#307: Revisionist History (or, Why Neil Is a Genius)

December 11, 2008

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #298: Adding Injury to Insult; #301: Franklin Onassis, All American; #305: We Are Multiplex; #306: Life and Debt

While researching this strip, I stumbled across this artcle from the Chicago Sun-Times, from November 8, 2003: "Fires allegedly set in theaters: Feds say projectionist union members tried to intimidate owners." Man, truth is stranger than fiction. (UPDATE: Apparently the full 9-page release about their arrest and their 32-page indictment are available from the Department of Justice website. Scroll down to the November 7, 2003, entry — my birthday!)

But there you have it. Alas, Franklin is still fired from the Multiplex 10, but at least he's not out $600 in this economy, right? (Not that he seemed too worried about it in #306.…) Anyway, he'll land on his feet, though. Promise.

Sharp-eyed readers might notice that the calendar is on November in the background of panels 1–3, and that the poster is for Twilight. If you've never picked up on the pattern, the poster in the manager's station is always the big new release that week. This is because the whole football arc took place in (you guessed it) November, and this little epilogue to that takes place around Black Friday.

I'll be adding the "interlude strip" (which I posted in the Multiplex Forum around Thanksgiving) into the archives in the next few days, since this is where it fits chronologically. Aaand so for Monday, I can catch up with real time and, finally, step boldly into December.

The Sessions: Voice Acting in Anime and Video Games

Thursday, February 11, 2016

This flyer design (including the illustrations, obviously) was a quick freelance project created for Chris Rager, the (English dub) voice of Hercule in Dragon Ball Z and Torgue in Borderlands 2 — a.k.a. the two characters shown here, if you’re unfamiliar with them. He’s starting up a class on voice acting next month and wanted something eye-catching to help promote it.

I met Chris at a convention a year or two ago (that’s why he called me to do this!), and he’s a blast, so if you’re in the Plano, Texas, area and interested, definitely look into this course. The first class runs from March 15th–April 5th, Tuesday evenings from 7–10 pm. (Four classes for three hours each class.)

I don’t know any more details, so just read the flyer!

If nothing else, I thought you guys might like the illustration.
