Notes from the Manager
If you were scared by the long note on Monday, you may have missed the bit about me mentioning sort-of launch of the new Deleted Scenes blog here. Yesterday's update featured one of the custom comics I did for super-generous Kickstarter backers, and it featured the girls of Multiplex acting a bit oddly about a visitor to the theater. Check it out, if you haven't already! Even though it's not in continuity, it's still a Multiplex strip!
I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch or whatever, but it looks like I may have found a distributor for Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show. I'll let you know as soon as the ink is dry. So the chances of seeing the book at Amazon and in comics shops and bookstores around the US and Canada are, I think, a fair bit higher. I'll let you know more as soon as I know more.
This doesn't affect the Multiplex website's sales, of course — which I naturally make a significantly larger cut — as in the entire cut, so buying directly from me will always be the best way to support the strip.
Whether or not this is finalized, the promotional thingy still stands, no matter what — if I get 250 pre-orders before September 18th, everyone who has pre-ordered gets a free Multiplex bookmark.
But wait! There’s more!
Although Multiplex will be ending soon, thanks to readers like you on Patreon, the Multiplex 10 will stay open for business! I’ll be posting bonus comics from future print collections, Multiplex Movie Review strips, updates on the upcoming Multiplex animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.
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!

Heads up, completists. I have a three page story in the new Mae Volume One TPB from Dark Horse Comics. This is the same one I co-wrote (with Mae creator Gene Ha) and as a thank-you for backers of its original Kickstarter edition — and Dark Horse’s editors decided to include the story in the back matter of this new collection, along with a bunch of other short stories by other great creators.
BUT… I have a story in a Dark Horse-published book! That’s cool!
If you’re not familiar with Mae, it’s an all-ages adventure comic by Gene Ha (Top Ten and a billion other comics). Here’s the official Dark Horse synopsis:
When she was just a girl, Abbie discovered a portal to a fantasy world and has since had great adventures there: defeating horrible monsters, power-mad scientists, and evil nobles. But when she turned twenty-one it all came apart and she decided to return home. Her sister, Mae, had no idea what happened to Abbie all this time, and Abbie’s tales are too hard to believe—that is, until the monsters and other terrible creatures start to cross over to our world . . . Collects issues #1–#6.
I highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun. You can learn more about Mae Volume One on Amazon.
