Notes from the Manager
Don't think the Multiplex staff is going to get off this easy, after an accident like this. Stay tuned.
Once again, I am going to try for more than the usual two updates this week — and it will definitely happen. BUT… I don't know quite how many there will be. Three? Five? I don't know yet! I don't have a freelance job getting in the way this week — yet — so it's looking pretty good.
But there will definitely be at least two more — since they're already done — those two being bonus comics for the upcoming Chapter 6 eBook, which will go up over at the Deleted Scenes blog — so be sure to subscribe to the Multiplex Complete RSS feed (or at least to the Comics category feed) to keep up to date.
Time is running out on the Rhyme Bandits T-shirt pre-order! We're coming up short at the moment, so if you'd like to see this shirt get made, order it today!
(Thanks to Terrence Wiggins of Stagnant Pool Party for the help figuring out the title for this strip. It always helps to have a sounding board! Check out SPP if you like crazy-ass webcomics. When I archive-binged their relatively young strip, I had laughs a-plenty.)
UPDATE (5/31): The first of the two Chapter 6 bonus comics set for this week is up over at Deleted Scenes.

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.
