Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #489: Toy Story 2
I apologize to everyone involved with How to Train Your Dragon for this strip.
Today, no guest strip — but in addition to my own comic, I do have a guest poem by Katie Schenkel:
Multiplex: An Ode
Standing Jason, Sitting Kurt
Their opinions reassert.
Movie news and movie rumors,
Complaining about consumers.
Kurt’s a fan of action flicks,
Films with zombies are his picks.
Jason’s often hard to please,
Disdain is his expertise.
But you never know what’s next
When you work at a Multiplex.
Katie says that was intentionally bad, but I don't believe her. She's also got a movie blog over at JustPlainSomething.com, so you can check that out sometime.
Tomorrow, we'll have yet another guest strip (and at least one more next week, too), but don't forget that I'm still keeping up with my regular updates, as well.
Also happening tomorrow is Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show releasing to the printer! Which just means they'll take a look at it, run out some proofs, and we'll see if any mistakes slipped past me and the proofreaders over these past two weeks before they actually print the thing… but we're getting there!

We’ve just hit the second milestone goal ($600)!
What this means is, once my patrons’ accounts are charged next (around the first of next month), MULTIPLEX WILL BE COMPLETELY READER-SUPPORTED AND DEVOID OF THOSE ANNOYING THIRD PARTY ADS. Thank you so incredibly much to all of the Patreon backers and anyone else who spread the word about the project (or Multiplex, really)!
Once I can roll out the reworked site, strip images will be significantly larger (most likely 900px wide), yet the website should still load a bit faster. My programmer Jelly and I are looking at making the site both responsive and retina-friendly at the same time, but those may take a while longer… so no promises for those just yet.
I would just yank the ads now, because I hate them, except that would screw up the site layout. Removing them is not quite as simple as it might seem, I’m afraid, and will involve a bit of a redesign, as I mention in the Milestone Goals sidebar over at Patreon.
When we reach the NEXT milestone goal ($1000): I will post (at least) four Multiplex Movie Reviews or other bonus comics per month here for patrons! So it will be allllmost like three strips per week.
