#510: He’s Misstra Know-It‑All

September 13, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #506: Hot and Cold

Here's a little audio aid for this strip, courtesy the real-life Kurt Bollinger [MP3, 1.1mb]. (Thanks, Kurt!)

There will be three strips again this week. On Wednesday, we'll say goodbye to Dominic forever (probably), and then on Friday, we'll get back to the Multiplex 10 and stay there for a while. I think.

Don't forget — if you're in the Chicago area, the Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show book release party/signing/whatever will be at Third Coast Comics this Friday Saturday from 4–7pm, followed by the monthly Chicago Comic Book Meetup, where I'll be a special guest. Stop in, get a copy of the book early, and have a good time!

We're getting closer to the $5000 goal… buuut it's not looking so good for the Multiplex Sales Drive, sad to say. Have we pre-sold all the books we're gonna pre-sell?!

Let's see if we can't try to get closer, anyway. There are TWO T-shirt designs new to the Multiplex Store you should check out. One is a handful of extra Multiplex/Breakfast Club T-shirts left over from the Kickstarter rewards — and the other is a "Michael Bay is the Devil" T-shirt (referencing not only the common Bay-hater refrain, but Jason's opinion from #369 and one of the Book 1 bonus comics).

HOWEVER. The Michael Bay T-shirt is only up for PRE-ORDER at this time and will ONLY be printed if I get 25 pre-orders by October 4th. Vote with your pocketbook, if you want to see these babies come into existence!

(If you've already ordered something and want to add either shirt to your order, e-mail me. In the US, it may not save you much, because books ship separately from T-shirts, but it can't hurt to check.)

EDIT: Oh, and I almost forgot to mention. The logo on Whitey's T-shirt in the strip is an unpaid, wholehearted endorsement of ibuymusic.net. Check out their website, and please support them and their positive efforts to help keep the artists you love working on the music you love.

Multiplex 10: the web series is coming!

Friday, January 5, 2018

Thanks to 130 backers at the Indiegogo Second Chance campaign, we’ve raised a healthy budget for the Multiplex 10 animated short’s release, film festival submission fees, and other promotional expenses — including all-new animated videos featuring some of the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. In other words: Multiplex 10 is going to be a web series.

Now, the web series will be a little different from the animated short. Because the budget is much tighter, they’ll feature a limited cast (only Jason and Kurt at first) and only be a minute or two long. At least one of them will run between 2–3 minutes, because that’s what the second Indiegogo stretch goal was for, but not necessarily the first one. In other words, a little like the thank you video above.

Over time, and with enough funding, we’ll hopefully be able to bring back some of the other cast members from the short, as well. But this is also uncharted territory for me, so I need to start small. This all feels very much like the early days of the comic strip, which is really exciting to me.

You can help support the production of the web series (as well as the production of Multiplex bonus comics for the collected editions) by joining my Patreon, buying stuff from the Multiplex 10 Store, or renting or buying the Multiplex 10 short through Vimeo On Demand!
