Notes from the Manager
So… yeah. #250, and the first (I think) completely self-contained strip in a rather long time, although it might help if you have even a passing familiarity with American Girl dolls (particularly the "Just Like You" line) and with the existence of the Kit Kittredge: An American Girl movie starring Abigal Breslin (in limited release now, opening nationwide on July 2nd). That being the case, if you're a boy and you don't get this strip, I wouldn't really stress out about it. Really.
EDIT (6/27/08): If only this ad could be up on this page all the time:
Anyway, so #250. It's not really a milestone, just a round number. As many of you know, there are a handful of other strips not in the archives, in the first Multiplex eBook and a one or two as-yet-uncollected ones from the upcoming second eBook (yes, I'm waaaaay behind, I know), so this is really not the 250th Multiplex strip.
The next real milestone for me will be the third anniversary, which is right around the corner, on July 10th — but I guess some people still think the round-numbers thing is pretty cool, so thank you for reading all the same.
By the way, despite my promise (to myself) that I won't be going to any comic book conventions until I have a frickin' comic book to sell, it turns out I will be appearing at this year's Wizard World Chicago after all — on Saturday (June 28) only. It's kind of an unoffical appearance, so I won't be in the program book, but you will be able to find me at Tom Brazelton's booth (#4308) in Artist's Alley, alongside Joe Dunn at the Digital Pimp booth (#4310). Stop by, introduce yourself, and I'll draw a crappy little picture for you… by hand, even.
Multiplex News & Updates
Bonus comics, drawings, and
other awesome stuff
Friday, January 5, 2018
Thanks to 130 backers at the Indiegogo Second Chance campaign, we’ve raised a healthy budget for the Multiplex 10 animated short’s release, film festival submission fees, and other promotional expenses — including all-new animated videos featuring some of the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. In other words: Multiplex 10 is going to be a web series.
Now, the web series will be a little different from the animated short. Because the budget is much tighter, they’ll feature a limited cast (only Jason and Kurt at first) and only be a minute or two long. At least one of them will run between 2–3 minutes, because that’s what the second Indiegogo stretch goal was for, but not necessarily the first one. In other words, a little like the thank you video above.
Over time, and with enough funding, we’ll hopefully be able to bring back some of the other cast members from the short, as well. But this is also uncharted territory for me, so I need to start small. This all feels very much like the early days of the comic strip, which is really exciting to me.
You can help support the production of the web series (as well as the production of Multiplex bonus comics for the collected editions) by joining my Patreon, buying stuff from the Multiplex 10 Store, or renting or buying the Multiplex 10 short through Vimeo On Demand!
