I spoke a little too soon yesterday. Last night, I got a bug up my hind end and cranked out the rest of the revised Chapter eBooks, so the revised edition of Chapters 1â€“5 are now available through the Multiplex Store at their new price of $1.49 apiece (or $5.95 for the set). As I mentioned yesterday, if you’ve already purchased the Chapter 1â€“5 set (and yes, this includes people who got them for “free” by backing the Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show Kickstarter project!), you can simply re-download them from your Multiplex Store’s Accounts / Downloads page to get the revised editions. While there’s no new content, there is a new introduction to the Chapter 1 eBook (explaining why I made the revised edition), and there are some corrections â€” mostly typos and small artistic/continuity errors that snuck into the previous editions and even the print book.
I’ve also created Chapter pages for the new eBooks â€” as well as the upcoming Chapter 6Â eBook, which is now available for pre-order!Â It should arrive in early October (if not sooner). I have one last bonus comic to create for it, and a few finishing touches to one of the “extended scenes,” so it won’t be long now.
The Chapter 6 eBookÂ collects strips #103â€“121 from theÂ MultiplexÂ archives, plus six bonus comics (a few of which first appeared at the Deleted Scenes blog) â€” all for only $1.49. Meet the Flickhead video gang for the first time all over again, and watch Jason make an ass out of himselfâ€¦ oh, wait. That’s pretty much all the time, isn’t it?
Anyway. If you’re one of those Multiplex fans eager to see the Book 2 print collection come out sooner or later, please get the Chapter eBooks. The revenue from the eBooks enables me to get the bonus material for the print collections done â€” so even if you’re not all that interest in the eBook format, they’re a great way to help speed up the production of the print collections!
And, you won’t be spoiling the printed book completely, since â€” like Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show (Book 1) â€” there will be even more bonus comics exclusive to the print book. Unlike Book 1, however, the exclusive comics in Book 2 won’t be a single story, but several strips spread throughout the book. I feel like the arc in Book 2 is a lot stronger than Book 1′s, since it centers around Becky & Jay and that period where Jason quit the Multiplex 10, so there wasn’t really a need to include a new, longer story, like there was in Book 1, and will be in Books 3 and 4 (which I think will revolve around Brian and James, respectively).
