Notes from the Manager
Continuity error: The supply closet door opens the opposite direction that it did in #98.
If there was any doubt, you can look closely at Jason's palm in panel 5 and see the tubing Jason is using to squirt blood out of his hand. I generally try to make Kurt's special effects pranks at least somewhat realistic. (If someone has a missing arm, for instance, they have it pulled behind their back.)
The new guy in this strip is named Rookie. Or, that's not his name, but that's what he's going to be called.
If you've somehow managed to avoid every fifth word from my mouth in the past several months, the first Multiplex print collection — Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show — is now available. As in, it is shipping. As in, you pay me money, you get the book as soon as the USPS can manage. No more Kickstarter pledging or pre-orders: money —> book —> happiness.
There IS one preorder going on, still: The Michael Bay is the Devil T-shirt design is six shirts shy of getting printed. (And by the way, if you own a store and would like to carry them, I can get them for you wholesale! Just e-mail me for details.)

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:
