#583: Creatures’ Features

April 25, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #582: Gateway to Horror

The obvious response to this — and don't think Jason wouldn't have brought it up — is that the audience's imagination is scarier than anything Hollywood can throw at you, but that only works to some extent. There's only so much a movie can avoid showing you before it gets ridiculous: you can't shoot around everything. Try imagining a Jaws that absolutely never showed a shark. (Also, bear in mind this strip is specifically talking about creature design, not gore, which doesn't need to be explicit to be effective.)

So, anyway… bit of announcement today. Some of you may have already noticed the link graphic at the top late last week, but in case you didn't: Multiplex is now part of the Blank Label Comics collective, along with Dave Willis's Shortpacked, Kel McDonald of Sorcery 101 and Spike's Templar, Arizona. If you don't already read them, buy their books! (Or, you know, read them online.)

Unrelated note: I kinda want to make Kurt's T-shirt.

The Multiplex: The Revenge Kickstarter ends at 9PM Central!

Friday, July 31, 2015

Just like the headline says, the Multiplex: The Revenge Kickstarter project ends TODAY (Friday, July 31) at 9PM Central!

It has successfully passed the goal, so I do not need any additional funds to finish, print, and fulfill Book Three— but any additional funds raised will go toward the production and marketing of the book series: the creation of the bonus strips for Book Four (after Book Three is completed) or a second printing for Book One, for example.

While I will be setting up a BackerKit pre-order page to allow for “pre-order backers” (as BackerKit calls them) to order a selection of the physical rewards, many of the higher level Kickstarter rewards involve background appearances in the book and I need to lock down who those people are in order to get to work on the book. Therefore, those higher level reward packs are exclusively available to Kickstarter backers. Lock them down while you can!
