Notes from the Manager
With the 5th Chapter eBook complete (and available both at the store and to read at the site in an Online Edition), I'm conducting a bit of a viral marketing experiment: 133dpi CBRs of all five chapter eBooks to date are available via Demonoid and Pirate Bay (and possibly a couple of other torrent sites by the time you read this), for FREE. This is a limited-time thing, unless of course people go insane and keep seeding them forever and ever.
These CBRs are identical to the Online Editions in resolution — so, a bit larger than the current strips at the site. But they are not vector art, like the HD Editions in the store. They difference between these and the Online Editions, of course, is that you can download them, read 'em in the CBR reader of your choice, share 'em, whatever you want.
I'm going by a Radiohead-inspired "pay what you want" model for these, so if you like the CBRs, feel free to make a PayPal donation in any amount, or "upgrade" to the HD editions by buying them through the store… or, y'know, just let me know that you like them. If enough people like reading the Chapters as CBRs instead of only the high definition PDFs or the Online Editions, I might just keep offering them in the format.
In any case, please retweet, reupload, seed, promote and share these CBRs with anyone and everyone you think might enjoy Multiplex! For that matter, you can also embed or share the Online Edition eBooks wherever and however you like with Scribd.
P.S. Yes, Whitey is saying "aksed," not "asked." He's Whitey.

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:
