Multiplex - a comic strip about life at the movies

They PRE-ORDERED Multiplex: There and Back Again (Book Two). What happened next blew their frickin’ minds.

(They got copies of it in the mail.)

Multiplex: There and Back Again final cover


Anyway, yep: it’s time. Surly film snob Jason, his horror buff BFF Kurt, and the rest of the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas return in the second print collection of your favorite movie-themed webcomic, Multiplex. In this volume, we meet the Multiplex 10’s archnemeses, the staff of Flickhead Video, and Jason & Devi’s relationship hits the rocks.

Multiplex: There and Back Again collects strips #103–216 from the archives, plus over 20 bonus comics — and it is now available for PRE-ORDER from the Multiplex Store!

Book Two officially goes on sale on March 15, 2014. Order your copy now to make sure it’s shipped in the week of March 17th!

AND THAT’S NOT ALL. NOPE. The “This Isn’t Your Living Room” workplace poster featuring Jason is also available — also as a pre-order — and shipping alongside Book Two. The 18″x24″ poster is $10, and it is fucking awesome.

First Patreon milestone goal reached! And a word about Book 2!

The first milestone goal in the Patreon project has been reached!

Because funds are collected at the beginning of the month, the leaderboard ad will be disappearing for the month of February… and hopefully for every month thereafter (assuming nobody cancels, of course)! In the meantime, of course, more patrons are welcome. I’m totally excited that we’re raising as many as we are, and I’d be perfectly happy if we don’t raise much more than what we have right now — but would love for the site to be completely ad-free!

In the patrons-only Activity Stream, so far there are a handful of comics that only Book 2 (Kickstarter/PayPal) backers and Patreon patrons can read, with Jason reviewing a handful of movies. There will be more stuff soon, too — sketches, more review comics, and the first Google Hangout!

Thank you VERY MUCH to everybody who has signed on to support the strip so far!

Speaking of Book 2, I understand that the Multiplex: There and Back Again shipment will be arriving sooner than I had expected, and I will get the pre-orders for the book opened up in the next few weeks. I want to get the Kickstarter books and rewards out the door before I can add to my to-do pile, because it has already been so delayed. (Sorry! And thank you again, for your patience!)

Multiplex Workplace Poster series

In honor of Labor Day here in the US of A, I wanted to share with you guys something I’ve been working on. Multiplex Book Two backers and those of you who follow me on Twitter or the Multiplex Facebook page will have seen earlier versions of a few of these, but they’re Multiplex-themed movie theater/workplace posters featuring the main Multiplex cast. I came up with Jason’s poster for one of the Book 2 Kickstarter rewards and liked the idea enough to keep making more.

An 18″x24″ version of Jason’s poster will be available in the coming weeks from the Multiplex Store; they’re being printed this week, so if you want one, stay tuned for that! I’m also planning to make the full set of five posters available as 11″x17″ mini-posters (most likely for $20 for the set). I will need to do a pre-order in order to finance the printing for the set, though, since, y’know, I’m a grad student. We’ll see.

If these sell well, I’ll make more! Feel free to suggest themes for what they could touch on in the comments — though keep in mind, they’re meant to double as half-serious PSA’s, not just be snarky posters.

I’ve got a (late) comic to finish, so without further ado, here are the posters!

I hired a bunch of crappy T-shirt models. (Also, I need more.)

rosebud-ladies_tI decided to get all Busted Tees up in the Multiplex Store’s newly re-opened T-shirt section, so if you’re feeling a little bit bored and want to see some catalog-style drawings of the Multiplex gang (not just the girls), go window shop for shirts.

I tried my best to make the shirts actually look like the real shirts (color-wise, length of sleeves, size of the imprint, etc.), but obviously they’re not going to be spot-on.

In light of that, I would like to get some real product photos of the shirts, so if you order a shirt and e-mail me a photo of yourself wearing it, I’ll give you a $2 coupon code for the Multiplex Store* — whether I can use it or not! (It should be as large as possible, so I can crop it down to an image about 600 pixels square. Half-way decent lighting is kinda important.)

If you already have a Multiplex shirt, yes, it does need to be a NEW order (this week), because I need them to be from the current printer.

This offer stands at least September 13th or I have enough photos, whichever comes later. Limit one coupon per customer.

* With Multiplex: There and Back Again (Book Two) coming out in a few short months, I’m sure you can think of something to use that coupon code on.
