Gordon McAlpin is the creator of Multiplex, a webcomic about the movies and the staff at a movie theater. We interviewed Gordon in 2006 but I thought it was a good time to catch up again. McAlpin is closing in on the 300th episode of Multiplex. He also blogs about movies at Movie Makeout and co-hosts the movie podcast The Triple Feature.

JUSTIFY MY HYPE
Have you checked out Gisele Legace's new webcomic yet? Menage a 3 is kind of like Porky's meets 3's Company.
I'll admit it -- I'm a big fan of Cat and Girl. Still this very recent one is one of my favorites.
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 BLOGS
I think I forgot to link to this - Sean Tevis is running for office in Kansas and he used an xkcd-style comic as part of his fundraising efforts.
Another jam comic from the guys at Boxcar comics.
I laughed at this webcomic featured on Joystiq's webcomic wrap-up. I'm sure the age of web-savvy cartoonists is still heavily skewed towards the twenties but I'll wager it's much more diverse than it was at the beginning of the naughts decade.
Theater Hopper by Tom Brazelton is a webcomic sort of, but not entirely about Tom, his wife Cami and their friends. The creator, Tom Brazelton (as opposed to his four-color alter ego) is coming up on six years of the webcomic. Neither fatherhood nor the Star Wars prequels have stopped the man from making fun at and with the movies. Over the last couple of months I interviewed Tom about the webcomic, his third print collection and other necessary pop culture topics.
Clay and Hampton Yount are the co-creators of the weekly-updated comedy comic Rob and Elliot. Clay is also the creator of the now on hiatus Cosmobear as well as the creator of "Bikini Frisbee Suicide Days", the former Saturday-only series at Sluggy Freelance.
Rob and Elliot is one of those "wacky roommates doing crazy random things" comics that is a lot stronger than its thin premise would initially suggest. As a comedy comic it scores on the most crucial criteria -- it's funny. And it does so through both the writing and the artwork.
Read on for my interview with the brothers Yount.
