Notes from the Manager
Alternate title (which was too long to use): "As If Millions of Cells Suddenly Cried Out in Terror and Were Suddenly Silenced." I was tempted to do something related to Captain America instead (because it's #616! heh) but decided against it.
As you're reading this, I'm back (or on my way back) to Minneapolis after a long weekend at the Chicago Comic Con. Thanks to everyone who came out to visit me and Tom in Artist's Alley! I'm sure it was an awesome show, but I'm writing this before I've even left for the con, so I don't really know yet.
The next con I'll be attending is the first Webcomics Con in Norwalk, Conn., on October 1–2, so if you're in New England, check that out. Other webcomics superstars (besides me) who will be there include T Campbell (The Guilded Age), Chris Hastings (Dr. McNinja), Scott Christian Sava (Dreamland Chronicles), and Greg Dean (Real Life) — so it should be pretty great.
I'm not sure what the update schedule will be like this week — two, at least. But possibly three, since I have to catch up from the move. Come back on Wednesday or Thursday or both or whatever. Or just keep your eyes peeled on the RSS feed, I guess.
UPDATE: I'm actually back from Chicago now, and it was a terrific show. Thanks again (for real this time) to everyone who came to see me, everyone who just happened to see me, and everyone else. If you're new to Multiplex, I strongly recommend starting from the beginning — or at least from the beginning of Book 5.
Oh, and the movie they're watching, in case you didn't know, is The Change-Up, starring Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman. It's been getting pretty dismal reviews, although audiences seem to be enjoying it more than critics. (Which is pretty normal for that kind of comedy.)
I've got some moving-related headaches to deal with today, but should be back on track with updates now. Thanks again to everybody who provided a guest strip over the last two weeks. I think we've seen the last of them for now; I'll try to get those added to the Guest Strips section of the site as soon as possible. Until then, you can always access them via the calendar in the left sidebar of the site.

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.
