#684: You Do It to Yourself

The title is a reference to "Just" by Radiohead, naturally.

And if watch Community, you already know this, but if you don't, the "cool. cool cool cool" line is a nod to one of the best sitcoms going right now.

Aaand you can read a little more about the Teenage Mutant Alien Ninja Turtles "controversy" over at Coming Soon. It's worth noting that Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman is working on the film along with director Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles), and that there's really no telling how much Michael Bay is even involved. (The Transformers auteur is producing the Turtles film.)

The film is currently just titled Ninja Turtles, incidentally. According to Bay, that was Paramount's call.

One final reminder: I will be at Emerald City Comicon this weekend. In fact, by the time you read this, I'll probably be on my way there. So if you're headed there as well, be sure to stop by Booth 307, where I'll be set up with Angela Melick of Wasted Talent and my good friend Tom Brazelton of Theater Hopper, a stone's throw away from the rest of Blank Label Comics.

See you Monday!

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.

* Speaking of Kickstarter projects, there will be an announcement about Multiplex: Book Three… very soon.
