Trailer Watch: Snow White and the Huntsman full trailer

The trailer for director Rupert Sanders’s dark, action-flick take on Snow White, Snow White and the Huntsman, looks surprisingly good, although I still can’t get over the idea that Kristen Stewart is supposed to be more beautiful than Charlize Theron. But I guess it’s a fantasy movie, so… whatever.

If you want to see more, Xfinity has a five minute preview, as well.

Aside from Ms. Theron and Miss Stewart, Chris Hemsworth plays the Huntsman, and the seven dwarves are Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Graham, Ray Winstone, and Nick Frost. The film hits theaters on June 1, 2012.

Multiplex: There and Back Again — The Kickstarter Project

People have asked me about Multiplex: Book 2 for a while now, and I’ve never had a very good answer about when I was going to have it done. I hadn’t planned on using Kickstarter again, but considering I’m about to head into grad school, and I don’t have any steady freelance work to speak of, now just seemed like as good a time as any to get Book 2 finished — if, once again, I can pay my bills while I work on it… and, of course, the print run.

And so… Multiplex: There and Back Again Lightning Round, the Kickstarter Project for Book 2. And, if we make more than the goal, maybe even Book 3 as well.

I don’t want to rehash everything I say on the Kickstarter Project page, so please just go there and read it.

Finished, already?


As I said there, the fundraising period for Book 1 was way too long. This time, I’m doing three weeks and out. (Well, 23 days, so it ends at midnight on April 12th.) This way, I won’t get sick of it, and hopefully you won’t get sick of me, either. If we don’t make our goal in that time, so be it. No Book 2 for… who knows how long? But I’d like to do it sooner rather than later, and I hope that enough of you do, too.

You already know that I will live up to my end of the project — I did with Book 1, didn’t I? You already know what the book will look like — it’ll look like Book 1, or maybe a little better. You already know what Kickstarter is, because it’s like this huge freaking THING now, whereas when I did Book 1, I was the first webcartoonist to use it, ever. So all the biggest question marks with the first project don’t apply anymore.

The last remaining question is: Do you want Book 2?
