Related Strips: #367: I Am a Snob, Not Only in Fact, But on Principle
Well, I almost got through a whole strip without nekkid people.
The poster in Lydia's apartment is for Pierrot Le Fou, a Jean-Luc Godard movie starring Anna Karina (like Vivre Sa Vie, which Jason and her bonded over back in #357). Yes, we've been following Jason and his confused bed-hopping antics for a little while now, but look at it this way: it's only been eleven strips, or just half of a regular-length comic book. It's all very necessary; trust me.
Next time (a.k.a. Thursday), we will probably actually be at the Multiplex 10. Because this strip is called Multiplex.
Join Tom Brazelton (Theater Hopper), Joe Dunn (Joe Loves Crappy Movies), and myself (Multiplex, duh) for The Triple Feature live via TalkShoe at 9PM Central, when we'll have a special guest, Trisha Lynn, my Movie Make-out co-blogger, to discuss Year One, Moon, and — briefly — The Movie Make-out/Triple Feature Top Ten (And Then Some) Sci-Fi Movies List. And maybe some other stuff.
Lastly, but not leastly, you can see an enlarged, lettering-free version of panel 1 as the TopWebComics vote incentive, because I was really happy with how the background turned out. (For a background that will probably not get a whole lot of use, I spent an awful lot of time getting the reflection right.)

They’re showing all kinds of too much in this teaser trailer, I think, but it looks pretty great… despite the stupid character designs on the villains. (I was one of those people who enjoyed Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man flick quite a bit; the major clunky parts being where they seemed to think they needed to change up Uncle Ben’s death and other bits of canon, just to make it different from Raimi’s version.)
Bonus points: this is the best Spidey’s costume has ever looked in film. I hope Sony never changes the suit again (unless they do the black costume for a movie or two).
