Notes from the Manager
Aaaand... #150! And so ends my months-long, mad scramble to hit #150 in the same week as the two-year anniversary... Multiplex historians will note that this is the first strip set entirely away from the theater. It won't happen too often -- it's called "Multiplex," after all. Thanks (once again) for reading, everybody. See you Monday.
Oh, and for the record, yes, the title of this strip is from the song by Player, which was most recently used rather well in the mostly-shitty Transformers movie. (Listen to the latest Triple Feature for more of my thoughts -- and Tom Brazelton's -- on the film. Joe Dunn, who gave his opinion last week, immediately after seeing a sneak preview of the film, also chimed in with his thoughts, one week later. Plus, we spent a few minutes talking about Multiplex, the two-year anniversary, and how I apparently manage to successfully keep things fresh in the series after 150 installments...)

We’ve just hit the second milestone goal ($600)!
What this means is, once my patrons’ accounts are charged next (around the first of next month), MULTIPLEX WILL BE COMPLETELY READER-SUPPORTED AND DEVOID OF THOSE ANNOYING THIRD PARTY ADS. Thank you so incredibly much to all of the Patreon backers and anyone else who spread the word about the project (or Multiplex, really)!
Once I can roll out the reworked site, strip images will be significantly larger (most likely 900px wide), yet the website should still load a bit faster. My programmer Jelly and I are looking at making the site both responsive and retina-friendly at the same time, but those may take a while longer… so no promises for those just yet.
I would just yank the ads now, because I hate them, except that would screw up the site layout. Removing them is not quite as simple as it might seem, I’m afraid, and will involve a bit of a redesign, as I mention in the Milestone Goals sidebar over at Patreon.
When we reach the NEXT milestone goal ($1000): I will post (at least) four Multiplex Movie Reviews or other bonus comics per month here for patrons! So it will be allllmost like three strips per week.
