#510: He’s Misstra Know-It‑All

September 13, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #506: Hot and Cold

Here's a little audio aid for this strip, courtesy the real-life Kurt Bollinger [MP3, 1.1mb]. (Thanks, Kurt!)

There will be three strips again this week. On Wednesday, we'll say goodbye to Dominic forever (probably), and then on Friday, we'll get back to the Multiplex 10 and stay there for a while. I think.

Don't forget — if you're in the Chicago area, the Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show book release party/signing/whatever will be at Third Coast Comics this Friday Saturday from 4–7pm, followed by the monthly Chicago Comic Book Meetup, where I'll be a special guest. Stop in, get a copy of the book early, and have a good time!

We're getting closer to the $5000 goal… buuut it's not looking so good for the Multiplex Sales Drive, sad to say. Have we pre-sold all the books we're gonna pre-sell?!

Let's see if we can't try to get closer, anyway. There are TWO T-shirt designs new to the Multiplex Store you should check out. One is a handful of extra Multiplex/Breakfast Club T-shirts left over from the Kickstarter rewards — and the other is a "Michael Bay is the Devil" T-shirt (referencing not only the common Bay-hater refrain, but Jason's opinion from #369 and one of the Book 1 bonus comics).

HOWEVER. The Michael Bay T-shirt is only up for PRE-ORDER at this time and will ONLY be printed if I get 25 pre-orders by October 4th. Vote with your pocketbook, if you want to see these babies come into existence!

(If you've already ordered something and want to add either shirt to your order, e-mail me. In the US, it may not save you much, because books ship separately from T-shirts, but it can't hurt to check.)

EDIT: Oh, and I almost forgot to mention. The logo on Whitey's T-shirt in the strip is an unpaid, wholehearted endorsement of ibuymusic.net. Check out their website, and please support them and their positive efforts to help keep the artists you love working on the music you love.

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, and 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:
