#566: Do the Right Thing, Part One

February 28, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #565: What Price Victory?

In case you didn't watch the Oscars, yes, that's how this played out. How to Train Your Dragon lost to Toy Story 3 in Best Animated Feature, and John Powell's score for Dragon lost to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross's The Social Network score. At the very least, Dragon lost to two very solid nominees.

To the non-winning nominees in the Best Original Screenplay, Best Director or Best Picture categories, I'm afraid I can't say the same. The King's Speechwhich I enjoyed — had a perfectly contrived Oscarbait script, solid but unremarkable direction, and was a terrific film overall — but not one for the ages, like The Social Network or even the dark horse nominee, Winter's Bone. It was this year's Shakespeare in Love… and, apparently the Academy agreed. Alas.

If you watched the show, who were you rooting for that either got the Oscar or didn't?

SHIRTS ON SALE! I have a clearance sale on all of the T-shirts in my store, because… I'm trying to clear out of my stock. (That's what clearance sales are usually for, right?) I'm down the my last three sold out of Copyright shirts, and Popcorn and Breakfast Club are dirt cheap.

ORIGINAL ART FOR SALE! If you loved the Shortpacked! guest strip (guest starring Jason!) I did a while back, you can bid on the original art — plus a color print of the finished strip — over on eBay! The bidding on this item ends tomorrow (Tuesday)! Aaaand sold!

Multiplex: Chapter 14 is now available!

Multiplex_Ch14_eBook cover

Multiplex: Chapter 14 is now available! If you’re a Kickstarter or Patreon backer, you have already been notified about this, but for those of you who aren’t, you can get it from Gumroad superfast, or you can get it from the Multiplex Store. Either way supports the continued creation of Multiplex.

In Multiplex: Chapter 14, Jason reads a book while the Flickhead and Multiplex crews play more video games. This is some heavy shit here, broh! This volume collects strips #287–310 from the Multiplex archives, plus five bonus comics not found online!

I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I hope to continue making new Multiplex comics for these collections at about the same pace as the regular comic (two a week) over at Patreon, and then releasing the eBook collections with this material every 4–6 weeks or so. (And then funding a print collection through Kickstarter after all of the bonus material is finished — rather than funding the creation of that new material with the Kickstarter as I’ve done for the first three books.)

So just because the strip will be finished doesn’t mean Multiplex is going to disappear entirely!
