"Max" is actually Maximiliano Cárdenas III — and, no, I didn't make up that name. Max is actually one of the Kickstarter backers, who had arranged for a unique pledge incentive, namely becoming the model for a recurring character in the regular strip. (That mostly means this character was named after him and designed to look like him; otherwise, the character in not based on the real Max in any way. I have the broad strokes of the series planned waaaay out in advance, and what he asked for fit with a character I'd already planned to introduce but hadn't yet designed or named… although I'm sure it doesn't always look like it.)
Since he was a Kickstarter backer, as well, he'll appear in the Multiplex: Book 1 prequel story, where we get a brief glimpse of him as a Multiplex 10 employee, albeit in a costume for the Revenge of the Sith premiere.
With this and Thursday's strip, we're finishing up Chapter 21, and Chapter 22 will start next week. That means we're about 1/5 of the way through Book 5.
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!
