Multiplex Movie Review comics MILESTONE GOALS

In case you missed it, I shared a short PDF eBook with eight Multiplex Movie Review comics on Patreon and elsewhere (publicly/free/etc.) Some of those comics might be new to you. But that got me thinking… which is never a good thing…

We are in the last few days of the Multiplex: The Revenge Kickstarter project! Thanks to a veritable onslaught of pledges (and pledge increases!) yesterday, things are looking less grim than yesterday: we’ve just passed 80% of the funding goal! This means there is less than $5000 to raise — but only three and a half days to do it in.

SO. Let’s do this. I’ve set three milestones, at $2,000 increments, to get us to the funding goal with a little time to spare. If we pass each of them (any time before MIDNIGHT), I’ll do the following Multiplex Movie Review comics — one page per movie — and share them right here in the Deleted Scenes blog… you know, after I watch the movie and make the comic. (In case you’re curious, of the movies here, I’ve only ever seen the first three Transformers movies.)

The first one’s easy, too, since we’re (currently) at $19,250…

Multiplex: Chapter 11

With four days and 30% of the funding goal for Multiplex: The Revenge remaining, things are looking a little bleak. In hindsight, there are some changes that I could have made to keep the budget (and the funding goal) down. I detail a bit of that in this post over on the Kickstarter project site, so I won’t go into it again.

I can’t change the funding goal now, though, but what I can do is add to the project to make up for that. (Again, visit the Kickstarter page for details.) And so one of the things I want to do is to share Multiplex: Chapter 11 with you — FREE — in order to give you a taste of what the whole book will be like… you know, with the obvious hope that some of you who haven’t already will consider backing the project.

I’ve also made Chapter 6 (the first one from Book Two) free, as well, because it’d be weird to have Chapter 1 and Chapter 11 free but not Chapter 6, too. (I learned that “first one’s free” thing from drug dealers in movies.)

I had forgotten about an old poster design…

Fittingly, I had forgotten about one old Multiplex movie poster parody from 2009 — for Memento.

So while I can’t edit the rewards description in the sidebar on the Kickstarter website, there will be FOUR, not three, movie poster parodies in the 11″x17″ mini-poster set included with the “College Dorm Pack” and anything including the “Premium Sponsor Pack” (with no difference in the pledge amounts).

That makes Memento, The Breakfast Club, and Serenity — plus an all-new parody design suggested by the Kickstarter backers.

If you’d like these posters (and a copy of Book Three, of course), please support the Multiplex: The Revenge Kickstarter project today! They will be available to non-backers after they’re shipped as rewards, but — like the book — they won’t get printed if we don’t make the goal. As of this writing, we’re at 48% with 17 days left in the funding period remaining, so with the usual boost of pledges later on in the funding period, things look pretty good — but it’s not over yet.

Don’t hesitate! I can start work on the book the SECOND the book goes over the funding goal!

Multiplex: There and Back Again is $14.95 on Amazon for a limited time

Multiplex: Enjoy Your ShowIf you don’t already have copies of Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show (Book One) or Multiplex: There and Back Again (Book Two), get ready for Multiplex: The Revenge (Book Three) by ordering yours today from Amazon! Book Two is $14.95 — with Prime shipping — for a limited time! (International readers should be able to get better shipping from them than I can offer, as well.)

You can also get Book Two along with the Book Three Kickstarter — and a very, very limited number of Book Ones, with the funds helping support the production publication of Book Three, but if you want Book Two sooner rather than later, this is the way to go!
