The first panel here took me twelve hours to draw, so there's a lot more detail in it than you can see here online. Vote for Multiplex at TopWebComics to see it twice as big!
I mentioned on Monday that I'd be telling you a lot more about the Patio today — and I will, but it won't be here. Head on over to Chicago's own Gapers Block to read "The Return of the Patio Theater," an interview I conducted with the Patio's new manager (and son of the owner), Demetri Kouvalis — plus a brief history of the Patio and a photo set with photos by yours truly and my friend Charlene Epple. (Some of the photos were used as reference in this arc, so you might recognize them.)
For some behind-the-scenes chatter about this story arc and Multiplex in general, have a listen to TGT Webcomics Podcast Episode #151 wherein Kurt Sasso and I chat it up for an hour and a half about movies, the Patio Theatre, how I draw the strip, and even a couple of teases about where things are heading in the near future.
See you Friday with the last of my little three-strips-a-week bout of masochism.
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 clearance sales are usually for, right?) Some of the designs are as low as $4.99, so, y'know. Check 'em out soon!

This apparently hit big at Sundance, and who doesn’t like Jean-Ralphio’s sister on Parks & Rec? Okay, maybe a lot of people, but Jenny Slate is fuckin’ funny. Anyway. Obvious Child is an indie comedy-drama about a young potty-mouth comedian (Slate) who finds out she’s pregnant and… just watch this.
Obvious Child was written and directed by Gillian Robespierre. It hits theaters on June 6, 2014. It’s so indie, its official movie site is on Tumblr.
