Project Update: The End is nigh! The campaign ends TOMORROW! One last goal revealed!

Hi everyone!

We have been pretty silent here with no true updates since the campaign launched -- I woefully admit that I failed to mention the fact that I would be traveling these past 2 weeks, with little anticipated internet access, hence the lack of correspondence here. We're back, however, and just in time for the big finale!

Since the last update, you've unlocked 3 bonus stretch goal items that will be added to EVERY PHYSICAL ORDER!

And we're less than $500 away from unlocking a FOURTH Bonus item --


With only one day left, we went ahead and revealed the FINAL STRETCH GOAL: a 2" metal Challenge Coin featuring artwork by Peach Momoko!


To be honest, I'm not sure if we'll hit that final goal -- these past 2 weeks have been flatter than usual, which may be due to our traveling, but who knows... $5k in the final day should be achievable, but based on the mathematical averages of the campaign over the past 3 weeks, hitting that final goal will be a real squeaker...

So do us a favor and tell all of your friends to join the campaign in this last day! We'd love to add another ASTER coin to your collection! 😎

Project Update: Belated THANK YOU!

Hi everyone!

I know we're late on expressing this considering the campaign ended last night, but THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
To be honest, I've been sick since yesterday morning and I totally slept through the grand finale... that is so unlike me! :P Even today I'm pretty bedridden, but I just had to express our gratitude for making this such a great campaign.

What's next, you ask?
We'll get the Pledge Manager set up next week so that we can get surveys out to you shortly. The new book is done and it is going to the printer this week, along with the slipcase files. We should be all set to have everything ready to ship to you in October.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask here in the comments, or email us at [email protected].

Once again, THANK YOU for your support (and I'm sorry we weren't there at the final buzzer to thank you properly at that time!) :)

Project Update: The Last Call for Address Updates + Backer Bonus Sneak Peaks!

Hey gang, Sylphy here with another quick update for you!

We're fast approaching the final deadline to get your survey submitted for shipping! June 3rd is the very last day we're accepting surveys! Please make sure that you are doing so ASAP if you haven't already or submit an email to [email protected] if you're encountering some kind of funky error when trying to update!

We're still getting emails for this daily, so please do so right now if you can, as we need to get final counts in to make sure everybody gets everything! If you don't get your surveys in, we're not going to be able to get your physical rewards out to you!

Project Update: Shipments Beginning!

Happy Wednesday! Sylphy here! As you may have been spotting around the internet, packages of Smut Peddler X and My Monster Girlfriend have begun to ship out! Please keep an eye out for your books to arrive to you shortly over the next 7-10 days.


However once you receive your package, there is something to note before you reach out: If you got a pin and are also getting a poster, these are being shipped together independently of the books.

At this time we are hanging off on issuing out the posters until they have all been signed regardless of whether you requested a signed copy or not as they are being issued in cylindrical mailing tubes. The pins themselves will be put into small bubble mailers within the tube mailers so that they do not scratch the posters.

Once you see 'em you'll go "wow that photo doesn't do it justice".


Only those who only got the pin for first day backing with the books will see that arrive with their books. So if you only see your books arrive, don't panic! You will get a second tracking number later with your other items.

Have a great rest of your week everyone! 👾

Project Update: The Terminator Corrections & Continuity Fixes

Hey, Terminator fans,

We're working on the content of the three volumes in this set and we wanted to open this up to fans to contribute and help us make the best books possible.  There are a few points in the comics where something was missed in the continuity of the original books when they were published.  Here's a good example:

In the original Dark Horse comics - the story is set in 1990.  BUT...the editor confirmed that it really should have been set in 1984.  Here's the panel with the mistaken date:


An eagle-eyed fan spotted that and we're looking to correct it.  Similarly, in The Terminator: One Shot - there's a typo calling Sarah's husband "John" instead of "Michael" in one panel.  For the rest of the issue he's referred to as Michael.  Minor, sure - but since we have the power to correct it - we want to make these books as good as they can be.

We plan to fix those issues.  But we wanted to see if there are any other things that fans have spotted.  So we are opening it up to you - the most passionate Terminator fans - to see if you have any other things that seem wrong with the timeline or continuity in the issues we are collecting.  Please post your notes here and let us know!  If we can verify the correct information, and it's something fixable, we'll see what can be done to adjust any other chronological anomalies in the timeline!  

Thanks for helping us to make this project a big success!  We can't wait to get these books out to everyone.

Project Update: THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY ELBOW

Well, holy macaroni, thank you for supporting the production of the third issue of WORN TUFF ELBOW. The goal was reached yesterday in 36 hrs! I am very humbled by this of course, I appreciate it. 

And yesterday I went for a walk in the woods with a friend near UBC (University of British Columbia). It was nice and quiet but I was, of course, looking at my phone constantly to see how things were going with my crowdfunding here (ha, this was not exactly a pure west coast "natural world" experience). I was excited and surprised it was going so well. I mean, people have things to do and are dealing with their own stuff, pressing matters more important than this and things not even necessarily to do directly with themselves. Anyway, upon returning to my nay-bor-hood [sic] I picked up some GADO GADO (this was my own concern, to do this).

There is a number I talk about in the intro to WORN TUFF ELBOW #3. Number 52. I was sort of preoccupied with this number in my youth (as a teenager) and I would often put it in my art around that time. I was preoccupied with it because it seemed to reveal itself to me at very curious times. And quite often. I also wondered what I would be doing at the age of 52. Anyway, I was given a number for my GADO GADO order on the receipt and so, of course:

GADO GADO

 

Yes, that's right. "I will be making comic books at the age of 52". I should have known. 

I will send some updates soon about progress moving forward and timelines (as far as I know this comic book will still ship out in September no problem whatsoever) and I will also be thinking about what to create for the FREE MYSTERY ITEM (that will be sent to the people who pledged in the first 48 hrs).

Project Update: Neil Vokes has FINISHED Fright NIght #5 Art!

Another quick update for all our Fright Night fans.  Our incredible artist - Neil Vokes has finished the art for the final issue in the Fright Night arc - #5!  This issue is HUGE - the story just could not be held in a regular sized comic.  So keep an eye out for info on the final issue as we get the last pages from color.  Right now we are still missing about 9 of the 27 pages of story from the issue from coloring.  And then the file needs to be lettered.  But things are in the home stretch!  Here's the picture Neil sent us of him putting the pen down on the issue!


I'd say "let's give him a hand" but...well you know.  

So keep an eye out here.  We'll start sharing some color pages.  And we're working to get the collection print files ready.  We'll keep you updated.

Thanks!!!

Project Update: Mel Rubi's Autograph Tip-In Added For All Terminator Set Levels!

The Terminator is almost here!  We've got just 4 hours left in the campaign before the T-800 is set in motion on its inevitable mission.  To celebrate the incredible fan response we've had, we are pleased to announce that we are going to include an autographed tip-in bookplate by Mel Rubi - the artist of The Terminator: The Dark Years mini-series - in each set of graphic novels purchased!  So whether you bought the trade paperbacks, the hardcovers, or the metal cover books - as long as you purchase a set at the special Backerkit discounted price - you will get the autograph for your collection!  These are exclusive to fans who supported directly!  Our additional way of thanking you.


We worked really hard to make sure these books were an incredible value for our Backerkit supporters.  If you purchase the trade sets each volume is only $30 but they are $39.99 retail and the hardcovers are $40 each in the sets but they are $49.99 retail.  You're saving $30 by ordering the sets in this project over waiting for the retail release next year in 2025.  That's all part of our special thank you to backers who have helped to make this project happen.

Please help us to spread the word so as many Terminator fans can get in on the special value before time runs out.  Thank you!

Project Update: Status Report: Shipping in Progress!

Greetings Backers!

Time for another full status report. This one is mostly about shipping posters.

TL:DR: 
We’re about half way through shipping out the posters that are being mailed in tubes. Then we’ll have a pause while we wait for the Maxims books to be delivered from the printer. Your next status report will be the week of May 27-31. 

We’ve still got 62 backers who haven’t filled out their surveys. If you’ve lost your link you can click here to login and finish your survey. I can’t ship your items until I know where to mail them!

Shipping in progress!

We’ve shipped out 811 orders. Many of those were “digital only” or orders that became “digital only” because physical items were combined with Mandatory Failure. We’ve also shipped out orders that were posters only, posters + pocket reference, and posters + M70 fobs.
This week we’re working on orders that contained both rolled posters and books. We’ll be sending out 277 posters in tubes over the next week. The books and other items will ship out once we have books in hand. 
The remaining 688 packages will start shipping as soon as we have books. 
If you have questions about the status of your particular package, I’m happy to answer them, just email [email protected].

If your order contained only posters, pocket reference, and M70 fobs then it is already in the mail. 



Deliverable Progress
  • Seventy Maxims Reprint – At the printer! I was told “at least six weeks” That suggests we’ll have books either the last week of May or the first week of June.  
  • Pocket Reference – DONE! Shipping in progress.
  • Blue Poster (1 column) – DONE! Shipping of posters-in-tubes happening now.
  • Brown Poster (2 column) – DONE! Shipping of posters-in-tubes happening now.
  • Illustrated Maxims digital images – DONE! You can collect these now by logging in via your Backerkit survey link. 
  • Seventy Maxims PDF – DONE! You can collect yours by logging in via your Backerkit survey link. Survey must be complete. 
  • Poster PDFs – DONE! You can collect these now by logging in via your Backerkit survey link. 



Details


The shipping management on this project was far more complex than originally anticipated. Hopefully I managed to prevent too much confusion for all of you. We had a manual process of changing orders to combine shipping with Mandatory Failure. We’ve also got orders that will split shipping because rolled posters have to ship in tubes while books have to ship in boxes. Fortunately Backerkit’s fulfillment system is completely up to the task. Everything is going smoothly. 


We’re keeping the shipping crew pretty small for this portion of the fulfillment process. It is just me, my warehouse manager Aidan, and one additional worker who gets called in when we have more than 75 packages to go out that day.  There are 277 more packages to ship (posters in tubes) before we hit a pause and have to wait for the books to arrive. I expect a couple of weeks wait time. We’ll use those to do general warehouse clean up and to prep the Random Merch bundles and the Random Art Bundles. We’ve got some nice surprises to go into both. 


The first task of prepping for poster shipping is to put caps on one end of all of the tubes.


At first we were using a mallet to get them into place, but then we discovered that the caps are flexible enough that we can press them in using our thumbs. That sped up the process considerably. (The old tubes required a mallet.) 


I didn’t get any pictures of the poster rolling because Aidan handled all of that on a day when I didn’t go to the warehouse at all. It is really lovely to be able to just assign work and have it happen when I’m not looking! (I spent my day working on Structuring Life to Support Creativity instead.) 


Then we have a day where we put in packing slips, any other items, and put labels on the outside of the poster tubes.


A quirk of these particular labels and tubes is that if left to themselves, the labels will slowly disengage from the poster tubes. We’ve solved this problem with an application of packing tape along the edges of the labels. The packing tape has no problem sticking to the cardboard tubes. 


Once everything is in place, we push caps into the ends of the tubes and they’re ready to be hauled to the post office for mailing. Hauled along with them are the regular store orders that Aidan packs at the regular shipping station.


We’ve already begun assembling boxes for the Random Merch bundles. We’ll get started on filling those as soon as we’ve got all the poster tubes into the mail.


Progress on all aspects of this project are nearing completion with the only question mark being exactly when the books will arrive. I am traveling during the first two weeks of June, so I’m REALLY hoping that we can get delivery of books before I take off. But if they do arrive while I’m gone, that is exactly what I’ve hired Aidan for, to manage my warehouse in my absence. 


Thank you so much for backing our project! Your next update will be the week of May 27-31. 


Howard and Sandra Tayler
