#447: Saving It for the Sequel

February 22, 2010

Notes from the Manager

You can check out the trailer for Waking Sleeping Beauty over at Apple (and read a little bit about it, as well).

Whilst researching this strip, I happened upon the Wikipedia page about the Sleeping Beauty story, where I found out that in some early versions of the tale, the princess was raped in her sleep by some king or prince or another. In one version, a King rapes her and she bears two children while she's still asleep — and one of the children sucks the thorn that keeps her asleep from her finger, waking her up.

Damn! Some of those original, un-Bowdlerized fairy tales were messed up.

As a fan of 2D animation, I'd like to think that The Princess and the Frog was like The Great Mouse Detective of a new new renaissance — a minor success that paves the way for some truly fantastic stuff down the road — but we'll have to wait and see how it all plays out.

Multiplex_Ch14_eBook cover

Multiplex: Chapter 14 is now available! If you’re a Kickstarter or Patreon backer, you have already been notified about this, but for those of you who aren’t, you can get it from Gumroad superfast, or you can get it from the Multiplex Store. Either way supports the continued creation of Multiplex.

In Multiplex: Chapter 14, Jason reads a book while the Flickhead and Multiplex crews play more video games. This is some heavy shit here, broh! This volume collects strips #287–310 from the Multiplex archives, plus five bonus comics not found online!

I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I hope to continue making new Multiplex comics for these collections at about the same pace as the regular comic (two a week) over at Patreon, and then releasing the eBook collections with this material every 4–6 weeks or so. (And then funding a print collection through Kickstarter after all of the bonus material is finished — rather than funding the creation of that new material with the Kickstarter as I’ve done for the first three books.)

So just because the strip will be finished doesn’t mean Multiplex is going to disappear entirely!
