Notes from the Manager
Don't think the Multiplex staff is going to get off this easy, after an accident like this. Stay tuned.
Once again, I am going to try for more than the usual two updates this week — and it will definitely happen. BUT… I don't know quite how many there will be. Three? Five? I don't know yet! I don't have a freelance job getting in the way this week — yet — so it's looking pretty good.
But there will definitely be at least two more — since they're already done — those two being bonus comics for the upcoming Chapter 6 eBook, which will go up over at the Deleted Scenes blog — so be sure to subscribe to the Multiplex Complete RSS feed (or at least to the Comics category feed) to keep up to date.
Time is running out on the Rhyme Bandits T-shirt pre-order! We're coming up short at the moment, so if you'd like to see this shirt get made, order it today!
(Thanks to Terrence Wiggins of Stagnant Pool Party for the help figuring out the title for this strip. It always helps to have a sounding board! Check out SPP if you like crazy-ass webcomics. When I archive-binged their relatively young strip, I had laughs a-plenty.)
UPDATE (5/31): The first of the two Chapter 6 bonus comics set for this week is up over at Deleted Scenes.

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:
