Notes from the Manager
There are a few other strips with the Blogger in them, but they're not as important.
There are probably a few of you who thought the last strip was a cliffhanger (I know at least one of you did, because he said so in a comment). Sorry. :) It wasn't a cliffhanger. It was an ending. I wasn't sure if I would revisit New Year's after midnight downstairs or not (and ultimately, obviously, decided not), but Jason and Becky's after-midnight time is between the two of them.
If it makes you feel better, they probably shared a friendly peck, but I know you guys, and I know some of you would have blown it out of proportion. ;)
Anyway. For those of you who don't follow the Deleted Scenes updates yet: I reviewed Tangled and The King's Speech last week! And I'll try to get a review of The Green Hornet up later this week (I'll be seeing it tomorrow night thanks to AICN's Capone).
Thanks to everybody who posted a guest strip in the last couple of weeks: Bill Walko, Iris Amelia, Daniel Farrelly, and Pizdzius Swedzioszek! I'll get them added to the Guest Strips section very soon, I swear. Holidays are hectic, y'know?

Now that the Kickstarter project has ended and Multiplex: The Revenge is funded (yay!), I can open up the floor for pre-orders to non-backers via BackerKit. I’m using BackerKit instead of handling things through the Multiplex store (as I did with Book Two), because merging everything and keeping track of essentially two separate crowdfunding projects proved to be a huge headache; BackerKit streamlines that process for me tremendously.
NOT all of the Kickstarter rewards are available, and some are slightly different: i.e. you don’t get your name on the Acknowledgments page of the book, and while you can get vector portraits, I can’t promise that you’ll make it into the third book. (There is only so much room!) Some of the higher level rewards (like original comic strips) are not available, either — although if you have your heart set on one of those, just shoot me an e-mail, and we can probably figure something out.
The current stretch goal is to fund a second printing of Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show (Book One), a necessary step before I can doing a fourth printed book. The amount needed is $7500, with roughly $1,238.97 of Kickstarter’s surplus (the amount over the $24,000 funding goal) applicable toward that. Once this goal is reached, I’ll add Book One as a reward goal for ANY Kickstarter or BackerKit backers (“preorder backer,” as they call them).
I’ll put up a few more visible graphics on the site later — there’s no urgency at this time, so I won’t be bugging you guys about it often. These BackerKit pre-orders will be open for several months and only “lock” in the summer shortly before Book Three goes to press.
