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.
But wait! There’s more!
Although Multiplex will be ending soon, thanks to readers like you on Patreon, the Multiplex 10 will stay open for business! I’ll be posting bonus comics from future print collections, Multiplex Movie Review strips, updates on the upcoming Multiplex animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.
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!

Heads up, completists. I have a three page story in the new Mae Volume One TPB from Dark Horse Comics. This is the same one I co-wrote (with Mae creator Gene Ha) and as a thank-you for backers of its original Kickstarter edition — and Dark Horse’s editors decided to include the story in the back matter of this new collection, along with a bunch of other short stories by other great creators.
BUT… I have a story in a Dark Horse-published book! That’s cool!
If you’re not familiar with Mae, it’s an all-ages adventure comic by Gene Ha (Top Ten and a billion other comics). Here’s the official Dark Horse synopsis:
When she was just a girl, Abbie discovered a portal to a fantasy world and has since had great adventures there: defeating horrible monsters, power-mad scientists, and evil nobles. But when she turned twenty-one it all came apart and she decided to return home. Her sister, Mae, had no idea what happened to Abbie all this time, and Abbie’s tales are too hard to believe—that is, until the monsters and other terrible creatures start to cross over to our world . . . Collects issues #1–#6.
I highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun. You can learn more about Mae Volume One on Amazon.
