Use this space to cheer the creator along, ask questions, and talk to your fellow backers. Please remember to be respectful and considerate. Thanks!
And this is the reason people have trouble trusting Kickstarter people anymore. Her supporters worked with her and were even willing to wait for the combined versions (graphic novels) and for them to be shipped together (to save her money. We waited and waited and waited. Her response to the issue was to delete her kickstarter and social media accounts and run for the hills with no explanation. From my experience with Kickstarter, this is sadly pretty common.
This is outrageous. I and other backers paid money to get those remaining issues of Anathema. How are we meant to contact the creator (Rachel Deering) if she no longer has an active account here on Kickstarter?!
Welp this is disappointing, feel cheated cause I don't think anyone got the ending or the book. ಠ_ಠ
oh wow so shes just gone now? well that's disappointing.
Well... Seems like Rachel's disappeared from the face of the social media, and Anathema feels like it will never be in my hands to read in full, the story's going to be left unfinished and I'm left feeling sad as hell for that.
Ehm... am I missing something "Rachel Deering (deleted)"??
Hi Rachel, could you give us an update on the release?
Sooo...how's Anathema going?
@Stephanie Adams-Santos - The Amazon stuff is for the Titan release. I will be sending out all volumes once they are complete to save on shipping, as discussed in earlier updates. Sorry for any confusion.
Hey--I was browsing Amazon and noticed there was an issue of Anathema on there. I wasn't sure if I missed the release date, or what. Any chance you could update me?
@Adam Buckheit - I will post an update as soon as I have a solid release date for the full story and make sure to give everyone plenty of time to update their addresses.
So is there any sort of eta on the release date because I’ll probably be moving (twice) within the next couple of months.
@martynlesbirel - It has not shipped yet. Everything is shipping at once, and I'm waiting on Titan Publishing to release the second volume.
Was this shipped ? Going through my kick starter I remember I never saw it :(
@Danielle Horvath - I believe Kickstarter has implemented a system where all backers can update their own shipping information. I will look into that when it comes time to ship and provide instructions for everyone to make sure that their addresses are up to date.
My address will be changing, should I just message you the new when the items are ready to ship?
Wow, thanks for the quick reply (too bad I didn't read it until now) Was at Barnes and Nobles and saw the trade, looks great! Can't wait to read it!
@Michael Howard - Titan is publishing the book now, and will collect the series into two nice trades. I will either be sending those when they're ready or a nice full collection. Whatever Titan deems best. Single issues are not being produced at all.
Any updates? will I get the single issues, or a tpb?
Personally I'd prefer a hardcover.
@Rafa - That depends on what you guys and gals want. I can print up single issues for you, or I can send the hardcovers.
I just saw Anathema on previews magazine, page 368. Will we be getting single issues or the GN mailed to us?
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.
Rachel, are you still alive? It's awfully quiet here.
I'm starting to worry.
Any updates? It's been another 4 months sinds the last update.
@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!
any news on who will be the publisher?
It's been a while since the last update, any news? Really looking forward to the rest of the story...
@Dale - Right. It has not.
This hasn't shipped yet right?
Awesome, Thank You!
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.
Have the Comix Tribe packages gone out?
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.
I pledged at the $45 level and have yet to receive any printed copies. Should I be concerned? Linda_cartwright@att.net
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).
You just made Bleeding Cool, nice job.
No, thank YOU, Ron. I'm glad the books arrived safely. Thank you for being patient. I know they took a while to arrive.
Got mine today and they are in great shape and gorgeous. Thank you.
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.
Any updates on the pin up reward?
Hey Rachel, still looking for my copies. Getting close to a year...lol.
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.
Any news on shipping of issues #1 and #2? Still have not received mine.
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
I also ordered the first 2 issues and was wondering when I'll receive my copies? :)
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?
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.
