    Very Nice!! Now can we get a signed copy of issue #1 as part of a higher level pledge tier. Seems like there hasn’t been any new “incentives” lately to warrant upgrading levels.

    Looking really good. Is there any way to buy a digital copy apart from IndyPlanet? They only sell printed copies to germany, no digital.
