Guest Strip by Tom Brazelton (Theater Hopper)

March 7, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Thanks very much to Tom Brazelton of Theater Hopper — one of my best buds in webcomics — for helping me out with a guest strip. Tom and I have been in the Boxcar Comics collective together (in fact, he brought me into the fold, I think) and, of course, the late, lamented Triple Feature podcast, and we still talk constantly on Twitter and via e-mail and all of that. He's an awesome guy; very, very funny; and you should check out his comic RIGHT NOW.

I've been in Seattle for Emerald City Comicon, which was seriously the best time I've ever had at a convention. I sold every book I brought by 4pm on Saturday (oops!), I met a ton of awesome readers, made a bunch of new readers (I think), and got to hang out with Dave Willis (Shortpacked!) and Joel Watson (HiJINKS Ensue) a bunch, which is always a lot of fun.

I'll post a couple of sketches I did at the show over at Deleted Scenes in the near future (and if I gave you one at the show, I'd love you forever if you took a photo or scanned it and sent it to me).

I'm still aiming for two updates of my own this week — on Wednesday and Friday, so I'll see you then.

cut/paste:

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:
