Notes from the Manager
I've been tied up with studying for the GRE (and taking it) and bill-paying freelance work so unfortunately I didn't finish today's comic. Sorry!
I hate posting unfinished strips, but I hate blowing deadlines more — and since I knew at least a few of you would be interested in seeing these, rather than just wait until it was finished (which could be late tomorrow night or even Friday), I thought I might post the pencils for it instead for now.
This stuff was really intended solely for me to ink over — hence the X's where blacks should be, the inconsistent darkness of the lines, and the lack of blood all over Angie 2's face (I do most of the blood at the toning stage, so I don't draw it out).
Hey, at least now those of you who follow me on Twitter and have to put up with me whining about how much worse my inking is than my pencils know what I'm talking about.
I'll try to get back on track next week…
On the bright side, my studying paid off: my (tentative) scores put me in approximately the 98th percentile and 65th percentile for the Verbal and Math sections, respectively. That means I'm hella smart at words and sorta decent at numbers. (I won't have my Analytical Writing results for a while.)
UPDATE (12/16): I've finally updated the image with an inked and toned version. Thanks so much to Axur Eneas for the toning assist. He did a much better job than I ever do, so I had to make it a little worse to match my stuff. (If you didn't see it, Axur did a fantastic guest strip for Multiplex some time ago.)

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.
