#837: The End of Summer

August 22, 2013

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #465: Pretty Good Bet; #466: Flattery Will Get You Everywhere

Another sort-of-related strip would be #207½ (“Just Press Play”) from the Chapter 10 eBook (and Book Two). Becky and Franklin never spent a lot of screen time together, but since they’re both projectionists and debatably the two most book-smart characters in the comic (Becky being a science nerd and Franklin being a programmer), I’ve always felt they would have had a solid rapport.

This strip takes its title from the Yasujiro Ozu film of the same name, one of my favorite directors, whose work is very often imbued with melancholy. (It’s not one of my favorites, but the title fit. The film’s plot has nothing to do with anything, though)

Just saying this now: Monday’s comic will be up in the afternoon/early evening, most likely, as I’m going to be away from a proper computer most of the weekend.

We’ll have at least one more strip on Becky’s last day next week. I’ll see you then!

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.
