Multiplex: There and Back Again wins an IPPY!

Multiplex: There and Back Again final cover

I’m very pleased to (officially) announce that Multiplex: There and Back Again (Book Two) has won the Gold Medal for Graphic Novel/Drawn Book–Humor/Cartoon in the 2014 Independent Book Publisher Awards (a.k.a. the IPPYs)! That’s right, Multiplex is now an award-winning comic strip, and I am an award-winning cartoonist. Also, an award-winning publisher and book designer. (I don’t really count the 2008 WCRCA for Best Supporting Character.You can see the complete list of winners over at the Independent Publisher site.

In celebration, I’m offering $5 off Multiplex: There and Back Again for the next TWO WEEKS ONLY! (This basically amounts to free shipping for US folks — or a free upgrade to the Artist’s Edition — and a shipping discount for the rest of you fine folks who have read this far down.) This sale expires 5/20/14!

Original Multiplex art giveaway – for Patrons only!

Scan-140324-0001

As a special thank-you to my Patreon backers, I’m giving away the inked original art for Multiplex #810, one of the Wrath of Khan/Into Darkness smoosh-up strips to one lucky Patreon backer.

PATRONS AS OF APRIL 1ST (or whenever Patreon charges your accounts again next) ARE ELIGIBLE. So for non-Patreon backers reading this, you can sign up and get your name in the proverbial hat. ANY pledge level is eligible.

I will pay for shipping anywhere in the world, and I sure hope I don’t regret saying that. :) I will announce the winner shortly after patrons’ accounts are charged for the month (usually before the 3rd of the month).

Multiplex Movie Review comics (starring Jason)

Jason explains everything you need to know about this bonus comic in the strip itself:

Other films reviewed to date are The Addams Family movies, The Lives of Others, Rubber, Get Real, and Transformers: The Movie. Some of them are kinda funny, some of them are actually serious, but they’re all fun, I hope. Anyway, they were available to Kickstarter backers, of course, and now also my Patreon patrons in the Activity Stream — and since I enjoyed doing them, I going to keep doing them as exclusive Patreon bonus comics from time to time (and, yes, Kurt will get to do a review now and then, too).

So consider this a sneak preview of being a Patreon patron! Support Multiplex via Patreon to read the rest in the patrons-only Activity Stream — and whether or not you’re already a patron, there’s a movie you’d like to see Jason review, let me know here!

They PRE-ORDERED Multiplex: There and Back Again (Book Two). What happened next blew their frickin’ minds.

(They got copies of it in the mail.)

Multiplex: There and Back Again final cover

Anyway, yep: it’s time. Surly film snob Jason, his horror buff BFF Kurt, and the rest of the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas return in the second print collection of your favorite movie-themed webcomic, Multiplex. In this volume, we meet the Multiplex 10’s archnemeses, the staff of Flickhead Video, and Jason & Devi’s relationship hits the rocks.

Multiplex: There and Back Again collects strips #103–216 from the archives, plus over 20 bonus comics — and it is now available for PRE-ORDER from the Multiplex Store!

Book Two officially goes on sale on March 15, 2014. Order your copy now to make sure it’s shipped in the week of March 17th!

AND THAT’S NOT ALL. NOPE. The “This Isn’t Your Living Room” workplace poster featuring Jason is also available — also as a pre-order — and shipping alongside Book Two. The 18″x24″ poster is $10, and it is fucking awesome.
