#500: You Light Up My Life

August 16, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #489: Toy Story 2; #490: Toy Story 3

So… #500, in a little over five years! (I always say this, but because of numerous bonus strips, I really passed 500 strips quite a while ago, but this milestone is still pretty neat.) As always, thank you very much for reading!

I may be broke as hell right now (and yes, that is a passive-aggressive solicitation for donations), but this has been one of the best years of my life, because I’ve actually been working on comics full-time.

On a related note, those of you waiting for the book only have a little while longer to wait. I will start taking pre-orders for Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show this Thursday, August 19 — just over a month away from the official release (September 22nd) date and just under a month away from the book release party/signing at Third Coast Comics in Chicago (September 18). It looks like I may have another webcomicker keeping me company at the release, but I'm not 100% sure about that yet, so I'll save the news for when it’s a little more solid.

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:
