#967: Back to the Well, Part One

November 14, 2014

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #940: You Mean, I Have to Choose?; #941: The Longer Version; #942: Minority Report, Part One

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is out on Blu-ray as of Tuesday, but Multiplex is still back in August or so, when the movie was just about to leave theaters (obviously).

Anyway. Sharp-eyed observers will notice that the strip is now in Chapter 36. After a lot of back and forth over the last several weeks, I decided to break Chapter 35 after #947, making this somewhere in the middle of Chapter 36. As the story progresses, I’ll have to decide whether Book Seven is going to just be one massive book or if Chapters 31–36 (or 37) end up being two books and the whole series runs for ten books rather than nine. It doesn’t entirely matter, really: the broad strokes of these last three or four years are already figured out, whether that’s going to get printed… hopefully, eventually… as two or three books.

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!
