#1042: You’re in Good Hands

Kurt and Franklin are, of course, referring to events from waaaay back in Chapter 15 in the final panels here — events that will be expanded upon slightly in any collected editions of the story that might be in the works…

Speaking of which. There are just 69 hours left the Multiplex: The Revenge PBS telethon I mean Kickstarter project… The funding period ends on Friday at 9PM Central!

Since Monday, the Kickstarter project has really rallied, and we’re $3,520 away from the goal! That’s within arm’s reach. In fact, that's roughly how much we’ve raised in the last 48 hours. But it could still go either way: a huge amount of the pledged funds in the last two days has been due to existing backers increasing their pledges, which is awesome of them — but it is not sustainable growth, either. If you haven’t already, please consider backing the project!

In case you missed any of this: in the last few days, I’ve added your choice of pencils or inks from hand-drawn comics to many of the higher level reward packs… I’ve released the first chapter from Multiplex: The Revenge (Book Three) for FREE to give everyone a taste of what the books will be like… and I've added new milestone goals in which I'll make new Multiplex movie review comics featuring Jason's reviews of the finest films from Michael Bay’s oeuvre — the first of which we've already met! That means Jason will be reviewing The Rock in the near future. Unlocked and posted!

If we reach $22,000 by TONIGHT/WEDNESDAY (July 29) at midnight, I will watch Bad Boys I and II (and create a review comic for each of them) — and we're already just about 1/4 of the way there! Unlocked, and the first one is posted!

If we reach $24,000 by THURSDAY (July 30) at midnight, I will watch all four Bayformers movies and do a movie review strip for each movie! Or maybe one four-page movie review. It'll be four pages, anyway. (I’ve seen 1–3 before, but I will rewatch them, because I am an ethical movie reviewer. Even when I'm writing fictional movie reviews.) Unlocked!

See you Friday!

Multiplex 10: Hyrule Isn’t Going to Save Itself

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

If you’ve seen the rough animatic of the first scene from the animated short (which I posted both on Patreon and in the Kickstarter updates), you know that the episode begins before Jason has started working at the Multiplex 10.

So here’s one difference between the Multiplex 10 “universe” and Multiplex (comic strip) canon; Franklin started at the theater before Jason does. Also, the movie poster frames aren’t red anymore, because their vests are red, that was a really stupid decision, and I should have changed it ten years ago.

I feel bad that Franklin only has a small cameo in the first episode, especially since I already know who I want to voice him (hi, Terrence). Sadly, a lot of things that factor big in the comic won’t turn up in the first eleven minute episode, because it focuses on Kurt and Jason. But hopefully we’ll get to make more.

And even if we can’t, I’ll still want to make some mini-webisode sort of things and maybe a digital comic (e.g. Comixology Submit style)… and, of course, there’s also a tabletop/card game in development. So, like I’ve said, I’m not done with these characters yet.
