Back in Germany

After an exciting, eventful and exhausting vacation in Japan I’m now back in Germany. Unfortunately, I immediately caught a cold since it was awfully cold in the airplane on the way back home.

Updates will be irregular in the next weeks since I also have to work on the fulfillment of the Kickstarter campaign regarding the books for our American backers.


Only one update next week

There will be only one update next week. I did not have time to think about new strip ideas in the last weeks and I’ve now completely run out of material. Things will return to normal after my return from my Japan trip in mid-April.


Posting from Japan

As you may know I’ve been on a vacation in Japan for 5 days now and will stay here until 12 April. I will write new Sandra and Woo strips and Gaia pages whenever I find time. Until my return, Powree will create the image files for the website. So please be prepared for minor errors in styling and lettering until I’m back again.


Books for international customers will be shipped soon!

International version

If you’ve followed my Kickstarter diary, you’ll have noticed that I’ve been working tirelessly during the last weeks to make the international versions of the Sandra and Woo books ready for shipment before my Japan trip from 17 March to 13 April.

Today, all books for customers outside the United States have been picked up by UPS that will deliver them to my distribution partner Aimplify which is located in Sondershausen, Thüringen, Germany.

Aimplify will carry out an additional address check to avoid any delivery issues. You will soon receive an email from <no-reply@crowdpilot.com> with the subject “Sandra and Woo – shipping starts soon”. Don’t forget to check your SPAM folder in the following days.

This email from Aimplify will contain detailed information about the shipping, how to change your address if necessary or how to put the shipment on hold if you’re not at home. If you still have any questions about your shipment after reading their email, please drop Aimplify a line at support@crowdpilot.com and put “Sandra and Woo” into the subject.

U.S. version

I will work on the books for our U.S. customers after my Japan trip. I have instructed our U.S. printer Ka-Blam to send me the covers in a way so that they arrive here in Germany a short time after my return from my vacation. Once I’ve received them, I will add my signature to all covers and the stencil to all covers used for Special Editions. I will then send the covers back to Ka-Blam who will then print the interior pages and send the finished books to all U.S. customers.


Do you want a copy of the Sandra and Woo anthology or art book?

I’m currently working like a maniac to be able to send the international versions of the two Sandra and Woo books to all non-U.S. customers before my Japan trip from 17 March 2019 to 13 April 2019.

See the Kickstarter campaign for all the info about the books!

I printed more books than needed. Around 5 copies of the Sandra and Woo: 10 Years anthology and 12 copies of the art book The Art of Sandra and Woo (Art book sold out!) are still available. All of them have the “Freedom! Justice! Cookies” line and my signature. Some of them also have a stencil on the inside of the cover that turned out sub-optimal with smudges, a couple bad outlines, etc. This is your chance to get such hand-made (B-stock) books with at a discount:

  • Art book + PDFs: €20
  • Anthology + PDFs: €30
  • Anthology + Art book + PDFs: €45

Shipping (for one or two books):

  • Germany: €5
  • Europe: €10
  • World: €15
  • Shipping to the United States is not available for these books!

If you want a copy, please write an email to novil@gmx.de with your address details. I will then write a reply and ask you to send me the money to my PayPal account.

I currently plan to send all books to the shipping company Aimplify next Saturday. Aimplify will then ship the books to all customers. So you won’t have to wait long before getting your book!
