Thwimmers! Been a massive week here with all the news about receiving the hardcovers and all the fulfillment packages starting to ship out to our subscribers. In case you missed it:
(NOTE: if you have not yet received an email with your shipment details, give it another day or two. Everything should be out by tomorrow).
Plus, as you saw, we’ve released the digital version of the ENTIRE Sourcebook to subscribers:
All the news has led to many questions, and since I watch neither “Lord of The Rings” or “Game of Thrones” spin-off TV shows, I can’t really fill this space with yet another overcooked collection of way-too-strong TV opinions, so, let’s turn to some of you to find out what questions are lingering as we prepare for Year Two.
Thwimmer extraordinaire wynnesome writes about the book:
That's one heck of a "little black book." Quite the year's conceptual and creative accomplishments from the team. Congratulations, and thank you -- very excited for this package to arrive!
(Can you tell us what shipper to expect? Is it regular US Post Office? Will we actually receive a shipping notification with a tracking number, or just need to know to watch for the delivery?)
Our fulfillment partners use several different shipment services depending on location, so it’s hard to pinpoint which one you will get...HOWEVER...You will get a tracking number once your package is ready to go.
Is there a way to check my address for the shipments?
At this point, things are getting sent, so time is tight, but if you have questions or any address changes, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will do their best to help.
C. Drabble wants to know:
Any chance of a 2nd print run for us to order?
These unique edition hardcovers --with the Sasha E Head designed covers --are crafted exclusively for our Founder-level subscribers.
The softcover, though, is going out to annual subscribers and will be available from us directly at the upcoming New York Comic Con. More news on other ways to get it in the coming days.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
In the last 3Q3A column, the debate of the year about the best pizza was burning through the comments.
If you haven’t put your vote in, now is the time. As the 3W3M tour continues over the next few years, we want to hit all these places. Maybe with some of you!
THIS WEEK’S BEST THING
I’m a recent convert to Blackwing pencils which are fantastic writing utensils for giving notes on long-winded universe-building comic scripts filled with words I’ve never seen before.
Anyway, this month they also debuted a new writing pad themed to legendary animator Chuck Jones.
It’s a very cool item, and even though I can’t draw worth a lick (according to del Mundo, anyway), it totally makes me wish I could. Check it out.
You’ve been very patient as we dealt with printing issues over the past few weeks and now that patience will be paid off!
Keep watching this space for a LOT of news headed your way over the next few days including details on our New York Comic Con appearances and our ever-popular event (SOMEONE PLEASE REMIND ME TO TAKE MORE PICTURES THIS TIME!)
More soon. Have a great week.
