#423: Refresher Course

December 14, 2009

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #63: Take a Stand; #355: The Man Trap

The Kickstarter funding period has ended — with an astonishing last-minute bang, bringing the total to $13,194.50 in pledges. That does not mean I'll get all of it, mind you; many peoples' credit cards have errored out or are still being processed.

Approximately $12,500 of the pledges have already been successfully processed, so there's nothing major to worry about — but, if you have recieved a notice from Kickstarter asking you to update your credit card information, please do so quickly! If your payment has not been processed by December 18th, it will be cancelled — you'll lose access to the backers-exclusive posts and obviously you will not receive your pledge rewards.

I did draw the winner of the "Win a Job at the Multiplex 10 Cinemas" contest already, though: ANGIE BOOTH… which is a perfect last name for someone working at a movie theater, come to think of it. Congratulations, Angie! Angie the Second will pop up at the Multiplex 10 some time in the spring or summer of 2010, after the print collection has gone to press. First things first!

For any questions about what's happening next with the book, keep your eyes peeled on the Kickstarter Updates page, or the Multiplex: Book 1 Progress Report box below!

The Multiplex 10 is ten years old this month

Multiplex-10-Years

Ten years ago this month (on July 10th, 2005, to be specific), I posted two shitty looking comics to a corner of the Stripped Books website. At that point, I had no idea what I was in for: it was a gag strip that would quickly transform into a character-based comedy where people talk about movies — not just superficially about specific movies, but about how people watch and talk about movies of all kinds. The art got a little better, too.

The Multiplex characters took on a life of their own and ultimately turned this comic into an eleven- or twelve-year “epic” about the movie theater industry in one of the most interesting periods in its hundred-year history (and also this one jerk who kinda sorta becomes a slightly better person maybe if you squint your eyes and cock your head to the side a little).

Multiplex’s readership grew quickly in those first few years, thanks in very large part to a pair of guest strips on PvP and some well-placed Project Wonderful ad campaigns (thanks, Something Positive and Shortpacked!), and in the years since it has since retained a small but passionate readership that has supported me time and time again: the Patreon project of course, as well as two successful Kickstarter projects to fund two books I’m very proud of.*

Thank you for allowing me to tell this story.

Thank you for reading.
