Ad: Books in Australia

October 1, 2017 by Tim

Still have some books left in Australia. And best of all, it will ship right away! Lock in your order today, as this will be the last opportunity to own this set at these shipping prices. Once these are gone, that’s it.

Each book set features three hardcover volumes in a foil-stamped slipcase, and includes everything from the first decade of Ctrl+Alt+Del (roughly 2500 comic strips!), plus the extended ending to the original Ethan and Lucas saga.

If you live in Australia, click the button below to lock in your order for a book set. Book + Shipping = $100.

If you live in New Zealand, click the button below to lock in your order for a book set. Book + Shipping = $120.

If you live in the US or Canada, you can grab one of the remaining copies of the book from our store.

It has been a while since I’ve been here…

TBH, I’m just happy to be here.

Are you going to eventually release a short version of the console wars for sale?

I always wondered why you ended your original story line, I liked the ridiculousness of Ethan and Lucas every week.

I’m cool with the end of the original, but I do wish Space Archeologist had been finished. Oh well.

True.
It was like one or two issues from completion, then it failed.
Speaking of which Starcaster is a few from reaching a potential natural end…

Well, he’s been doing that story for a very long time, and as Q once told Picard “All good things must come to an end.”.

I am sure we’ll have to many more future stories to enjoy from him.

Australia:
Where semi-aquatic egg laying mammals (with a tail!) self induced helicopter parenting marsupials, Ihocane powder, 2nd best boxing species, opera houses, and sweet book deals await!

in what world is that relevant?

The exorbitant part of the price tag based off of shipping right?
Free shipping and Amazon prime would make the costs plummet.
Though I doubt it is important, it is relevant.

I bought these during the kickstarter. You will NOT be disappointed! They are absolutely wonderful! Get them if you can!

A beautiful set of books that puts to shame many compilations by better known individuals.

Something to treasure.

Does anyone know if this is charged straight away or when it’s shipped to us? As I really want it, but don’t have the coin right now 🙁

My order is in. 🙂 I was sorry that the original series had to come to an end and sorry that it had to end that way, but it’s good that Ethan got his BDH moment. (If you can’t figure out the acronym, the first word is Big and the last word is Hero. You can figure out the middle word for yourself) 🙂

You will be pleased with the resolution provided by the book set. It was fully appropriate for Tim to leave it as a somewhat cliffhanger, but it’s nice to have the closure that hitting the final stretch goal provided.

Had mine for over a year now I think. Got it with the original Kickstarter. It lives proudly on my desk was to be admired whilst drinking from my Lucas mug…until someone broke said mug. I killed them and disposed of their body

This whole Australian shipping thing confuses me. Are there no printing companies in Australia that could print and distribute from there?

Hmm…so theoretically speaking could start a printing company with printers in the US, EU, and Australia. Then when you place your order they allow you to break up your order into different continents while still giving you the bulk price. At the point the only difference would be taxes. Of course then you’d need to distribute from there. I assume you normally have the books shipped to you so you can see the quality like you did with the Legendary Showdown Gamers Quest rewards. With a structure like this that prices would be forfeit on those international orders so it… Read more »

Publishers in Australia don’t necessarily print the books locally, if the original book is published in the USA, then the local distributor will import the book from overseas.

Local print runs are incredibly expensive due to simple numbers. Local authors are not as a rule, profitable for the publishers here due to that simple fact.

In regards to the real world example of an extra 1000 books costing a $1.78

When working in the book trade, I unpacked a pallet of large coffee table books with a retail around au$100, we paid about au$60 and the local distributor who imported them from the overseas publisher paid us$1.25 (I know this because their invoice was in one of the boxes I unpacked)

That provides enough margin to cover freight/importation costs and the fact that the publisher back in the USA was still making a profit even if that was to just cover initial setup.

Would any of these be available to ship to China? Because that’s where I live and work most of the year.

I have recently received my copy of the first 10 years (New Zealander living in Australia) and it is beautiful. I have been reading through from the start since receiving it and it is tasking me back to where i was when I found this comic and all the laughs I’ve had over the past 10+ years reading.

Hoping to have many more years of this comic ahead, and thanks again for all the effort put into making me (and all the other followers) smile.

I just ordered one of the volume set. But my address is slightly wrong.
Can you still change it?

Got mine when I was last home from work and it is absolutely gorgeous!!

The only comment I could make for improvement would be some kind of tabs to use for pulling them out of the case or perhaps slots on the end to push them out.

But otherwise fantastic and has a prominent place at home now 😀

Took a photo, then realised I had no real way to send it to you.

It was some empirical data ( aka proof ) that the box set is not in fact quite heavy enough to flatten a cat.

As long as Article 50 hasn’t been finalized (still a couple of years) the UK is still part of the EU so no need to mention them separately. Btw does that mean you don’t ship from Germany to anyone that is not in the EU (for example Switzerland and Lechtenstein) or did you mean Europe (which includes the UK too eventhough they like to pretend they don’t).

i was wondering which would be the cheapest option to have it sent to Singapore? i’ve been mulling over this since the kickstarter, and everytime a post comes up related to the boxed sets, i don’t have the dough to cough up for it! T_T

Hey (hoping someone still checks this…) how limited is the stock for the books? I see a warning about it being limited and how it won’t be reprinted but i am currently very strapped for cash and can’t afford
