#515: Up and At ’Em

September 27, 2010

Bleeding Cool ran a brief (three-question) interview with me on Friday, in case you missed it. It's actually the second time Dale Lazarov put me through his All Is Full of Linky Love interview stylings (the first time being when it ran at Talk About Comics a long time ago), but like I told him, if he asked me the same questions in another year, they'd be different answers.

I need just TWO pre-orders for the Michael Bay is the Devil T-shirt before I can print those puppies up. They're $17.99 now, but they'll be going up to $19.99 after the pre-order (I based the original $17.99 pricing on an rough guess, but had to revise the finished price after getting a quote; it's a four-color design, don't forget). If you're a lady or a plus-sized (XXL and up) dude, it's a very good idea to pre-order, because I can't seem to get rid of them in the other shirt designs, so the odds of me ordering those sizes is slim!

EDIT: I just got those last two, so the Michael Bay shirt is GO. Get your orders in now at the pre-order pricing, though. The price will go up to $19.99 on October 4th — and I won't be ordering many extra Men's XXL and up or Ladies sizes.

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:
