#512: Say It, Don’t Spray It

September 17, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #126: Because Crying Equals Drama

So, alas, with less than 24 hours left, it looks like the Multiplex Pre-Order Sales Drive will fall short of the goal by nearly $2,000. This one's not gonna come down to the wire, I don't think. We still got a healthy number of book pre-orders, and the Michael Bay is the Devil T-shirt pre-orders are moving along quite well, though, so thank you to everyone who donated or ordered something through the Multiplex Store!

Budget-conscious Multiplex fans may want to order their copies of the book through Barnes&Noble.com, who's offering it for 32% off. While I don't personally get nearly as much money from B&N sales, ordering it from there may encourage them to order more, and to even stock some in their brick-and-mortar stores, so it's not a bad thing! (And consider leaving a review of the book, too!)

I had to put off the next Multiplex Movie Club review (of Black Dynamite) 'til next week. All the pre-orders are piling up, I'm falling behind on Artist's Edition sketches (some of which I might share soon), and the book's gotta come first. So you have another few days to watch it before I post my review! WATCH IT!

The girl in the last panel here is a new staff member — namely Angie Booth, the Kickstarter backer who won a "job" at the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. Or, it's supposed to be her, anyway. The front angle looks more like her. Anyway, sorry, Angie! It's supposed to look like you.

You'll find out more about the Multiplex version of Angie soon — and meet a few OTHER new staff kids. Or heroes are all supervisors now, so it's about time they had someone to supervise, huh?

For the last time, if you are in the Chicago area, the Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show release party/signing will be at Third Coast Comics this Saturday (not Friday, as I mistakenly said on Monday) 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! Bring booze!

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:
