YAY!!! No rush for me.... I waited this long, so I can wait until you are well rested! :wink:

Okay, except for one person that hasn't read their PM yet and one other I just messaged, I think I have everything mailed out now and just have a few things to hand off in person next weekend at LA Comic Con (seimaki, Grusagi, and Spam Musabi).

Of course, the Incredible Con cover is still MIA but it sounds like it's planned to be part of a Kickstarter campaign or something, so keep an eye out for info on that, as maichan has been trying to keep in contact about that release.

I finally received my Vault and Slan City this week which finishes up my #1 variant hunt. The second printing should be in my DCBS order this month. All just in time to start the hunt for #6 variants.

By my math, anybody that ordered every single comic I did a group buy for should have saved themselves a minimum of $107.24 minus whatever it cost me to ship to you (a flat rate medium box is just over $7, so I'm calling it an even $100 savings). I also saved at least $100 on the ones for myself by bundling everything together with everybody else's comics, so I think we all came out winners on this. I know it took a bit longer by ordering through me (rather than you getting each one individually and directly from the sellers), but hopefully I saved you enough cash to make the extra little wait worthwhile.

Kyle, I can only imagine the amount of time and energy you put into communicating, paying, tracking, packaging, and going to the post office to deliver all these orders. While you saved a little bit of money (and us collectively, a LOT of money), I’d say you weren’t paid a fair wage. But you didn’t do it for the money really. You did it for our community. That amazingly generous of you and I, and I’m sure a bunch of us, appreciate you. Thanks, man. Peace, maka

Indeed, I always offer thanks heh. I think my copy from Vault is finally going to be shipped this week, and then I've only got the IncredibleCon variant to wait on.

I completely agree with Maka. You have my deep thanks for organising the #1 buying group. That was already incredible and then you went even above and beyond that by picking up books at SDCC. People like you make this board a special place.

The Dojo spirit runs deep in this one.

I would like to join in the gratitude and appreciation that has been expressed by others, and extend my thanks to you Kyle. Time & time again you have given of yourself to help others. You have not only saved us money, but have helped to make our collections that much more special.

I am grateful for all you have done for us.




My wife however would tend to disagree. (True, but I'm joking. She thinks we're all crazy... haha) :lol:
