Notes from the Manager
Ruh roh, Kurt! Looks like the Avengers aren't the only one with a Hulk! (Those are Jamal and Hatterman, if you didn't recognize their hand-drawn incarnations.)
Final notice! The Book 2 Project is closing up shop at midnight tonight! (Or sometime tomorrow.) So no more dawdling — support Book 2 if you want to, or forever hold your peace! You will, of course, be able to pre-order it about a month before the book is released, but this is your last chance to get any of the higher-end rewards, or your name on the Thank You page for Kickstarter and Book 2 Project supporters. Check out the various ways you can contribute in the Multiplex Store.
(If you're curious, we've raised a total of $19,926.42 from the combined funding projects — or $14,612.66 after Kickstarter, Amazon, and PayPal fees have been deducted, and money for taxes has been set aside. In other words, that smaller number is the actual book budget.)
Speaking of The Avengers, which comes out today in the US: Who's gonna see it? Who's taking an ethical stand against seeing this movie because of whatever? Who's already seen it because you live in some other fuckin' country? And who is gonna wait for a while for the crazy crowds to die down before they see it?
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.
