#541: The Good Shepherd

December 23, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #534: It Is Your Destiny; #535: Movin’ On Up

Pretend this took place on Tuesday; some of you will note that a couple of these movies opened on Wednesday the 22nd. (A couple of them, like The King’s Speech, were out last weekend, too — but only in limited release. The Multiplex 10 didn’t have them yet.)

For you Monday/Thursday-only visitors, check out the two guest strips I posted earlier this week. Since guest strips don't show up in the Archives (via the nav links above and below the comic), you can use the calendar in the left sidebar… or, y’know, just use this link and this link. At least until I add them to the guest strips section properly, but it's sooo much wooork.

There will be another guest strip tomorrow. I'll be back on Monday, as usual.

Next week, in addition to the regularly-scheduled updates, we’ll have a couple more guest strips — at least one of them drawn by some guy named “Gordon McAlpin.” (People interested in submitting guest strips — or scripts — for consideration for next week, please drop me an e-mail!)

Merry Christmas, if that's your thing. Happy Pancha Ganapati, happy Kwanzaa, happy (belated) Winter Solistice, etc., etc. If you venture out into the wilderness to see a movie this weekend, drive safe, keep the phones off when you're in a movie theater, throw away your own trash, and leave the guns at home, please.

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.

— Gordon


* Speaking of Kickstarter projects, there will be an announcement about Multiplex: Book Three… very soon.
