Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #1101: Back to Basics
The title of this strip is a line from The English Patient that I feel like I've quoted here (in Multiplex) before in some capacity or another, because I love the line. It’s just about the only thing I remember from the movie, roughly fifteen years after having seen it. It’s a kind of throwaway moment in the film, where Katharine Clifton (Kristin Scott Thomas) comments that she’s always “wanted to meet the man who could write a long paper with so few adjectives.”
Almásy (Ralph Fiennes) replies: “Well, a thing is still a thing no matter what you place in front of it: big car, slow car, chauffeur-driven car…”
A third character interjects: “Broken car.”
Almásy shrugs: “Still a car.”
So the point — that is to say, the way it ties into this strip — is that a “boring” (in Kurt’s opinion) horror movie is still a horror movie.

Hello! If you’re in the area, come meet me at Wizard World Philadelphia with Phil Kahn of Guilded Age. We’ll be at Booth 1702. NOTE: I will only be there from June 2–4. No Thursday preview for me.
(Here’s a floor plan for your planning pleasure.)
If you use the coupon code GUILDED, you can get 20% off your advanced ticket orders.
I will have copies of the brand-spankin’-new, not-even-officially-released Multiplex: The Revenge (Book Three) in tow, draw sketches (for monies), and if my iPad has any juice in it, I’ll show you some behind the scenes stuff from the Multiplex 10 short, too.
