Multiplex 10 Review Comic: Menashe (2017)

Apparently I had forgotten to upload this review comic, which was requested by our co-executive producer Avrom Honig. Menashe was a lovely character study, and you lament how much even “independent” films have started to shoehorn itself into Hollywood tropes in order to make a profit, you would do well to seek it out.

Just so you know, the next Multiplex 10 web series episode is coming… in a few weeks! It is by far the most complex one we’ve done to date, clocking in at over four minutes and featuring the largest cast of any of them. Notably, we’ll see the return of Becky (again played by Aiyanna Wade) and Franklin (played by Malcolm Ray from Channel Awesome).

Bear with us! It’s a hard one, but it’ll be worth it.

Multiplex 10 Review Comic: Ready Player One (2018)

The Sorry to Bother You animated review is moving forward a little slowly. I’ll have more to share on that review soon, but we’re hoping to have that ready within a week.

And we’re plugging away at the script for the first new web series episode, but it needs a little more time/work before it’s ready to get into production. Still no ETA on that at this time, but we’ll have behind the scenes updates for our Patreon and Kickstarter backers soon!

Multiplex 10 Review Comic: The Death of Stalin (2017)


The Death of Stalin review (2017)

This movie review comic is a slightly different format than the ones I’ve done in the past featuring Jason Classic (from the comic strip). Since I’m planning to collect the reviews of the Middle-Earth, Star Wars, and Harry Potter movies in a digital comic, I wanted to draw the pages in a more traditional comic book size, in hopes of submitting it to Comixology or otherwise offering it up for sale elsewhere. So I did this one to help figure out the format and build templates and such.

If you dig this review, there are more coming! And you can read them a little bit earlier than the unwashed masses by being one of our Patreon patrons…

Meet Kurt and Jason (again?)

We’re coming up on one week into the Multiplex 10: The Web Series Kickstarter, and fast approaching $7,000 pledged! That’s on track to hit the goal — but around holidays (like the 4th of July this Wednesday) things get pretty slow on the Internet, so

While anybody coming to this website very likely already knows these two hooligans, in order re-re-re-introduce Kurt and Jason to potential backers around the Internet, I made this comic. And I’ll be doing a few more as we get closer to the deadline. Who doesn’t like more Multiplex 10 comics? NOBODY, that’s who.

If you haven’t already, please consider backing the Multiplex 10 project as early as possible! The closer we get to deadline, the more important it is for us to look like we’re in striking distance of the goal. Because we do have a very good chance, if my past Kickstarter are any indication, and it would be fantastic to be able to fund longer or more complicated episodes, or more than just the five web series episodes and five reviews. The more money we raise, the better we can make Multiplex 10.

I’ve been avoiding talking too much about what this new batch of episodes will be like, because it’s always possible that as we get to the production date, we’ll scrap any ideas we have now and do something completely different. But there are two ideas I’m comfortable mentioning:

  • We’re definitely going to do a Becky/Melissa spotlight episode that’s more of a direct sequel to the animated short.
  • One of them will be a horror-themed episode that we hope to be able to submit to horror film festivals afterwards.

What do YOU want to see Multiplex 10 touch on in upcoming episodes? Any genres or upcoming movies releasing this fall/winter that you’d like to see us make fun of in a web series episode or review in a Movie Minutes episode? Let me know on Facebook, Twitter, or wherever.

The Multiplex 10 Indiegogo campaign has passed 150% of its funding goal!

Like Melissa and Kurt said in the comic, we’ve blown past the base goal for the Indiegogo Second Chance campaign, and we’ve passed the $3,000 stretch goal, as well—with a couple of days remaining in the funding period.

At this point, we’ve unlocked 4GB USB cards and a director’s commentary track for the short film, and we’re already getting the ball rolling for some all-new animated things. The exact format is up to the funding.

At the $4,000 stretch goal, we can definitely fund a 2–3 minute webisode. Less than that, and we’ll see what we can do… A minute? A handful of even shorter things? We’ll see! Whatever it is, it’ll be fun.

If you’re up for helping make that happen, head on over to the Indiegogo campaign page and pledge today! The campaign ends on FRIDAY NIGHT.
