#369: Michael Bay’s Inferno

June 25, 2009

Notes from the Manager

Panel 3 refers to one of the bonus strips found in the first and as-yet-only Multiplex eBook (page 3, specifically), although Jason has undoubtedly said it many other times. Hopefully the second eBook will actually get done sometime this year, and then the next ones (followed by the print collection) won't be too far behind.

As for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (a.k.a. Transformers 2), I haven't seen it yet. And, with as dull as I felt the first one was,* I would happily not see this one, either, except that I have to, for The Triple Feature. sigh

* Brainless and loud I can handle if the action is good, but I don't even think Michael Bay could direct a good action scene to save his life — and yet so, so many of you seem to disagree.

UPDATE (6/26): Hey, everybody! I will be at Think Galacticon 2009 this Sunday at 10:30am, on the "Anarchism and the Superhero" panel (weird, I know) moderated by Terry Gant of Chicago's very own Third Coast Comics along with All Things Dork's Jeffrey Smith and noir/SF writer Michael Moreci.

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.
