#583: Creatures’ Features

April 25, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #582: Gateway to Horror

The obvious response to this — and don't think Jason wouldn't have brought it up — is that the audience's imagination is scarier than anything Hollywood can throw at you, but that only works to some extent. There's only so much a movie can avoid showing you before it gets ridiculous: you can't shoot around everything. Try imagining a Jaws that absolutely never showed a shark. (Also, bear in mind this strip is specifically talking about creature design, not gore, which doesn't need to be explicit to be effective.)

So, anyway… bit of announcement today. Some of you may have already noticed the link graphic at the top late last week, but in case you didn't: Multiplex is now part of the Blank Label Comics collective, along with Dave Willis's Shortpacked, Kel McDonald of Sorcery 101 and Spike's Templar, Arizona. If you don't already read them, buy their books! (Or, you know, read them online.)

Unrelated note: I kinda want to make Kurt's T-shirt.

Multiplex 10: Good Talk

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Angie, like Franklin, is another significant character from Multiplex who only gets a brief cameo in the pilot episode. So here she is in a Multiplex 10 comic strip.

At nearly $13,250 (as I write this), we’re allllllmost at 90% funding with EIGHT DAYS to go. We need your support to make this pilot happen — and to help distribute it so that we can make more than just one episode! Check out the Multiplex 10 Kickstarter project page today! (Please.)

Also, in case you missed it, there were a couple of new… uh, I’m not sure how to refer to them. “Promo comics,” I guess? The Multiplex 10 versions of Melissa & Becky and Franklin introduce themselves and talk about the animated short and one of the Kickstarter milestones, like the Kurt & Jason one I posted here a while ago. I posted those around the social medias and the separate, Multiplex 10-specific site, which some of you may not know about.
