Notes from the Manager
And there we go. Max and Whitey might have some farewells in the very near future, but yep, they'll be leaving the Multiplex 10 Cinemas soon.
Unlike Max, though, Whitey still lives in the Chicago area, of course, and since he has some friends at the Multiplex 10, you can expect to see him again from time to time. (Probably a little less frequently than Devi, who has been absent for a while, now that I think about it, but… from time to time.)
By the way, I created a new landing page about Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show. I'll be using it for ads and such, but it's also a good page to send people to if they're curious about the book, sort of like a digital sell sheet. You can use the "Tell a Friend!" buttons towards the bottom of the page to send it to anyone you think might be interested in buying — or selling! — the book.
You can also print out the actual sell sheet and hand it off to your local bookstore or comics shop, if you think they might be interested in the book. Since it unfortunately looks like Diamond is not interested in carrying the book at this point, this is the only way to ensure that your local retailers hear about the book and know that you — and potentially other customers of theirs — are interested in it. And without appearing in Previews, it's going to be a lot harder for the book to sell well — which also means it's going to be a lot harder to get Book 2 made.
How much Multiplex can you handle?!
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!

I thought I’d share this one publicly, rather than just to the Kickstarter and Patreon folks. It’ll be used as the “chapter illustration” for the back matter — which means that it will be directly opposite the last page of the comics in Book Three.
Anyway. I just have a couple of illustrations (the cover and the cover/chapter illustration for Chapter 15) before production is officially wrapped — which means I’ll be moving on to proofreading, pre-press, and other boring stuff next! BUT there will be movie review comics and things like that going up at Kickstarter and Patreon during that time.
