Notes from the Manager
Bit of an announcement today: Multiplex is now a part of the Boxcar Comics collective, home of Theater Hopper, Beaver & Steve, Rob & Elliot, Joe and Monkey, HOUSD, The Kenmore, 21 Dead Monkeys, Aikida, Hate Song, You'll Have That, and Bigger Than Cheeses. Another little switcheroo also brings Joe Dunn's Joe Loves Crappy Movies (replacing Mitch Clem and Joe's Coffee Achievers) and Mitch Clem's San Antonio Rock City (replacing his own Nothing Nice to Say) under the Boxcar banner. (Taste all the linky goodness!) That's right: JLCM, Theater Hopper, and Multiplex are all in Boxcar Comics now. Boo yah.
Honestly, I think these guys make some of the best comics available on the internet or otherwise, and it's an honor to be a part of the group.
(Oh, and the girl in the Accepted poster is Blake Lively from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, if you didn't know.)

David B’s Epileptic is one of my all-time favorite graphic novels. It’s an autobiographical story about Pierre-François Beauchard’s youth, focusing on his relationship with his epileptic brother Jean-Christophe. (I reviewed it nine years ago for Bookslut, if you’re curious about the book — but you should just buy it now.)
The comic has been adapted into a gorgeous animated movie with French title L’Ascension du Haut Mal by Christophe Gérard. (When it finds domestic distribution, it will almost certainly pick up the comic’s American title.)
A second, shorter teaser can be found at the film’s official website. They haven’t announced a release date yet, as far as I know, but I’ll be seeing it as soon as possible.
