#515: Up and At ’Em

Notes from the Manager

Bleeding Cool ran a brief (three-question) interview with me on Friday, in case you missed it. It's actually the second time Dale Lazarov put me through his All Is Full of Linky Love interview stylings (the first time being when it ran at Talk About Comics a long time ago), but like I told him, if he asked me the same questions in another year, they'd be different answers.

I need just TWO pre-orders for the Michael Bay is the Devil T-shirt before I can print those puppies up. They're $17.99 now, but they'll be going up to $19.99 after the pre-order (I based the original $17.99 pricing on an rough guess, but had to revise the finished price after getting a quote; it's a four-color design, don't forget). If you're a lady or a plus-sized (XXL and up) dude, it's a very good idea to pre-order, because I can't seem to get rid of them in the other shirt designs, so the odds of me ordering those sizes is slim!

EDIT: I just got those last two, so the Michael Bay shirt is GO. Get your orders in now at the pre-order pricing, though. The price will go up to $19.99 on October 4th — and I won't be ordering many extra Men's XXL and up or Ladies sizes.

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.

* Speaking of Kickstarter projects, there will be an announcement about Multiplex: Book Three… very soon.
