#269: Old School, Part Two

August 15, 2008

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #268: Old School, Part One

For those of you not from Chicago, it's been hinted at before, with things like a Chicago Tribune in the background of a panel or an 847 area code mentioned in another strip, but this strip makes it fairly explicit: the Multiplex 10 in located in an unnamed (fictional) suburb of Chicago, on the north side.

Bronzeville and Rogers Park are (real) Chicago neighborhoods, and the Regal Theater and the Granada Theatre are — or rather were — real Chicago theaters, both designed by Edward Eichenbaum of Levy & Klein (Eichenbaum also designed the Century Theatre, formerly the Diversey, although only its façade remains standing). The Regal, in particular, was a cultural cornerstone of black Chicago for the four decades it was in business… which I'm sure James will talk about in time.

TopWebComics has the same hand-drawn sketch of Jason and Becky done for Jackson Ferrell that I posted the other day. (He had requested the two hanging out in their civilian clothes.)

But wait! There’s more!

Although Multiplex will be ending soon, thanks to readers like you on Patreon, the Multiplex 10 will stay open for business! I’ll be posting bonus comics from future print collections, Multiplex Movie Review strips, updates on the upcoming Multiplex animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.

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!

The collected Multiplex Movie Reviews eBook is now available

Thursday, March 16, 2017

 

A brand spanking new eBook collecting all twenty-nine Multiplex Movie Reviews to date is now available via Gumroad. It’s priced at $1.99 and includes a bunch of strips never posted to the Multiplex site and previously only available to Kickstarter backers and Patreon patrons. Some of them are even funny!

(Please note that if you are a Book Three Kickstarter backer or current Patreon patron, you already have access to this eBook! I included a link in the latest updates on each site.)
