#837: The End of Summer

August 22, 2013

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #465: Pretty Good Bet; #466: Flattery Will Get You Everywhere

Another sort-of-related strip would be #207½ (“Just Press Play”) from the Chapter 10 eBook (and Book Two). Becky and Franklin never spent a lot of screen time together, but since they’re both projectionists and debatably the two most book-smart characters in the comic (Becky being a science nerd and Franklin being a programmer), I’ve always felt they would have had a solid rapport.

This strip takes its title from the Yasujiro Ozu film of the same name, one of my favorite directors, whose work is very often imbued with melancholy. (It’s not one of my favorites, but the title fit. The film’s plot has nothing to do with anything, though)

Just saying this now: Monday’s comic will be up in the afternoon/early evening, most likely, as I’m going to be away from a proper computer most of the weekend.

We’ll have at least one more strip on Becky’s last day next week. I’ll see you then!

Multiplex 10: Good Talk

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Angie, like Franklin, is another significant character from Multiplex who only gets a brief cameo in the pilot episode. So here she is in a Multiplex 10 comic strip.

At nearly $13,250 (as I write this), we’re allllllmost at 90% funding with EIGHT DAYS to go. We need your support to make this pilot happen — and to help distribute it so that we can make more than just one episode! Check out the Multiplex 10 Kickstarter project page today! (Please.)

Also, in case you missed it, there were a couple of new… uh, I’m not sure how to refer to them. “Promo comics,” I guess? The Multiplex 10 versions of Melissa & Becky and Franklin introduce themselves and talk about the animated short and one of the Kickstarter milestones, like the Kurt & Jason one I posted here a while ago. I posted those around the social medias and the separate, Multiplex 10-specific site, which some of you may not know about.
