      Personally I'd prefer a hardcover.

    2. Creator Rachel Deering on November 26

      @Rafa - That depends on what you guys and gals want. I can print up single issues for you, or I can send the hardcovers.

    3. Creator Rafa Reyes on November 26

      I just saw Anathema on previews magazine, page 368. Will we be getting single issues or the GN mailed to us?

    4. Creator Rachel Deering on November 13, 2014

      I am still alive. Titan has picked up the series for publication. The first trade will be released in April, I believe. A second trade will be released soon after, and it will all be finished and in the hands of backers. I apologize that it has taken so long, but this project has seen problems from day one. It was my first comic series, and I've learned a lot along the way. Please do not worry. I will deliver every bit of what was promised.

    5. Creator Bas Goedemans on November 13, 2014

      Rachel, are you still alive? It's awfully quiet here.
      I'm starting to worry.

    6. Creator Bas Goedemans on July 20, 2014

      Any updates? It's been another 4 months sinds the last update.

    7. Creator Rachel Deering on May 13, 2014

      @Rafa - I just sent an email to the publisher to see when our announcement was going to be made. I will let you know just as SOON as I get the go-ahead from them. Promise!

    8. Creator Rafa Reyes on May 13, 2014

      any news on who will be the publisher?

    9. Creator Phil on March 12, 2014

      It's been a while since the last update, any news? Really looking forward to the rest of the story...

    10. Creator Rachel Deering on February 21, 2014

      @Dale - Right. It has not.

    11. Creator Dale on February 21, 2014

      This hasn't shipped yet right?

    12. Creator Leslie Starkey on September 11, 2013

      Awesome, Thank You!

    13. Creator Rachel Deering on September 11, 2013

      Hey Leslie, I have a new shipment of books coming that are intended to fulfill the comix tribe reward tiers. I expected them weeks ago, but the printer is taking a bit more time. As soon as those are in, the CT packages are going out, and I can reclaim a large chunk of my living room! Haha.

    14. Creator Leslie Starkey on September 11, 2013

      Have the Comix Tribe packages gone out?

    15. Creator Linda Cartwright on July 1, 2013

      Thank you!

    16. Creator Rachel Deering on July 1, 2013

      Kimberly and Linda, neither of you should be concerned. A few updates back, I asked about sending the remaining issues out as one package deal to save on shipping, while still providing backers with PDF copies to hold them over until the physical books arrived. Everyone commented back and told me to do whatever I needed to in order to save a bundle on shipping, so that's what I had planned on doing. You will receive all of the issues at once, so no worries, your books aren't lost in the postal system or anything.

    17. Creator Linda Cartwright on July 1, 2013

      I pledged at the $45 level and have yet to receive any printed copies. Should I be concerned?

    18. Creator Kimberly Porter on July 1, 2013

      don't know if you sent out any of the other physical anathema copies but I'm still waiting for issue 2 onward personally (I have the first copy of anathema from backing the other kickstarter project though).

    19. Creator Keith Robinson on April 7, 2013

      You just made Bleeding Cool, nice job.

    20. Creator Rachel Deering on March 19, 2013

      No, thank YOU, Ron. I'm glad the books arrived safely. Thank you for being patient. I know they took a while to arrive.

    21. Creator Ron Vink on March 19, 2013

      Got mine today and they are in great shape and gorgeous. Thank you.

    22. Creator Chris Buchner on March 17, 2013

      Hi, I see in January you still had some issues to send out. Have they all been yet, because I'm still waiting on getting my first two issues.

    23. Creator James DiGioia on March 3, 2013

      Any updates on the pin up reward?

    24. Creator Travis Van Ness on February 21, 2013

      Hey Rachel, still looking for my copies. Getting close to a

    25. Creator Rachel Deering on January 6, 2013

      Hey Ron, I only have a few short stacks left to send out and then I will be completely finished with the issue 1 and 2 bundles. If you haven't received yours yet, it's probably in the stack. Thank you so much for your patience.

    26. Creator Ron Vink on January 6, 2013

      Any news on shipping of issues #1 and #2? Still have not received mine.

    27. Creator Amy Clark on December 20, 2012

      I received issues #1 and 2 last week and finally got the time to read them. Fabulous work!! If I have some fun money later on, I will definitely have to look into buying the rest of the series! Thank you so much! Congratulations again on the successful kickstarter, and best wishes on the upcoming issues. :D

    28. Creator Jess on November 28, 2012

      I also ordered the first 2 issues and was wondering when I'll receive my copies? :)

    29. Creator Travis Van Ness on November 20, 2012

      I ordered issues 1 and 2 and have not yet received them. We recently purchased a house and will be moving within the next couple of weeks. Can you tell me when to expect shipment?


    30. Creator Dale on September 28, 2012

      Thats cool Rachel, I just wanted a definitive answer so I'd know not to keep harassing the mailman. The waiting makes the wanting, which makes the reading all the more rewarding.

    31. Creator Rachel Deering on September 27, 2012

      Hey Dale, The people who ONLY get issues 1 and 2 should have their shipments soon. The people who get all 6 issues will get a bundle at the end of the run.

    32. Creator Dale on September 27, 2012

      Hi Rachel, What was the resolution of the vote on shipping? Are you holding them all to ship in one go or not? I see below you say you have already shipped one and two. I haven't received anything so can please advise either way whats going on?

    33. Creator denis mcelwaine on September 15, 2012…

      This is a kickstarter for a wristmounted pencil case that my friend launched. I have seen it in use and it is a quality product. So check it out.

    34. Creator Rachel Deering on September 15, 2012

      If you think it will do some good, you can post the link.

    35. Creator denis mcelwaine on September 15, 2012

      Is it ok if I advertise my friends kickstarter here?

    36. Creator Ron Vink on August 18, 2012

      Sounds good. Thanks for the update.

    37. Creator Rachel Deering on August 3, 2012

      We'll be there! Booth 1804!

    38. Creator Jeff Coffield on August 3, 2012

      Looks great. Can't wait to receive it and future issues.

      Still working on that Baltimore trip to hang with you and the Keene guy.

    39. Creator Rachel Deering on August 1, 2012

      Hey Ron. Issue 1 has been sent out. People who got issues 1 and 2 will have theirs sent together to save a bit on shipping.

    40. Creator Ron Vink on August 1, 2012

      Any news on shipping?

    41. Creator Christopher Walsh on July 10, 2012

      Rachel, I think I may have missed a window to send you my address when my wife & I donated for issue's #1 & 2. I also wondered if there was a way to make another donation to get issues #3-6. If you could contact me at I'd appreciate it.
      Thanks, Chris.

    42. Creator James DiGioia on June 5, 2012

      Also loved issue #1, glad the project was fully funded.

    43. Creator Rachel Deering on May 27, 2012

      Thanks so much! Issue 2 is even better, so have an extra pair of underwear ready for its release!

    44. Creator Maria Mercedes Martinez on May 27, 2012

      Holy shit!!! Issue 1 is Amazing!!!

    45. Creator Rachel Deering on May 16, 2012

      Hey Drew, you didn't miss anything. I learned my lesson last time about sending out the survey too early. People's addresses change like the wind! I'll be sending the survey in a week or two!

    46. Creator D Larson on May 16, 2012

      Did I miss the survey for the backer’s information? The last update has me a bit confused.

    47. Creator Rachel Deering on May 6, 2012

      Hey John, issue 2 should be finished sometime around the end of June, so I'd like to have the ads ready by then.

    48. Creator John B Badd on May 6, 2012

      Rachel, I have the add in the back of issue 2. I was wondering when you will need that buy so I can have it complete and up to date?

    49. Creator Rachel Degelos on May 5, 2012

      I got my first comic in the mail last week!!! I love it, but to continue the story is necessary because it only gives so much away.

    50. Creator Maria Mercedes Martinez on April 30, 2012

      Very happy for your success and looking forward to the comics!
