Guest strip by Tom Brazelton (Theater Hopper)

January 7, 2013

Notes from the Manager

Thanks to Tom Brazelton of the recently ended Theater Hopper for today's guest strip. This one is actually sort of a passing of the torch strip for this character, Jimmy. If you read Theater Hopper regularly, you'll know him from that comic and possibly have seen Tom's recent announcement that he'll be joining the Multiplex 10 crew starting in Book 7, taking on a Shift Supervisor position. Tom's one of my best buds in webcomics, and I'm really happy to keep Jimmy alive for a little longer (mwah ha ha ha… kidding).

Whether or not you've read Theater Hopper, though, please check out Tom's recently launched Kickstarter project for Theater Hopper eBooks! It's a really funny strip, chock full of movie jokes (oh man, do you guys remember when I used to do movie jokes? memories…), and I even make a cameo in it once in a while. It's good times!

Oh, and sharp-eyed readers will notice that the URL in the copyright line for this doesn't actually say Theater Hopper — it says Midwestern Nice. What's Midwestern Nice?! I'm not telling. Mostly because I don't know. But I'm still not telling!

See you Thursday with one last guest strippy sort of thing. Book 7 starts on Monday.

Multiplex 10: the web series is coming!

Friday, January 5, 2018

Thanks to 130 backers at the Indiegogo Second Chance campaign, we’ve raised a healthy budget for the Multiplex 10 animated short’s release, film festival submission fees, and other promotional expenses — including all-new animated videos featuring some of the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. In other words: Multiplex 10 is going to be a web series.

Now, the web series will be a little different from the animated short. Because the budget is much tighter, they’ll feature a limited cast (only Jason and Kurt at first) and only be a minute or two long. At least one of them will run between 2–3 minutes, because that’s what the second Indiegogo stretch goal was for, but not necessarily the first one. In other words, a little like the thank you video above.

Over time, and with enough funding, we’ll hopefully be able to bring back some of the other cast members from the short, as well. But this is also uncharted territory for me, so I need to start small. This all feels very much like the early days of the comic strip, which is really exciting to me.

You can help support the production of the web series (as well as the production of Multiplex bonus comics for the collected editions) by joining my Patreon, buying stuff from the Multiplex 10 Store, or renting or buying the Multiplex 10 short through Vimeo On Demand!
