#671: Tension

February 21, 2012

Notes from the Manager

If you ignored my note above and don't know what's going on, that's because this is part two of a six-part crossover between Dave Willis's Shortpacked! and Multiplex — which we're calling “Multipacked!” — so head over to Shortpacked! to read Part One.

Before anyone asks: yes, our webcomics take place in different cities. We're just gonna handwave that and say that in the Multiplex universe, there's a version of Shortpacked! in Chicago, and in the Shortpacked! universe, there's a version of Multiplex in San Francisco. (I had Jason turn up there once before, for a Shortpacked! guest comic that I did a little over a year ago, so I guess that's Multiplex canon now.)

The Shortpacked!/Multiplex crossover started on Monday over at Shortpacked!, and we'll alternate for the next few days — so Multiplex today (duh), SP! on Wednesday, Multiplex on Thursday, and then conclude on Friday with strips at both sites. (Dave's Friday comic will be first chronologically.) I'll see you tomorrow over at Shortpacked! and then back here on Thursday!

Dear New Visitors from Shortpacked!

If you're new to Multiplex, I generally recommend starting from the beginning, but as you all know, the first year or two of a long-running webcomic are rarely indicative of its eventual quality, so if you'd rather get a feel for what the strip evolves into, maybe start at Chapter 26 instead.

Multiplex 10: the web series is coming!

Friday, January 5, 2018

Thanks to 130 backers at the Indiegogo Second Chance campaign, we’ve raised a healthy budget for the Multiplex 10 animated short’s release, film festival submission fees, and other promotional expenses — including all-new animated videos featuring some of the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. In other words: Multiplex 10 is going to be a web series.

Now, the web series will be a little different from the animated short. Because the budget is much tighter, they’ll feature a limited cast (only Jason and Kurt at first) and only be a minute or two long. At least one of them will run between 2–3 minutes, because that’s what the second Indiegogo stretch goal was for, but not necessarily the first one. In other words, a little like the thank you video above.

Over time, and with enough funding, we’ll hopefully be able to bring back some of the other cast members from the short, as well. But this is also uncharted territory for me, so I need to start small. This all feels very much like the early days of the comic strip, which is really exciting to me.

You can help support the production of the web series (as well as the production of Multiplex bonus comics for the collected editions) by joining my Patreon, buying stuff from the Multiplex 10 Store, or renting or buying the Multiplex 10 short through Vimeo On Demand!
