Awesome Web Comics: Multiplex

While I love the idea of web comics, I rarely get into them. Thinking about the whys of that it usually comes down to a) being intimidated by a large back catalog b) not keeping track of one updating and c) I will always prefer reading something off a page rather than a screen. I bring all this up because one web comic, that I recently was turned on to by the good folks running the C2E2 twitter account, has made me love it despite facing all these obstacles and it's name is Multiplex.

Multiplex, written and illustrated by Gordon McAplin, follows the hilarious and dramatic lives of a movie theater's staff as they tackle everything from the summer blockbuster hordes to filling their down time with movie gags and "worthwhile" discussions. Catering to fans of film humor, office romances, and slacker bliss this strip has something for everyone and has a ton of enjoyment for fans of all of above (like myself.)

After diving into it last weekend, I am now up into the the 200s of the series 500+ strips. As soon I finished the collected edition (available from their online store here containing the first 100+ strips), I ran right to my computer and kept on going. The art, the characters, and the humor just won't let me go. Since your going to be trapped inside anyways via the coming snowpocalypse, I urge you to do yourself a favor and check out this phenomenal web comic via the links below. I am almost positive you won't regret it, and if you do well this blog and that web comic are free so you got what you paid for ;)
