Notes from the Manager
(Yes, this strip is named after the Men at Work song.)
The Haunting (1963, directed by Robert Wise) is the first of many film adaptations of Shirley Jackson's novella "The Haunting of Hill House." The film — despite its G rating, early-sixties timeframe and nearly nonexistent special effects — is indeed super creepy. In fact, Martin Scorsese placed it in his "11 Scariest Horror Movies of All Time" list for The Daily Beast. (It was at the top of the list, but I'm not 100% sure it was an ordered list.)
I watched it on Amazon Streaming, incidentally, and highly recommend it.
There are a couple of hints as to what movie #2 in tonight's double feature might be in this strip, but I ain't telling until Monday.
By the way! If you live in the Detroit area (or close enough), I will be at Penguicon this weekend (Friday 4/29–Sunday 5/1), in the Dealer Room somewhere or another. (I'll also be on a couple of panels: "Marketing Your Comic" at noon on Saturday in Ballroom B and "Balancing Comedy and Drama in a Webcomic" at 5pm on Saturday in Ballroom G.) I will, naturally, have copies of the book with me, and I'll be doing sketches and such-like, as well.
How much Multiplex can you handle?!
In addition to the warm, soothing feeling of being a patron of the fine art of comic strippery, Patrons get access to free Multiplex eBooks, sneak previews of upcoming comics and other behind the scenes peeks, sketch giveaways, and more!

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!
