#464: Sweet Little Sixteen

April 19, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #52: Young Love

Welcome, new readers from C2E2! If I didn't get the chance to explain it to you, the humor in Multiplex is largely character-based, not gag-based, so it would be best for you to start from the beginning.

If you aren't familiar at all with the cast of Kick-Ass, you might not know that Chloe Grace Moretz — a.k.a. Hit Girl — is 13. (She was 11 when she filmed Kick-Ass.)

Anyway!

Apparently I come across as grumpy on the internet. That's because I use Twitter to bitch about shit and like to swear. I'm actually a very nice person when you meet me, as those of you who visited me at C2E2 (hopefully) realized. :) Thanks to everybody who came out and chatted with me or bought stuff! You rock.

The con was a blast, Joel Watson (Hijinks Ensue) couldn't have been more fun to share a table with — and as I found out on a Friday night karaoke excursion with a ton of other fellow cartoonists, he is a force to be reckoned with at singing "Mr. Roboto" by Styx. I kid you not. S. Dave Shabet (Dead Winter) also does an awesome James Hetfield impression, as well.

And thanks again to Harrison Pious (My Little World) for bringing me a flask of brandy. You get the Reader of the Year award, Harrison. All you Kickstarter backers collectively got it last year. :)

Multiplex 10: the web series is coming!

Friday, January 5, 2018

Thanks to 130 backers at the Indiegogo Second Chance campaign, we’ve raised a healthy budget for the Multiplex 10 animated short’s release, film festival submission fees, and other promotional expenses — including all-new animated videos featuring some of the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. In other words: Multiplex 10 is going to be a web series.

Now, the web series will be a little different from the animated short. Because the budget is much tighter, they’ll feature a limited cast (only Jason and Kurt at first) and only be a minute or two long. At least one of them will run between 2–3 minutes, because that’s what the second Indiegogo stretch goal was for, but not necessarily the first one. In other words, a little like the thank you video above.

Over time, and with enough funding, we’ll hopefully be able to bring back some of the other cast members from the short, as well. But this is also uncharted territory for me, so I need to start small. This all feels very much like the early days of the comic strip, which is really exciting to me.

You can help support the production of the web series (as well as the production of Multiplex bonus comics for the collected editions) by joining my Patreon, buying stuff from the Multiplex 10 Store, or renting or buying the Multiplex 10 short through Vimeo On Demand!
