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.)

I just purchased a new shipping module for The Multiplex Store that gives me more flexibility in setting shipping and handling costs, so US customers will see much better rates on all (physical) items in the Multiplex Store. If any of you guys in the US balked at the shipping costs before, be sure to check them out now.
Books are $5 for the first one then $1.50 per additional book (rather than $5 per book), saving you $3.50 if you order two books. T-shirts are now $4 for the first shirt (any size) and $1.50 per additional shirt. And sketches and other artwork are also $4 for the first item, then $1 per additional item.
Rates for international customers are unchanged; I still use USPS First Class International’s rates as they are quoted by the USPS without any additional markup.
Now is as good as any to pick up that copy of Multiplex: There and Back Again!
