      Any updates?

      Creator Steven Kohler on February 11

      I appreciate that it seems the creator of this project will eventually fulfill it...

      But if I am being honest, with this long of a delay for a single issue, not even a trade, there is zero chance I will be backing future issues of this.

      Once I receive my pledge and if I enjoy the story I may buy this when it is available from a seller (Amazon, Diamond, etc.), but no more Kickstarting single issues that are not already completed for me.

      But I am still looking forward to this book. Let's hope it doesn't break the one year late barrier.

      I've about given up hope. No update since Christmas and that was a Christmas card and no answers to the comments. Very disappointing situation.

      Any update on the physical copies? Last update (other than the Xmas greeting) was over a month ago, saying you'd be shipping them that week.

      Does anyone know when the physical copy is being delivered? Also waiting on a head sketch... Do we know what's going on with production?

      Yep waiting on the physical copy as well. No interest in reading the digital version.

      No update since July and no response to a comment since June.

      Should we assume that this is never going to happen and our money is wasted?

      The book looks great, can't wait to read it. I ordered the Blank sketch variant but rather than mail it out you can just bring it to Grasshoppes Comics when you do the signing and I'll pick it up then. Thanks.

      Nian,

      Thanks so much for you r comments and support. It really helps us out to get comments like yours. We have learned so much about the production end of things on this first volume that the next 2 issues will move much faster as we will be having them inked and colored as we go, keeping the post-pencil time down to a minimum. We will continue updates thru this Kickstarter for upcoming releases, so stay tuned!! THANKS!

      I told myself that I'd up my pledge once $9,000 was hit, just to make sure we get over the line. So up the pledge I will. I'm so excited. For a few days there I was worried we wouldn't make it.

      Creator Celeste Hotaling-Lyons on November 26, 2012

      I upped my pledge and posted to Facebook (again.) I hope you get some momentum in the final hours and pull this through. Your work is wonderful, and there really isn't any other Steampunk comic out there to compare.

      Creator Nian on November 25, 2012

      Not been a mizer but if people want this to succeed, then start talking about it here. With only 3 comments, the project looks dead to anyone looking at it. If your interested and excited, then say so.

    34. Blakeliberator.small

      Creator Nian on November 24, 2012

      11 days to go, upped my pledge, I hope more interest happens, looks like your doing an interesting story. Hope it happens.

      If everyone upgraded their pledge, we would be allot closer to the goal,

    EXCLUSIVE COVER FOR YOUR COMIC SHOP - Walter’s cover will become an exclusive cover for your comic shop. This pkg. includes multiple copies of the book with Walter’s artwork with a reworked Steamworld logo and your shop’s logo, if you wish. The artwork will be the same as the KS exclusive cover, but you will have access to the colored art, pencils or just inks as an option. Plus, it will look different as it can be reworked to feature more of Walter’s art, or possibly a "virgin" cover (no trade dress). We are open to discussion as to the final design.
