Sorry for leading you on (sort of), but that's it for Sophia. Bye, Sophia! And welcome back, Devi. She'll pop up again in the near future.

You can, of course, get the Art Is Failure, Life Is Shit shirt from the Multiplex Store, but that's been there for a while. There's also a brand new design there — sort of.

You remember waaaay back in Multiplex #684 when Franklin was talking about how the Michael Bay-produced Ninja Turtles movie will find our half-shelled heroes originating from another planet, rather than from our own beloved Earth?

UPDATE: The timing of this is uncanny — obviously Paramount saw this T-shirt design go up for sale and balked, because the film has been shelved “indefinitely.”

UPDATE 2: The original source for that, an article at The Hollywood Reporter, was updated to say it may have only been delayed by ten weeks, and is now targeting a March 2014 release.

So yeah. I finally got around to drawing this shirt design up and so you can now get a Ninja Turtles-inspired Michael Bay is the Devil design to complement the popular Transformers G1-inspired design. If you like it, tell your friends about it!

See you Monday!

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.
