#339: Must Have the Precious

March 16, 2009

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #308: Twilight of the Nerds

The comic Keith is reading is The Night Projectionist, by Bob Heske and Diego Yapura, a horror comic (in the vein of the old EC horror comics, but with a fresh, modern flavor) about — yep — a mysterious projectionist who has to protect a movie theater full of small-town yokels from a vampire attack. (No, this was not a paid product placement, although I almost made a product placement joke in this strip — but it felt too much like I was breaking the fourth wall.)

The first issue is now available at fine local comics shops everywhere (or at Heavy Ink, if you want to order it online). It's also being serialized online in black and white as a Night Projectionist Noir (the first twelve pages are up so far, and it almost looks cooler in black and white). This first issue is all set-up, though; the second issue is where the fun really begins. If reading isn't your thing, you can also wait for the movie adaptation from Myriad Pictures, which has already been announced.

Thanks are due to Studio 407 and Bob Heske for permission to use the cover art in this comic.

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.
