The Book is Done...reviewing proofs

A quick update for our backers: I have finished putting the book together and have submitted it to the printer. We are currently on our second round of reviews of the proofs (which is not uncommon). I think we'll have it nailed down after this round, and then the printer can give me a more solid delivery date for the books so I can fill orders.
I'm very happy with the way this book came together. The new bonus stories look fantastic, we have an exclusive story about Albert learning about Yoga, and we've included some character design pages - something we've never done before!
I'll keep you posted as we get updates from the printer on the proofs and the delivery date. Stay tuned, and thanks again for supporting Albert the Alien vol 4!
Did you miss the Kickstarter but still want to pre-order?

If you supported the Kickstater, you can ignore this e-mail: your survey will come out closer to when the book will ship, and you'll have the option to see our add-ons and get more copies, if you desire. If you followed the campaign and were not able to pre-order the book, this is for you!
I had a number of people following the Kickstarter who were not able to support before the campaign ended. But don't worry, we've got you covered!
We're going to be doing our survey's through Backerkit, and because of that, we get to set up a pre-order store. Here's the link to the store!
Please let me know if there are any additional questions. More updates to follow, shortly!

It was a photo finish, but we made it. Thank you all so much for supporting us, and helping to share and spread the word about the project.
With 20 hours or so left, and about 60+ people following this project, I think it's quite possible for us to hit a stretch goal! We just need those 60+ people to pledge at the $25 level or higher, and we're at the $6k mark! Let's keep the strong momentum up!

It's the final countdown!
We're in the final hours of the campaign, and so very close to being funded. I want to thank each and every one of you for supporting this project, not only for pledging but also helping spread the word with links on your social media sites and the like. This project is so very special for Gabe and myself. We've been working on Albert the Alien for almost 10 years, and regularly for the last 6.
I'm putting the finishing touches on the book this week, while Gabe works on some bonus stories that are going into the book. This is going to be something truly special that we can't wait to share with you.
But we're not there yet!
We need everyone to please help by continuing to spread the word, share links to the campaign, and tell your friends about this incredible graphic novel project. We're only $250 away from funding this thing! Let's make it happen!
