#593: Accidents Will Happen

May 30, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #591: Blood Thirst; #592: It’s All Fun and Games…

Don't think the Multiplex staff is going to get off this easy, after an accident like this. Stay tuned.

Once again, I am going to try for more than the usual two updates this week — and it will definitely happen. BUT… I don't know quite how many there will be. Three? Five? I don't know yet! I don't have a freelance job getting in the way this week — yet — so it's looking pretty good.

But there will definitely be at least two more — since they're already done — those two being bonus comics for the upcoming Chapter 6 eBook, which will go up over at the Deleted Scenes blog — so be sure to subscribe to the Multiplex Complete RSS feed (or at least to the Comics category feed) to keep up to date.

Time is running out on the Rhyme Bandits T-shirt pre-order! We're coming up short at the moment, so if you'd like to see this shirt get made, order it today!

(Thanks to Terrence Wiggins of Stagnant Pool Party for the help figuring out the title for this strip. It always helps to have a sounding board! Check out SPP if you like crazy-ass webcomics. When I archive-binged their relatively young strip, I had laughs a-plenty.)

UPDATE (5/31): The first of the two Chapter 6 bonus comics set for this week is up over at Deleted Scenes.

The Multiplex 10 is ten years old this month

Multiplex-10-Years

Ten years ago this month (on July 10th, 2005, to be specific), I posted two shitty looking comics to a corner of the Stripped Books website. At that point, I had no idea what I was in for: it was a gag strip that would quickly transform into a character-based comedy where people talk about movies — not just superficially about specific movies, but about how people watch and talk about movies of all kinds. The art got a little better, too.

The Multiplex characters took on a life of their own and ultimately turned this comic into an eleven- or twelve-year “epic” about the movie theater industry in one of the most interesting periods in its hundred-year history (and also this one jerk who kinda sorta becomes a slightly better person maybe if you squint your eyes and cock your head to the side a little).

Multiplex’s readership grew quickly in those first few years, thanks in very large part to a pair of guest strips on PvP and some well-placed Project Wonderful ad campaigns (thanks, Something Positive and Shortpacked!), and in the years since it has since retained a small but passionate readership that has supported me time and time again: the Patreon project of course, as well as two successful Kickstarter projects to fund two books I’m very proud of.*

Thank you for allowing me to tell this story.

Thank you for reading.

* Speaking of Kickstarter projects, there will be an announcement about Multiplex: Book Three… very soon.
