#775: Early to Rise

January 28, 2013

Notes from the Manager

(I cheated and changed last Friday’s title from “Early to Bed, Early to Rise” to just “Early to Bed,” so I could use the “Early to Rise” part here instead.)

Part of Jason’s line in panel 3 is sort of self-indulgently in-jokey with myself. If you read through archives, a lot of the movie news-focused strips deal with movies that have, for better or for worse, never happened. (Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s kaiju flick, for instance.) I find this a little frustrating when I’m reading Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show, for instance, even though I know it’s not that big of a deal. The humor is more about how people talk about movies, not from the fact that they’re talking about these specific movies.

Anyway. Obviously, this is all real news. I know J. J. Abrams has his detractors (including some of you), but I love his directing. The scripts he works on aren’t always so solid, but the writers lined up for Episodes VII through IX are pretty promising. Although they’d have to be pretty spectacular for me to think of them as anything other than fan fiction, I’m curious to see what they come up with for the first time since the news of new Star Wars films broke.

Don’t forget that Multiplex is now on a Monday/Friday schedule, so see you in four days.

The Sessions: Voice Acting in Anime and Video Games

Thursday, February 11, 2016

This flyer design (including the illustrations, obviously) was a quick freelance project created for Chris Rager, the (English dub) voice of Hercule in Dragon Ball Z and Torgue in Borderlands 2 — a.k.a. the two characters shown here, if you’re unfamiliar with them. He’s starting up a class on voice acting next month and wanted something eye-catching to help promote it.

I met Chris at a convention a year or two ago (that’s why he called me to do this!), and he’s a blast, so if you’re in the Plano, Texas, area and interested, definitely look into this course. The first class runs from March 15th–April 5th, Tuesday evenings from 7–10 pm. (Four classes for three hours each class.)

I don’t know any more details, so just read the flyer!

If nothing else, I thought you guys might like the illustration.
