#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!

Multiplex Movie Review comics MILESTONE GOALS

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

In case you missed it, I shared a short PDF eBook with eight Multiplex Movie Review comics on Patreon and elsewhere (publicly/free/etc.) Some of those comics might be new to you. But that got me thinking… which is never a good thing…

We are in the last few days of the Multiplex: The Revenge Kickstarter project! Thanks to a veritable onslaught of pledges (and pledge increases!) yesterday, things are looking less grim than yesterday: we’ve just passed 80% of the funding goal! This means there is less than $5000 to raise — but only three and a half days to do it in.

SO. Let’s do this. I’ve set three milestones, at $2,000 increments, to get us to the funding goal with a little time to spare. If we pass each of them (any time before MIDNIGHT), I’ll do the following Multiplex Movie Review comics — one page per movie — and share them right here in the Deleted Scenes blog… you know, after I watch the movie and make the comic. (In case you’re curious, of the movies here, I’ve only ever seen the first three Transformers movies.)

The first one’s easy, too, since we’re (currently) at $19,250…
