Notes from the Manager
For those of you who don’t pay attention to the Deleted Scenes blog (i.e. those of you who read using the Multiplex app for iPhone and iPod touch), thanks to the Patreon backers passing the $600/month Milestone Goal, the Multiplex website is now completely ad-free and reader supported.
That means I can fill up the full width of the site with the comic, and I’ve made all of Chapter 34 to date 900px wide. That’s 25% bigger! Since the iOS app uses the same images, this means the strip images in the app are 25% bigger, too. So if you love the Multiplex app, consider tossing us a few bucks a month via Patreon. (The $99/year iOS Developer Program fee keeps it in the App Store, and it’s one of the many costs of doing Multiplex.)
My programmer (Daniel Farrelly) and I are working on more improvements to the website — including a new, responsive layout (that will look more or less like this one, but… bigger) and retina-friendly graphics. Stay tuned for news about that!

With four days and 30% of the funding goal for Multiplex: The Revenge remaining, things are looking a little bleak. In hindsight, there are some changes that I could have made to keep the budget (and the funding goal) down. I detail a bit of that in this post over on the Kickstarter project site, so I won’t go into it again.
I can’t change the funding goal now, though, but what I can do is add to the project to make up for that. (Again, visit the Kickstarter page for details.) And so one of the things I want to do is to share Multiplex: Chapter 11 with you — FREE — in order to give you a taste of what the whole book will be like… you know, with the obvious hope that some of you who haven’t already will consider backing the project.
I’ve also made Chapter 6 (the first one from Book Two) free, as well, because it’d be weird to have Chapter 1 and Chapter 11 free but not Chapter 6, too. (I learned that “first one’s free” thing from drug dealers in movies.)
