Notes from the Manager
Here’s the trailer for Tales of the Night, the Michel Ocelot film that Jason mentions:
You can get links to the trailers for the other films, including The Warriors, via at the Patio Theater Events page.
You can read more about the partnership between the Patio and the Chicago Cinema Society at DNAinfo.com. Short version, they’re helping bring a broader range of programming to the Patio, which has been mainly a second run (or late first run) theater since it reopened. This makes the Patio much more of a “destination” theater than it was before, I think, and should therefore expand its customer base farther outside of Portage Park than it had been before.
This strip isn’t just Chicago movie theater news wankery, though; without getting into spoilers, you can probably imagine how — given Multiplex’s new focus on the cast as movie theater managers — this is… relevant.
EDIT: Oh, and Odd Obsession is an independently owned and run Chicago video store that specializes in hard to find movies of all kinds. If you’re a movie buff in the Chicago area, do yourself a favor and check it out.
See you Monday!
How much Multiplex can you handle?!
In addition to the warm, soothing feeling of being a patron of the fine art of comic strippery, Patrons get access to free Multiplex eBooks, sneak previews of upcoming comics and other behind the scenes peeks, sketch giveaways, and more!

Multiplex: Chapter 14 is now available! If you’re a Kickstarter or Patreon backer, you have already been notified about this, but for those of you who aren’t, you can get it from Gumroad superfast, or you can get it from the Multiplex Store. Either way supports the continued creation of Multiplex.
In Multiplex: Chapter 14, Jason reads a book while the Flickhead and Multiplex crews play more video games. This is some heavy shit here, broh! This volume collects strips #287–310 from the Multiplex archives, plus five bonus comics not found online!
I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I hope to continue making new Multiplex comics for these collections at about the same pace as the regular comic (two a week) over at Patreon, and then releasing the eBook collections with this material every 4–6 weeks or so. (And then funding a print collection through Kickstarter after all of the bonus material is finished — rather than funding the creation of that new material with the Kickstarter as I’ve done for the first three books.)
So just because the strip will be finished doesn’t mean Multiplex is going to disappear entirely!
