#321: It’s How We Always Do It

If you're confused right now and panel 7 didn't make it clear enough: yes, Jason can read.

Here's a little more detail on the Veronica Mars movie that might be happening. Strong emphasis on might.

By the way, if you missed Monday night's Triple Feature (#107), I was remiss in not promoting it, but Joe, Tom and myself went through our "Top 10 Favorite Movies of 2008." You can listen to our commentary about our lists and the films in the extra-long edition of the podcast, but here was my list:

  1. The Wrestler
  2. WALL•E
  3. In Bruges
  4. Milk
  5. Man on Wire
  6. Iron Man / Incredible Hulk (tie, and yes, I know I was cheating)
  7. Kung Fu Panda
  8. JCVD
  9. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
  10. Son of Rambow

Runners Up: The Dark Knight; Slumdog Millionaire; Let the Right One In; The Counterfeiters; Synecdoche, NY

Before any of you get all mad and yell at me for not including __________ in my list, it's my opinion, and I know my taste is a little peculiar. There's a reason we call them "our favorite movies of 2008," not "the best movies of 2008." So nyeah.

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.

— Gordon


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