Sorry about any inconvenience. They're not having any trouble that I'm aware of. Occasionally things get held up in customs crossing the border, though, and that may account for the delay. You can email sales(at symbol)4de.com if you'd like to check up on your order, or else send me a PM containing the name you placed the order under and the transaction ID paypal should have provided you with, and I'll have the publisher contact you.

Well I just got the whole shebang dealy just last night.
The pin, all the buttons, the comic, the mousepad. Getting the calendar later.
Anyway, some pro n' cons:

The book:
- Pros
*It's very well printed, very smooth and the pictures are excellent. It's going to look pretty for a good long while.
- Cons
*The glue binding. I opened the back cover with all the care in the world and the thing made an atrocious tearing noise. The back page was binded to the back cover and the glue got brittle I guess. There was an unsightly white mark on a good portion of the spine and the back cover was loose. Let it set overnight and the glue seems to have settled back in, but I still can't open the book all the way. Some of the other pages are loose as well and I haven't even had the thing for a day.

Other than that some of the images are pretty small (The non-sequencer comics especially) but I'd expect that since they were downsized for print. There's some weird pacing issues that I noticed, like it going from Rocky straight to Wick without an indication or anything. Those two are very small nitpicks though, the binding is the only real issue.

The pins:
Pretty much all pro. They look excellent and they're a good size. Some of the metal needles were at wonky angles and I had to bend them into place but they're fine now. I'm wearing the Zib pin right now under my jacket, along with the Club pin.

The club:
Again, pretty much all good. I did notice that it looks like the pins are convex in the comic and these are flat but the bumps would probably catch on everything and scratch it to hell.

I'm yet to open the mousepad but it looks nice.

Overall, yes, buy it, but you'll want to be incredibly careful with the book, especially around the front and back.

I got the calendar just the other week and I love it. Now I can enjoy wonderful cats on my wall every day for the rest of the year and for the beginning of next year. X3

I have always wanted to buy the comics, and when I have the dough to spare I will definitely be purchasing SOMETHING!

I have been way out of this loop for far too long and I NEEEEEEED to get caught up and back into it! Oh, how I've missed this~

My main question is, do you plan on putting out the calendars again for the 2013 year? With different pictures i'm hoping?

Dood, thingy, everyone that ordered the signed hardcover is getting a free 2013 calendar. Or at least that's what this email says.

Also YAY free swag.

Did the glue binding for the books ever get fixed? I thought I heard more issues even after the glue was supposedly fixed.

Yes, if you order from the 4de.com store, they ship internationally. =)

Oh hey, do these new hardcover ones have any new stuff in it like the previews and sketches you've done inbetween?

I'd imagine those are being saved for Volume 2, but I'm hardly the final authority on the matter. :)
