Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #808: The Neutral Zone
Sorry I was late with this one! I got it in under the Friday wire (for my time zone, anyway).
This is the first (or second?) of a short hand-drawn arc. As you can probably see, this one is less overtly a “promo” than the first one. They weren’t going to all be about coming to see movies, of course: these are partly just excuses for me to do hand-drawn comics with the Multiplex gang in fun situations.
Anyway. I’m trying to get caught up to the present day, but these hand-drawn strips take a lot of time, y’know.
For the people who haven’t seen Star Trek Into Darkness: rest assured, this does not spoil anything in the movie (except that there is a ship called the Vengeance, I guess, and Benedict Cumberbatch is in it at some point?)… Okay, nothing that wasn’t clear in the trailer, anyway. I wrote most of this arc before I ever saw the movie.
There will not be any spoilers in the rest of the arc, and I would appreciate it if there weren’t any in the comments section, either! Not even with a spoiler warning. Because come on.

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.
