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.
How much Multiplex can you handle?!
In addition to the warm, soothing feeling of being a patron of the fine art of comic strippery, Patrons get access to free Multiplex eBooks, sneak previews of upcoming comics and other behind the scenes peeks, sketch giveaways, and more!

I thought I’d share this one publicly, rather than just to the Kickstarter and Patreon folks. It’ll be used as the “chapter illustration” for the back matter — which means that it will be directly opposite the last page of the comics in Book Three.
Anyway. I just have a couple of illustrations (the cover and the cover/chapter illustration for Chapter 15) before production is officially wrapped — which means I’ll be moving on to proofreading, pre-press, and other boring stuff next! BUT there will be movie review comics and things like that going up at Kickstarter and Patreon during that time.
