Welcome to the Official KLC Press F.A.Q.(frequently asked questions)!! This is THE spot where you’ll find all the most up to date information and details on all things relating to the ⛓⛓CHAINS⛓⛓. Consider this a living document, we’ll continue to update with new info and answers to questions that pop up on a regular basis. On to the good stuff…
Q: Will I be able to buy physical copies of Vanish, Flood and The One You Feed?
A: This is the NUMBER ONE ITEM we’ve been asked since launching the newsletter. So for the record… ALL KLC PRESS BOOKS WILL BE IN PRINT!!! And… ALL KLC PRESS BOOKS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT YOUR LOCAL COMIC SHOP!!! Yes, this is a digital platform, yes we’re offering paid subscribers digital copies of our books. But WE LOVE PRINT!!! You’re getting an inside look at us making these books as well as the ability to read them before anyone else… but ultimately KLC Press is expanding our reach, NOT abandoning collectors and retailers!
Q: KLC Press? What the hell is that?!
A: DONNY CATES and RYAN STEGMAN, along with JOHN J. HILL (and Griffin and Ethan behind the camera!), make up the powerhouse team behind KLC Press! This is their playground for developing creator owned comic books and products... unshackled from the confines of big industry comics.
Q: What’s the deal with these subscription tiers?
A: Head over to this older post, KLC PRESS TIER INFO, where we map all of that out for you.
Q: Did I make it into the first 500 / first 1000 subscribers to get the special founding member exclusives?
A: YES, Bonus books for first 500 / first 1000 Annual and GOAT Annual tiers are still available! if you’ve already subscribed in one of those two tiers, you’re in!! The offer will be ending in the near future, so if you’re on the fence you may want to pull the trigger (or not, and be sad forever). We’ll announce the end of the promotion in an upcoming newsletter and also note the cut off date in this FAQ on the website.
Q: When will we get all these great books?
A: We’re working on them now, so they don’t actually exist yet (that’s why we’re doing this… so you can SEE IT ALL COME TO LIFE!). Once they’ve been completed they go through solicitations, ordering, printing, shipping to the main warehouse, and then finally we’ll have all the physical perks in hand and can start fulfillment. It’s a LONG process making comics, which is part of the fun of what we’re doing here. You fantastic fans that have paid to be a part of the community will get digital copies of books before anyone else. Before comic stores, before other digital platforms. Once things are done, you’ll be able to read them! UPDATE: We’re currently working on print scheduling, solicitations, etc. There’s movement. And rest assured paid subscribers, you’ll be getting your copies when they’re available, regardless of when that is.
Q: I don’t live in the U.S., do you offer international shipping?
A: YES!!! We’ll ship internationally. If you’ve subscribed and will be getting any physical perks, you’ll get them sent to you regardless of where you live. If anything does change, current subscribers will not have to pay anything additional, it will only be for subscriptions AFTER the date we announce a change.
Q: I paid for annual but want to upgrade to GOAT… can I do this?
A: YES!!! Head to THIS SUBSTACK SUPPORT PAGE on that topic.
Q: What is VANISH?
A: Watch the first episode of Ryan & Donny’s Half-Assed Substack Podcast to get the scoop (plus we delve deeper throughout the Substack!). If you don’t feel like dealing with video, it’s all transcribed too. We aim to please.
Q: What is FLOOD?
A: Check out the following post, featuring a conversation with FLOOD creators Megan Hutchison-Cates and Donny Cates!
Q: What is THE ONE YOU FEED?
A: We’ll have a lot to reveal about the epic new series soon! For now, you can read the entire first issue (in 3 chapters) by the team of Donny Cates, Dylan Burnett, Dean White, and John J. Hill!
Q: I’ve got a free subscription, and your newsletter is SO FREAKIN’ GOOD that I absolutely have to get in on that GOAT GOODNESS!! How do I do the paid subscription and receive all those awesome comic perks?
A: Now that’s an easy one… just SMASH THAT BUTTON!
That should cover it! We’ll continue to update the web version of this post with additional info and clarification as needed.
Kids Love Chains. And we love you.
