Dear, angry mob from Gocomics

NOTE: I gave it some tought and I won't be stopping the strip at Gocomics. I'm dealing with the problem and the books will be shipped. PERIOD. I have a no refund policy which makes it MY responsability that YOU get your book one way or the other. That means that you WILL get it. I was granted moderator privileges at my strip and I'll be supervising the comments from now on. Readers don't have to suffer from other people's behavior. I have an email Should you have any comments you may write to me personally and if your comment is about your book order, you already read what's happening so you'll have to wait until it arrives.

I recently read the written chaos at Gocomics regarding the long wait for the Yenny books.

When I originally started the Art book project, I was counting on a printing shop, that was going to print the necessary books as I ordered them. Unfortunately the print shop I chose had closed their shop before pre-orders of the book ended.

This left me having to look high and low for another printing shop that would finish the job. Complications of the search were from companies needing at LEAST 2,000 copies to be printed, but the amount of pre-sold Yenny books was less than 10 percent of that.

I've chosen a new print shop that would print the necessary copies, but they are charging a lot more to print. The higher amount charged for printing literally leaves me with little to no compensation for all of the time and effort I put on this book. Despite this, I'm still obligated to my promise and I'm still in the process of delivering books. I currently have a new batch and they will be shipped this week.
I have orders from China and Russia which paid US postage. Postage that I have to pay extra because of this mistake.
The first book batch was picked up by hand at Puerto Rico Comic Con.

Unfortunately, due to all these setbacks, Another printed "Yenny book" in the future would be very unlikely.
I will only have PDF downloads from now on.

Judging by Yenny's popularity, many people might think that I own a gigantic company but the truth is that this is a one man show.

Once again thanks for your patience.

  1. Es una pena, los comics impresos se sienten más especiales al poder sostener tales piezas de arte en tus manos. Pero bueno por lo menos aún podemos seguir disfrutando de yenny en PDF. Ojalá en algún momento se den las circunstancias para que vuelvas a imprimir tus revistas.
