Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #590: Freddy vs. Jason
I want to do three updates this week, since I've got the rest of Book 5 mapped out, and it's pretty time-sensitive — but I'm not sure how things are going to go this week with my current freelance gig, and so I'm not sure if I'll have time… To be perfectly frank, I'm not sure I'll be able to get Thursday's strip on time, if I'm working as many hours as I've been over the last few days.
Keep your eyes peeled, I guess? Or, y'know, follow @multiplex10 (or @gmcalpin) on Twitter, "Like" Multiplex on Facebook, or subscribe to the Multiplex RSS feed, or one of the many, many ways to keep up to date with websites in the 21st century.
There is a new T-shirt design available for PRE-ORDER in the Multiplex Store: Rhyme Bandits, which is (obviously) a play on the Time Bandits logo. This was on the short Whitey wore in the last couple of strips, except that I never actually showed the logo. (Someone's head was in the way in #590, and his back was turned in #589.) It just kind of worked out that way.
Anyway, I liked the idea and posted it on Facebook, and a few people suggested I actually make it a shirt, so… if 15 of you pre-order the design, I will print these up on royal blue shirts. If not enough people order, I'll refund everybody's money and be sad. (As always, I highly recommend anyone who wants Ladies shirts, or Men's 2XL or 3XL shirts to pre-order, because I simply don't sell enough of those designs to merit keeping them on-hand. I am, sorry to say, not Topatoco.)
So, since Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides relates to this week's comics, I should ask — did any of you see it? (I was either sleeping, working on the strip, or stuck in an office all weekend, so… I didn't get to.) Was it a fun throwback to the original film, or a tedious, convoluted attempt to capture lightning in a bottle yet another time?
How much Multiplex can you handle?!

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!
