#583: Creatures’ Features

April 25, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #582: Gateway to Horror

The obvious response to this — and don't think Jason wouldn't have brought it up — is that the audience's imagination is scarier than anything Hollywood can throw at you, but that only works to some extent. There's only so much a movie can avoid showing you before it gets ridiculous: you can't shoot around everything. Try imagining a Jaws that absolutely never showed a shark. (Also, bear in mind this strip is specifically talking about creature design, not gore, which doesn't need to be explicit to be effective.)

So, anyway… bit of announcement today. Some of you may have already noticed the link graphic at the top late last week, but in case you didn't: Multiplex is now part of the Blank Label Comics collective, along with Dave Willis's Shortpacked, Kel McDonald of Sorcery 101 and Spike's Templar, Arizona. If you don't already read them, buy their books! (Or, you know, read them online.)

Unrelated note: I kinda want to make Kurt's T-shirt.

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!
