Thank you to everybody who made the Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show release party at Third Coast Comics a great time!
Before Thursday rolls around, the book will be officially on sale, but books are actually already shipping! The last batch of Kickstarter books (and some pre-orders) will be shipping TODAY.
Today and tomorrow, I'll be working on getting all of the Artist's Edition sketches drawn (I will probably share a couple of them with you at the Deleted Scenes blog, since I haven't had time to draw or write anything else in the past week to make it more interesting over there).
I hope to get the promised Black Dynamite review and a review of The Town up over there this week, so keep checking back. Short version of The Town: it's a terrific crime flick. Less heavy or thought-provoking than Gone Baby Gone by far, but smart, funny, and very, very tense in spots, with three great robberies anchoring the film.
Pre-orders for the Michael Bay is the Devil T-shirt are still going! We are about 10 shirts shy of printing up the shirts — so it's moving along, but it's not a sure thing yet. If we don't get them by October 4th, I'll be forced to cancel the orders and refund everybody. And that would make me sad, because I totally want one of these, too.

The Wachowskis are back to make original sci-fi stories with Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean (among others). There are a couple of thematic similarities with The Matrix here (normal person waking up to find out they’re special, for one), but I dunno. It looks pretty?
The film opens July 25, 2014.
Here’s the official description, courtesy Coming Soon:
Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
