So, LOOKIT...



You guys, it's more than a little embarassing to have outstanding orders for copies of LOOKIT w/sketches from a year ago, but it is a sad, shameful fact of my life. I have, however, just sent out a stack of them that I was sitting on a little longer than I should have, and have done a few more this week that will be going out soon. I'm nearing the end, here, and I see the light at the end of the tunnel, I just ask that you bear with me a little longer while I wrap this up. You guys have no idea how much I love you for being SO incredibly patient with me.

(above is an old spider-man I did in a copy of LOOKIT for a guy that has been posted elsewhere online, so I'm posting it here as well, so that this post isn't without a picture for you dudes to look at)

If any of you want to double-check with me that yours just hasn't been done yet as opposed to being lost in the mail, just leave me a comment here, and I'll verify.

Thanks again, everyone.

I missed out on ordering Lookit, but is there a NEW sketchbook in the works?

Also, is Invincible 85 still hitting stores today? Enquiring minds want to know! (Well, my enquiring mind.)

Tom said...

I love you, Cory. I also love you, Jesse Hamm.

Lorenzo Garcia jr said...

No worries here, it's worth the wait.
I'll take you up on that status check.

Marcel said...

I'll second a status check!

(full name's Marcel O'Leary. Cheers!)

JESSE!!!! Did I tell you that I love your new blog? You're awesome. Sorry I didn't reply to the last comment you left. Thank you very much. You're FAR too kind, though.

Anyway, no, Invincible #85 isn't out today, the book is a bit behind schedule and #82, I think, was the last issue to come out. Sorry. I AM there to help so that everything can get back on track, though.

There IS a new sketchbook in the works. It will be made up of all the sketches I have done in the backs of LOOKIT, so as soon as I wrap this stuff up, I'll be able to get serious about putting it together and getting it out there. I'll keep you posted. :)

Tom- Thanks. :))

Lorenzo- Yours is in the batch sitting on my desk waiting to be done. Almost there!

Marcel- Yours is done. It would have gone out earlier in the week, but I was out of customs forms. Sorry! Should go out before the end of the week.

Thanks again, guys!

I got 'em today and I absolutely love 'em! I can hardly wait for the next sketchbook to see all the other awesome drawings! - constant

Andrew Jennings said...

No worries Cory, seems like everyone is strapped for time these days. We're all so busy making art!

Can I get a verification on my order?

cory j walker said...

Phew! Glad to hear it guys! :)

Andrew, yours is the next one in line! Lucky!

Craig Zablo said...

Not concerned about the wait. I know it will be worth the wait once it arrives. Heck, I hope you offer the same deal for your next sketchbook.

Michael Tyler said...

Checking on mine too, Michael Tyler (sketch of Captain America). The sketchbook is worth the wait man, hope all is well!

rmorgens said...

Checking the status of mine as well (Invisible characters). I actually ordered it for someone else but I started reading the comic and I want to keep it for myself. We'll see...

cory j walker said...

Thanks, Mr. Zablo. I'm sure I will do something similar next time around, though sketches may be a little more expensive than $10, since I tend to put time into them and that will also cut down on volume, so I hopefully won't have another massive list on my hands, taking a year to complete. I dunno. We'll see.

Michael- Yours was in the batch I sent out on the 17th. Not sure how long it takes to get to MD, but if you don't get it soon, let me know.

rmorgens- I have yet to get to yours, but it will be soon. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks!

Hi Cory,

Do you have any additional copies of Lookit that you'd be willing to sell without an original sketch? Or are they all spoken for?

Thanks,
Nick

Jesse Hamm said...

Thanks Cory!

Let us know when your new Invincible hits the shelves. My local shop doesn't order enough of your stuff, so it's always a "musical chairs" scramble for new issues.

Marcel said...

Cheers for the reply. I can't wait!

Neil said...

Has mine been sent? NO PROBLEM on the wait, it's just making it MORE EXCITING haha

Vincent said...

Hi Cory, I'm french. I command your sketchbook last year (september) with a sketch of Invincible... My name's Vincent MARIA.

Thanks ! ;)

dany winterbottom said...

jsos said...

Worth the wait for SURE. But just touching base to make sure "Justin Crisostomo" wasn't lost in the mail. Thanks! Can't wait for your new 'vince issues.

Lorenzo Garcia jr said...

Any update on the last of these lovelys shipping out, Cory?

Andy said...

Hey Corey, I'm Andrew Isaac from Melbourne Australia I'm still waiting for my Lookit! Sent or lost?

cory j walker said...

Andrew- It has not been sent yet, but is in the next stack to go out. I'm sorry.

Andy said...

That's cool, totally understand. I've just moved - what's the best way to send you my new address?

Sean Miller said...

Are there any copies still available? I want one so bad. I can't express how BUMMED I am that I'm late to the party. I wish I had known about this earlier.
