Just a quick note to mention that two backers' books seemed to go MIA after I dropped them off at the USPS last month. If you have NOT received your books or other rewards by now, something has likely gone wrong, and please e-mail me!


Update #85

AND WE’RE DONE (more or less). Now, about Book Three…

I've just sent off the last of the posters, sketches, and prints. I have a couple of rewards left to do, but I don't think the rest of you need updates on that stuff, since it's between me and three backers. 

Thank you very, very, very, very much for your generosity and patience with this project. I wish it hadn't taken so much longer than it was planned to, but I'm incredibly happy with the book — and I hope you are (or will be), too.

So, this is going to be the last update for the Book Two Kickstarter, barring any major snafus.

IF YOU HAVEN'T RECEIVED YOUR BOOKS, SKETCHES, POSTERS OR PRINTS WITHIN TWO WEEKS (a bit longer for international backers — you know, because of customs), then something has probably gone awry with me or the Post Office, and so please please please do not hesitate to ask me about it. I've already heard about (and replaced) a book getting sent to the wrong backer. So… hopefully that is the only one, but more mistakes may have been made, and I will fix them.

A few of you have already asked about Multiplex: Book Three. In order to hopefully prevent the production of Book Three taking a year longer than planned, I hope to fund the production of the new material (and eBooks) for Book Three a different way — via Patreon.

Patreon (if you haven't already heard about it) is like Kickstarter, but it's for an ongoing project — in this case, the production of the comic strip. What I'm hoping to do is get all of the bonus material for Book Three finished, then launch a much smaller Kickstarter for just the costs directly related to the printing and fulfillment of the book and the rewards.

If you enjoyed the Kickstarter updates, you'll get very much the same thing through the Patreon Activity Stream: sketches, behind-the-scenes stuff, and other random things.

If you like the Chapter eBooks, you'll get one about every month through Patreon (pre-release Chapter eBooks without the bonus comics, because they don't exist yet, but featuring the same kind of commentary and high res art as the official releases). Two of them are already out!

If you liked the Multiplex Movie Review comics, I plan to do more for Patreon backers.
