#691: Lockdown, Part One

April 19, 2012

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #687: Insolence of the Dead; #688: Born for This; #689: Bad Brains; #690: Bad Taste

This (slightly but not very spoilery) clip/scene from Cabin in the Woods does pretty much the same thing (for slightly different reasons) as I'm doing here, but the lock-down scene is pretty common in zombie movies (and horror movies in general). Besides, I had this scene planned out way before I saw the movie!

Cabin is a fantastic movie, by the way. You should avoid spoilers, avoid reviews, avoid the trailer even — just see it. Especially if you're a Joss Whedon fan, even if you're not a big horror buff.

See you Monday!

FAIR WARNING: Do not talk Cabin spoilers below — even the stuff the trailer spoils. I will seriously delete that shit.

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.
