Related Strips: #545: I Know Now What I Must Become
Another surprise update! (That's what RSS feeds and Twitter and Facebook and iPhone apps and shiz like that are all for, y'all.)
There will be two more updates: one hand-drawn, one regular one… and I'm not sure which day they'll go up. So, y'know, check back.
Finalized details for my signing next weekend at Acme Books & Comics in Peoria, Illinois: It will be on Saturday, January 15th from 12pm to 3pm. I'll be signing books and stuff like that. Fun times!
I'll be promoting the book and the strip and the signing on WMDB 1470 on the Greg & Dan Show on Friday the 14th (bright and early at 8:10am, but they put segments up as a podcast, so I'll link it up for youse guys after the fact if you're interested in that noise). I'm not sure how long I'll be on. Probably like five minutes. :1
So: short version of my Green Hornet review (which will be up in the near future at Deleted Scenes): it's funny, it's fun, the action is terrific (but there's not enough of it)… aaaand, unfortunately, most of the best, insane Gondry-esque shots I was hoping for are in the trailer, save for one sequence near the end that's pretty hilariously bizarre. I'd have enjoyed myself more if they had cranked up the crazy.
But wait! There’s more!
Although Multiplex will be ending soon, thanks to readers like you on Patreon, the Multiplex 10 will stay open for business! I’ll be posting bonus comics from future print collections, Multiplex Movie Review strips, updates on the upcoming Multiplex animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.
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!

Heads up, completists. I have a three page story in the new Mae Volume One TPB from Dark Horse Comics. This is the same one I co-wrote (with Mae creator Gene Ha) and as a thank-you for backers of its original Kickstarter edition — and Dark Horse’s editors decided to include the story in the back matter of this new collection, along with a bunch of other short stories by other great creators.
BUT… I have a story in a Dark Horse-published book! That’s cool!
If you’re not familiar with Mae, it’s an all-ages adventure comic by Gene Ha (Top Ten and a billion other comics). Here’s the official Dark Horse synopsis:
When she was just a girl, Abbie discovered a portal to a fantasy world and has since had great adventures there: defeating horrible monsters, power-mad scientists, and evil nobles. But when she turned twenty-one it all came apart and she decided to return home. Her sister, Mae, had no idea what happened to Abbie all this time, and Abbie’s tales are too hard to believe—that is, until the monsters and other terrible creatures start to cross over to our world . . . Collects issues #1–#6.
I highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun. You can learn more about Mae Volume One on Amazon.
