Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #381: Flash Forward
The movie Jason and Kurt are watching is The Bride of Frankenstein, directed by James Whale (The Invisible Man, Frankenstein). Those of you who aren't horribly disappointed by Jason's smoking habit will find the rest of the Bride scene funny…
Gods and Monsters is a fictional (or fictionalized, at least) 1998 film about Whale, written and directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls and, yes, Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and 2), starring Ian McKellen as the filmmaker and Brendan Fraser as a handsome dumbass. Typecasting, yes. Anyway, it is a fantastic movie. The clip our boys are watching pops up in Gods and Monsters, which is why Jason brought it up. (Not that that's a terribly important point.)
So there you have it; after last week's self-contained movie joke, this is the real starting point for Book 6. I don't want to talk too much about my plans for this book, but I think this will be a lot of fun…

We’ve just hit the second milestone goal ($600)!
What this means is, once my patrons’ accounts are charged next (around the first of next month), MULTIPLEX WILL BE COMPLETELY READER-SUPPORTED AND DEVOID OF THOSE ANNOYING THIRD PARTY ADS. Thank you so incredibly much to all of the Patreon backers and anyone else who spread the word about the project (or Multiplex, really)!
Once I can roll out the reworked site, strip images will be significantly larger (most likely 900px wide), yet the website should still load a bit faster. My programmer Jelly and I are looking at making the site both responsive and retina-friendly at the same time, but those may take a while longer… so no promises for those just yet.
I would just yank the ads now, because I hate them, except that would screw up the site layout. Removing them is not quite as simple as it might seem, I’m afraid, and will involve a bit of a redesign, as I mention in the Milestone Goals sidebar over at Patreon.
When we reach the NEXT milestone goal ($1000): I will post (at least) four Multiplex Movie Reviews or other bonus comics per month here for patrons! So it will be allllmost like three strips per week.
