Digital Fulfillment + Books Ordered!
4 days ago – Sun, May 19, 2024 at 05:25:22 PM

Friends - those of you that ordered DIGITAL COPIES of Volumes 1 or 2 of TALES FROM THE CLOAKROOM or CICADA SAMURAI 00 should have just received an email from BackerKit with links to those files.

Files for your physical copies of Tales AND The CloakRoom #1 are with the printer!

As soon as we have and start mailing out your books, we will distribute the digital copies of The CloakRoom #1.

And as soon as you start receiving those packages, WE WILL SET ISSUE #2 LIVE!  Follow along here:

Fulfillment is approaching!

Friends - we're finalizing our print files in and putting in our order in the next few days. Should have books in my hands in about 2 weeks and then the real fun begins...

I just cycled through the BackerKit survey responses and want to remind you that a few of you (just a few, really) have not yet completed the survey. If you got all digital rewards, this is not the end of the world (although it is still SUPER helpful if you go and answer the 2 questions in there just so I can check you off my list...).

A few of you have already paid through Kickstarter for physical rewards, and I can't ship those to you unless you fill out a survey and tell me where to send your books.

So check your emails and your spam filters and get back to us... OH - and be on the lookout because we've already got issue 2 of The CloakRoom locked and loaded and ready to launch in May with more great stories about zombies, people who are turning into cartoons, mermaid murderers, and shades. 

God I love comics....

Reminder - check your email for your surveys!

Friends - Just dropping a reminder to please check your inboxes and spam folders for an email from BackerKit with your survey. If you ordered a physical copy of the book or any add-on, we need your shipping info!  About 40 of you haven't done the survey yet.

If you are a digital only reward tier supporter, it would still be great if you could complete the survey. It will just be one question for you about whether you'd like to join the Thorny Comics mailing list. We won't spam you... promise! Just want to engage with comics fans and keep you updated on our future projects, like Cicada Samurai, The Grizzly Crew, and more issues of The CloakRoom.

Also - our second issue will have a pre-launch campaign up in a couple of weeks. So by the time you all receive your rewards in the mail, we'll be about ready to launch the next issue. We're going to stay on that schedule (an issue every 3 months) until people in Scott's writing workshop stop writing comics or until Scott tells us to stop!

Thanks again for your your support. We're really excited to share these stories with you, and think you'll be excited about the next two issues we've got planned as well!

We did it!

Thank you all for supporting this project! We are fully funded and can’t wait to get these stories to you. Be on the lookout in the next week or so… you’ll be getting a survey from BackerKit so we can collect your shipping info and distribute your digital rewards.

I know a lot of you are listening to Scott right now talk about crafting action scenes, so I’ll keep it brief… just wanted to say thanks and we'll be in touch real soon!

One Day Left!

Hey all - thanks for supporting The CloakRoom!  We're entering our final day of the campaign, so just wanted to say thanks and point out that our super-limited signed-by-Scott-Snyder copies of this first issue are still available. We're only allowing a maximum of 10 altogether, and only 3 have been claimed so far! This is an add-on exclusive, available only to physical backers, and will be a rare collectible! Check it out below, and check out the campaign page for new sample interior pages from every story in this issue!
