#513: So Serious

September 20, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #512: Say It, Don’t Spray It

Thank you to everybody who made the Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show release party at Third Coast Comics a great time!

Before Thursday rolls around, the book will be officially on sale, but books are actually already shipping! The last batch of Kickstarter books (and some pre-orders) will be shipping TODAY.

Today and tomorrow, I'll be working on getting all of the Artist's Edition sketches drawn (I will probably share a couple of them with you at the Deleted Scenes blog, since I haven't had time to draw or write anything else in the past week to make it more interesting over there).

I hope to get the promised Black Dynamite review and a review of The Town up over there this week, so keep checking back. Short version of The Town: it's a terrific crime flick. Less heavy or thought-provoking than Gone Baby Gone by far, but smart, funny, and very, very tense in spots, with three great robberies anchoring the film.

Pre-orders for the Michael Bay is the Devil T-shirt are still going! We are about 10 shirts shy of printing up the shirts — so it's moving along, but it's not a sure thing yet. If we don't get them by October 4th, I'll be forced to cancel the orders and refund everybody. And that would make me sad, because I totally want one of these, too.

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:
