    Hey I just got mine and typically -unless I am being stupid- I don't think my UV torch is working. :(

    He who hesitates is lost. I was going to sort it out at the weekend. Bugger!

    So have you started on the second print run yet sir?
  2.  (10010.24)
    Damn it! Staying subscribed and checking the site in hopes of news of a second run at some point in the future.

    But, on the Un-Damnit side of things, very happy for all involved that the project has been such a success!

    @cjstevens Same here, arrived this morning and the torch is borked. Either that or I'm too retarded to operate a device which only has one button.

    I haven't received mine yet, but maybe you have to pull a tab out of somewhere to make it work right? (Sometimes they put tabs in to stop the battery from being used up in transit.)

    I wish I'd bought more than one now. For the shop.

    Yeah, I was gonna wait too but I knew this was a limited edition , experimental comic written by a popular comic writer, so I said fuck it and charged it on my card. Glad I did now.

    I have to press the button on the torch really hard to get it to come on, and it's tricky keeping it held down as I scan around the page, but I'll get used to it.

    Thought this to be a nice piece of subtle advert

    Yeah thanks Warren, I saw the address on their homepage just after I posted and got a super-fast polite response from the guys. A new SVK 'object' was dispatched instantly to arrive in 1-2 days. I have no complaints at all, shit happens.

    I'm guessing that the battery inside the torch was D.O.A -probably pressed in transit, and from what I can see there is no way to replace it when it eventually runs out which is a bit sad (again I'm not bitching, I understand the cost of producing a torch with replaceable batts would have been unfeasible -but it is such a cool looking gadget).

    Additionally, on a positive note the book itself is fucking stunning. Design, format, layout, colour, art. It really is a beautiful thing. Obviously I'm waiting until my torch arrives to read it and only flicked through briefly, but I think it is safe to say D'Israeli was on fire when he put pen to paper with this one.

    Congrats on the success of the project BTW!

    Another non functioning torch here, I'm afraid. But considering how cool the packaging is, having to wait a few days for a replacement just adds to the anticipation!

    Got mine today and the torch worked nicely (I like the way it even works on the cover). The amount of thought and effort that has gone into the design (including the stickers on the packaging) is all very impressive. Now I need to actually find time to read it, twice.

    It would be interesting to see what buyer demographic is. I'd expect a large chunk of people who bought it are gadget-loving designers as opposed to hardcore comic fans (although most of my designer friends all know Warren's work on some level).

    mine is here and the torch works, i am yet to actually open the book because... well ... im excited
    • CommentTimeJul 11th 2011
    ordered mine, but canada post's got a massive backlog due to their strike (privatize the fuckers i say. all they do is bitch & strike, like the TTC transit workers), so there's delays. plus i'm heading out of the country til the end of the month, so, i'm hoping my fiancée doesn't read it before me ;)
