Notes from the Manager
(I cheated and changed last Friday’s title from “Early to Bed, Early to Rise” to just “Early to Bed,” so I could use the “Early to Rise” part here instead.)
Part of Jason’s line in panel 3 is sort of self-indulgently in-jokey with myself. If you read through archives, a lot of the movie news-focused strips deal with movies that have, for better or for worse, never happened. (Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s kaiju flick, for instance.) I find this a little frustrating when I’m reading Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show, for instance, even though I know it’s not that big of a deal. The humor is more about how people talk about movies, not from the fact that they’re talking about these specific movies.
Anyway. Obviously, this is all real news. I know J. J. Abrams has his detractors (including some of you), but I love his directing. The scripts he works on aren’t always so solid, but the writers lined up for Episodes VII through IX are pretty promising. Although they’d have to be pretty spectacular for me to think of them as anything other than fan fiction, I’m curious to see what they come up with for the first time since the news of new Star Wars films broke.
Don’t forget that Multiplex is now on a Monday/Friday schedule, so see you in four days.
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!
