#369: Michael Bay’s Inferno

June 25, 2009

Notes from the Manager

Panel 3 refers to one of the bonus strips found in the first and as-yet-only Multiplex eBook (page 3, specifically), although Jason has undoubtedly said it many other times. Hopefully the second eBook will actually get done sometime this year, and then the next ones (followed by the print collection) won't be too far behind.

As for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (a.k.a. Transformers 2), I haven't seen it yet. And, with as dull as I felt the first one was,* I would happily not see this one, either, except that I have to, for The Triple Feature. sigh

* Brainless and loud I can handle if the action is good, but I don't even think Michael Bay could direct a good action scene to save his life — and yet so, so many of you seem to disagree.

UPDATE (6/26): Hey, everybody! I will be at Think Galacticon 2009 this Sunday at 10:30am, on the "Anarchism and the Superhero" panel (weird, I know) moderated by Terry Gant of Chicago's very own Third Coast Comics along with All Things Dork's Jeffrey Smith and noir/SF writer Michael Moreci.

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:
