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


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.

“Duet” by Glen Keane

Many of you will recognize Glen Keane as a longtime Disney animator, probably best known for being the designer and animator of Ariel in The Little Mermaid. After 37 or so years with Disney, Keane left in early 2012, eventually joining Motorola’s (later Google’s) Advanced Technology and Projects Group to work on interactive hand-drawn animation.

Keane’s animated short “Duet,” a part of ATAP’s Spotlight Stories, debuted at Google I/O Conference yesterday and is a lovely showcase of everything hand-drawn animation excels at doing. Enjoy! (Sadly, this is only SD, but I’ll see if I can replace it with a higher quality version eventually.)

For more on the Spotlight Stores series, check out their official site.

“The Gunfighter” by Eric Kissack and Kevin Tenglin

This eight minute short features Shawn Parsons as a gunfighter who walks into a saloon, only to be tormented by a sadistic narrator (Nick Offerman). It’s pretty funny stuff, so if you have headphones (there’s language) or aren’t at work, check it out!

Turtle Power (and other things)

I’ve posted these before at Patreon and other sites around the Interwebs, but in honor of Michael Bay and Jonathan Liebesman’s latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer, here they are all together for the first time to use as avatars and profile pics or whatever!

If you’d like to see a favorite character drawn like this, let me know below — and become a Patreon patron at the $3 level or higher to get access to the Activity Stream! I hope to do another one of these soon. Beyond bonus comics, eBooks, drawings like these, you get discounts on stuff from the Multiplex Store, as well (books, commissions, etc.).

I’ve been in a minor financial bind lately, and so I’ve been forced to take on some freelance work when I would rather be updating three times a week for the summer (as I’ve done four out of the last six weeks)! I’ve posted a few bonus comics from Book Three, as well.

If you’d like more Multiplex, too, head over the Patreon today. They recently announced some of their upcoming plans, and I think what they have in store will help me make it an even cooler place for Multiplex fans.
