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.
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?
