#401: Diarrhea of the Dead, Part Two

October 7, 2009

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #195: Oh My God; #400: Diarrhea of the Dead, Part One

So you guys must really want those Mutliplex: Chapter 1 comics (and/or the print collection), because the Multiplex Kickstarter project is over $500 over the goal I'd set for tonight at midnight (and counting)!

It's not to late to get in on the action, though: if you pledge ANY amount today (Wednesday — and I'm going by Central Time), you'll be eligible to win one of five copies of the Chapter 1 print comic. (Note that these aren't yet printed, so they won't get shipped out for a while. They will eventually be available in the Multiplex Store, as well.)

Keep those pledges coming! I'll cook up another special reward/incentive random drawing soon, and (if you don't win now) you will be eligible for the next drawing!

Please don't feel like I'm asking for donations, here! I'm trying to make this more than worth your pledge: with bonus strips, the free copy of the Chapter 1 HD edition (and Chapter 2, when it's out) and $2 off any of the T-shirts in the Multiplex Store. The book will almost definitely have a cover price of $25 (judging from the quotes I'm getting back from printers so far), and you're getting free shipping anywhere in the US or Canada, too. With such ridiculously low interest rates these days, that's a bigger return on your investment than any bank is offering now, believe me!

There is one more update left this week! See you on Friday!

Multiplex 10: the web series is coming!

Friday, January 5, 2018

Thanks to 130 backers at the Indiegogo Second Chance campaign, we’ve raised a healthy budget for the Multiplex 10 animated short’s release, film festival submission fees, and other promotional expenses — including all-new animated videos featuring some of the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. In other words: Multiplex 10 is going to be a web series.

Now, the web series will be a little different from the animated short. Because the budget is much tighter, they’ll feature a limited cast (only Jason and Kurt at first) and only be a minute or two long. At least one of them will run between 2–3 minutes, because that’s what the second Indiegogo stretch goal was for, but not necessarily the first one. In other words, a little like the thank you video above.

Over time, and with enough funding, we’ll hopefully be able to bring back some of the other cast members from the short, as well. But this is also uncharted territory for me, so I need to start small. This all feels very much like the early days of the comic strip, which is really exciting to me.

You can help support the production of the web series (as well as the production of Multiplex bonus comics for the collected editions) by joining my Patreon, buying stuff from the Multiplex 10 Store, or renting or buying the Multiplex 10 short through Vimeo On Demand!
