You guys are amazing. The Multiplex/Kickstarter project raised about $1000 since last Thursday — more than enough to be successfully funded on December 12th (the end date). And to think I was actually kind of anxious about getting to $7500 last week!

I love you guys. (That's a gender-neutral "guys," by the way.)

Okay. Anyway. I swear, I'll stop pushing the Kickstarter thing quite so hard for the near future, but please keep those pledges coming if you can, though!

Here's why: even the current $8000 from Kickstarter will leave me with nearly a $3000 shortfall, based on my projected total costs of $8650 (which of course is how much I need after Amazon Payments takes their transaction fees and the IRS gets its cut).

That $8650 estimate includes the book itself plus the exclusive T-shirts and shipping for all the incentives, but it doesn't include my living expenses for the two months I'll be taking off to finish the book.

Now, I don't expect to raise nearly the $12,000 break-even amount solely through Kickstarter. I'm not even going to hope for that much. I have money set aside, and if I'm still coming up short on cash, I can figure something out. (Hell, maybe I can apply for a Xeric award in the spring.) Worst case scenario: I dust off my credit card and carry a small balance until the books arrive from China and start selling. shrug

The important thing is, with the $7500 goal more than met — thanks to your pledgesthe book will happen next year, most likely early autumn, but possibly late summer. Obviously, I'll keep you posted at every step of the way on the Kickstarter Updates page.

So thank you, thank you, thank you so incredibly much to everyone who has pledged to date! Keep telling your friends to support the project, though — we've got 46 days left to keep raising money!

Chapter 15 collects strips #311–338 from the Multiplex archives, plus three bonus comics not found in the archives — including “The Abyss Gazes Also,” an all-new twelve-page mini-epic. Chapter 15 costs $2.99.

Since Chapter 15 is done, you can also get all five Chapter eBooks for Book Three — Chapters 11–15 for $7.95. If you get the five eBook set, you’ll also get a PDF of the six-page “The Story So Far” sequence from the beginning of the upcoming print book (about one page of which is new art).

And remember — Chapter 11 is free!

 

Oh… Stealth announcement: the Multiplex Store is no more. If you need access to your digital files that you bought through that, just shoot me an e-mail. I will have something different set up by the time Book Three is available.
