Notes from the Manager
Obviously, it was about the RoboCop remake, the trailer for which is… right here:
One week of grad school down, 13-ish to go (this semester). If any of my drawing students, fellow grad students, or professors just read this strip after looking up Multiplex because I mentioned it in class, I just want to say, I’m sorry.
UPDATE: I hadn’t planned on doing this, but since a couple of people have asked for Jason’s “Movie Logo” T-shirt to become a real thing, so I’ve added it to the Multiplex Store. At this point, it’s just 1’s and 0’s on a computer, so the rest is up to you! Make it real by buying one today!

Multiplex News & Updates
Bonus comics, drawings, and
other awesome stuff
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.
