Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #512: Say It, Don’t Spray It
Thank you to everybody who made the Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show release party at Third Coast Comics a great time!
Before Thursday rolls around, the book will be officially on sale, but books are actually already shipping! The last batch of Kickstarter books (and some pre-orders) will be shipping TODAY.
Today and tomorrow, I'll be working on getting all of the Artist's Edition sketches drawn (I will probably share a couple of them with you at the Deleted Scenes blog, since I haven't had time to draw or write anything else in the past week to make it more interesting over there).
I hope to get the promised Black Dynamite review and a review of The Town up over there this week, so keep checking back. Short version of The Town: it's a terrific crime flick. Less heavy or thought-provoking than Gone Baby Gone by far, but smart, funny, and very, very tense in spots, with three great robberies anchoring the film.
Pre-orders for the Michael Bay is the Devil T-shirt are still going! We are about 10 shirts shy of printing up the shirts — so it's moving along, but it's not a sure thing yet. If we don't get them by October 4th, I'll be forced to cancel the orders and refund everybody. And that would make me sad, because I totally want one of these, too.

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
