Notes from the Manager
In real life, apparently the Multiplex 10 would probably get in a little trouble for this, if the NFL found out.
In case you pay even less attention to American football than I do, the Chicago Bears defied everybody's expectations by making it to the NFC Championships — and they're playing against their long-time rivals, the Green Bay Packers.
Look, my old high school chums used to ask me sports trivia and then bet on whether or not I would know the answer, because I pay absolutely no attention to sports. (They called the game "What Does Gordon Know?") And yet I'm getting kind of excited about this game. That means it's a big deal.
And… one last time: for those of you in the Chicago area, I'll see you tomorrow (Saturday, 1/22) at Chicago Comics, because I'll be appearing with Justin Pierce (Wonderella). Check out the flier for it over at Deleted Scenes for the full details.

Now that the Kickstarter project has ended and Multiplex: The Revenge is funded (yay!), I can open up the floor for pre-orders to non-backers via BackerKit. I’m using BackerKit instead of handling things through the Multiplex store (as I did with Book Two), because merging everything and keeping track of essentially two separate crowdfunding projects proved to be a huge headache; BackerKit streamlines that process for me tremendously.
NOT all of the Kickstarter rewards are available, and some are slightly different: i.e. you don’t get your name on the Acknowledgments page of the book, and while you can get vector portraits, I can’t promise that you’ll make it into the third book. (There is only so much room!) Some of the higher level rewards (like original comic strips) are not available, either — although if you have your heart set on one of those, just shoot me an e-mail, and we can probably figure something out.
The current stretch goal is to fund a second printing of Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show (Book One), a necessary step before I can doing a fourth printed book. The amount needed is $7500, with roughly $1,238.97 of Kickstarter’s surplus (the amount over the $24,000 funding goal) applicable toward that. Once this goal is reached, I’ll add Book One as a reward goal for ANY Kickstarter or BackerKit backers (“preorder backer,” as they call them).
I’ll put up a few more visible graphics on the site later — there’s no urgency at this time, so I won’t be bugging you guys about it often. These BackerKit pre-orders will be open for several months and only “lock” in the summer shortly before Book Three goes to press.
