Tune in LIVE to the Triple Feature tonight at 9:00 PM Central, to hear Tom, Joe and I shoot the shit about Monsters vs. Aliens and probably some other stuff. If you've always wanted to ask the three of us a question, we regularly answer reader/listener questions on the show — just shoot us an e-mail at group (at) thetriplefeature.com.

If you can't make it for the live recording, don't forget that you can always download the show as a podcast through iTunes — it's free, and believe me, you get what you pay for with the three of us. 100% professionals, we are. ahem

Anyway.

So! We have a bit of a contest — a Multiplex/Night Projectionist Give-away! Those of you who have been paying attention noticed the copy of The Night Projectionst #1 in the last few strips, and writer Robert Heske has been kind enough to sign three copies for me to give to three lucky winners. (You'll also get a free copy of the Multiplex eBook: HD Edition #1 not signed by anybody, but that's really old, so whatever.)

But I couldn't just give it away to three random people, no. Drawing inspiration from today's Multiplex strip, I want you to go to the Multiplex Forum (sign up if you have to) and share the story of your Creepiest Date Ever. You can use the term "creepy" loosely, if you want — just make it an interesting story. The three best stories before NEXT MONDAY will get copies of the comic(s). See additional rules in the forum post.

(If you don't win, don't feel bad — you can still read The Night Projectionist Noir online every week.)

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:
