#561: A Night in the Patio, Part One

As long-time readers know, I hate missing deadlines, even when they're for more updates than normal, but I'm already falling behind on things thanks to my freelance (over-)workload this week. (On the other hand, it sure is nice to know I can afford to pay for things like rent and groceries this month.)

If you'd like to see me do the strip three times a week on a regular basis… buy the book (or anything else), make a small donation, or tell your friends about Multiplex. The book is for people who really truly madly deeply love the strip or just prefer books to websites (like me), and some of you don't. And I know a lot of you are poor movie theater employees, and that's totally cool, too. But whatever your circumstances, if you enjoy the strip and want more of it than just the two strips a week I'll be doing until… well, until the strip ends… please, pretty please, share Multiplex your friends. Sharing is free!

(You can also just send me a nice e-mail and I will love you for it, but I'd love you more if you got your friends to read the strip, too.)

See you on Friday, and thank you, as always, for reading.

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:
