#281: If I Don’t Like It, No One Can

September 15, 2008

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #280: Are You Ready for Some Football?

Lest anybody accuse me of putting words into Keith's mouth too asinine to have come from an actual human being, I was actually e-mailed those words almost verbatim from one of the readers coming into the strip for the first time from a relatively huge StumbleUpon spike. (Give #280 another review if you want to help spur it along! Positive or negative, they both send more readers my way. Which is why I think it's hilarious when people leave negative reviews.)

I think there will be three strips this week again, even though I'm trying to work back into the twice-a-week rhythm so I can work on the print collection more. If you prefer to read a new Multiplex three times a week, spread the word! Thumbs-up Multiplex at StumbleUpon, vote at TopWebComics, post links on Facebook or MySpace using the ShareThis button in the sidebar, write a review or interview me for your website or magazine — it all helps.

I'm making a good amount of money from Multiplex every month, but I'm still a ways off from being able to quit my day job and just work on comics full-time.

UPDATE: Check out a new interview with me over at Jackson Ferrell's This Week in Webcomics, in which we talk about Multiplex getting animated (someday, maybe, hopefully), the racially diverse cast, everybody's favorite supporting character Angie, and some other things.

UPDATE (9/17): I am a liar. This week's second update is pretty complicated, and I hope to get it all finished for Thursday, but that may not be possible: panel-wise, it's equivalent to about three normal-length strips.

If you're impatient, you can see the first 1/3 or so of it at TopWebComics. Otherwise, hang in there 'til Thursday, when — hopefully — the whole thing will be posted. Worst case scenario, I'll get the second 2/3 of it up as another vote incentive and post the rest of it on Friday.

When you see the whole thing, you'll probably understand why I didn't want to "officially" break it up into three separate strips. It changes the flow of the whole thing.

UPDATE (9/18): I've been afflicted with some bizarro mysterious (but mild) illness recently, so my productivity has shot downhill a bit. I have a doctor's appointment this morning to see what's wrong with my head this week, but #282 will be posted in its entirety tomorrow.

Leonard Nimoy (1931–2015)

Sunday, March 1, 2015

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:
