#563: A Night in the Patio, Part Three

February 21, 2011

Notes from the Manager

The gentleman Devi and Jason are talking to here is Demetri Kouvalis, the son of the owner of the Patio Theatre. They are indeed — in real life — reopening the Patio Theatre (although I think they're spelling it "Theater" now); they're shooting for a March opening, but as it says in panel 1, it's all up to the city right now.

The white cloudy-looking things on the "starry sky" canopy in panel 6 of the movie theater are projected clouds — a relatively common thing in "atmospheric" auditoriums from this era. You can get a better look at that panel in the current TopWebComics vote incentive.

I'll give you a lot more information about all this on Wednesday, so… see you then. (And for those of you who find this old movie theater stuff kind of boring, the planned Wednesday strip is the last one in this arc. Next week is Oscar weekend!)

SHIRTS ON SALE! I have a clearance sale on all of the T-shirts in my store, because… I'm trying to clear out of my stock? (That's what those are usually for, right?) Some of them are as low as $4.99, so, y'know. Check 'em out.

Multiplex: Chapter 14 is now available!

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!
