Notes from the Manager
I'm writing this before I leave for ECCC, which will be over by the time you read this. But I have to write something for the blog post or the Kickstarter widget at right will break the layout, so I'm just going to make some reasonable guesses as to what all happened over the weekend…
WHEW! Emerald City Comicon was great, but I'm so tired.
Aw man, sharing a table with with Angela Melick of Wasted Talent and my ex-Triple Feature co-host Tom Brazelton of Theater Hopper was a blast. It was great, as always, to see David Willis, Spike, and Kel — a.k.a. the rest of Blank Label Comics — and my good friend Joel Watson of HiJINKS Ensue, as well. Joel did some amazing karaoke on Saturday night.
As for the show itself, it was really crazy fighting off all those fangirls. (I am spoken for, ladies!) And I was really surprised when both Summer Glau and George Takei bought copies of Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show! Who knew they were fans, right? Unbelievable!
I continue to be stunned by the amazing outpouring of generosity of all the Kickstarter backers. We've now passed $10,000 in the Kickstarter project! Thank you so much to everybody who has pledged so far — but we still have a long way to go yet, so please, if you haven't pledged yet and want to help, check out the Kickstarter project page.
See you Thursday!

We’ve just hit the second milestone goal ($600)!
What this means is, once my patrons’ accounts are charged next (around the first of next month), MULTIPLEX WILL BE COMPLETELY READER-SUPPORTED AND DEVOID OF THOSE ANNOYING THIRD PARTY ADS. Thank you so incredibly much to all of the Patreon backers and anyone else who spread the word about the project (or Multiplex, really)!
Once I can roll out the reworked site, strip images will be significantly larger (most likely 900px wide), yet the website should still load a bit faster. My programmer Jelly and I are looking at making the site both responsive and retina-friendly at the same time, but those may take a while longer… so no promises for those just yet.
I would just yank the ads now, because I hate them, except that would screw up the site layout. Removing them is not quite as simple as it might seem, I’m afraid, and will involve a bit of a redesign, as I mention in the Milestone Goals sidebar over at Patreon.
When we reach the NEXT milestone goal ($1000): I will post (at least) four Multiplex Movie Reviews or other bonus comics per month here for patrons! So it will be allllmost like three strips per week.
