Notes from the Manager
Those of you read Stripped Books know how I like to shift up my art style now and then, and I’ve been meaning to do that in Multiplex for fake movies — or, like this, flashbacks — for some time. (I suppose I sort of did it in #235.) I’ve just never done any other flashbacks (besides #235), and on the few occasions I’ve done fake movies in the past, I haven’t had time to play around figuring out a different style.
So anyway, James’s flashback (and this three-parter) will conclude on Friday, with some more of the Regal Theater.
Since I added this late Monday, here it is again: The Playing in Peoria Podcast chatted with me about Multiplex, movies, and the greatest movie Robert Downey Jr. will never star in the other day, and you can check it out online now or download it directly from iTunes. Give their other shows a listen, too, because — being co-hosted by a bunch of comedians — the shit is hysterical. I highly recommend episodes 8 and 14.

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.
