Multiplex #1042: You’re in Good Hands

Kurt and Franklin are, of course, referring to events from waaaay back in Chapter 15 in the final panels here — events that will be expanded upon slightly in any collected editions of the story that might be in the works…

Speaking of which. There are just 69 hours left the Multiplex: The Revenge PBS telethon I mean Kickstarter project… The funding period ends on Friday at 9PM Central!

Since Monday, the Kickstarter project has really rallied, and we’re $3,520 away from the goal! That’s within arm’s reach. In fact, that's roughly how much we’ve raised in the last 48 hours. But it could still go either way: a huge amount of the pledged funds in the last two days has been due to existing backers increasing their pledges, which is awesome of them — but it is not sustainable growth, either. If you haven’t already, please consider backing the project!

In case you missed any of this: in the last few days, I’ve added your choice of pencils or inks from hand-drawn comics to many of the higher level reward packs… I’ve released the first chapter from Multiplex: The Revenge (Book Three) for FREE to give everyone a taste of what the books will be like… and I've added new milestone goals in which I'll make new Multiplex movie review comics featuring Jason's reviews of the finest films from Michael Bay’s oeuvre — the first of which we've already met! That means Jason will be reviewing The Rock in the near future.

If we reach $22,000 by TONIGHT (July 29) at midnight, I will watch Bad Boys I and II (and create a review comic for each of them) — and we're already just about 1/4 of the way there!

If we reach $24,000 by THURSDAY (July 30) at midnight, I will watch all four Bayformers movies! (I’ve seen 1–3 before, but I will rewatch them, because I am an ethical movie reviewer. Even when I'm writing fictional movie reviews.)

See you Friday! I gotta go watch The Rock.

Multiplex Movie Review comics MILESTONE GOALS

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

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…

UPDATE (July 28 at 6:45pm): The Rock is UNLOCKED!
