Notes from the Manager
Thanks to Tom Brazelton of the recently ended Theater Hopper for today's guest strip. This one is actually sort of a passing of the torch strip for this character, Jimmy. If you read Theater Hopper regularly, you'll know him from that comic and possibly have seen Tom's recent announcement that he'll be joining the Multiplex 10 crew starting in Book 7, taking on a Shift Supervisor position. Tom's one of my best buds in webcomics, and I'm really happy to keep Jimmy alive for a little longer (mwah ha ha ha… kidding).
Whether or not you've read Theater Hopper, though, please check out Tom's recently launched Kickstarter project for Theater Hopper eBooks! It's a really funny strip, chock full of movie jokes (oh man, do you guys remember when I used to do movie jokes? memories…), and I even make a cameo in it once in a while. It's good times!
Oh, and sharp-eyed readers will notice that the URL in the copyright line for this doesn't actually say Theater Hopper — it says Midwestern Nice. What's Midwestern Nice?! I'm not telling. Mostly because I don't know. But I'm still not telling!
See you Thursday with one last guest strippy sort of thing. Book 7 starts on Monday.

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.
