Multiplex - a comic strip about life at the movies
DELETED SCENES


Somerville Theatre Midnight Specials film series

Patreon backers got an early look at this, but one of the freelance projects I’ve done recently is movie-themed, and I wanted to share it with you. It’s a poster for the Somerville Theatre’s upcoming Midnight Specials film series. (In Somerville, Mass.)

So if you’re in that area, definitely check out this film series starting later this month. And if you’re not, just dig on this poster I made for them. It was a hell of a lot of fun to do:

FEI-Theatres-Film-Series-final

If you’d like to buy one of these, the theater — not me — is planning to sell 11″x17″ posters for $14 and 24″x36″ posters for $30. (These are short, custom print runs, hence the premium cost.) Postage is included (for those of you hailing from the United States). Contact Ian Judge of FEI Theatres (ijudge at feitheatres.com) for more information!

And if you’re a theater manager interested in commissioning something like this for your theater, definitely shoot me an e-mail! (The “Contact Gordon” link in the footer is your friend.)

Trailer Watch: Studio Ghibli’s When Marnie Was There teaser trailer


A teaser trailer of Studio Ghibli’s adaptation of Joan G. Robinson’s When Marnie Was There directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (Arrietty). It’s from Japanese TV, so there’s all kinds of graphics all over the screen, but hopefully a cleaner version will find its way online soon.

The song, by the way, is “Fine on the Outside,” sung by Priscilla Ahn.

Trailer Watch: Bill Murray in St. Vincent

Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd, and Naomi Watts star in writer-director Ted Melfi’s St. Vincent, about a grumpy old man (Murray) who befriends the neighbor kid. There are a lot of familiar tropes in this story, but the dialogue and the cast seem solid enough to get past that. (Or at least it earned a few laughs from me.)

St. Vincent opens on October 24, 2014.

Multiplex is now in Comic Chameleon!

So… big news today: you can now read Multiplex in the super popular Comic Chameleon webcomic reader for iOS. If you already use the app, check it out! If you don’t, well, you probably don’t care, because with just about every single great webcomic in existence included in their app, how could you possibly need another reason to check it out? Girls with Slingshots, Dumbing of Age, Questionable Content, HijiNKS ENSUE, Wasted Talent and many, many more are all right there at your fingertips. (Even Oglaf, for you perverts with dirty dirty fingertips!)

What does this mean for Multiplex for iPhone and iPod touch? Nothing. Jelly and I hope to add some new features to it soon (likely after iOS 8 is released). I enjoy Comic Chameleon, and I use it to read loads of my favorite webcomics, myself. But it’s not an either/or thing. There are several differences between the two apps:

Comic Chameleon has a cool panel viewing mode that makes reading really nice on smaller screens and loads of other great webcomics right in the same app. But — the Multiplex app is ad-free, has the Notes from the Manager posts, Related Strips, and the Cast pages. (There’s no way to include them. in Comic Chameleon.)

Also, only Book Seven (strips #771 and forward) are available in Comic Chameleon right now, but if people seem to like reading it in their app, I’ll find time to put more of the strips into their system. Marking all the panels up for their panel viewing mode gets time consuming when you have hundreds of comics in your archive.

Frankly, my hope for including Multiplex in Comic Chameleon is that new readers will discover the strip through their app and continue to read the comic whichever way they like most: in Comic Chameleon, on the website, in the Multiplex app… I don’t really care how people read Multiplex so long as they enjoy it. (And if I get any significant amount of ad revenue from Comic Chameleon, sweet!)

For Android users, this doesn’t change anything — for now. Sorry. Comic Chameleon has plans for an Android version in the works, but nothing firm yet.
