#357: Eye of the Beholder

May 17, 2009

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #88: Back to Business; #241: Nevermind; #318: Unbelievably Enough; #346: You Wouldn’t Steal a Purse…

Lydia and her co-workers have all previously appeared in the strips linked to above, in the "Related Strips."

I can't take credit for the name "Dye Another Day," which was the brainchild of my friend Cori Ann McHembree and keeps with the movie theme all the stores in the Multiplex 10's shopping center have (for no particularly good reason, honestly).

It is, in theory, located in the storefront between Flickhead Video and the Multiplex 10.

The Music Box Theatre is a real Chicago moviehouse that shows foreign and indie films, and it is indeed currently running Godard's Vivre Sa Vie (I saw it yesterday). Here is its trailer (which shows waaaay too much, I should warn you):

UPDATE (5/21): #358 is running late, but there is a short, self-contained preview/mini-strip over in the forum.

But wait! There’s more!

Although Multiplex has ended, 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 10 animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.

In addition to the warm, soothing feeling of being a patron of the arts, Patreon supporters get access to free Multiplex eBooks, sneak previews of upcoming comics and other behind the scenes peeks, sketch giveaways, and more!

Say hello to Kurt and Jason

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Hello! The Multiplex 10 Kickstarter project ends in just over 14 days. As of this writing, we are a little north of $12,000, so just over 80% of our base goal. Judging from my last two Kickstarters, we’re doing very well. The final week should pick up considerably over this past week.

BUT don’t forget that we still have a milestone goal of Jason reviewing every Harry Potter movie if we make that $15,000 baseline goal on/before Wednesday, April 26th, though! (Plus Fantastic Beasts if we make it on/before Monday, April 24th. But that seems kind of unlikely at this point.) I thought that was a fun premise… but it’s up to the Gods of Kickstarter now.

I also officially added our first (and, at this point, only) STRETCH GOAL. At $20,000, we’ll be able to do a few extra things:

  • Smoother, 4K animation
  • 5.1 Surround Sound mix (courtesy sound designer Ian Vargo)
  • AND… a theatrical premiere at the Somerville Theatre here in Somerville, MA. (All backers at the Special Thanks level and up will get free admission… and, of course, transportation is not provided.)

Thanks so much for all your support. I’m exciting at how the Kickstarter project is coming together, and I can’t wait to get started on the animated short. (Full time, I mean. I’m already working on it!)

Pledge your support today! If you haven’t already!
