#775: Early to Rise

January 28, 2013

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.

Come meet me at Wizard World Philadelphia (June 2–4 only)

Saturday, May 20, 2017

Hello! If you’re in the area, come meet me at Wizard World Philadelphia with Phil Kahn of Guilded Age. We’ll be at Booth 1702. NOTE: I will only be there from June 2–4. No Thursday preview for me.

(Here’s a floor plan for your planning pleasure.)

If you use the coupon code GUILDED, you can get 20% off your advanced ticket orders.

I will have copies of the brand-spankin’-new, not-even-officially-released Multiplex: The Revenge (Book Three) in tow, draw sketches (for monies), and if my iPad has any juice in it, I’ll show you some behind the scenes stuff from the Multiplex 10 short, too.
