Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #121: Happy Valentine’s Day
Thank you again to Greg Erskine for Wednesday's guest strip.
If, after me plugging it all week still makes you wonder what that big graphic to the right is, please take a few minutes to check out the Kickstarter site and watch the pitch video, and if you're a big fan of Multiplex, please reach for that credit card and make a pledge.
These are not donations! In exchange for your pledge, you'll receive AWESOME! REWARDS! for various pledge levels, including, of course, copies of the print book itself. (Check out the Kickstarter page to see the full list of rewards.)
Thank you so much to those who have gotten me to over
$1200 $1500 since just Sunday afternon, but it's still quite a ways to $7500. Even if you can't afford to pledge right now, you can help out by blogging about the Multiplex: Book 1 Club of Awesome, tweeting about it, Digging it — anything to help get the word out.
ALSO: Don't forget that I will be at the Windy City Comic Con this Saturday (9/19/09), at the Third Coast Comics booth and joining Tony Breed (Finn and Charlie are Hitched), John Campbell (Pictures for Sad Children), Justin Pierce (The Nonadventures of Wonderella) and C. Spike Trotman (Templar, AZ) on the "Webcomics 101" panel at 1pm. I'll have a few T-shirts for sale (no shipping costs!) and I'll be giving away free Multiplex buttons and drawing (free!) sketches, so stop by and see me!

We’ve just hit the second milestone goal ($600)!
What this means is, once my patrons’ accounts are charged next (around the first of next month), MULTIPLEX WILL BE COMPLETELY READER-SUPPORTED AND DEVOID OF THOSE ANNOYING THIRD PARTY ADS. Thank you so incredibly much to all of the Patreon backers and anyone else who spread the word about the project (or Multiplex, really)!
Once I can roll out the reworked site, strip images will be significantly larger (most likely 900px wide), yet the website should still load a bit faster. My programmer Jelly and I are looking at making the site both responsive and retina-friendly at the same time, but those may take a while longer… so no promises for those just yet.
I would just yank the ads now, because I hate them, except that would screw up the site layout. Removing them is not quite as simple as it might seem, I’m afraid, and will involve a bit of a redesign, as I mention in the Milestone Goals sidebar over at Patreon.
When we reach the NEXT milestone goal ($1000): I will post (at least) four Multiplex Movie Reviews or other bonus comics per month here for patrons! So it will be allllmost like three strips per week.
