#535: Movin’ On Up

December 3, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #534: It Is Your Destiny

But wait, there's more! I did a quickie (that means poorly drawn) hand-drawn Multiplex comic and posted it as the new TopWebComics vote incentive, so give Multiplex your support and check it out! (It'll go up as a Deleted Scenes strip sooner or later, but… y'know. Multiplex needs your love.)

One last reminder for my Chicago-area readers: First Aid Comics' Crystal Lake Show this Saturday, December 4th, from 10am – 3pm. Me, a couple of other cartoonists, a few actors — and also Spider-Man and Santa Claus. I have a hunch Santa will have a longer line than me, and I'm okay with that. I'll have copies of the book and T-shirts for $15 apiece (what a bargain!), and of course I'll be happy to do sketches, too.

Admission is only $1 — or FREE if you bring a canned good or new toy.  Canned goods will go to the Wauconda-Island Lake Food Pantry, and toys will go to Toys for Tots, so don't cheap out on 'em! They're for a good cause!

If you can't make it out to the show but you want to get something from the Multiplex Store for someone you love — including but not limited to yourself — don't delay in getting your orders in before Christmas and/or whatever else you're celebrating around the winter solistice. I use Media Mail shipping for the books (it's the only way to keep the cost down on a book that weighs nearly 2 lbs.), which can occasionally be a liiittle slow, so I'd say you've got another week or so to safely order the book for arrival before the holiday!

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:
