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!
But wait! There’s more!
Although Multiplex will be ending soon, thanks to readers like you on Patreon, the Multiplex 10 will stay open for business! I’ll be posting bonus comics from future print collections, Multiplex Movie Review strips, updates on the upcoming Multiplex animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.
In addition to the warm, soothing feeling of being a patron of the fine art of comic strippery, Patrons get access to free Multiplex eBooks, sneak previews of upcoming comics and other behind the scenes peeks, sketch giveaways, and more!

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.
