Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #689: Bad Brains
Bad Taste is, of course, one of Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson's early, schlock horror films.
In case you missed the note above the strip (or don't read the strip at the website), I've put a bigger view of panel 4 as an extra, with a look at how Kurt did the Blogger's make-up, because some of you commented about it last week. A few shots of him looking normal, cut, and then replace him with this false head-and-shoulders kit, and there you go.
There would also need to be a little more padding (some of which you can see on top of his upper arm, to make the shoulder look higher than it is) to keep the shape of the Blogger's upper body around the frame. I couldn't show all of it, though, or you wouldn't be able to see how his head fits under it. This elongates his torso, of course, but all that is off-frame in the shots where his head was smashed in (and split in two, sort of unintentionally). As always, I try to make the effects somewhat feasible — even if the unlimited amount of supplies and money towards creating the effects that Kurt has is not.
Anyway. Stay tuned to the Deleted Scenes blog for an update about PayPal donations toward the Book 2 project. I'll start getting all that set up as soon as I finish typing this up, but it might not be done by the time some of you eager beavers read this. UPDATE: There we go. PayPal users can now contribute to the Multiplex: Book 2 Project via the Multiplex Store.

Kickstarter and Patreon supporters have already got their copies, but for the rest of youse: The Multiplex: Chapter 15 PDF eBook is now available!
Chapter 15 collects strips #311–338 from the Multiplex archives, plus three bonus comics not found in the archives — including “The Abyss Gazes Also,” an all-new twelve-page mini-epic. Chapter 15 costs $2.99.
Since Chapter 15 is done, you can also get all five Chapter eBooks for Book Three — Chapters 11–15 for $7.95. If you get the five eBook set, you’ll also get a PDF of the six-page “The Story So Far” sequence from the beginning of the upcoming print book (about one page of which is new art).
And remember — Chapter 11 is free!
Oh… Stealth announcement: the Multiplex Store is no more. If you need access to your digital files that you bought through that, just shoot me an e-mail. I will have something different set up by the time Book Three is available.
