#821: Coming Soon

July 1, 2013

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #820: Moving On

I lied last week, I guess. This is sort of an epilogue to the last arc and a hint at Things To Come.

This is the first time it’s been mentioned in the strip, but those of you who pay attention to the Cast pages know that Feature Cinemas is the chain the Multiplex 10 belongs to. We’ll be meeting a lot more people from other theaters (and home office) in Book Seven.

See you later this week! I’m a little tied up with my summer assistantship to do three this week, I think — and I really need to finish off Book Two, which is so far behind schedule I hate myself. So it’ll probably be Thursday. Anyway, we’ll check back in with Kurt and Jason’s film series then.

UPDATE (7/3): With the upcoming iPhone app including Notes from the Managers, as well, I thought I should try to keep them a little more strip-centric from now on, so I’ve moved some paragraphs about my Amazon.com affiliate link woes over to a Deleted Scenes post. If you don’t get those in your RSS feed, update your address to the current Multiplex Complete RSS feed address!

For you website visitors (thank you for the ad revenue!), you’ll still be able to see me talk about irrelevant shit like that in Deleted Scenes posts right here on the front page of the website — it’ll just be a few inches lower: I’ve added the most recent Deleted Scenes post to the homepage, as well. (I’ve wanted to do that forever, but only recently learned how I could force the movie trailer embeds to fit within the smaller space on the homepage and not break the layout. Hooray for learning.)

The archive pages will still just have headlines, because I don’t like to slow down the page load times for you guys who go on long archive binges.

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:
