#289: Personal Religulosity, Part Three

October 10, 2008

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #226: Agree to Disagree?, Part One; #227: Agree to Disagree?, Part Two; #228: Agree to Disagree?, Part Three; #229: Flies, Vinegar, and Honey; #230: Life, the Universe, and Everything; #232: Blind Faith; #287: Personal Religulosity, Part One; #288: Personal Religulosity, Part Two

This strip takes place in an as-yet-unnamed 24-hour, ’50s-themed diner that just-so-happens to be decorated with movie posters from the decade. (I couldn’t resist.) It’s located down the strip mall from the Multiplex 10 and Flickhead Video, and will probably show up again sooner or later.

I’ve been really taken aback by the enthusiastic response to this story arc, particularly from my Christian readership. I hope this last installment of the three-parter didn’t ruin everything. Anyway, as always, thank you for reading.

The voting round continues through October 14th for Frumph.net’s Webcomics Readers Choice Awards! Angie has been nominated for (Best) Supporting Character, which is really cool in and of itself — but If she wins, I will do a bonus strip “acceptance speech”! She’s currently in the lead, but if you haven’t voted yet, be sure to help keep her there!

(Oh, and by the way, the desktop picture featuring Sunny as Tinker Bell that — previously available only as a vote incentive — has been added to the Extras page.)

UPDATE (10/11): A rather lengthy interview with me has gone up at ComixTalk. It's my second interview with them; the first was back in 2006, when Multiplex was still a new kid on the block.

The Multiplex 10 is ten years old this month

Multiplex-10-Years

Ten years ago this month (on July 10th, 2005, to be specific), I posted two shitty looking comics to a corner of the Stripped Books website. At that point, I had no idea what I was in for: it was a gag strip that would quickly transform into a character-based comedy where people talk about movies — not just superficially about specific movies, but about how people watch and talk about movies of all kinds. The art got a little better, too.

The Multiplex characters took on a life of their own and ultimately turned this comic into an eleven- or twelve-year “epic” about the movie theater industry in one of the most interesting periods in its hundred-year history (and also this one jerk who kinda sorta becomes a slightly better person maybe if you squint your eyes and cock your head to the side a little).

Multiplex’s readership grew quickly in those first few years, thanks in very large part to a pair of guest strips on PvP and some well-placed Project Wonderful ad campaigns (thanks, Something Positive and Shortpacked!), and in the years since it has since retained a small but passionate readership that has supported me time and time again: the Patreon project of course, as well as two successful Kickstarter projects to fund two books I’m very proud of.*

Thank you for allowing me to tell this story.

Thank you for reading.

* Speaking of Kickstarter projects, there will be an announcement about Multiplex: Book Three… very soon.
