#596: It’s for the Children!

Well, it looks like a last-minute freelance gig fell into my lap this week, and I'm planning on heading up to Minneapolis this weekend to find an apartment (since, y'know, I'm moving up there in August) — so, it's highly unlikely I'll get the three updates I had hoped to do. Maybe next week…

See you (sigh) on Thursday. Kurt will be in it, I promise. In fact, you can see proof (and a tease of what happens in the strip) by voting for Multiplex at TopWebComics.

Happy birthday to my brother Lawrence, who programmed the Multiplex website and the iPhone app!

The customers you see here are Bad Dad and Pumpkin, who first appeared in a bonus comic for the Chapter 1 eBook, although I've used them a number times since then. I've tweaked Pumpkin's character design a bit here to show that she's getting older. (I've actually made her taller gradually over the years, but this time, I've changed her model in more significant ways, like her hair and eyes.) 

So! Those of you who saw X-Men: First Class, what did you think? Worth seeing? Was it another X-Men 2 or another X-Men: The Last Stand…?

Multiplex 10: Hyrule Isn’t Going to Save Itself

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

If you’ve seen the rough animatic of the first scene from the animated short (which I posted both on Patreon and in the Kickstarter updates), you know that the episode begins before Jason has started working at the Multiplex 10.

So here’s one difference between the Multiplex 10 “universe” and Multiplex (comic strip) canon; Franklin started at the theater before Jason does. Also, the movie poster frames aren’t red anymore, because their vests are red, that was a really stupid decision, and I should have changed it ten years ago.

I feel bad that Franklin only has a small cameo in the first episode, especially since I already know who I want to voice him (hi, Terrence). Sadly, a lot of things that factor big in the comic won’t turn up in the first eleven minute episode, because it focuses on Kurt and Jason. But hopefully we’ll get to make more.

And even if we can’t, I’ll still want to make some mini-webisode sort of things and maybe a digital comic (e.g. Comixology Submit style)… and, of course, there’s also a tabletop/card game in development. So, like I’ve said, I’m not done with these characters yet.
