#1044: I Could Have Got MoreAugust 3, 2015
Notes from the Manager
If any you can figure out the movie reference in the title, you get a gold star. And if you get that, I'm sorry.
There will be FIVE strips this week! It will be
either two regular updates and three Michael Bay movie review strips or three regular updates and two movie review strips. I don't know yet! (I figured it out.)
The Multiplex: The Revenge Kickstarter Project has ended successfully, thanks to 442 backers! Quite honestly, about a week ago, I was on the verge of cancelling it, because it seemed impossible to make up the difference in so little time. Thank you so, so much to everyone who pledged or shared the project with anyone. I could not have done it without you.
I've talked a bit about the next steps for the Kickstarter project over in the project updates, so I won't rehash that here. But I will have some news in the very near future about how people who couldn't pledge to the Kickstarter can still help support the book series and pre-order a copy of Book Three!
While Book Three is totally covered at this point, having some additional funds raised will help me pay for a second printing of Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show and allow me to continue working on Book Four when I'm finished fulfilling Book Three. So the funds will get put to good use!

Now that the Kickstarter project has ended and Multiplex: The Revenge is funded (yay!), I can open up the floor for pre-orders to non-backers via BackerKit. I’m using BackerKit instead of handling things through the Multiplex store (as I did with Book Two), because merging everything and keeping track of essentially two separate crowdfunding projects proved to be a huge headache; BackerKit streamlines that process for me tremendously.
NOT all of the Kickstarter rewards are available, and some are slightly different: i.e. you don’t get your name on the Acknowledgments page of the book, and while you can get vector portraits, I can’t promise that you’ll make it into the third book. (There is only so much room!) Some of the higher level rewards (like original comic strips) are not available, either — although if you have your heart set on one of those, just shoot me an e-mail, and we can probably figure something out.
The current stretch goal is to fund a second printing of Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show (Book One), a necessary step before I can doing a fourth printed book. The amount needed is $7500, with roughly $1,238.97 of Kickstarter’s surplus (the amount over the $24,000 funding goal) applicable toward that. Once this goal is reached, I’ll add Book One as a reward goal for ANY Kickstarter or BackerKit backers (“preorder backer,” as they call them).
I’ll put up a few more visible graphics on the site later — there’s no urgency at this time, so I won’t be bugging you guys about it often. These BackerKit pre-orders will be open for several months and only “lock” in the summer shortly before Book Three goes to press.
