Multiplex will be updating Monday/Wednesday/Friday for the rest of February.
The current TopWebComics incentive is the same as Wednesday, because it was busted all day. You can see a blown-up view of the last panel from #558!
REMINDER: Those of you in the Chicago area brave enough to venture out into the cold, I'll be taking part in The Comic Vault's Winter Con 2 this weekend. I'll be there from 12–2pm on Saturday. Alongside me will be Don Kramer (Wonder Woman); Dave Losso (The Great Sandwich Detective); and Brian J. Crowley (Hamster Rage).
Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show is now 15% off when purchased from the Multiplex store ($16.95 for the regular edition; $21.95 for the Artist's Edition).

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:
