#289: Personal Religulosity, Part Three

This strip takes place in an as-yet-unnamed 24-hour, ’50s-themed diner that just-so-happens to be decorated with movie posters from the decade. (I couldn’t resist.) It’s located down the strip mall from the Multiplex 10 and Flickhead Video, and will probably show up again sooner or later.

I’ve been really taken aback by the enthusiastic response to this story arc, particularly from my Christian readership. I hope this last installment of the three-parter didn’t ruin everything. Anyway, as always, thank you for reading.

The voting round continues through October 14th for Frumph.net’s Webcomics Readers Choice Awards! Angie has been nominated for (Best) Supporting Character, which is really cool in and of itself — but If she wins, I will do a bonus strip “acceptance speech”! She’s currently in the lead, but if you haven’t voted yet, be sure to help keep her there!

(Oh, and by the way, the desktop picture featuring Sunny as Tinker Bell that — previously available only as a vote incentive — has been added to the Extras page.)

UPDATE (10/11): A rather lengthy interview with me has gone up at ComixTalk. It's my second interview with them; the first was back in 2006, when Multiplex was still a new kid on the block.

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, and 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:
