This is going unstated, although I think it's obvious enough, but whatever Gretchen's original intent was (access to information, undoubtedly), Gretchen called in the favor Curtis owed her by having him give her a job at Flickhead Video.…

What happens with Allen remains to be seen (we'll find out soon), and of course we can't forget about Franklin, can we…? ;)

UPDATE: On The Triple Feature, we've got a little contest going — between ourselves, that is. Joe, Tom and I have a little Oscar pool set up (we discussed our picks for the Big Six on the latest show, as well as Confessions of a Shopaholic), and the two losers have to draw a guest strip for the winner… meaning no matter which one of us wins, you guys do!

Here's my ballot, so you can keep me honest! I'm terrible at these things, so it's pretty much a given that I'll be drawing a guest strip for somebody. sigh

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.
