Notes from the Manager
You didn't miss Friday's bonus update, did you? Because there was a bonus update on Friday.
UPDATE: Multiplex Version 3.0 has launched. And you're looking at it.
Hopefully you like the changes. Please poke around, or just look at the Site Map to see what's new. Please let me know if you see any broken links or whatever!
The biggest changes that affect YOU are (1) the new Chapter/Book divisions in the archives, and (2) the bigger strips.
The Chapters, of course, correspond to the eBooks and the chapters from the upcoming print collection (and books 2, 3, and 4, as well — we're nearing the end of Book 4 at this point).
Online Editions of the eBooks are highlighted where those exist.
The new strips are now 700px wide (they were 600px before). I've also increased the size of all the strips in Book 4 (#339 to now) to 700px wide, so feel free to go back and see what tiny details you missed the first time around! ;)
Additionally, the Cast page and Guest Strips section have been reorganized, and I've added both a Fan Art section and an "Other Comics by Gordon" section for stuff I've done that doesn't really belong anywhere. (Non-Multiplex or Stripped Books stuff.)
UPDATE: It looks like we have a few issues with IE6 and IE7 to work out. Of course, if you use either of those, you could also just upgrade to a modern browser.
UPDATE: The IE6/7 issues should be mostly fixed. You won't be getting quite the same, polished experience every other internet surfer gets, but… well, you know, upgrade that browser. :)
Thursday's strip will be late! Now is as good a time to point out that there is now a "Twitter Is Stupid" thingy in the left sidebar. I will mention minor things like strips being late over there (and not so much here) in the future — not that I am late with the strip very often! Because I am not! So no grief will be taken from you, thank you very much!
Anyway, so, you know, if I'm supposed to have a strip up but don't (before like 8AM), looky at mah Twittaz.
Multiplex News & Updates
Bonus comics, drawings, and
other awesome stuff
Friday, January 5, 2018
Thanks to 130 backers at the Indiegogo Second Chance campaign, we’ve raised a healthy budget for the Multiplex 10 animated short’s release, film festival submission fees, and other promotional expenses — including all-new animated videos featuring some of the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. In other words: Multiplex 10 is going to be a web series.
Now, the web series will be a little different from the animated short. Because the budget is much tighter, they’ll feature a limited cast (only Jason and Kurt at first) and only be a minute or two long. At least one of them will run between 2–3 minutes, because that’s what the second Indiegogo stretch goal was for, but not necessarily the first one. In other words, a little like the thank you video above.
Over time, and with enough funding, we’ll hopefully be able to bring back some of the other cast members from the short, as well. But this is also uncharted territory for me, so I need to start small. This all feels very much like the early days of the comic strip, which is really exciting to me.
You can help support the production of the web series (as well as the production of Multiplex bonus comics for the collected editions) by joining my Patreon, buying stuff from the Multiplex 10 Store, or renting or buying the Multiplex 10 short through Vimeo On Demand!
