I haven't received mine either, but as it'll have to cross the Atlantic, amidst the Christmas post, I'm not surprised at that. I do have the volume 7 PDF, so I have the option to discuss the content. I'll try to spoiler-hide stuff where appropriate.

The most obvious thing to note is that everyone who'd been missing the nipples in Ma3 probably needs to buy this, because the inter-chapter pages and the bonus story feature Giz cheerfully and extensively returning to the theme of unobscured mammaries. Well, partially obscured in some cases, but you know what I mean. The second thing to note is the updated cast page, which renders the one on the Web site even more out of date. It's not been radically updated, though. Gary's orientation became "Straight, Overwhelmed" in volume 6, though this is the volume which perhaps confirms beyond any doubt that this is now the Gary Joke; he's gone from virginity, through confusion, to a situation where he's getting a lot of sex, some of it quite exotic, but to be honest, probably not enjoying most of it very much.

Which brings us, very definitely, to the bonus story...


...Which provides partial justification for Peggy's unlikely costume choice on the book's cover, and in which Gary's direct experiences expand faster than Ruby's horizons in SDB (with one of his previous nightmares coming true), and even Peggy learns a new thing or two. I suppose that after this, some people will be proclaiming that Gary is bi. One would certainly have to say that he's now had a homosexual experience or two (yes, their balls must have touched, among other things), and even enjoyed one bit of it (heart icon).

And in the end, the good news for Gary is that he may be getting weekly booty calls from an attractive woman. The bad news for him is, it's his booty getting called.

(One also has to wonder where they meet. Will Peggy realise that Gary's home base is also Zii's address? And will Gary eventually twig that a sexy nurse named Peggy with that hairstyle may just possibly be the same as the attractive nurse named Peggy who he and Zii met at the hospital a little while ago?)

And I did love Peggy's dialogue when talking with her mouth full ("Liffen miffter backfeat blowjoffb!"), and also her instinctive idea of roleplaying with someone else playing a naughty nurse. ("You mixed up three patients' charts!")

Just out of curiosity, have people received their print copies yet? In particular, have any made it to the UK?

I haven't received anything rewards-wise (no pdf links, nada) yet. I did PM Giz about it last week and she said they were shipping out. So, soon (tm)?

Uh-huh, thanks. I have had the PDF version of volume 7, so you might want to ask about that if it's part of the package you chose.

No other PDFs, though. No rush, but I admit that there are one or two of those that I'm looking forward to.

Aaaand I've just received my Cool Cat Studios and Penny & Aggie PDFs. Well, I'm downloading them right now.

So it's just the print book and the bonus/guest artist PDF items to come here...

I don't recall if the guest artist stuff was going to be run as comics, published as PDFs, or what. Anyhow, we'll foubtless find out eventually.

It was my understanding they will run as continuations of the comics on their sites first.

Checking the Kickstarter page - some of the new stories will specifically be released as PDFs (free to all backers), some it's less clear.

Less notifications this year due to the system we're using. We still have about 100 or so orders to ship out due to various factors... like, getting all P&A books printed took longer than expected, so if you had that as an add-on, we're just shipping those now. The plushy, we're getting in 2 weeks, so if you had that, it'll ship in 2 weeks. Stuff like that. You can message me in Kickstarter and I can look up your name if you really want to know if it's been shipped and when. If you're in Australia, those take a long time. We've seen 12 weeks for it to get there, so if let's say it was shipped late December... it still wouldn't be there till March.

Latest update.
The Ma3 Kickstarter bonus story featuring the gender reversed cast: I'll get to that once I'm done sending out all physical rewards. So March/April at this point.
