Notes from the Manager
Ta-dah! New website, sort of. With some help from my User Experience consultant -- a.k.a. my friend Taylor Regan of UXInvestigations -- I whipped up a new face for the Multiplex site. A lot of it is still more or less the same, but the site is, I think, a lot more streamlined and attractive.
• The header/menu has been fancied up and de-advertised. I'll let you discover the other new thing about it on your own, because I think it's pretty neat.
• I've removed and rearranged a lot of the buttons in the sidebar in order to cut down on Taylor called a "NASCAR effect" on the right side of the page.
• The MySpace and Facebook buttons on the side now link to the Multiplex group for each of those websites, respectively. (If you want to friend me at MySpace or Facebook, you're still welcome to, of course! I just moved those links onto the About page.)
I'm also working with my big brother Lawrence (who has apparently just bought a TV) to add a couple more minor functions to the site in the coming weeks, all aimed at making the website a little cleaner and the comic easier than ever to fall in love with -- and to share with your friends.
Anyway, I hope you dig the new site. Please let me know if you find any bugs or broken links. And, as always, thanks for reading!
But wait! There’s more!
Although Multiplex will be ending soon, thanks to readers like you on Patreon, the Multiplex 10 will stay open for business! I’ll be posting bonus comics from future print collections, Multiplex Movie Review strips, updates on the upcoming Multiplex animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.
In addition to the warm, soothing feeling of being a patron of the fine art of comic strippery, Patrons get access to free Multiplex eBooks, sneak previews of upcoming comics and other behind the scenes peeks, sketch giveaways, and more!

Heads up, completists. I have a three page story in the new Mae Volume One TPB from Dark Horse Comics. This is the same one I co-wrote (with Mae creator Gene Ha) and as a thank-you for backers of its original Kickstarter edition — and Dark Horse’s editors decided to include the story in the back matter of this new collection, along with a bunch of other short stories by other great creators.
BUT… I have a story in a Dark Horse-published book! That’s cool!
If you’re not familiar with Mae, it’s an all-ages adventure comic by Gene Ha (Top Ten and a billion other comics). Here’s the official Dark Horse synopsis:
When she was just a girl, Abbie discovered a portal to a fantasy world and has since had great adventures there: defeating horrible monsters, power-mad scientists, and evil nobles. But when she turned twenty-one it all came apart and she decided to return home. Her sister, Mae, had no idea what happened to Abbie all this time, and Abbie’s tales are too hard to believe—that is, until the monsters and other terrible creatures start to cross over to our world . . . Collects issues #1–#6.
I highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun. You can learn more about Mae Volume One on Amazon.
