Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #52: Young Love
Welcome, new readers from C2E2! If I didn't get the chance to explain it to you, the humor in Multiplex is largely character-based, not gag-based, so it would be best for you to start from the beginning.
If you aren't familiar at all with the cast of Kick-Ass, you might not know that Chloe Grace Moretz — a.k.a. Hit Girl — is 13. (She was 11 when she filmed Kick-Ass.)
Apparently I come across as grumpy on the internet. That's because I use Twitter to bitch about shit and like to swear. I'm actually a very nice person when you meet me, as those of you who visited me at C2E2 (hopefully) realized. :) Thanks to everybody who came out and chatted with me or bought stuff! You rock.
The con was a blast, Joel Watson (Hijinks Ensue) couldn't have been more fun to share a table with — and as I found out on a Friday night karaoke excursion with a ton of other fellow cartoonists, he is a force to be reckoned with at singing "Mr. Roboto" by Styx. I kid you not. S. Dave Shabet (Dead Winter) also does an awesome James Hetfield impression, as well.
And thanks again to Harrison Pious (My Little World) for bringing me a flask of brandy. You get the Reader of the Year award, Harrison. All you Kickstarter backers collectively got it last year. :)

I just purchased a new shipping module for The Multiplex Store that gives me more flexibility in setting shipping and handling costs, so US customers will see much better rates on all (physical) items in the Multiplex Store. If any of you guys in the US balked at the shipping costs before, be sure to check them out now.
Books are $5 for the first one then $1.50 per additional book (rather than $5 per book), saving you $3.50 if you order two books. T-shirts are now $4 for the first shirt (any size) and $1.50 per additional shirt. And sketches and other artwork are also $4 for the first item, then $1 per additional item.
Rates for international customers are unchanged; I still use USPS First Class International’s rates as they are quoted by the USPS without any additional markup.
Now is as good as any to pick up that copy of Multiplex: There and Back Again!
