Notes from the Manager
If you couldn’t tell that that was Zombie Blogger on top of Becky, hopefully the title clued you in.
The other zombie is one of the Multiplex Movie Sponsors: Chris Hennes! He’ll be back on Thursday, when this arc continues.
A massive, heartfelt thank you to everybody who steeped up after last Thursday’s call to action regarding the Kickstarter fundraiser for Book Two!
299 300 very generous backers (as of this writing) have made Book Two possible. It will happen. I’m targetting a March 2013 publication date at this point, but it might be sooner than that. My distributor has a little bit of say, as does whichever printing company I go with, of course.
I'm still recovering from my cold, and have a large freelance project that I should have started on last week to get to, but starting next week, I will be working on Multiplex and Multiplex: There and Back Again (Book Two) full time. Thank you (again) to everybody who has made this possible.
(Well, almost entirely full time. I will still be taking occasional smaller illustration or production projects because I can't leave my regular clients hanging. I need to have work to go back to after Book Two is completed!)
While the pressure is off now, check out this Deleted Scenes post, because there are some incentives for pushing us even further past the goal.
Oh, related to that — at the request of a few readers who are unable to pledge via Kickstarter (because of Amazon Payments or whatever), I will be opening up a second avenue for donating toward the production of Book Two for PayPal users. I expect to launch that on Thursday, after the Kickstarter project has ended. More details then…

Bonus comics, drawings,
movie trailers and more

They’re showing all kinds of too much in this teaser trailer, I think, but it looks pretty great… despite the stupid character designs on the villains. (I was one of those people who enjoyed Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man flick quite a bit; the major clunky parts being where they seemed to think they needed to change up Uncle Ben’s death and other bits of canon, just to make it different from Raimi’s version.)
Bonus points: this is the best Spidey’s costume has ever looked in film. I hope Sony never changes the suit again (unless they do the black costume for a movie or two).
Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 2, 2014.
