#271: Seems Like Old Times, Part Two

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.

Multiplex 10: Hyrule Isn’t Going to Save Itself

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

If you’ve seen the rough animatic of the first scene from the animated short (which I posted both on Patreon and in the Kickstarter updates), you know that the episode begins before Jason has started working at the Multiplex 10.

So here’s one difference between the Multiplex 10 “universe” and Multiplex (comic strip) canon; Franklin started at the theater before Jason does. Also, the movie poster frames aren’t red anymore, because their vests are red, that was a really stupid decision, and I should have changed it ten years ago.

I feel bad that Franklin only has a small cameo in the first episode, especially since I already know who I want to voice him (hi, Terrence). Sadly, a lot of things that factor big in the comic won’t turn up in the first eleven minute episode, because it focuses on Kurt and Jason. But hopefully we’ll get to make more.

And even if we can’t, I’ll still want to make some mini-webisode sort of things and maybe a digital comic (e.g. Comixology Submit style)… and, of course, there’s also a tabletop/card game in development. So, like I’ve said, I’m not done with these characters yet.
