Latest International Backer Update

Hey everyone,

After a back-and-forth with the fulfillment company, they are now telling us that they will be sending out the long-overdue packages to countries on the United States Postal Service approved list. For your convenience, here is the USPS page detailing where delivery has been disrupted:

The bottom line is that I believe the vast majority of shipments will finally take place to major international destinations, although there will likely still be some wait times in a few locations. Whatever the case, I'm very happy that these will be going out and I apologize unreservedly for this unforeseen delay. Granted, I realize no one could have anticipated the advent of COVID-19 and it was bound to cause some issues, but this delivery problem dragged on far too long and I'm very happy that it appears to be nearing resolution.

We appreciate your patience very much, and can't wait for the rest of you to get your copies. Don't be shy about letting us know you got 'em! And look for a big announcement regarding issue #2 coming soon!

Take care,

The Outpost 426 Team

International Backer Update

Hey everybody,

I just wanted those of you outside of the U.S. who haven't received your items to know we've reached out to the publisher's fulfillment arm today. We told them international customers have been receiving their packages from other campaigns and that we expect them to resume mailings. If they balk at it then we're going to have them return the unsent merchandise to us so we can send it out ourselves. I know the pandemic took everyone by surprise but you should have gotten your orders by now and it's unacceptable that you haven't. I apologize unreservedly for the delay and we're going to do something about it in the very near future, likely sometime this week. Watch this space.

Take care and stay safe.

Mike

Scorpiana #2 and International Orders
25 days ago – Mon, May 11, 2020 at 08:45:07 PM

Hey everybody,

I'm writing to touch base with everybody on a couple of topics. First, I want our international backers to know that we haven't forgotten about you, and we recently reached out to the fulfillment company about the status of those orders. Unfortunately, their shipping department is still having products they attempt to mail outside of the U.S. returned to them, so the pandemic is keeping that in check. Let's all keep our fingers crossed that we'll get this outbreak under control and the mail system can get back to semi-normal soon. We are truly sorry for the delay and promise that you'll get your merchandise just as soon as is possible. For those of you who want to enjoy the story before your comics arrive, the BackerKit store is still live and offers digital versions of the comic that no virus can contain!

The second order of business is the news that Scorpiana #2 is in production and the campaign for that will be kicking off in a few short weeks. The script is complete, the interior art is drawn, and it's presently being colored. Sadly, our usual letterer contracted COVID-19, and while he's on the road to recovery, we've had to locate someone else to handle those duties for this issue. We're also lining up a few more cover artists to give you the variety and quality you've come to expect. The project will be on offer before you know it, so watch this space!

Anyway, take care, and by all means, stay safe.
