#607: In a Puff of Smoke

I guess I lied. I had two loose ends I wanted to tie up for Book 5 — but these are more of an epilogue sort of thing, really. #606 was the real ending, really.

Some of you may notice the font for the title and the majority of the site's headlines and such is a little tiny bit different. If your browser supports it, you're seeing Museo Sans instead of Helvetica or Verdiana or whatever abomination of typography you're used to seeing — this matches the design of the book more closely now.

If you're not seeing it, or you're having issues with the site running slowly (or slower than usual, anyway), feel free to shoot me an e-mail with your system and browser's details.

I've been wanting to try web fonts for a while, but could never figure it out. I found Font Squirrel's @font-face generator, though, which has finally made them something I could understand — so, I wanted to give them a little endorsement here. If you want to add some snazzy type to your site, have a TINY bit of coding skills, but don't want to pay a monthly fee like with TypeKit, check it out.

Anyway! As of yesterday, Multiplex turned 6, but apparently you guys have been celebrating in the comments for #606 all weekend, and you've all been incredibly kind. Thanks so much for your comments. It means a great deal to me that anybody besides myself would find this comic strip interesting.

Mae Volume One is now available… and I have a comic in it!

Friday, February 17, 2017

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.
