#72: It’s the Principle of It (spoiler-free version)

July 3, 2006

Notes from the Manager

What's going on here, you're asking? Well, the new strip has spoilers for Superman Returns in it. I know, sorry. If you've already seen Superman Returns or have no plans to, click here to check out the spoiler version. Don't let the naysayers fool you: Superman Returns is a really solid movie. The first half is practically flawless. My (few) misgivings are the same as Jason's, but the film's highlights make it well worth watching. Some moments feel straight out the Fleischer brothers cartoons, and it's interesting to feel like you're watching a comic book movie that actually advances the Superman mythos, rather than wallows in a half-assed approximation of it. I'm really hoping they make a sequel or two.

(By the way, the inquisitive looking guy in the blue shirt is another reader contest winner, by the name of Zophiel. Congrats, Zophiel! And if you'd like to appear in Multiplex yourself, join the forum--every now and then, I'll do a spur-of-the-moment contest with the dubious prize being an appearance as a background character in the strip.)

Today, I said goodbye to my best friend and my uncredited assistant since Multiplex began. As you may know from previous posts here, he has had some health issues for a while, and… well, the short version is, a new infection (compounded by his other issues) raised the question of the quality of his life. We had a good eighteen years.

Good night, sweet boy. I’ll miss you.

Multiplex is taking a short break.

UPDATE: Multiplex will start updating again on 2/12.
