Related Strips: #1022: Team Players
There will be three strips this week! (I think this extra update makes me officially caught up from my two week pause earlier in the summer.)
There are nine days left on the Multiplex: The Revenge Kickstarter, with nearly 43% of the goal remaining (as I write this). The first two days were absolutely astonishing, but new pledges have slowed down greatly in the weeks since. At the current rate for new pledges, we will fall short of the funding goal by a few thousand dollars, and the book series won’t be able to continue!
I realize the goal is higher than for Book Two, but with the huge jump in printing costs since Book Two was printed just two years ago, this was unavoidable. The budget is somewhat conservative, too, so it’s possible that I can produce and ship the book (and all the rewards) under budget, and if so, any surplus funds will go toward the production of Book Four, reducing the amount I’ll need to raise for that book. All funds raised by the Kickstarter project will go to the book series.
It’s certainly possible that Multiplex’s following simply isn’t large enough to support a print book series — but I hope this isn’t the case, and I hope that if you haven’t already, you’ll consider helping support the book series, directly (by pledging) or indirectly (telling your friends about the strip and/or the Kickstarter project).
Remember, the print books aren’t just collections of old material: they’re more Multiplex — and Book Three has roughly 35 pages of new comics! The print books mean that I can meet you at comic book conventions (after I finish grad school). And they mean I’ll be able to keep producing more Multiplex even after the webcomic ends.
But wait! There’s more!
Although Multiplex will be ending soon, thanks to readers like you on Patreon, the Multiplex 10 will stay open for business! I’ll be posting bonus comics from future print collections, Multiplex Movie Review strips, updates on the upcoming Multiplex animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.
In addition to the warm, soothing feeling of being a patron of the fine art of comic strippery, Patrons get access to free Multiplex eBooks, sneak previews of upcoming comics and other behind the scenes peeks, sketch giveaways, and more!

A brand spanking new eBook collecting all twenty-nine Multiplex Movie Reviews to date is now available via Gumroad. It’s priced at $1.99 and includes a bunch of strips never posted to the Multiplex site and previously only available to Kickstarter backers and Patreon patrons. Some of them are even funny!
