Notes from the Manager
Also, if you're not familiar with The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, it's a new picture from Julian Schnabel (Basquiat, Before Night Falls). Being about a man who becomes completely paralyzed except for his left eye, it's a story that could easily have fallen into emotional torture porn territory if Diving Bell weren't so wonderfully shot, with a superb cast and accompanied by a terrific soundtrack. I have some quibbles with a couple of unnecessary liberties the script from the true story it's based upon, but they don't undermine the heart of the movie. It's still in limited release, so it may not be near many of you, but you'll be hearing about this film again come Oscar time.
UPDATE (1/1/08): Happy New Year! So this time, I'm going to try an Honor System Vote Incentive. That means, you don't have to vote at BuzzComix or TopWebComics, but it would sure be nice if you did. Those places have the same incentives as before. A new strip can be seen here, at my Flickr page. This strip takes place between Multiplex #s 23 and 24 (November, 2005) and features everybody's favorites, Jason and Becky, talking about Jane Austen's various film adaptations. Joy.

I just purchased a new shipping module for The Multiplex Store that gives me more flexibility in setting shipping and handling costs, so US customers will see much better rates on all (physical) items in the Multiplex Store. If any of you guys in the US balked at the shipping costs before, be sure to check them out now.
Books are $5 for the first one then $1.50 per additional book (rather than $5 per book), saving you $3.50 if you order two books. T-shirts are now $4 for the first shirt (any size) and $1.50 per additional shirt. And sketches and other artwork are also $4 for the first item, then $1 per additional item.
Rates for international customers are unchanged; I still use USPS First Class International’s rates as they are quoted by the USPS without any additional markup.
Now is as good as any to pick up that copy of Multiplex: There and Back Again!
