Notes from the Manager
(I borrowed this strip's title from some ridiculous-looking romance that came out last year, by the way. It's not a typo.)
If you don't already have a copy of the Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show (Book 1) print collection, it is now listed in the June PREVIEWS catalog (page 258). It's a Diamond Comics Staff Pick, in fact! Ask your local comics shop to get you a copy sometime this month, and save yourself the shipping. If they have a Diamond account (and if they're a comic book store, chances are they do), that can get it for you.
While you're at it, tell 'em how much you love Multiplex, so they order a few extra copies. :)
I hope you enjoyed the three strips this week — or five, if you count the two bonus comics from Chapter 6 that posted over at Deleted Scenes. I'm in a race to get to finish Book 5 before July 10th (the sixth anniversary of Multiplex), so I'll keep the updates coming as fast as I can. If you'd like to help me do that (and in the process help Book 2 come sooner, rather than later), please feel free make a donation or buy something from the Multiplex Store!
See you next week!
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!
