everything in place in the next week or so to get Camilla's sketch copies back here to the states to then mail out to you individually.

      Again, very sorry for the delay on these, but we've very excited to finally be able to start mailing them out to you.

      Hope you're all doing wonderful. Have a great day!


    49. Creator Renae De Liz on September 27, 2013

      AYAL and LUTZ-

      SO happy to hear you got your books. Lutz, really sorry the numbering was off. I'll message you about what we can do.

      Ben- As I've posted several times and told you personally over direct message, we are waiting on signatures. As soon as we have them we'll send out books. I'm very sorry for your frustration at the wait. Hope you have a nice day.


    50. Creator Ben Whittenbury on September 26, 2013

      Just so you know, YOU PEOPLE are the reason I have abandoned KICKSTARTER!!!
