Notes from the Manager
You didn't miss Friday's bonus update, did you? Because there was a bonus update on Friday.
UPDATE: Multiplex Version 3.0 has launched. And you're looking at it.
Hopefully you like the changes. Please poke around, or just look at the Site Map to see what's new. Please let me know if you see any broken links or whatever!
The biggest changes that affect YOU are (1) the new Chapter/Book divisions in the archives, and (2) the bigger strips.
The Chapters, of course, correspond to the eBooks and the chapters from the upcoming print collection (and books 2, 3, and 4, as well — we're nearing the end of Book 4 at this point).
Online Editions of the eBooks are highlighted where those exist.
The new strips are now 700px wide (they were 600px before). I've also increased the size of all the strips in Book 4 (#339 to now) to 700px wide, so feel free to go back and see what tiny details you missed the first time around! ;)
Additionally, the Cast page and Guest Strips section have been reorganized, and I've added both a Fan Art section and an "Other Comics by Gordon" section for stuff I've done that doesn't really belong anywhere. (Non-Multiplex or Stripped Books stuff.)
UPDATE: It looks like we have a few issues with IE6 and IE7 to work out. Of course, if you use either of those, you could also just upgrade to a modern browser.
UPDATE: The IE6/7 issues should be mostly fixed. You won't be getting quite the same, polished experience every other internet surfer gets, but… well, you know, upgrade that browser. :)
Thursday's strip will be late! Now is as good a time to point out that there is now a "Twitter Is Stupid" thingy in the left sidebar. I will mention minor things like strips being late over there (and not so much here) in the future — not that I am late with the strip very often! Because I am not! So no grief will be taken from you, thank you very much!
Anyway, so, you know, if I'm supposed to have a strip up but don't (before like 8AM), looky at mah Twittaz.
How much Multiplex can you handle?!
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!

Thank you very much for the outpouring of kind words since last Friday. It meant a lot to me, and I’m happy to say that I have great news: things may not be quite so bleak as I thought last week.
For some background, since I haven’t shared much of this publicly, my cat Punk very nearly died in September from a urinary tract infection. A slew of medicines turned things around after a rough couple of weeks, and he had two great weeks but then relapsed. As it turned out, the strain of infection he had was resistant to the antibiotics he was on, so he had to go on some new meds.
Because he wasn’t back at 100% (as close to 100% as an 18 year old cat with three chronic diseases gets, anyway), the recovery this time was very, very hard on him. Punk had to be taken to the emergency room last Wednesday evening, then he wasn’t handling the pain medication they prescribed very well — or eating, except when I would spoon feed him baby food — so I was… in a very bad headspace last week.
With non-stop attention and some tweaks to his medication dosages, he began improving steadily on Friday evening, started to eat on his own and seek out my company on Saturday, and he even meowed for the first time in two weeks on Sunday.
If this keeps up, this will be the third time he’s cheated death (last month, and a bout with pancreatitis a couple of years ago), but I’m still nervous about him relapsing yet again. There’s also the very real possibility that there is something else going on behind all his recent troubles…
But… he’s a tough little guy, and he’s had a great couple of days,which is very encouraging. He has even managed to get back to work on the strip with me (pictured above!), and we’ll hopefully be able to keep at it.
The Multiplex update schedule may be a little erratic for the next couple of months. If that happens, hopefully it will be because I need more time to finish my MFA thesis, not another downturn in Punk’s health. Either way, thank you for reading, and thank you for all your support — financial, emotional, and… egotistical?
