This is going unstated, although I think it's obvious enough, but whatever Gretchen's original intent was (access to information, undoubtedly), Gretchen called in the favor Curtis owed her by having him give her a job at Flickhead Video.…

What happens with Allen remains to be seen (we'll find out soon), and of course we can't forget about Franklin, can we…? ;)

UPDATE: On The Triple Feature, we've got a little contest going — between ourselves, that is. Joe, Tom and I have a little Oscar pool set up (we discussed our picks for the Big Six on the latest show, as well as Confessions of a Shopaholic), and the two losers have to draw a guest strip for the winner… meaning no matter which one of us wins, you guys do!

Here's my ballot, so you can keep me honest! I'm terrible at these things, so it's pretty much a given that I'll be drawing a guest strip for somebody. sigh

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:
