#387: Wake-Up Call

August 21, 2009

Notes from the Manager

The big news today is: Multiplex finally has a merchandise store!

So far, there are just two T-shirt designs (one being the one Jason is wearing in this strip — although there is a design on the back you haven't seen yet) and the Multiplex: Chapter 1 downloadable eBook at its new, lower price.* But it exists, and it will slowly have things added to it. Peruse the shop and buy something, why don't you? (The Multiplex Store accepts both PayPal and credit card orders. If you want to send a check or have any other questions/comments about the store, just drop me a line!)

Thanks to my brother, Lawrence, for helping me get the store site up and running — and also to Jackson Ferrell, my merch guy, as well as the proprietor of This Week in Webcomics.

* If you have already purchased a copy of the Multiplex #1 eBook: HD Edition (not the WOWIO version) drop me a line. I'll give you some coupon codes to "upgrade" to the new version for free and get $1 off the shirts (or any future merchandise). Include the e-mail you used when you purchased the original eBook, so I can verify your previous purchase.

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:
