Notes from the Manager
There will be five updates this week (some of them guest strips), so keep coming back!
For those of you who haven't heard of Rare Exports — pretty much all of you, I wager — this is Rare Exports:
I caught it at an advance screening last week, thanks to Ain't It Cool News and Gapers Block's Steve Prokopy (a.k.a. Capone). It's a bizarre, Finnish "Christmas tale" that… defies explanation, I guess. You can get the gist of it from the trailer, though. It's a flawed film on many levels, but it's funny and so many kinds of weird that I can't help but recommend it. If it's playing near you (and, for the vast majority of you, it isn't), see it — on Christmas Eve or Christmas, if you can. (Sure enough, it opens in Chicago on Christmas Eve, at the lovely Music Box Theatre.)
UPDATE: A couple of
Finnish readers have informed me that there were two Rare Exports short films. They're both on YouTube, of course. I've only seen one of them (which is really funny), but I think the feature is an… er, "origin" story of sorts, so if you are able to see the film and want to go in totally blind, you may not want to watch them first.
Sorry to disappoint those of you hoping for one of the girls to dress up as Quorra or Jem from Tron Legacy; maybe Thursday… Having seen the movie — and unlike half the internet, I enjoyed it despite its many (many) shortcomings. It's pretty, it sounds great, and I thought it was fun.
What did you think — or did you let the negative buzz discourage you from checking it out?

Just like the headline says, the Multiplex: The Revenge Kickstarter project ends TODAY (Friday, July 31) at 9PM Central!
It has successfully passed the goal, so I do not need any additional funds to finish, print, and fulfill Book Three— but any additional funds raised will go toward the production and marketing of the book series: the creation of the bonus strips for Book Four (after Book Three is completed) or a second printing for Book One, for example.
While I will be setting up a BackerKit pre-order page to allow for “pre-order backers” (as BackerKit calls them) to order a selection of the physical rewards, many of the higher level Kickstarter rewards involve background appearances in the book and I need to lock down who those people are in order to get to work on the book. Therefore, those higher level reward packs are exclusively available to Kickstarter backers. Lock them down while you can!
