Welcome to the Multiplex 10 Cinemas!
Multiplex is an online comic about a low-brow movie buff Kurt and a high-brow film snob Jason, who wage a never-ending battle against the terrible movies and even worse customers infesting their movie theater.
Multiplex is a sitcom-style romp jam-packed with movie jokes, real-world movie commentary, and healthy doses of stupid humor and teen drama.
The Multiplex: Chapter 1 eBook collects strips #1–24 from the Multiplex archives, plus two guest strips (by Gordon), seven bonus comics not found in the archives, and four character bios!
CHAPTER 1 IS FREE (PDF, 22.6mb)
You can also buy Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show (Book 1), with Chapters 1–5 in one 224-page paperback volume, along with an exclusive 12-page Prequel story and more!
Praise for Multiplex and Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show
Multiplex perfectly portrays the real foibles and friendships of a lousy job with a couple of perks. Also, it looks round and colorful and sweet, like delicious candy. I recommend reading Multiplex over getting an actual job.

[Multiplex tells the story of] a group of young twenty-somethings, on the front lines of the movies we love (and love to hate)… Think Clerks in a movie theatre.
— Chris Arrant, Newsarama
Thoroughly entertaining… If you don’t recognize you or your friends in any of these characters, you aren’t looking very hard.

(McAlpin) is a master of pushing the story forward without using words.
— Chicago Tribune
The best parts of continuing storyline and daily gag comics. McAlpin’s drawing style is brilliant…
— M.C. Shumaker, Fandomania
Wonderful… An engaging character ensemble with just
the right blend of way too much pop culture.
