#651: Mortal Combat, Part Four

My site hosts, Slicehost, went and got themselves bought and essentially shut down by Rackspace, so I've changed changed hosts yet again — this time to a relatively new company called 6sync. I can't give them an unqualified recommendation yet, since I've only used them for three days, but their pricing is fantastic and… so far so good.

We had a few hitches on Friday, neither of which 6sync is to blame for: the issues were partly because I deleted the old host prematurely (oops) and partly because a bot hacked into the site's database and screwed it all up, but I think everything is cleared up now…?

Anyway. I know I complain about the hand-drawn art a lot, so I suppose I should also mention that I'm really happy with the art in today's strip. See? I'm not down on my skillz all the time. (Granted, I retouched the hell out of the inks in Photoshop, but hey, the end result is the point, right?)

The reaction to the current arc has, really truly honestly, been overwhelmingly positive. In fact, it has been uniformly positive, and I've been having a blast doing it, even when I whine about the art not being as good as I see it in my head. Thanks, as always, for reading.

Say hello to Kurt and Jason

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Hello! The Multiplex 10 Kickstarter project ends in just over 14 days. As of this writing, we are a little north of $12,000, so just over 80% of our base goal. Judging from my last two Kickstarters, we’re doing very well. The final week should pick up considerably over this past week.

BUT don’t forget that we still have a milestone goal of Jason reviewing every Harry Potter movie if we make that $15,000 baseline goal on/before Wednesday, April 26th, though! (Plus Fantastic Beasts if we make it on/before Monday, April 24th. But that seems kind of unlikely at this point.) I thought that was a fun premise… but it’s up to the Gods of Kickstarter now.

I also officially added our first (and, at this point, only) STRETCH GOAL. At $20,000, we’ll be able to do a few extra things:

  • Smoother, 4K animation
  • 5.1 Surround Sound mix (courtesy sound designer Ian Vargo)
  • AND… a theatrical premiere at the Somerville Theatre here in Somerville, MA. (All backers at the Special Thanks level and up will get free admission… and, of course, transportation is not provided.)

Thanks so much for all your support. I’m exciting at how the Kickstarter project is coming together, and I can’t wait to get started on the animated short. (Full time, I mean. I’m already working on it!)

Pledge your support today! If you haven’t already!
