#782: Bearer of Bad News

February 22, 2013

Notes from the Manager

So Michael Bay announced that they were “bringing Megan Fox back into the family” for the new TMNT flick he’s producing, and Entertainment Weekly confirmed that was referring to Fox being cast as April in the flick. (Interesting that Bay used the abbreviation TMNT when it’s currently going by the title of Ninja Turtles, they’re supposedly maybe not mutants, and possibly not even teenagers anymore…? Whatever.)

For those not up on their Turtle lore, April’s occupation has been one of the big wildcards in the various incarnations: she was a computer programmer (like Franklin!) and Baxter Stockman’s assistant in the original Mirage comics, she was a reporter on the original animated series, and she’s also been the proprietor of an antique shop, dabbled in archaeology, and trained as a ninja.

Anyway. This TMNT-flavored Michael Bay is the Devil shirt has been in the store for some time, but this is its debut in the comic.

Multiplex 10: Hyrule Isn’t Going to Save Itself

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

If you’ve seen the rough animatic of the first scene from the animated short (which I posted both on Patreon and in the Kickstarter updates), you know that the episode begins before Jason has started working at the Multiplex 10.

So here’s one difference between the Multiplex 10 “universe” and Multiplex (comic strip) canon; Franklin started at the theater before Jason does. Also, the movie poster frames aren’t red anymore, because their vests are red, that was a really stupid decision, and I should have changed it ten years ago.

I feel bad that Franklin only has a small cameo in the first episode, especially since I already know who I want to voice him (hi, Terrence). Sadly, a lot of things that factor big in the comic won’t turn up in the first eleven minute episode, because it focuses on Kurt and Jason. But hopefully we’ll get to make more.

And even if we can’t, I’ll still want to make some mini-webisode sort of things and maybe a digital comic (e.g. Comixology Submit style)… and, of course, there’s also a tabletop/card game in development. So, like I’ve said, I’m not done with these characters yet.
