#522: Man Up

October 21, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #521: Oops, I Did It Again

One thing I heard from people at the cons I've been at recently is a (mild) complaint about my "irregular" update schedule. So rather than post this as two separate strips, I figured I'd just post the whole thing on Thursday, instead. You can pretend the top three tiers are one strip, and the bottom three are another, though. It works the same either way, to me.

Speaking of conventions, as I mentioned on Monday, I am appearing at one last convention for the rest of the year (I think): Indiana natives, please stop by and visit me at the Indianapolis Comic Book & Toy Convention on Sunday, October 24th from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm. It'll be at the Ramada Inn I-70, located at East 6990 East 21st Street, in Indianapolis, Indiana. I'll have the book, some T-shirts, and of course I'll be doing sketches and that sort of thing, as well.

Unless I add something to my calendar soon, it looks like the next con I attend will be Emerald City in early March — and I've just added SPACE to my convention calendar for late March 2011, which means I won't be attending C2E2, despite it being in Chicago. (Crazy, I know!) For more information on any of these cons, click through the links in the Upcoming Events sidebar thingy.

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:
