Notes from the Manager
Another single-panel this time, because I need a Labor Day weekend, just like you guys. I’ll make up for it later this week, promise. I just didn’t have time to finish the longer update I’d started.
Jason’s “poster” and Quint’s “Open Letter to FOX” at Ain’t It Cool News pretty much sum up my opinion of how FOX has handled the release of this film. Even if FOX honestly thought the movie sucked and/or would deeply offend all the morons in the US (62,040,610 of them, last time our country counted), when was the last time that stopped a Hollywood studio from promoting a movie?! Practically everybody I know has seen Office Space five or six times — of course some of them would check out Idiocracy… if they knew it existed!
UPDATE (from the future): A trailer made its way to the internet (long, long after the film hit video), and I thought I’d include it for people who aren’t familiar with the film:

We’ve just hit the second milestone goal ($600)!
What this means is, once my patrons’ accounts are charged next (around the first of next month), MULTIPLEX WILL BE COMPLETELY READER-SUPPORTED AND DEVOID OF THOSE ANNOYING THIRD PARTY ADS. Thank you so incredibly much to all of the Patreon backers and anyone else who spread the word about the project (or Multiplex, really)!
Once I can roll out the reworked site, strip images will be significantly larger (most likely 900px wide), yet the website should still load a bit faster. My programmer Jelly and I are looking at making the site both responsive and retina-friendly at the same time, but those may take a while longer… so no promises for those just yet.
I would just yank the ads now, because I hate them, except that would screw up the site layout. Removing them is not quite as simple as it might seem, I’m afraid, and will involve a bit of a redesign, as I mention in the Milestone Goals sidebar over at Patreon.
When we reach the NEXT milestone goal ($1000): I will post (at least) four Multiplex Movie Reviews or other bonus comics per month here for patrons! So it will be allllmost like three strips per week.
