#253: Never Underestimate the Power of The Dark Knight

July 7, 2008

Notes from the Manager

Since, as you know, all of the movie news in Multiplex is absolutely true:

The exclusive Dark Knight trailer at the Domino's website can be seen by entering "000 000 0000" into the Domino's Pizza Tracker. There is currently one up, and it looks like a second one is on its way, presumably before the movie is released on the 18th. (I would guess sometime this week, actually.) It looks like the 000 number doesn't work anymore, but it's up at YouTube now.

The teaser and the two official full trailers can be found at Apple. The "alternate" Dark Knight trailer (originally available exclusively to Comcast On Demand customers) can be seen at Daily Motion. The viral Two-Face clip can be seen at YouTube.

As far as I can tell, the first six minutes that played at IMAX can only be found in ultra-shitty hand-held camera bootleg versions, and fuck that shit. (Besides which, despite all the trailers, I've avoided watching the first six minutes, because I don't want to see it until I'm watching the movie properly.)

P.S. Did you know I am on Twitter? Because I am. On Twitter.

UPDATE: Hey! Ryan Estrada drew Kurt into a guest arc for Alma Mater!

UPDATE AGAIN: Hey! AIR RAID, a new online mag about music and other cool shit, had a chat with me and a few other people about Multiplex (of course) and "underground and DIY comics" — which is a way cooler term than webcomics, honestly. Fuck "webcomics." I just draw comics.

UPDATE TIMES THREE: Multiplex has recently partnered up with a Chicago-area movie website, Hollywood Chicago. You can see their pretty little logo at the base of the sidebar. They currently have a give-away for some free passes to the new documentary, American Teen, so if you're in the area, hop over to their site and, you know, follow the instructions.

The Multiplex 10 is ten years old this month

Multiplex-10-Years

Ten years ago this month (on July 10th, 2005, to be specific), I posted two shitty looking comics to a corner of the Stripped Books website. At that point, I had no idea what I was in for: it was a gag strip that would quickly transform into a character-based comedy where people talk about movies — not just superficially about specific movies, but about how people watch and talk about movies of all kinds. The art got a little better, too.

The Multiplex characters took on a life of their own and ultimately turned this comic into an eleven- or twelve-year “epic” about the movie theater industry in one of the most interesting periods in its hundred-year history (and also this one jerk who kinda sorta becomes a slightly better person maybe if you squint your eyes and cock your head to the side a little).

Multiplex’s readership grew quickly in those first few years, thanks in very large part to a pair of guest strips on PvP and some well-placed Project Wonderful ad campaigns (thanks, Something Positive and Shortpacked!), and in the years since it has since retained a small but passionate readership that has supported me time and time again: the Patreon project of course, as well as two successful Kickstarter projects to fund two books I’m very proud of.*

Thank you for allowing me to tell this story.

Thank you for reading.

* Speaking of Kickstarter projects, there will be an announcement about Multiplex: Book Three… very soon.
