  1. Just a quick update folks. I realized that I had spoken too soon about the stretch goals and the people who bought the digital ONLY copy would be left out. THIS IS NOT TRUE! If you purchase the digital only copy of “The Steamworld Chronicles #1” and we meet our stretch goals, you WILL get the followup issues as digital downloads, just like you pledged for. I apologize for the mix-up.

    Great show as usual John, Thanks again!
