I thought it ended with the crowd rioting and rushing the stage so it's entirely possible they ripped Mr. Williams limb from limb.

I'll give him credit for not deleting all of Achewood + his online presence after failing to deliver a book like certain other artists

Onstad knows his product has value and people will keep coming back for the mere possibility of getting it, he's the Lauryn Hill of webcomics

I also thought the crowd likely tore Mr. Williams apart. I had not considered the implications of the foundership status.

I agree with you but also people aren't wrong to point out that this is like the third book project that's been announced, in some cases pre-ordered, and then fallen through in the last 10 years

people also aren't wrong to point out that in the previous cases there was minimal communication or outreach

A Home For Scared People was listed on Amazon for like two years with nary a peep, and it wasn't until some time after that that it was confirmed that the rest of the Dark Horse books had been cancelled

To be fair, covid has changed the demand for print books in a way that's really made it harder to have stuff published and ready. It also doesn't help that there's like two major printers in the US; it's a lot harder to have books in print right now than it used to be.

I feel like the cookbooks and collections and whatever else are just a microscopic drop in the sea compared to the content Onstad just leaves up on the internet for any dumbass like me to stumble upon. The guy made something that's been one of the most entertaining artistic expressions I've ever had the privilege to enjoy and just gives it away. I understand that these big commercial projects give him brain problems and he's liable to flake on them, but my reaction isn't resentment or wondering where my drat cookbook is, but instead I just hope the guy isn't being too hard on himself and I hope he's ok. gently caress a cookbook, gently caress a hardcover compendium, I'm just glad I can reread Achewood.

The Complete Canon isn't a little self-published thing, it's being put out by Oni Press which is itself under the umbrella of Simon & Schuster, the third largest publisher in the United States. If Simon & Schuster wanted to make money it has better methods at its disposal than grifting nerds with a cat webcomic. If it's late it's late and I am fairly confident there are reasons much more mundane than the devious machinations of webcomic cookbook bandits.

Edit: as a probably not very analogous example, that does I think point to how disruptive the effect of COVID was on publishing-- I had a book that was supposed come out in April 2020. I had everything on my end done and out of my hands by the end of 2019. I did everything I was supposed to do. It was a decent press, hardworking editors, on top of things... you know. It came out in December. That's just how it is sometimes, especially this past year or so. I've seen countless anthologies and journals and stuff get pushed back too and it has almost never been the fault of any one person in particular. It's just been a weird and kind of crazy time.

I preordered and I care, but in the good way about my fellow human being in this global potentially deadly unknown long-term-effect pandemic dealing with the situation that is his life, instead of the mad "where is my product I will destroy you over $30 or whatever it will someday cost me to have clicked the amazon button for a pure luxury which I can still totally cancel at no cost" capitalist way.

E: I guess maybe if you ordered in a more ethical way to begin with it might be harder to return and that's a reasonable concern, that's valid but also still lmao if you knew about the cookbook and preordered, and still feel justified in any amount of frustration even ignoring covid.
