Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #582: Gateway to Horror
The obvious response to this — and don't think Jason wouldn't have brought it up — is that the audience's imagination is scarier than anything Hollywood can throw at you, but that only works to some extent. There's only so much a movie can avoid showing you before it gets ridiculous: you can't shoot around everything. Try imagining a Jaws that absolutely never showed a shark. (Also, bear in mind this strip is specifically talking about creature design, not gore, which doesn't need to be explicit to be effective.)
So, anyway… bit of announcement today. Some of you may have already noticed the link graphic at the top late last week, but in case you didn't: Multiplex is now part of the Blank Label Comics collective, along with Dave Willis's Shortpacked, Kel McDonald of Sorcery 101 and Spike's Templar, Arizona. If you don't already read them, buy their books! (Or, you know, read them online.)
Unrelated note: I kinda want to make Kurt's T-shirt.
Multiplex 10 is here!
Although Multiplex 10 has ended, an animated prequel/reboot called Multiplex 10 was funded through Kickstarter in 2017 and is NOW AVAILABLE for rent or purchase on Vimeo On Demand, Amazon Video, and elsewhere! And an all-new, irregularly-updated Multiplex 10 web series (set after the short film) recently launched on YouTube! Learn more about the web series on the official Multiplex 10 website!
