If you want a better look at Kurt's T-shirt, vote for Multiplex over at TopWebComics.

Longtime readers will notice a somewhat familiar widget off to the right. This time around, I'd like to keep the amount of Kickstarter whoring in the Notes from the Manager to an absolute minimum, so just head over to this Deleted Scenes post to read more about that — or just go straight to the Multiplex: Book 2 Kickstarter page.

I do need to make this post long enough so that the widget doesn't break my layout, though…

Um. So yeah.

If you have any questions about the Kickstarter project, feel free to ask me about it over in the Deleted Scenes post or on the Kickstarter project page itself. I'm happy to answer them.

Damn. Need a little more.

Thank you for reading. You've been unbelieveably supportive of this silly little comic of mine for the last seven years, and I feel bad asking for your assistance yet… again… but hey. At least it's not something for nothing, right?

The Multiplex 10 is ten years old this month

Multiplex-10-Years

Ten years ago this month (on July 10th, 2005, to be specific), I posted two shitty looking comics to a corner of the Stripped Books website. At that point, I had no idea what I was in for: it was a gag strip that would quickly transform into a character-based comedy where people talk about movies — not just superficially about specific movies, but about how people watch and talk about movies of all kinds. The art got a little better, too.

The Multiplex characters took on a life of their own and ultimately turned this comic into an eleven- or twelve-year “epic” about the movie theater industry in one of the most interesting periods in its hundred-year history (and also this one jerk who kinda sorta becomes a slightly better person maybe if you squint your eyes and cock your head to the side a little).

Multiplex’s readership grew quickly in those first few years, thanks in very large part to a pair of guest strips on PvP and some well-placed Project Wonderful ad campaigns (thanks, Something Positive and Shortpacked!), and in the years since it has since retained a small but passionate readership that has supported me time and time again: the Patreon project of course, as well as two successful Kickstarter projects to fund two books I’m very proud of.*

Thank you for allowing me to tell this story.

Thank you for reading.
