Notes from the Manager
Those of you in my hometown of Peoria, Illinois, or thereabouts — I will be on the Greg and Dan Show on WMBD 1470 AM this Friday, bright and early at 8:00am or something like that. (I find it amusing that their show is followed by Glen Beck.) It should be up as a podcast at a later date, so I'll try to link it up for the rest of you.
I'll also be at Peoria's Acme Books and Comics this Saturday , signing (and selling) books from 12pm to 3pm, as well. Acme is located at 2218 W. Glen Ave., Peoria, IL, and just-so-happens to be the comics shop that I got my books from since it opened.
In fact, the owner, Bob Gordon, is the guy I bought books from since I first started reading comics — I was the annoying kid who hung out at the comics shop way too much after school and sorted the back issue bins in exchange for store credit many a time. Bob and the friendly guys at Acme basically began my comics education — nudging me towards books like Sandman and such at an earlier age than any responsible adult should have, and it's pretty safe to say that if it wasn't for Acme, I wouldn't be making the kind of comics I do now. They're the best guys in the world.
So, going there to sign copies of my own comic book is kind of an extra-awesome thing for me. It kind of makes up for the fact that I'm going to be in Peoria all weekend.

We’ve just hit the second milestone goal ($600)!
What this means is, once my patrons’ accounts are charged next (around the first of next month), MULTIPLEX WILL BE COMPLETELY READER-SUPPORTED AND DEVOID OF THOSE ANNOYING THIRD PARTY ADS. Thank you so incredibly much to all of the Patreon backers and anyone else who spread the word about the project (or Multiplex, really)!
Once I can roll out the reworked site, strip images will be significantly larger (most likely 900px wide), yet the website should still load a bit faster. My programmer Jelly and I are looking at making the site both responsive and retina-friendly at the same time, but those may take a while longer… so no promises for those just yet.
I would just yank the ads now, because I hate them, except that would screw up the site layout. Removing them is not quite as simple as it might seem, I’m afraid, and will involve a bit of a redesign, as I mention in the Milestone Goals sidebar over at Patreon.
When we reach the NEXT milestone goal ($1000): I will post (at least) four Multiplex Movie Reviews or other bonus comics per month here for patrons! So it will be allllmost like three strips per week.
