#102: Cool Runnings

November 20, 2006

Notes from the Manager

Okay, so if you're not at all familiar with the new Bond movie, you might not get that what Jason and Kurt are doing is freerunning through the theater. The first action sequence in Casino Royale is an exhilirating chase between freerunner Sebastien Foucan and Bond (Daniel Craig). Check out the trailers for a few glimpses. For that matter, the whole movie is terrific, if a little tiny bit slow near the end, where the filmmakers needed to shoehorn a semi-believable bit of romance in too little time and came up a bit long. (It was a double-edged sword; I'm just saying.) Anyway. Loved the movie, particularly Daniel Craig's "stone cold killer" take on Bond (to quote my friend Pete), which bodes well for the future of the franchise.

The trailer for Zodiac, which preceded my Bond screening, was also pretty stunning. It looks like it's got a hell of a lot stronger story than David Fincher's last effort, the slick, glorified B-movie Panic Room. I am hyped.

Multiplex: Chapter 14 is now available!

Multiplex_Ch14_eBook cover

Multiplex: Chapter 14 is now available! If you’re a Kickstarter or Patreon backer, you have already been notified about this, but for those of you who aren’t, you can get it from Gumroad superfast, or you can get it from the Multiplex Store. Either way supports the continued creation of Multiplex.

In Multiplex: Chapter 14, Jason reads a book while the Flickhead and Multiplex crews play more video games. This is some heavy shit here, broh! This volume collects strips #287–310 from the Multiplex archives, plus five bonus comics not found online!

I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I hope to continue making new Multiplex comics for these collections at about the same pace as the regular comic (two a week) over at Patreon, and then releasing the eBook collections with this material every 4–6 weeks or so. (And then funding a print collection through Kickstarter after all of the bonus material is finished — rather than funding the creation of that new material with the Kickstarter as I’ve done for the first three books.)

So just because the strip will be finished doesn’t mean Multiplex is going to disappear entirely!
