Notes from the Manager
So you guys must really want those Mutliplex: Chapter 1 comics (and/or the print collection), because the Multiplex Kickstarter project is over $500 over the goal I'd set for tonight at midnight (and counting)!
It's not to late to get in on the action, though: if you pledge ANY amount today (Wednesday — and I'm going by Central Time), you'll be eligible to win one of five copies of the Chapter 1 print comic. (Note that these aren't yet printed, so they won't get shipped out for a while. They will eventually be available in the Multiplex Store, as well.)
Keep those pledges coming! I'll cook up another special reward/incentive random drawing soon, and (if you don't win now) you will be eligible for the next drawing!
Please don't feel like I'm asking for donations, here! I'm trying to make this more than worth your pledge: with bonus strips, the free copy of the Chapter 1 HD edition (and Chapter 2, when it's out) and $2 off any of the T-shirts in the Multiplex Store. The book will almost definitely have a cover price of $25 (judging from the quotes I'm getting back from printers so far), and you're getting free shipping anywhere in the US or Canada, too. With such ridiculously low interest rates these days, that's a bigger return on your investment than any bank is offering now, believe me!
There is one more update left this week! See you on Friday!

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.
