Notes from the Manager
I have a feeling a lot of you aren't going to get the Talk to Her reference. Talk to Her is a 2002 film by the Spanish writer-director Pedro Almodóvar, and it's a sublime film. Kiiinda disturbing in spots, but absolutely gorgeous. (Since we're still technically on Academy Awards night, I suppose it's relevant to mention the film earned Almodóvar a Best Original Screenplay Oscar, as well as a Best Director nomination.)
Hiccup is specifically referring to something in a black and white silent film within the film that you get a few glimpses of in the trailer. Even if you haven't seen the film, you might be able to figure it out from the trailer… heh
SEATTLEITES! I will be in your city this weekend for the 2011 Emerald City Comicon — as it says right over there in the left sidebar at the site under "Upcoming Events." Handy, huh? I'll be at table G-14 in Artist's Alley, as it says, so stop by and see me! I'll have books and a verrrry small handful of Michael Bay T-shirts, but I'll also be doing sketches and shaking hands and all the usual convention things.
Due to the con and some runnin' late, I'm afraid there will be an awesome guest strip up on Monday — I hope — but I'll be putting up my regular two updates on Wednesday and Friday instead.
SHIRTS ON SALE! I have a clearance sale on all of the T-shirts in my store at the moment. Copyright shirts have sold out (thank you!!), but the Workplace Romance, Popcorn and Breakfast Club are all $4.99 and even the über-popular Michael Bay is the Devil shirt is only $12.99.
This is a much simpler design than the Michael Bay shirt, so we only need 12 orders by Thursday, March 10th, before I print them up (probably a 1–2 week turnaround) and ship 'em out. If you want 'em, order 'em — especially if you want a Ladies size or Men's 2XL or 3XL (and if you need a size not listed, just shoot me an e-mail and I can set that up for you), because I will not print many extras to keep on-hand. If we don't get the minimum 12 orders, all orders will be canceled and all payments refunded, 'cause the shirts won't get printed!

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.
