#512: Say It, Don’t Spray It

September 17, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #126: Because Crying Equals Drama

So, alas, with less than 24 hours left, it looks like the Multiplex Pre-Order Sales Drive will fall short of the goal by nearly $2,000. This one's not gonna come down to the wire, I don't think. We still got a healthy number of book pre-orders, and the Michael Bay is the Devil T-shirt pre-orders are moving along quite well, though, so thank you to everyone who donated or ordered something through the Multiplex Store!

Budget-conscious Multiplex fans may want to order their copies of the book through Barnes&Noble.com, who's offering it for 32% off. While I don't personally get nearly as much money from B&N sales, ordering it from there may encourage them to order more, and to even stock some in their brick-and-mortar stores, so it's not a bad thing! (And consider leaving a review of the book, too!)

I had to put off the next Multiplex Movie Club review (of Black Dynamite) 'til next week. All the pre-orders are piling up, I'm falling behind on Artist's Edition sketches (some of which I might share soon), and the book's gotta come first. So you have another few days to watch it before I post my review! WATCH IT!

The girl in the last panel here is a new staff member — namely Angie Booth, the Kickstarter backer who won a "job" at the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. Or, it's supposed to be her, anyway. The front angle looks more like her. Anyway, sorry, Angie! It's supposed to look like you.

You'll find out more about the Multiplex version of Angie soon — and meet a few OTHER new staff kids. Or heroes are all supervisors now, so it's about time they had someone to supervise, huh?

For the last time, if you are in the Chicago area, the Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show release party/signing will be at Third Coast Comics this Saturday (not Friday, as I mistakenly said on Monday) from 4–7pm, followed by the monthly Chicago Comic Book Meetup, where I'll be a special guest. Stop in, get a copy of the book early, and have a good time! Bring booze!

Mae Volume One is now available… and I have a comic in it!

Friday, February 17, 2017

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.
