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!
But wait! There’s more!
Although Multiplex will be ending soon, thanks to readers like you on Patreon, the Multiplex 10 will stay open for business! I’ll be posting bonus comics from future print collections, Multiplex Movie Review strips, updates on the upcoming Multiplex animated short, and, of course, other non-Multiplex stuff.
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!

Heads up, completists. I have a three page story in the new Mae Volume One TPB from Dark Horse Comics. This is the same one I co-wrote (with Mae creator Gene Ha) and as a thank-you for backers of its original Kickstarter edition — and Dark Horse’s editors decided to include the story in the back matter of this new collection, along with a bunch of other short stories by other great creators.
BUT… I have a story in a Dark Horse-published book! That’s cool!
If you’re not familiar with Mae, it’s an all-ages adventure comic by Gene Ha (Top Ten and a billion other comics). Here’s the official Dark Horse synopsis:
When she was just a girl, Abbie discovered a portal to a fantasy world and has since had great adventures there: defeating horrible monsters, power-mad scientists, and evil nobles. But when she turned twenty-one it all came apart and she decided to return home. Her sister, Mae, had no idea what happened to Abbie all this time, and Abbie’s tales are too hard to believe—that is, until the monsters and other terrible creatures start to cross over to our world . . . Collects issues #1–#6.
I highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun. You can learn more about Mae Volume One on Amazon.
