Multiplex Movie Review milestone goal: Jason reviews every Harry Potter movie

In case you missed it… in order to — fingers crossed — hit the Multiplex 10: the animated short’s base goal sooner rather than later, if we can reach $15,000 on or before Wednesday, April 26 (according to Eastern Daylight Time), I’ll write and draw Multiplex Movie Review comics for all eight of the Harry Potter movies. And if we do it on or before Monday, April 24, I’ll throw in Fantastic Beasts, as well.

These strips will be different than previous review comics, though: Jason will review them at the age he was when each movie was released. So the first ones will be set before the comic strip began, and we’ll get a glimpse of his life before the Multiplex 10, then see him get older with each new movie along with the characters in the movies, etc.

Multiplex Movie Review: Primer (2004)

Hello! Miss me? I’ll be posting Multiplex Movie Review comics here occasionally for the near future, so don’t forget to come back by or cyberstalk me on one of the umpty-million places you can do that.

The Multiplex 10 Kickstarter project has passed $10,500 (as of this writing) in its first week thanks to over 300 backers. There’s plenty of time left, and that’s nearly 70% of the goal — so things are looking good. But the sooner the project passes its goal, the better chance it has at getting pledges from people who aren’t as familiar with Multiplex and my work as you guys are.

Thanks once again for all your support — especially to my Patreon backers — and for all the heartfelt messages over the last week.

p.s. Primer is on Netflix.

UPDATE: By popular demand, Jason’s T-shirt (or a slightly tweaked, more accurate version of it) is now in the Multiplex Store. Also available in women’s sizes.

Work on Book Three has begun.

Work on Multiplex: The Revenge (Book Three) has begun, with a handful of the bonus comics from Chapters 12 and 13 being posted earlier this week, as well as some behind the scenes stuff that won’t be.

If you didn’t have the chance to support the Kickstarter, remember you can always help support the book by pre-ordering a copy via BackerKit — or if you’d like to read the bonus comics as they’re produced, become a Patreon patron! We’ve just recently dipped below the $600/month threshold for removing the ads completely, and I’d really rather not start running ads again. Ads are the devil!

Patreon patrons have also gotten a sneak peak at some new designs for old faces that will see the light of day eventually… (How’s that for mysterious?)

Here’s the first panel from the longer bonus storyline I’ll be drawing in the near future. I really liked how this turned out; I should really suck it up and do more exterior shots.

Multiplex Movie Review comics MILESTONE GOALS

In case you missed it, I shared a short PDF eBook with eight Multiplex Movie Review comics on Patreon and elsewhere (publicly/free/etc.) Some of those comics might be new to you. But that got me thinking… which is never a good thing…

We are in the last few days of the Multiplex: The Revenge Kickstarter project! Thanks to a veritable onslaught of pledges (and pledge increases!) yesterday, things are looking less grim than yesterday: we’ve just passed 80% of the funding goal! This means there is less than $5000 to raise — but only three and a half days to do it in.

SO. Let’s do this. I’ve set three milestones, at $2,000 increments, to get us to the funding goal with a little time to spare. If we pass each of them (any time before MIDNIGHT), I’ll do the following Multiplex Movie Review comics — one page per movie — and share them right here in the Deleted Scenes blog… you know, after I watch the movie and make the comic. (In case you’re curious, of the movies here, I’ve only ever seen the first three Transformers movies.)

The first one’s easy, too, since we’re (currently) at $19,250…

UPDATE (July 28 at 6:45pm): The Rock is UNLOCKED!
