Multiplex - a comic strip about life at the movies

I’ve been drawing Turtles, I guess. Here’s Leonardo.


Because of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer and working on #900 over the last week, I decided to draw Donatello (because he’s the best) for the Patreon backers’ Activity Stream… and then I drew Raphael (because he’s cool but rude)… and by that point I figured I should probably draw all of them, so Michelangelo went up there last night, and here’s Leonardo for everybody to see.

I’m not sure if I’ll draw more characters from the Turtleverse (maybe if enough people ask nicely), but I’ll definitely draw more stuff and share them with you guys either here or there. Feel free to use this as a social media avatar or anything else non-commercial. (I’m using Donatello as my own Twitter avatar lately!)

“Inside the greatest sci-fi film never made” by Bryan Bishop

The Verge’s Bryan Bishop has posted a terrific interview with Frank Pavich about Alejandro Jodorowsky’s unproduced Dune. The interest in this project since Pavich’s documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune popped up has been awesome. I, for one, am dying for a giant, coffee table book loaded with pictures. (Not that one has been announced, but… hopefully someone will get the idea.)

Feast your eyes on this lovely piece by Chris Foss, and click through to the article at The Verge for the many, many more pictures:


Trailer Watch: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles official trailer

Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters on August 8, 2014.

I kind of like the Turtle designs… although I seem to be in the minority there. Speaking of minorities, though, William Fichtner is Shredder. What.

P.S. Don’t forget that I sell TMNT-style Michael Bay is the Devil T-shirts!

(Check out their History of Cutting and The History of Hollywood Censorship and the Ratings System at their website.) The latest is a history of the movie trailer, which I’ve embedded below:
