#967: Back to the Well, Part One

November 14, 2014

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #940: You Mean, I Have to Choose?; #941: The Longer Version; #942: Minority Report, Part One

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is out on Blu-ray as of Tuesday, but Multiplex is still back in August or so, when the movie was just about to leave theaters (obviously).

Anyway. Sharp-eyed observers will notice that the strip is now in Chapter 36. After a lot of back and forth over the last several weeks, I decided to break Chapter 35 after #947, making this somewhere in the middle of Chapter 36. As the story progresses, I’ll have to decide whether Book Seven is going to just be one massive book or if Chapters 31–36 (or 37) end up being two books and the whole series runs for ten books rather than nine. It doesn’t entirely matter, really: the broad strokes of these last three or four years are already figured out, whether that’s going to get printed… hopefully, eventually… as two or three books.

I’ll be posting bonus comics from future print collections, Multiplex Movie Review strips, updates on the upcoming Multiplex 10 animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.

Say hello to Kurt and Jason

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Hello! The Multiplex 10 Kickstarter project ends in just over 14 days. As of this writing, we are a little north of $12,000, so just over 80% of our base goal. Judging from my last two Kickstarters, we’re doing very well. The final week should pick up considerably over this past week.

BUT don’t forget that we still have a milestone goal of Jason reviewing every Harry Potter movie if we make that $15,000 baseline goal on/before Wednesday, April 26th, though! (Plus Fantastic Beasts if we make it on/before Monday, April 24th. But that seems kind of unlikely at this point.) I thought that was a fun premise… but it’s up to the Gods of Kickstarter now.

I also officially added our first (and, at this point, only) STRETCH GOAL. At $20,000, we’ll be able to do a few extra things:

  • Smoother, 4K animation
  • 5.1 Surround Sound mix (courtesy sound designer Ian Vargo)
  • AND… a theatrical premiere at the Somerville Theatre here in Somerville, MA. (All backers at the Special Thanks level and up will get free admission… and, of course, transportation is not provided.)

Thanks so much for all your support. I’m exciting at how the Kickstarter project is coming together, and I can’t wait to get started on the animated short. (Full time, I mean. I’m already working on it!)

Pledge your support today! If you haven’t already!
