Notes from the Manager
By request, Kurt's T-shirt from #681 has been added to the Multiplex Store.
Becky's post-breakup-depression (for those of you who don't check the Related Strips when you don't understand everything in a comic) is referring to Jay, which happened shortly before she sort of uncharacteristically helped Kurt with one of his pranks near the end of Book 4.
Becky was in booth when the gang screened Night of the Living Dead (in #606), but you see her in panel 8, and you can guess that she caught most of it.
One brief Kickstarter-related note: in just three days, you guys have pledged over $6000. Holy cow. That's 40% of the goal to get Book 2 printed in three days. You guys rock.
See you Monday!
By the way, I'll be at Emerald City Comicon, like it says at the left. So you Seattleites should swing by Booth 307, where I'll be set up with Angela Melick of Wasted Talent and my good friend Tom Brazelton of Theater Hopper, a stone's throw away from the rest of Blank Label Comics. (I'd already signed up for the other table before I joined Blank Label.)
I'll have copies of Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show, original art from the zombie arc, and a few other things (but no T-shirts, since I only do print-on-demand shirts now). And I'll be doing sketches, as always. Because I like drawering.

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:
