#274: EstroFest 2008

August 27, 2008

Notes from the Manager

I'm going to try for another strip on Friday (hence the Wednesday update), buuut it might just end up being an extra-long Monday strip.

In the mean-time, complain about the new hairstyles in the Multiplex Forum!

You can see a trailer for House Bunny over at Apple. I enjoyed House Bunny, by the way. It's not a new comedy classic by any stretch of the imagination (perhaps it would have been if the writers — who previously penned Legally Blonde — had, you know, stretched their imagination a little bit more), but Anna Faris is always terrific, delivering mediocre lines so spot-on that it actually makes them funny… and it sure doesn't hurt that there's a lot of eye candy in the movie, despite the excess of slut-gear. (And yet, the screening I went to was almost entirely girls.)

For more on my thoughts (as well as Tom and Joe's) about the movie, check out episode #87 of The Triple Feature.

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.
