Notes from the Manager
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.
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.
How much Multiplex can you handle?!

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!
