Related Strips: #404: Too Much Information
Don't forget! For every $500 we raise through Kickstarter past $4500 before Monday, one lucky winner will have their Facebook/Twitter/whatever avatar drawn for them by yours truly in the Multiplex style. (And once I've drawn you, it's pretty much a given that you'll appear in the regular strip at some point.) There's guaranteed to be one winner already,
and we're just shy of a second one — which means double the chance to win for everybody! UPDATE 8:56 am: Woot! We just jumped past the $5500 mark and the 3/4 mark thanks in part to one very generous pledge. (Really, everybody who has pledged to date is responsible, so thank you all again.)
We're in the home stretch now, so to help get us to the $7500 level and beyond, I've lowered the $400 pledge level to a BARGAIN at $300 (I can do that since there haven't been any takers yet), which includes all of the lower level rewards — the thank you, the eBooks, the print book, the exclusive T-shirt, the character sketch, the cameo appearance and avatar graphics — plus an all-new hand-drawn, single-page comic of anything you want (except porn).
AND. The second webcomicker to get in on the Kickstarter Action is Templar, Arizona's Spike, whom I believe first heard about the fundraising site from yours truly, at the Windy City Comicon. She's got a project called Poorcraft that sounds like a book I wish I'd had ten years ago: a non-fiction volume (mostly but not entirely comics, which will be drawn by Diana Nock) about learning to be poor in order to do what you really want to do with your life.
Check out the Poorcraft Kickstarter pitch and back it, too, if you're so inclined. (And yes, I already made my pledge. I'm no hypocrite.)
Speaking of Kickstarter, I'll be joining the Fanboy Radio crew for another installment of "The Indie Show" this Sunday at 6pm CST. The episode looks like it will be mainly about the various comics projects on Kickstarter, as the rest of the episode will be taken up by Kickstarter co-founder Yancy Strickler and cartoonist Jamie Tanner (The Aviary), who has successfully funded his second graphic novel through Kickstarter.
How much Multiplex can you handle?!
In addition to the warm, soothing feeling of being a patron of the fine art of comic strippery, Patrons get access to free Multiplex eBooks, sneak previews of upcoming comics and other behind the scenes peeks, sketch giveaways, and more!

It’s only been a couple of months since I said goodbye to Punk and today my fiancée Karyn and I had to say goodbye to her cat Sydney. Like Punk, she was eighteen years old and had multiple long-term health issues.
I only knew her for the last eight of her years, and although we had a contentious start, and she never got along with Punk, we grew to have a special bond. In the last few months, she would sit on me as I slept and be the first thing I saw almost every morning. She was a very sweet, ridiculously affectionate cat, and we will both miss her.
Multiplex is taking a very short break. I’ll see you here Monday.
