#504: You What, Part Four

August 27, 2010

Notes from the Manager

So it is official now: Small Press United (a division of IPG) will be the exclusive distributor of Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show for the US and Canada — a few cases of which, by the way, just arrived from the printer and look great.

(While SPU also sells to wholesalers in the UK and Australia, as well as other territories, it's too soon to tell if they'll be unloading any on the international market, I'm afraid. I will definitely keep you posted.)

The book should turn up at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.com in the very near future, and in wholesalers' catalogs for book retailers and comics shops in the not-very-near future. I'll keep you posted as to which ones, of course — especially if Diamond (the largest comics distributor in North America) is one of them.

To get your copy sooner rather than later, though, you'll want to pre-order the book from the Multiplex Store. :) Don't forget — the promotional thingy still stands: if I get 250 pre-orders before September 18th, everyone who has pre-ordered gets a free Multiplex bookmark! We're a little over 1/8th the way there, so stop waiting!

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:
