Guest strip by Howie Noel (Tara Normal)

August 4, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Thanks to Howie Noel of the awesome sci-fi mystery action romance Tara Normal for today's Rise of the Planet of the Apes-themed guest strip! Who's going to go see that movie this week? I'm way behind on movies and will probably try to finally see Captain America instead, but I think Rise looks pretty fun.

Thanks again to all of the other cartoonists who helped me out with guest strips in my time of need. Until I manage to get them added to the Guest Strips second, you can get to them with the calendar menu in the left sidebar. There will be at least one more guest strip in the near future, by a good friend of mine, but I'll be trying to get caught up again on my own personal updates — while also gearing up for heading straight back to Sweet Home Chicago for the 2011 Chicago Comicon next weekend.

No rest for the weary, right?

See you tomorrow with my own second update for the week.

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:
