#1043: Patron of the Arts

July 31, 2015

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #886: The Miner

It's been a while since Franklin's computer game got mentioned. (If we get to the Book Seven or Eight collected editions, I'd like to add a little more about that.) Jump back to #886 (the Related Strip) in case you're fuzzy on how Franklin is able to front Red two grand.

Anyway. Sorry for the late strip, but I promised to get the Bad Boys movie review comic up yesterday and some things came up, so I needed to finish the strip this morning.

GOOD NEWS, though! The Multiplex: The Revenge Kickstarter project passed its funding goal yesterday — meaning it also unlocked the Multiplex movie review comics for all four Michael Bay Transformers movies. I've got to watch those abominations (after Bad Boys II) but the rest of those will get posted over the next two weeks.

The funding period is still open until TONIGHT (Friday, July 31) at 9PM Central, so you can still get in on the last minute!

Thank you so much to everyone who pledged, everyone who shared tweets or Facebook posts or e-mails about the strip or the Kickstarter project, and… (I feel like a broken record every time I say this) thank you for reading.

Multiplex 10: Hyrule Isn’t Going to Save Itself

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

If you’ve seen the rough animatic of the first scene from the animated short (which I posted both on Patreon and in the Kickstarter updates), you know that the episode begins before Jason has started working at the Multiplex 10.

So here’s one difference between the Multiplex 10 “universe” and Multiplex (comic strip) canon; Franklin started at the theater before Jason does. Also, the movie poster frames aren’t red anymore, because their vests are red, that was a really stupid decision, and I should have changed it ten years ago.

I feel bad that Franklin only has a small cameo in the first episode, especially since I already know who I want to voice him (hi, Terrence). Sadly, a lot of things that factor big in the comic won’t turn up in the first eleven minute episode, because it focuses on Kurt and Jason. But hopefully we’ll get to make more.

And even if we can’t, I’ll still want to make some mini-webisode sort of things and maybe a digital comic (e.g. Comixology Submit style)… and, of course, there’s also a tabletop/card game in development. So, like I’ve said, I’m not done with these characters yet.
