#651: Mortal Combat, Part Four

My site hosts, Slicehost, went and got themselves bought and essentially shut down by Rackspace, so I've changed changed hosts yet again — this time to a relatively new company called 6sync. I can't give them an unqualified recommendation yet, since I've only used them for three days, but their pricing is fantastic and… so far so good.

We had a few hitches on Friday, neither of which 6sync is to blame for: the issues were partly because I deleted the old host prematurely (oops) and partly because a bot hacked into the site's database and screwed it all up, but I think everything is cleared up now…?

Anyway. I know I complain about the hand-drawn art a lot, so I suppose I should also mention that I'm really happy with the art in today's strip. See? I'm not down on my skillz all the time. (Granted, I retouched the hell out of the inks in Photoshop, but hey, the end result is the point, right?)

The reaction to the current arc has, really truly honestly, been overwhelmingly positive. In fact, it has been uniformly positive, and I've been having a blast doing it, even when I whine about the art not being as good as I see it in my head. Thanks, as always, for reading.

Multiplex_Ch14_eBook cover

Multiplex: Chapter 14 is now available! If you’re a Kickstarter or Patreon backer, you have already been notified about this, but for those of you who aren’t, you can get it from Gumroad superfast, or you can get it from the Multiplex Store. Either way supports the continued creation of Multiplex.

In Multiplex: Chapter 14, Jason reads a book while the Flickhead and Multiplex crews play more video games. This is some heavy shit here, broh! This volume collects strips #287–310 from the Multiplex archives, plus five bonus comics not found online!

I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I hope to continue making new Multiplex comics for these collections at about the same pace as the regular comic (two a week) over at Patreon, and then releasing the eBook collections with this material every 4–6 weeks or so. (And then funding a print collection through Kickstarter after all of the bonus material is finished — rather than funding the creation of that new material with the Kickstarter as I’ve done for the first three books.)

So just because the strip will be finished doesn’t mean Multiplex is going to disappear entirely!
