#1042: You’re in Good Hands

Kurt and Franklin are, of course, referring to events from waaaay back in Chapter 15 in the final panels here — events that will be expanded upon slightly in any collected editions of the story that might be in the works…

Speaking of which. There are just 69 hours left the Multiplex: The Revenge PBS telethon I mean Kickstarter project… The funding period ends on Friday at 9PM Central!

Since Monday, the Kickstarter project has really rallied, and we’re $3,520 away from the goal! That’s within arm’s reach. In fact, that's roughly how much we’ve raised in the last 48 hours. But it could still go either way: a huge amount of the pledged funds in the last two days has been due to existing backers increasing their pledges, which is awesome of them — but it is not sustainable growth, either. If you haven’t already, please consider backing the project!

In case you missed any of this: in the last few days, I’ve added your choice of pencils or inks from hand-drawn comics to many of the higher level reward packs… I’ve released the first chapter from Multiplex: The Revenge (Book Three) for FREE to give everyone a taste of what the books will be like… and I've added new milestone goals in which I'll make new Multiplex movie review comics featuring Jason's reviews of the finest films from Michael Bay’s oeuvre — the first of which we've already met! That means Jason will be reviewing The Rock in the near future. Unlocked and posted!

If we reach $22,000 by TONIGHT/WEDNESDAY (July 29) at midnight, I will watch Bad Boys I and II (and create a review comic for each of them) — and we're already just about 1/4 of the way there! Unlocked, and the first one is posted!

If we reach $24,000 by THURSDAY (July 30) at midnight, I will watch all four Bayformers movies and do a movie review strip for each movie! Or maybe one four-page movie review. It'll be four pages, anyway. (I’ve seen 1–3 before, but I will rewatch them, because I am an ethical movie reviewer. Even when I'm writing fictional movie reviews.) Unlocked!

See you Friday!

But wait! There’s more!

Although Multiplex has ended, 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 10 animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.

In addition to the warm, soothing feeling of being a patron of the arts, Patreon supporters get access to free Multiplex eBooks, sneak previews of upcoming comics and other behind the scenes peeks, sketch giveaways, and more!

Say hello to Kurt and Jason

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Hello! The Multiplex 10 Kickstarter project ends in just over 14 days. As of this writing, we are a little north of $12,000, so just over 80% of our base goal. Judging from my last two Kickstarters, we’re doing very well. The final week should pick up considerably over this past week.

BUT don’t forget that we still have a milestone goal of Jason reviewing every Harry Potter movie if we make that $15,000 baseline goal on/before Wednesday, April 26th, though! (Plus Fantastic Beasts if we make it on/before Monday, April 24th. But that seems kind of unlikely at this point.) I thought that was a fun premise… but it’s up to the Gods of Kickstarter now.

I also officially added our first (and, at this point, only) STRETCH GOAL. At $20,000, we’ll be able to do a few extra things:

  • Smoother, 4K animation
  • 5.1 Surround Sound mix (courtesy sound designer Ian Vargo)
  • AND… a theatrical premiere at the Somerville Theatre here in Somerville, MA. (All backers at the Special Thanks level and up will get free admission… and, of course, transportation is not provided.)

Thanks so much for all your support. I’m exciting at how the Kickstarter project is coming together, and I can’t wait to get started on the animated short. (Full time, I mean. I’m already working on it!)

Pledge your support today! If you haven’t already!
