I was holding off on this update, hoping for better news, but all I have is something more concrete:
Star Power and the Lonely War is printed! The books are slated to board a slow boat from China (any Carmen Sandiego reference is a good one in my book) sometime next week.
There was apparently a hold up in the bindery process, which delayed production somewhat, but they are now, in fact, finished and all that is left is delivery to us and then delivery to you! The shipping to us part will probably take about 4 weeks, and then delivery to you, our fine and patient backers, should happen within a week or two after that. So, we're looking at a final delivery of sometime around the end of July.
Yes, I know, that is far longer than our initial anticipated turn around. We seem to have run into a variety of speed bumps on this particular production that we have not previously faced. Call it a learning experience. Our apologies, again, for the delays. Thank you all for being so patient and understanding. We're in the home stretch now, so bear with us just a little longer and we will have the best damn comic you ever did see in your eager hands before you know it.
Thank you again.
While We Wait

While we wait for Volume 4: Star Power and the Lonely War to slowly make its way across the Pacific, we find ourselves wondering: What's Danica currently up to?
Why falling into the elaborate and sinister machinations of an eccentric rich composer! Issue 23 started updating on Monday over at starpowercomic.com, so if you're not already reading along, you should! It'll help fill the time while we wait.
In other news, Michael and I will be at Escape Velocity at the end of the month, and at Con Carolinas the weekend after. If the opportunity permits, do come say hi to us, we'd love to meet ya.
That's all the Star Power news we got for now, folks. Remember, if you haven't filled out your Backerkit survey, ya should! If you need to change your address or any order information, you can log back in using the link you were sent and make those changes. If you lost the email or never received one, you can request a new one by clicking THIS LINK.
Thank you all again for your ongoing support. We could not make Star Power what it is without you all.

You'll be happy to note that everything is finally coming together! We're still hard at work over here finalizing everything, but important roadblocks are surpassed!
We've gotten initial design work for the bonus Psi Cop posters that everyone with a physical reward tier will be receiving.
And with that out of the way it means that you can expect to see invites to your BackerKit surveys soon! Surveys should be going out by the end of the week, so keep an eye on your email. Remember, we can't get you your rewards if you don't fill out your BackerKit surveys. If you find you need to change mailing address, you'll be able to log back in and change that info. We'll give you all a heads up to get those finalized before we lock down the surveys. At this point, we're expecting to be able to start shipping probably around early May unless something unexpected happens.
Thank you all for your patience and support!

Boy howdy it's been a spell hasn't it? We've been hard at work getting this book ready for print, and basically everything is super ready and looks amazing. It's gonna be killer.
But we've hit something of a snag. Remember that Psi Cop stretch goal we hit? The one that committed us to making awesome Psi Cop posters? That one? Yeah, well, as it turns out Garth has had a hard time squeezing those into his build schedule, and it feel's super weird sending out backer surveys and what not, without previews of what those Psi Cop posters will look like. Hence the delay.
The good news is that it the delay should be over shortly. Garth's cranking through art as fast as he can, and we should have surveys ready to go out within the week. Keep your fingers, toes, tentacles, and other appendages crossed, fellow sentients. We're super sorry about the delay, but it shouldn't be much longer now.

We did it! We funded Danica's 4th adventure! Star Power and the Lonely War will one day soon sit upon your book shelf and add to the ambiance and prove your tastes in comics to be most discerning! Thank you all who helped make this possible. We're going to knuckle down over here and finish prepping the files and getting all our i's dotted and t's crossed.
