      I've been trying to ask Tom if there is any updated on my picture and haven't heard anything, I saw him sketch it in a live stream, so what's up?

    2. Creator Futeko on September 23, 2014

      Received my package today (hardcovers + sketch; delivery in Europe) - they look great! Thank you very much Tom - was definitely worth the wait!

    3. Creator Jesse McCausland on September 19, 2014

      Well that bad news went out the window relatively quickly. Caught Tom in the chatroom and he told me the complete drawings are still in progress. Thanks again Tom.

    4. Creator Jesse McCausland on September 19, 2014

      Well a bit of bad news from my wife, the drawing is just a sketch instead of a full color drawing as stated in the reward description. Just curious if others of this tier got the same or am I the anomaly.

    5. Creator Jesse McCausland on September 19, 2014

      Glad to say that my package came in today. My lovely wife decided to bestow this news to me during work, so now I feel refreshed and ready to speed through my work pile and get back home.

    6. Creator Steven King on September 18, 2014

      Contacted Tom and he told me that my package will come in two parts, so I'm glad he didn't forget.

      @Jonathan: He probably won't start on the next book(s) until he's finished with this order.

    7. Creator Jonathan Wester on September 16, 2014

      This whole process has felt amazing Tom. When are you thinking about book 3?

    8. Creator Rainer on September 12, 2014

      Finally got my package with a bonus of The Dragon Masquerade for free and was pleasantly surprised. Yay me!

    9. Creator Stephen Moore on September 12, 2014

      Yay! Got everything! Thanks Tom! The Dragon Masquerade was an excellent surprise!

    10. Creator Steven King on September 11, 2014

      ...and it's not all here...

    11. Creator Steven King on September 11, 2014

      Alright, I finally got my package.

    12. Creator Eoin on September 10, 2014

      After a ridiculously busy day at work what did I find waiting for me? To be quite honest it made my day being able to set my eyes on the hardcover books which I might add look really good by the way as well as the posters and the sketch. Thank you very much Tom for the hard work!

    13. Creator James on September 10, 2014

      I am quite happy to say that I received a very welcome surprise in my mailbox today in the form of my bundle of physical goods. The two hardcover books look absolutely amazing and I was surprised to find a copy of The Dragon Masquerade included in my bundle, tucked safely between the two hardcovers. Tom, if you still check these comments at all, thank you very much. All the work you have done to try and get these bundles shipped out to everyone is truly appreciated.

    14. Creator Rebecca W on September 9, 2014

      Happy to announce that my books and posters portion arrived safely - they look beautful (especially when I compare it to the original first volume I have).

      Just need to wait for the last part *so giddy with anticipation*

    15. Creator Jesse McCausland on September 9, 2014

      Word of your notice has me checking my inbox repeatedly now Kaiser. Eager doesn't even begin to describe the anticipation of the arrival of my own.

    16. Creator ultimatekaiser on September 7, 2014

      Got a shipment notice. Looks like we're getting down to the gritty finish.

    17. Creator Nir D on August 21, 2014

      So...talked with Tom 4 months ago on IRC. Didn't hear from him since. At this point I really doubt that I will ever see my package.
      It's nice that people are getting his new comic while some of us are still waiting for the first one >.>

    18. Creator Katerater on August 4, 2014

      Hi, I received my physical items (finally) yay, a bit ago... but Im checking my email and junk folder for the digital stuff. ;___; Im not seeing anything. I would love to get my digital rewards please. I have been carefully going through my junk mail for a while now so I know I didn't miss it!

    19. Creator David McMurry on July 18, 2014

      It's starting to look like I'm going to have to write this off as a donation to Tom. My package apparently went to the wrong place the first time he shipped it, and now, almost three months later it is still somewhere out there. I get the feeling it went to the wrong place again.

      And no response to PM's still, though I notice he has responded to a question on an update about another thing he wants to sell. Oh well. I just really looked forward to re-reading the comic in book form.

      I notice he's still on the twokinds (the comic not the kickstarter) webchat, you can try him there maybe? I wish we had an email we could reach him at since kickstarter obviously isn't working for him.

      You're right, he did get a lot of orders, and this isn't amazon. But, you know, it really isn't so very hard to type up a 15 minute update every month or so, when there are people who still don't have their stuff promised to them when most of it is allegedly out the door. Especially after two years of waiting.

    20. Creator James on July 10, 2014

      So, we are now two and a half months past the last update from anyone about this project, there's been no communication from Tom via Kickstarter or the comic site itself as to what is actually going on with the remaining bundles and packages to be sent out. Has anyone had any response via email or such about anything here? Helpdesk chat is always empty as well, so no help there.....more than a touch concerned here.

    21. Creator foxfirerage on July 5, 2014

      his goal was 25,000 he got over 7 times that. He has to do a crap ton of drawings in the books for the high end backers and sign and sort and ship stuff for dam near 25 hundred people. Give the man a break O_o most of the delays were do to the printing company losing his books. Now he can spend all day every day responding to spammed emails or he can keep crunching away and get the project done. I know what one I would prefer he spend his time on >.>
      Kickstarter is not amazon you are backing peoples projects not shopping online >.>

    22. Creator ultimatekaiser on June 22, 2014

      Yeah still waiting on mine.... Hope I get it soon. It's sad to wait this long... We could have a whole new volume by now. Geez.

    23. Creator David McMurry on April 25, 2014

      @Quentin Altemose

      Believe it or not, this is actually a pretty uncommon for a comic project on kickstarter. I've had a couple others that did not like to update, but I've received rewards to almost every other project I've backed (and this was my first) that hasn't otherwise failed or had a longer estimated date.

      I have no idea what's going on over there, I assume it's very stressful, but I hope he updates us here at some point. There are obviously people still receiving their stuff, but I've yet to get a shipping email so I have no idea what's going on. Sounds like a lot of stuff is getting damaged in transit, I wonder who is handling the shipping.

      @Nir D: He hasn't responded to my messages either in the last year. :/

    24. Creator Nir D on April 25, 2014

      Tom, why are you not replying to my messages? It has been close to 4 months since you sent my package... and still nothing. I keep sending emails and messages through kickstarter since january.

    25. Creator Quentin Altemose on April 23, 2014

      I will honestly say that I will NEVER ever back another project on Kick Starter ever again. This was a horrible experience. Lack of communication and updates have been horrible and it is 2 years now since I backed this project ...and I still have nothing.

    26. Creator vlf on April 4, 2014

      Got mine just yesterday, damaged package, but contents were in one piece :3

    27. Creator Anthea on April 3, 2014

      My package arrived here in Germany today. By the look of the package I feared the worst for the content, because it was not in a good condition. But due to some very good packing the books were completely undamaged. And I really enjoy reading that story again! There definitely is a sensoric difference between the online comic version and the printed version. So now I am waiting for the next books.

    28. Creator Daniel Butler on April 2, 2014

      just got mine today hear in the UK. The poster was badly damaged though but its hear and done at long last.

    29. Creator Fab on April 1, 2014

      Got mine on Monday 31st March! Quality - Thanks Tom.

    30. Creator Newker on March 31, 2014

      Hey tom any word on the plushies?

    31. Creator Taint on March 31, 2014

      My package arrived today in the UK. Some of the worst transit damage I've seen, but they're here at the very least.

    32. Creator Georgi Nikolov on March 31, 2014

      From Bulgaria here and my books and posters just arrived in a surprisingly good condition for flying across the world (and going through my country's postal service). Thank you very much Tom and i wish for you to have even more success in your future endeavors.

    33. Creator Charadan on March 30, 2014

      My books have arrived here in Australia! Thankyou so much!

    34. Creator Jasper on March 23, 2014

      Some two years of waiting and my books and posters have finally arrived. Their condition is pretty good for having traveled across the continent. There is some crumpling around where the posters were wrapped around the books and the corners of the books are a little bit dinged up as well but the posters have smoothed out after a few days under a stack of books ad the two hard covers are no worse than shelf wear as you'd see at a store. I suppose I'm just used to the pampered treatment of Amazon's boxes and bubble wrap.
      All in all I'd say it's definitely been worth the wait. I'm looking forward to your next book Tom. Thank you so much.

    35. Creator Jonathan Wester on March 22, 2014

      I've still yet to receive mine either

    36. Creator Asaril on March 21, 2014

      I got a shipping confirmation :) -> Germany

    37. Creator Ben on March 21, 2014

      Hello. I had paid for the $200 reward. I have heard nothing about how soon I will get it, nor a tracking number, or anything. I am a little concerned about when I will receive the items I paid for.

    38. Creator unknownwisdom on March 20, 2014

      its here. they're perfect absolutely beautiful.

      THANK YOU !!!!

    39. Creator Escobar on March 20, 2014

      It has arrived!
      It's all here, it's in perfect condition and it all looks beautiful. Thank you very much Tom!

    40. Creator Rebecca W on March 12, 2014

      @ Escobar "The waiting game sucks, let's play hungry hungry hippos!"

      On a serious note, I just want to thank all the backers that say they have got shipping notifications and their physical rewards - yes seriously.

      It helps me know that even though it is taking a while that my reward will come ^_^v

    41. Creator Escobar on March 10, 2014

      (Australia) Just got my shipping notice today! So now we play the waiting game.

    42. Creator Anthony W on March 9, 2014

      Canadian still no notice of shipping =/

    43. Creator victorymon on March 3, 2014

      its here! Its finally here!
      2 weeks ago I had a message that it was on the way and now its here in germany.
      Thanks a lot Tom, whenever you make the next book you can count on me to support you again!

    44. Creator Nuclearcupcake on March 1, 2014

      Got my books a few days ago, took just over a week to get to the UK since I got the shipping confirmation :) Very happy with everything

    45. Creator Daniel Kloed on February 27, 2014

      My stuff arrived today, so took about 8-9 days to get from the USA to the UK. All arrived in good condition, the posters were folded around the books but they should flatten out.

      Oh and there were no additional postage charges.

    46. Creator AuricBeast on February 27, 2014

      I just got everything today. It was a long wait, but well worth it.

    47. Creator William Jex on February 25, 2014

      Canada here. I got everything in full and great condition, Thanks Tom!

    48. Creator Katerater on February 25, 2014

      Hey other backers!
      Canadian here, JUST got my shipping email! (there is hope?!!?)
      But still no digital portion of my reward >.<

    49. Creator Cosmac Elf on February 23, 2014

      I"m a US backer - $500 reward level. I have received nothing. Would like to at least get a copy of the hardback books. Thanks.

    50. Creator Mitchell Frazer on February 22, 2014

      >.< turns out the shipping notification I got was from a different kickstarter, so I am still waiting for mine, anyways still patient.

      P.S Saw Tom on Markiplier's stream today, didnt know you guys were brothers.
