Since I promised a Wednesday strip, here's a Wednesday strip — but unfortunately a last-minute freelance gig added to the usual Thanksgiving family obligations are going to get in the way of having a third strip up this week. Hopefully three next week. Sorry!

(11/26 UPDATE: You can see a new hand-drawn Multiplex strip — or the pencils, anyway — over at the Deleted Scenes blog, though!)

As many of you know, I'm back to looking for freelance work to make up for the time spent working on Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show full-time earlier this year (which was, y'know, all of my living expenses). It's sort of annoying to be home spending so much time looking for paying work when I could be drawing more comics instead, but since the comics don't pay all my bills, I gotta look for work that does. :(

That said, if you want to pick up the book or a T-shirt in the near future, I will be having a sale running from Black Friday through Cyber Monday… Stop by the store on Friday to see what's up!

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.
