Now that we have the first issue fully assembled with a definitive page count (178 pages!) we can finally give you the exact shipping charges. Below is a table with shipping costs listed by country/region. The first section is the cost to ship one individual issue. The second list is for multiple copies that ship together (e.g. the Retail Package). And finally there are lifetime shipping options available for Founding Patrons.
So how does this work? We want to provide as many options as possible. You can wait and be billed for shipping (via Paypal or our website) when each issue is ready to mail (for issue 1 this will be early July). Or you can pay for shipping now by increasing the dollar amount of your pledge to cover the appropriate amount.
For those who have subscription packages, again you can choose to be billed separately for each issue when it's ready, or you can pay up front by increasing your pledge amount. You can split it up by prepaying for some issues and waiting to be billed for the later issues.
For Founding Patrons with lifetime subscriptions, you can also choose to be billed as each issue comes out. Or, as part of this Kickstarter, you can choose a Lifetime Shipping package ($25 in the US and Europe; $30 everywhere else) by increasing your pledge level appropriately.
IMPORTANT - The advantage to pre-paying for shipping as part of the Kickstarter is that it will count towards unlocking the next Stretch Goal! So keep that in mind.
