#670: Getting Your Hands Dirty

February 17, 2012

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #616: Persuasion; #631: Reading Between the Lines

I hate to spoil the surprise, but I don't want you coming here on Monday wondering if I've forgotten that I do a webcomic at all.

Beginning Monday, Multiplex will be crossing over with Dave Willis's webcomic Shortpacked! I'm sure many of you already read it, and if you don't, now is as good a time as any to get started. It's one of my favorite webcomics (and I'm not even remotely a toy nerd), and one of a very few that I actually bother to read online rather than waiting for print collections.

Dave also happens to be one of my favorite people in webcomics, and he also helped coerce Spike and Kel into letting me to join Blank Label Comics collective.

The six-part crossover will start on Monday over at Shortpacked!, and then alterate for the next few days — so Multiplex on Tuesday, SP! on Wednesday, Multiplex on Thursday, and then conclude on Friday with strips at both sites. (Dave's Friday comic will be first chronologically.)

See you next Tuesday! And if you're reading this on Monday, that's why there won't be a new comic until tomorrow. By the way, for you eager beavers who like to read strips immediately, Shortpacked!'s strips post at midnight EST, while Multiplex's post at midnight CST.

Multiplex: The Revenge pre-orders are OPEN

Tuesday, August 4, 2015

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.

If you do want to get your funding dollars in to help support the ongoing production of the book series, check out the Multiplex: The Revenge Pre-Order page on BackerKit today!
