      DVD was waiting on the mat when I cam home this evening; thanks.

    2. Creator Bobby Tomio on July 1, 2014

      I just received my DVD. Thank you!

    3. Creator Sequart Research & Literacy Organization on December 23, 2013

      Shannon, please email me at and I can set you up with a new link.

    4. Creator Shannon L on December 23, 2013

      Where can I download the film? The link in the update doesn't work. Thanks

    5. Creator JD Calderon on December 9, 2013

      Just watched the film :)

      Good job guys.

    6. Creator Jay Smith on November 3, 2013

      Wondering if I'll ever get to actually see this....

    7. Creator Sequart Research & Literacy Organization on April 24, 2013

      We're still rolling along with the editing. A few weeks ago, we did another interview with Erik Larsen and a follow up with Eric Stephenson, so it's now pretty much a question of refining that edit and adding music. It's at least 90% done, maybe 95, so it's just a question of getting those last few steps done.

    8. Creator Dannimals on April 23, 2013

      Can we get an update about how close the film is to being in our inboxes? Can't wait for this.

    9. Creator John F. Pannozzi on February 26, 2013

      I pledged $25 for the DVD and download. Will I get the Ultimate Download?

    10. Creator Sequart Research & Literacy Organization on February 26, 2013

      For the films and books that are already complete that is, the Image DVD is still a bit off.

    11. Creator Sequart Research & Literacy Organization on February 26, 2013

      Books and DVDs are going out now. Look for them shortly.

    12. Creator Shane Giroux on January 28, 2013

      Do the books/DVDs rewards only get sent once the new film is finished?

    13. Creator Sequart Research & Literacy Organization on January 14, 2013

      Sending out an update today! Short answer is it's still in the works, will be finished in Spring.

    14. Creator Dannimals on January 13, 2013

      I haven't received anything either, I don't think it's done yet. Can we get an update?

    15. Creator Milan Kovacs on January 9, 2013

      Is this still in progress? As I didn't receive anything...

    16. Creator Sequart Research & Literacy Organization on June 28, 2012

      We're holding off on surveys until closer to the actual mailing, so people don't change address in the interim. So, some time near the end of the summer they should be going out. But, don't worry. We haven't forgotten about you!

    17. Creator Hansel Moreno on June 11, 2012

      Same questions as the others. No pressure but what is the status guys?

    18. Creator Ahmed Ewing on May 24, 2012

      It's been almost thirty days since funding--did I miss a notification, or are the surveys still outstanding at this point?

    19. Creator W Robert Webb III on April 25, 2012

      When will the surveys be sent out?

    20. Creator Hansel Moreno on April 25, 2012

      Hey guys... favorite comic book? Proof has a special place in my heart.

    21. Creator Alan Robertson on April 25, 2012

      Awesome! I was getting worried.

    22. Creator Dominic Tiberio on April 25, 2012

      Woo-Hoo!!! Really glad this hit the target!

    23. Creator Hansel Moreno on April 24, 2012


    24. Creator Chip Mosher on April 24, 2012

      Ahmed - Fantastic! I feel a company-wide contest coming up!!! :)



    25. Creator Ahmed Ewing on April 24, 2012

      @Chip - Bravo comiXology!! I just downloaded your iOS app as a small "thanks".

      So... when is the cagefight to see which employee gets to go to lunch with the director/producer? :-P

    26. Creator Chip Mosher on April 24, 2012

      Chip Mosher, VP of Marketing, PR and Business Development at comiXology. We just pledged as a company $552 dollars, putting you all at your goal. Please make sure this pledge is put under the "ComiXology" name and not me personally. This is coming from all of us at comiXology.



    27. Creator Hansel Moreno on April 24, 2012

      Getting closer... My god...

    28. Creator Ahmed Ewing on April 24, 2012

      Oh, Image Comics.

      How you tickled the senses with your glossy stock and ahead-of-its-time color print processing... how your characters won over our adolescent hearts with their overdrawn anatomy and underdeveloped dialogue... how you held my allowance hostage with your numerous cover variants of the same damn issue... how you toyed with my emotions via so many solicited/advertised books which shipped months late, if at all...

      Twelve-year-olds really have no business being involved in speculative markets of any sort. But it was an exhilarating ride, for sure, and I loved every second of it. (Plus I managed to become an indelible part of the record as well--check the "The Morgue" section of Bloodstrike #16 to get a glimpse of me in full fanboy letter-writing regalia.)

      There was no question of my contributing to this documentary project once I learned of its existence. But thanks in part to Tim's blog, I'm onboard as an Associate Producer. Let's get this thing Kickstarted! Another $600 in 2 days is more than doable.

    29. Creator Hansel Moreno on April 23, 2012

      Go Team Image!

    30. Creator Tim Callahan on April 20, 2012

      If anyone is on the fence about donating, and reading comments out of curiosity, check out my blog post about why I donated:

      The Sequart guys (and gals) are worth the investment.

    31. Creator Judy Moore on April 20, 2012

      I just put in $50, thanks to Tim Callahan for doubling it!! I loved the two prior docs -- I've heard a lot of rumors about Image and I can't wait to see the real story!

    32. Creator Marlene Rennert on April 17, 2012

      Can't wait to see another Respect Films Documentary!!!

    33. Creator Sequart Research & Literacy Organization on April 15, 2012

      BORF, the film's story is still forming. We don't know how it'll turn out yet.

      Colin, thanks!

    34. Creator Colin Murchison on April 13, 2012

      Best of luck, guys!

    35. Creator BORF on April 12, 2012

    36. Creator Sequart Research & Literacy Organization on April 6, 2012

      Brett, we're glad to have you aboard!!!

    37. Creator Brett Culp on April 6, 2012

      Great project! I remember being neck-deep as a teenager in the madness of comic books during this time period. Excited to see the finished film!

    38. Creator Milan Kovacs on March 7, 2012

      amazing! just pledged $65. I really want to make this happen!

    39. Creator Sequart Research & Literacy Organization on February 26, 2012
