#912: Riders of Jerk

(Jason’s face in the last panel is what non-comics-reading friends of webcartoonists look like when we ask if they’ve read our comic.)

I haven’t watched much of the Riders of Berk TV series, myself. There are some interesting plots here and there, but the writing is mostly standard children’s TV fluff. It isn’t awful; I just have better things to do with my time.

The second update for the week will be late, again. My 35-page paper on the 1927 movie theater labor disputes in Minneapolis is done, and now I have a video project to do… But as I’ve said before, I’ll get caught up!

Multiplex 10: the web series is coming!

Friday, January 5, 2018

Thanks to 130 backers at the Indiegogo Second Chance campaign, we’ve raised a healthy budget for the Multiplex 10 animated short’s release, film festival submission fees, and other promotional expenses — including all-new animated videos featuring some of the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. In other words: Multiplex 10 is going to be a web series.

Now, the web series will be a little different from the animated short. Because the budget is much tighter, they’ll feature a limited cast (only Jason and Kurt at first) and only be a minute or two long. At least one of them will run between 2–3 minutes, because that’s what the second Indiegogo stretch goal was for, but not necessarily the first one. In other words, a little like the thank you video above.

Over time, and with enough funding, we’ll hopefully be able to bring back some of the other cast members from the short, as well. But this is also uncharted territory for me, so I need to start small. This all feels very much like the early days of the comic strip, which is really exciting to me.

You can help support the production of the web series (as well as the production of Multiplex bonus comics for the collected editions) by joining my Patreon, buying stuff from the Multiplex 10 Store, or renting or buying the Multiplex 10 short through Vimeo On Demand!
