The Multiplex iPhone app has been approved and is now available in the App Store. It is FREE (which of course means it's iAd-supported), so if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, please give it a spin, and if you're so inclined, leave an honest review.
iPad users are better off sticking with the full website; it's a fairly straightforward app — a nice, clean, stripped-down interface to read Multiplex on a tiny screen, as opposed to navigating the full website and all the extra bells & whistles, and we think it does what it's supposed to do rather well.
Thanks are due to my brother Lawrence for coding the whole thing (not to mention my website), and to all the beta testing volunteers!
(Since I've already been asked, I'll add that yes, we are planning an Android version — but don't start holding your breath or anything yet. My brother is a busy busy guy.)
I'm running a T-shirt idea past the forumgoers, so if you'd like to check it out and let me know what you think, please do.
Lastly, the Multiplex Pre-Order/Sales Drive thingy is still going on! We're still just shy of half-way to the goal, but I think we can still make it. Pre-order a book now and get FREE STUFF. Who doesn't like free stuff? Even if you've already pre-ordered (or want to wait 'til you can flip through one with your own, greasy mitts), please consider buying a print or T-shirt to help support Multiplex.
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.
