    1. Creator John White on February 21

      I contacted him on Facebook and he even accepted a friend request. But he never even responded to my messages. Not even to say F-off. It seems like life as normal for him. Makes me wonder if the whole thing wasn't a scam from the beginning. Must feel great to be able to take advantage of so many people who put their faith and support behind you.

    2. Creator Alex Johnson on February 19

      Pretty disgusting behavior.

    3. Creator Niels Braakman on February 7

      He's active on Facebook and twitter as well. I het the feeling that they mag have given up on this project.

      I haven't tried contacting the creators through Facebook or Twitter, but have attempted all other means through their steamworld website and kickstarter.

      No replies ever. I informed kickstarter about the issue, but there is little they can (or will?) do about this "radio silence" by the creators.

      I won't be backing any sequels by these folks. This is among the worst (customer) service I've had anywhere. Ever.

    4. Creator Adrian on January 26

      Here's the upsetting factor. Kickstarter shows the creators last login. Which shows January 15th, 2015. So Steven has definitely seen our comments just begging for an update. If he just said "Oh I won't be shipping till April, 2022 at the earliest." That would be good enough for me.

      Here is proof he's logged in recently =/

      An update - even to say you are never going to ship would be nice.

      -queue sound of crickets chirpping

    6. Creator Kevin Captiva on December 14

      lol still nothing

    7. Creator Niels Braakman on November 14

      I contacted kickstarter regarding the no rewards, no update situation. Not expecting too much, but we'll see what happens.

    8. Creator Thorsten Becker on November 13

      Chiming in as well, never received anything. Still waiting on book and original page art. Funded December 2012. At this point it's a grab and run.

    9. Creator Niels Braakman on November 11

      nothing here either, 17 months since filling out the survey.
      one update in february and that's it...

      I've tried contacting them through kickstarter and through the steamworld chronicles website "contact us" option.

      Kickstarter projects can take time - it warns backers in their code of conduct that it may take longer than one would expect or like.

      However, the least one should expect is some form of update regarding the shipping status. Even if it were only "Oops, sorry folks, totally miscalculated the amount of time, will be another xxx months. We've not forgotten you, but please be patient a little longer. Sincere apologies" or whatever.

      That way they can finish their thing and get us our promised stuff, without people getting wound up (too much).

    10. Creator Kevin Captiva on November 1

      Filled out my survey in June of 2013 lol

    11. Creator Alex Johnson on October 20

      What a ripoff.

    12. Creator Aimee Hudson on October 11

      Yeah, nothing here either. What really ticks me off is I met these guys at NYCC last year, and they were all 'oh yeah shipping any time now" - lied to my face.

    13. Creator Colin Lloyd on October 7

      I haven't received anything at all from this.... its October 2014, I responded to the survey over a year ago.

    14. Creator Tore Hatlen on September 22, 2014

      I also never received my hard copy. Would like to be able to be able to hold a copy in my hands. Please update.

    15. Creator John White on September 16, 2014

      I just realized I never got my hard copy or my original pages. Sadly it looks like I am not the only one. Any updates at all? I know things can get busy but you signed a binding contract to fulfill your rewards. Time to either step up or start offering refunds. This is especially bad since your last update said you were ready to ship. Come on. A lot of people put their money and faith in you. Stand up and do the right thing.

    16. Creator Jeremy The Jinx on September 3, 2014

      So are these still coming? Has anyone got a copy? Can We get an update?

    17. Creator Tristin on September 3, 2014

      How do we get a refund?

    18. Creator Frank Krulicki on August 19, 2014

      Refund now please! This is crazy!! krufrank@outlook.com

    19. Creator Kevin Captiva on August 2, 2014

      Yeah still nothing. At least put out a update.

    20. Creator Scott Phelps on July 27, 2014

      Still no hard copy. How do I get my money back?

    21. Creator docwho2100 on July 18, 2014

      Received my comic! can not wait for the second one!

    22. Creator Kevin Captiva on July 17, 2014

      I agree. Just give a update about the shipping.

    23. Creator Daniel Martinez on July 16, 2014

      So what's the deal? I don't mind waiting but not updating us on the details is infuriating. I have to say projects like this are what turns people off of Kickstarter.

    24. Creator Jeremy The Jinx on July 13, 2014

      No book here yet.Whats going on with the shipping? How far along are you? Will we get an E-mail? Updates anywhere in the works? All we want is information of whats happening with the project.

    25. Creator Tristin on July 11, 2014

      Still have yet to receive my book. Any updates?

    26. Creator Niels Braakman on July 10, 2014

      How is shipping progressing?
      I live in Europe, still haven't gotten my physical copy... :(

    27. Creator Kevin Captiva on June 17, 2014

      Hopefully I get mine soon then to along with the other stuff. Filled out the survey on June 9th last year.

    28. Creator Terry Peterson on June 15, 2014

      Got my book last week, and it turned out great! I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the story.

    29. Creator Steven Kohler on June 13, 2014

      According to their website you can pre-order the book now and it's supposed to ship in July.

      Interesting since we are several months without an update here.

    30. Creator Adrian on June 11, 2014

      Still looking for an update.

    31. Creator Kevin Captiva on May 28, 2014

      Give a update already.

    32. Creator Alex Johnson on May 28, 2014

      Sigh...

    33. Creator David Gibson on May 17, 2014

      No comment or update since February...very disappointing.

      I really was looking forward to this, especially the Simonson variant.

      Is this ever going to be mailed out????

    34. Creator Alex Johnson on May 7, 2014

      Anyone in NYC want to volunteer to help with shipping?

      I would, but it's 1500 air miles away.

    35. Creator Alex Johnson on May 7, 2014

      Do you think they are alive?

    36. Creator juryman00 on May 6, 2014

      Still waiting

    37. Creator Scott Phelps on April 25, 2014

      Should not take this long if shipments started in Feb.

    38. Creator Kevin Captiva on April 9, 2014

      Can we get a update?

    39. Creator Adrian on March 25, 2014

      One year later....
      Any updates?

    40. Creator Steven Kohler on February 11, 2014

      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.

    41. Creator Alex Johnson on February 1, 2014

      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.

    42. Creator Kevin Captiva on January 30, 2014

      Can we get a update on the physical copies? Thanks.

    43. Creator Adrian on January 14, 2014

      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.

    44. Creator Brandon Lee on December 7, 2013

      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?

    45. Creator Kevin Captiva on November 14, 2013

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

    46. Creator Alex Johnson on November 13, 2013

      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?

    47. Creator Adrian on November 4, 2013

      Still waiting on the physical copies.....any update?

    48. Creator Tristin on October 9, 2013

      Any update on when the physical copies might be shipped?
