Notes from the Manager
Also, if you're not familiar with The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, it's a new picture from Julian Schnabel (Basquiat, Before Night Falls). Being about a man who becomes completely paralyzed except for his left eye, it's a story that could easily have fallen into emotional torture porn territory if Diving Bell weren't so wonderfully shot, with a superb cast and accompanied by a terrific soundtrack. I have some quibbles with a couple of unnecessary liberties the script from the true story it's based upon, but they don't undermine the heart of the movie. It's still in limited release, so it may not be near many of you, but you'll be hearing about this film again come Oscar time.
UPDATE (1/1/08): Happy New Year! So this time, I'm going to try an Honor System Vote Incentive. That means, you don't have to vote at BuzzComix or TopWebComics, but it would sure be nice if you did. Those places have the same incentives as before. A new strip can be seen here, at my Flickr page. This strip takes place between Multiplex #s 23 and 24 (November, 2005) and features everybody's favorites, Jason and Becky, talking about Jane Austen's various film adaptations. Joy.
But wait! There’s more!
Although Multiplex will be ending soon, 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 animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.
In addition to the warm, soothing feeling of being a patron of the fine art of comic strippery, Patrons get access to free Multiplex eBooks, sneak previews of upcoming comics and other behind the scenes peeks, sketch giveaways, and more!

A brand spanking new eBook collecting all twenty-nine Multiplex Movie Reviews to date is now available via Gumroad. It’s priced at $1.99 and includes a bunch of strips never posted to the Multiplex site and previously only available to Kickstarter backers and Patreon patrons. Some of them are even funny!
