@Roxanne Starr: Roxanne, put a link in the OP?

#3 Posted by lykopis (10746 posts) - - Show Bio

@Roxanne Starr: It okay, I found it. I'll put it in here.

Tonis has been nothing but amazing on Comic Vine and an amazing supporter of the Artist's Forum. Due to his efforts, there has been some real community interaction amongst the phenomenal talents here on the Vine so anything to support him in his endeavours would be more a privilege than a favour. Even his last status was to promote voting on the monthly artist contributions he had been running before being forced to eat, live and breathe this project.

Way to go Tony! (and everyone else involved)

:)

Many thanks on Tony's behalf for spreading the word, Lyko!

Not to mention the thanks of Velcro...who lives to eat another day!

Nothing was projected, lyko. That $12,500 goal was merely a number that Bob pulled out of his butt.

Nobody here had any idea how much money we could raise. Whatever we end up with in 6 hours was totally determined by the backers. :-)

Thanks, lyko!

You not only missed seeing Bob...you missed seeing Velcro too!

Bob was only live for a couple of hours, but you'll have plenty of opportunities to see him live in the future. He likes the live-stream format.

Congrats on a successful campaign!  Forty-two thousand dollars...that is some serious coin. :D
 
When I receive my books I will display them with pride. *salutes*

@M.S. Feather:

Thanks again for pledging, Feather! Fulfillment begins today.

Bob and Tony are at the warehouse right now gathering up stuff to send to a large portion of the 708 backers.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/592668574/flaming-carrot-hardback-and-digital-comics

Of course those who only pledged for digital products will be easily taken care of, but they only account for about a third of the orders.

Even though The Wild Shall Wild Remain hardcover hasn't been printed yet, there are so many other prizes that need to be mailed, that we are getting the packages with their printed mailing labels ready ahead of time. We want all our orders satisfied ASAP, so we can move on to the NEXT kickstarter...which will have a far larger goal...since it will be a far more expensive project.

When the guys get back with some negatives that I need, I'll get to work preparing the pages of the hardcover ready for the printer. But not before I take Tony shopping at the grocery and liquor store.

Tony won't eat anything that Bob eats and Bob won't eat anything that Tony eats. Picky, picky, picky...LOL!

@Roxanne Starr: I can feel the excitement from here (about the shipping not the liquor)! :P
 
Yesterday I started on something I'm making as a sort of thanks to you and Bob.  Nothing big but I still hope you find it satisfactory.

@Roxanne Starr:

We are using our kickstarter backers' list to start a mailing list for the BOBBURDENCOMICS.COM online store, so we can continue to sell merchandise to all you Christmas shoppers!

It should be operational by Thanksgiving!!!

The postcards make great stocking stuffers! :D
