#597: Exquisite Corpses

Dario Dargento's Suspiria is pretty well known, but I expect House isn't. Here's its trailer, courtesy the Criterion Collection, which issued a DVD and Blu-Ray of the 1977 horror-comedy last fall:

Both Suspiria and House have their shortcomings (Suspiria has pretty bad acting and the plot's really kind of stupid if you think about it objectively; House is just… well, you saw the trailer), but they both have excellent, frequently brilliant visuals, and Suspiria has amazing music (by Goblin), so they're certainly worth watching.

And also, now you know for certain: Norma suspended Kurt for three weeks. But since Multiplex is set in real time, and he was suspended on the same night Angie 2 was injured (May 20 — the day Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opened), that means he'll be back at the theater before you know it.

Thanks to Joel Watson of the webcomic HiJinks Ensue and the T-shirt mini-empire Sharksplode, I've found a T-shirt printing company that offers high-quality print-on-demand shirts at reasonable prices — so, I'm going to start rolling out a ton of T-shirt designs at the store over the next few weeks. Yes, I will finally be able to do character T-shirts (using DTG printing)! Yes, I will finally offer a Multiplex logo T-shirt again. If there's a Multiplex T-shirt you've been dying to have, let me know, and I'll see what I can do.

The first two new designs, however, are the Sarcastic T-shirt T-shirt seen in this very strip and an Ozu's the Boss? T-shirt.

I need to make sure that the printer has the other colors of shirts in stock before I can add the next couple designs. I'm also double-checking on the available of larger sizes (larger than 2XL) before I add those. I don't want to offer something they can't make, obviously!

UPDATE: They do indeed carry Men's sizes up to 5XL, so I've added those to the existing designs — and I've added four other shirts, as well: Multiplex logo shirts, Rhyme Bandits, I Believe in George Romero and Kurt's T-shirt from this strip, Rosebud Was My Dick.

Mae Volume One is now available… and I have a comic in it!

Friday, February 17, 2017

Heads up, completists. I have a three page story in the new Mae Volume One TPB from Dark Horse Comics. This is the same one I co-wrote (with Mae creator Gene Ha) and as a thank-you for backers of its original Kickstarter edition — and Dark Horse’s editors decided to include the story in the back matter of this new collection, along with a bunch of other short stories by other great creators.

BUT… I have a story in a Dark Horse-published book! That’s cool!

If you’re not familiar with Mae, it’s an all-ages adventure comic by Gene Ha (Top Ten and a billion other comics). Here’s the official Dark Horse synopsis:

When she was just a girl, Abbie discovered a portal to a fantasy world and has since had great adventures there: defeating horrible monsters, power-mad scientists, and evil nobles. But when she turned twenty-one it all came apart and she decided to return home. Her sister, Mae, had no idea what happened to Abbie all this time, and Abbie’s tales are too hard to believe—that is, until the monsters and other terrible creatures start to cross over to our world . . . Collects issues #1–#6.

I highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun. You can learn more about Mae Volume One on Amazon.
