Multiplex - a comic strip about life at the movies

Book 2 Update and a bonus comic from Book 3

Multiplex: There and Back Again (Book 2) is being proofread, and I’m doing other technical stuff, getting the files ready for print. I’m also waiting to hear back from my distributor about various things before deciding on a final print run. Once I have the print run determined, I can settle on a printer and figure out when the book will be available — hopefully late summer or early fall, but… we’ll see. I’ll let you know as soon as I do!

As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, I’m frustrated that the book is running late. I had hoped that the new content would have been done at the end of the summer, so my “free time” during the school year could be used to do the various rewards, and I could get a Book 3 Kickstarter going for the summer. Obviously, that didn’t happen, and I intend to finish everything related to the Book 2 Kickstarter project before launch a Book 3 Kickstarter project — but I still hope to get the next book started much, much sooner — so that I can get it out in under a year.

I shouldn’t need as much time with Book 3, because it will have fewer bonus comics than Books 1 and 2 did — roughly 20. Books 1 & 2 had about 30 bonus strips, plus Book 1’s Prequel story. Anyway, last weekend, I ended up taking a look at what Book 3 will entail and got sidetracked with thinking about what I would do in the bonus comics for the first chapter in Book 3 (a.k.a. Chapter 11). Aaaaand since I was enjoying myself, I decided to do this strip, despite having other things I should be working on (like graduate school stuff)…

Anyway, the strip below is set prior to Multiplex #217, making it the first strip in the book.

  1. You didn’t go for any jokes about the robotic eyeball which was totally the star of that movie. I also love the the lead actress in that film plays a character whose main feature is that she looks exactly like Kete Beckinsale in Underworld Rise of the Lycans.

    There’s also an exploding bunny Kurt, you can’t for get that.

    Doomsday is monstrously dumb (you can’t have a half naked cannibal tribe in Scotland, they would freeze to death by mid November) but it has a certain……..charm. I’m way more fond of Marshall’s following film Centurion. You’ve got Michael Fassbender, David Morrissey and Liam Cunningham as part of a group of Roman Soldiers who get stuck in Pictish territory and are being hunted by a mad with revenge warrior woman. It is quite daft at times, kind of like all of that director’s work, but weirdly enjoyable.
