Notes from the Manager
It's officially August in the Multiplex-verse now, so I've added the August Multiplex Examiner (previously a TopWebCmoics vote incentive) to link off of this page. The new TopWebComics incentive is an embiggened version of panel 1 from this strip.
Now that Multiplex and WOWIO have parted companies, you can now read the first (and only, so far) Multiplex eBook for FREE.
You can read it online in your web browser thanks to Issuu. You can even read it full-screen! No registration, no downloads, no hassles — just comics. Essentially, it's just a different (better, in my opinion) way of reading through the first 24 strips from the archives, and with added material as well.
You cannot download the free Online Edition, but the High Definition Edition is still available for purchase, for those hardcore fans who want the highest-quality reproduction possible.
UPDATE: Live in Chicago? Want to see Don Cheadle's Traitor early? HollywoodChicago is giving away tickets!
A FRIEND IN NEED: My fellow cartoonist and Triple Feature MC Tom Brazelton (of Theater Hopper fame, of course) is in dire need of a bit of help after a massive hard drive failure has potentially wiped out five years of comics. If you've got a few bucks to spare and don't want the baby Jesus to cry, please go help a brother out. (Details about the circumstances and how to help out behind the link.)

I was never a huge Star Trek fan, exactly. I love some of the early episodes, and I think Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is one of the greatest
science fiction movies of all time. I enjoyed Star Trek III and IV, too, for what they were. I read a bunch of the DC Comics Star Trek stuff at that time, because my brother bought them. And I watched a bit of the Next Generation and then fell off the wagon. Kirk and Spock were my Star Trek, and the Star Trek 2–4 “era” was its peak for me, warts and all, because that’s the “era” that really hooked me. And really, for me, it was all about Wrath of Khan.
In addition to playing Mr. Spock, of course, Leonard Nimoy did a lot of other things. He was on Mission: Impossible. He directed a few movies (Three Men and a Baby!). He was a photographer. He was the voice of Civilization IV. But one thing I really loved of his was Standby: Lights, Camera, Action, on Nickelodeon from 1982–1987, which provided a behind the scenes look at movies like Star Trek III, Return of the Jedi, 2010, and more. Nimoy hosted and occasionally interviewed guests like George Lucas. As a budding film nerd in the pre-Internet Dark Ages, behind the scenes specials like Standby: Lights, Camera, Action were hard to come by. I ate that show up.
Anyway, as you’re undoubtedly aware by now, Leonard Nimoy passed away on the 27th. As cartoonists do when they’re sad about these kinds of things, I drew a picture:
