Multiplex #115 1/3: Wish You Weren’t Here

This is the first of two bonus comics that follow Multiplex #115 in the Chapter 6 eBook — and the Book 2 print collection, eventually — this time adding a little to the tail end of the Multiplex 10′s New Year’s 2007 party. (The New Year’s arc started here, if you want to refresh your memory of the whole arc.)

I noticed that around this time in the archives, Gretchen had sort of disappeared, so to help her prominence late in Book 2 feel a little more natural when you read it in the collection, I need to give the red-headed she-devil a little more screen time in the earlier chapters.

The next bonus comic will either go up on Wednesday or Thursday this week, depending on how many regular Multiplex updates I can crank out. It will continue from this one, hence the “1/3″ instead of my usual “1/2″ for bonus comics. I’ve got five more bonus comics for Chapter 6 left before I can release the eBook… If you’d like to speed up the process for Chapter 6 and/or Book 2, please make a donation!

Multiplex #108 1/2: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I won’t be posting all of the bonus material from the eBooks/print books here, of course — gotta give you some reason to read the collections — but those of you who subscribe to one of the RSS feeds including the Deleted Scenes content or follow me on Twitter can look forward to occasional bonus comics and progress reports on Book 2 here. This is what Deleted Scenes was meant for!

It’ll be a while longer before Chapter 6 is a finished; there will be about 10 pages of bonus material (either bonus comics or extended strips) in it, and about five pages of bonus stuff in each of the other four chapters in Book 2, or about 30 pages in all. There won’t be a standalone story like Book 1′s Prequel this time around.

Anyway. You shouldn’t need to re-read Multiplex #108 again to follow what’s going on here, but even so, this bonus comic from the upcoming Chapter 6 eBook (and Book 2 print collection) doesn’t really stand on its own for a few reasons — it’ll work better in context, I promise. In this bonus strip, it’s Christmas night (or around there), after work, and the gang has just finished watching the horror remake Black Christmas (as seen in #108), as indicated by the movie poster in the background of panel 1. Devi is back in town from college for the holidays, and Jason is up to his usual thing: complaining. Coincidentally, this strip sort of ties in to what’s going on in the strip now with Jason and horror movies.
