Multiplex is an online comic about a fictitious movie theater Multiplex 10 Cinemas located in a fictional suburb of Chicago. The comic is full of drama, so way full of drama with a cast of characters that will keep you coming back for more.

The following is taken directly from their information page and instead of trying to paraphase it I figured I would just give it to you as is since it is written so well anyway. “Multiplex is a twice-weekly online comic about the movie-loving and customer-weary staff of your local movie theater. It is written and illustrated by Gordon McAlpin. It has been running continuously since July, 2006, and serves over 55,000 unique visitors per month (to the tune of 225,000 pageviews per month).” No matter what standard you set for comics online this one is good by any of those standards. I don’t care what anyone might say otherwise.

Even though this comic is supposed to be updated every Monday and Friday the author will many times, more times then not, make more posts then that a week. Depending on what ever story arc is being worked on it can be three times a week. I think one week there were even 4 updates. I find myself constantly going to the site to see if there is anything new or not. It really is that good. Hey I wouldn’t give it a good review if it wasn’t any good :P

Anyway, the main characters are always giving management some kind of trouble and some of the trouble makers are even in management. You have practical jokers, Mr. movie index persons, sluts, musicians, just so many that you really can’t list them all meaningfully. You have romance, drama and all sorts of comedy from people with definitely too much time on their hands and who have watched way to many movies. hehe, like I can talk, I have over 800 DVDs on my shelves

If you really want to be entertained and be drawn into a story then you really should check out the antics that are going on over at Multiplex – a comic strip about life at the movies.
