Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #820: Moving On
I lied last week, I guess. This is sort of an epilogue to the last arc and a hint at Things To Come.
This is the first time it’s been mentioned in the strip, but those of you who pay attention to the Cast pages know that Feature Cinemas is the chain the Multiplex 10 belongs to. We’ll be meeting a lot more people from other theaters (and home office) in Book Seven.
See you later this week! I’m a little tied up with my summer assistantship to do three this week, I think — and I really need to finish off Book Two, which is so far behind schedule I hate myself. So it’ll probably be Thursday. Anyway, we’ll check back in with Kurt and Jason’s film series then.
UPDATE (7/3): With the upcoming iPhone app including Notes from the Managers, as well, I thought I should try to keep them a little more strip-centric from now on, so I’ve moved some paragraphs about my Amazon.com affiliate link woes over to a Deleted Scenes post. If you don’t get those in your RSS feed, update your address to the current Multiplex Complete RSS feed address!
For you website visitors (thank you for the ad revenue!), you’ll still be able to see me talk about irrelevant shit like that in Deleted Scenes posts right here on the front page of the website — it’ll just be a few inches lower: I’ve added the most recent Deleted Scenes post to the homepage, as well. (I’ve wanted to do that forever, but only recently learned how I could force the movie trailer embeds to fit within the smaller space on the homepage and not break the layout. Hooray for learning.)
The archive pages will still just have headlines, because I don’t like to slow down the page load times for you guys who go on long archive binges.

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.
