#387: Wake-Up Call

August 21, 2009

Notes from the Manager

The big news today is: Multiplex finally has a merchandise store!

So far, there are just two T-shirt designs (one being the one Jason is wearing in this strip — although there is a design on the back you haven't seen yet) and the Multiplex: Chapter 1 downloadable eBook at its new, lower price.* But it exists, and it will slowly have things added to it. Peruse the shop and buy something, why don't you? (The Multiplex Store accepts both PayPal and credit card orders. If you want to send a check or have any other questions/comments about the store, just drop me a line!)

Thanks to my brother, Lawrence, for helping me get the store site up and running — and also to Jackson Ferrell, my merch guy, as well as the proprietor of This Week in Webcomics.

* If you have already purchased a copy of the Multiplex #1 eBook: HD Edition (not the WOWIO version) drop me a line. I'll give you some coupon codes to "upgrade" to the new version for free and get $1 off the shirts (or any future merchandise). Include the e-mail you used when you purchased the original eBook, so I can verify your previous purchase.

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.
