Likewise, but as I live in the UK I know I will have to wait for my packs to arrive. I don't realistically expect my packs to arrive on Thursday and with this coming weekend being Easter both Friday and Monday are Public Holidays, so no postal deliveries on those days. I hope mine will turn up some time next week. Should be worth the wait though Big Grin

Never fear folks
all packs are going in the mail on the official release date 5th of April but if it helps, the fact Marty and Boo's cards are run by Marty in the USA and Boo in the UK means i totally understand how agonising the wait is for things to come in the mail
I freak out when it's a bank holiday because i order my comic books online and they take longer to get to me haha

I'm having a problem getting to your review. This message keeps coming up:

"The page isn't redirecting properly

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

Any thoughts ?

Your site is definitely back again Thumb Up

My sets have yet to arrive but by the sound of things it looks like Boo and Marty have taken a leaf out of Jack Redd's book with regard to packing. All of his ReddLife sets have shipped in small, thin envelopes like those you describe. It's an idea that will certainly work with sets like this where each pack only contains a handful of card but not so good for larger sets.

You've pulled some nice sketches. Any chance you can post them all up in the Box Break section fo rall to see, excluding any that breach the family friendly rules around here of course.

Hello, great to see a review already

The Festive Edition was packed differently to the Main serise so we could see which people prefferd as these were our first two sets.

The Festive sets had the cards put togeather in a slim plastic sleeve with Cover Cards so you couldnt see the sketchcard you got, the Cover Cards had the name/details of which set it was, then this was put into a TopLoader, and that was slealed in a resealable plastic packet and a sticky label to create a thick bundle for every pack.

when we came to the larger main serise i wonderd if we had used too much plastic so we tried the cute Red Envelopes and stickers as a more ecological option which also allowed the price to be cheaper per pack.

We really wanted to see which form of packing customers prefferd as many who purchased this serise will also have gotten the Festive Edition Smile

so that was interesting reading folks

Well my 10 Packs arrived today - got a 10 card base set out of the packs and 10 sketches. Very nice sketches but only 4 featured Alice which I found disappointing as that was the main reason for me buying the cards - She features on 9 of the 10 base cards. All the sketches are good sketches but not of what I was hoping for!

hi Hammer, glad to hear you got your sets in the UK, packs were packed randomly and artists drew all the different Nevermore Alice characters as featured on the website, some folks have got a bunch of alices and others have got lots of the other characters so theres a good mix out there, so if you were personally wanting more Alice cards, i'm sure there are other folks who would trade with you Smile

Got my packs today Dance .Kudos to Marty and Boo for getting them to the UK so quickly and more importantly without attracting the attention of customs Big Grin .

Would you be able to post a list of the artists who worked on the set and how many sketches each one did?

Nice to hear people in the UK are receiving their packs. Mine have yet to show up but I'm sure they will be arriving sometime in the next few days, provided they also managed to slip under the Customs and Excise radar. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else has pulled.

I'd also be interested in seeing a list of how many sketches each artist produced. webjon included a partial breakdown on his blog review but the complete list would useful too.

There is a list of artists posted at Nevermorealice.com, (which was reprinted on webjon.com with my pulls), but I haven't seen a list of artist numbers anywhere -- I'd love to see that too.

Hi guys, i carnt wait to see which cards everyone got and that they are starting to hit the UK. One thing no one can ever control is how long packs take to travel internationally.

As Webjon said there is a full artist list on the website and i'm about to post contact details for Official NA Artists and their Commission prices for Nevermore Alice Artist Edition Cards but we are saving the full card count and other details for the Nevermore Alice Collectors guide which is in production.

Thanks for the info Boo Thumb Up .I will definitely be buying the guidebook just to find out more of the story.

Really feel I got lucky to pull a Patrick Finch and a Rusty Gilligan when they only did five each.
