Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #590: Freddy vs. Jason
I want to do three updates this week, since I've got the rest of Book 5 mapped out, and it's pretty time-sensitive — but I'm not sure how things are going to go this week with my current freelance gig, and so I'm not sure if I'll have time… To be perfectly frank, I'm not sure I'll be able to get Thursday's strip on time, if I'm working as many hours as I've been over the last few days.
Keep your eyes peeled, I guess? Or, y'know, follow @multiplex10 (or @gmcalpin) on Twitter, "Like" Multiplex on Facebook, or subscribe to the Multiplex RSS feed, or one of the many, many ways to keep up to date with websites in the 21st century.
There is a new T-shirt design available for PRE-ORDER in the Multiplex Store: Rhyme Bandits, which is (obviously) a play on the Time Bandits logo. This was on the short Whitey wore in the last couple of strips, except that I never actually showed the logo. (Someone's head was in the way in #590, and his back was turned in #589.) It just kind of worked out that way.
Anyway, I liked the idea and posted it on Facebook, and a few people suggested I actually make it a shirt, so… if 15 of you pre-order the design, I will print these up on royal blue shirts. If not enough people order, I'll refund everybody's money and be sad. (As always, I highly recommend anyone who wants Ladies shirts, or Men's 2XL or 3XL shirts to pre-order, because I simply don't sell enough of those designs to merit keeping them on-hand. I am, sorry to say, not Topatoco.)
So, since Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides relates to this week's comics, I should ask — did any of you see it? (I was either sleeping, working on the strip, or stuck in an office all weekend, so… I didn't get to.) Was it a fun throwback to the original film, or a tedious, convoluted attempt to capture lightning in a bottle yet another time?

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!
