Since I promised a Wednesday strip, here's a Wednesday strip — but unfortunately a last-minute freelance gig added to the usual Thanksgiving family obligations are going to get in the way of having a third strip up this week. Hopefully three next week. Sorry!

(11/26 UPDATE: You can see a new hand-drawn Multiplex strip — or the pencils, anyway — over at the Deleted Scenes blog, though!)

As many of you know, I'm back to looking for freelance work to make up for the time spent working on Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show full-time earlier this year (which was, y'know, all of my living expenses). It's sort of annoying to be home spending so much time looking for paying work when I could be drawing more comics instead, but since the comics don't pay all my bills, I gotta look for work that does. :(

That said, if you want to pick up the book or a T-shirt in the near future, I will be having a sale running from Black Friday through Cyber Monday… Stop by the store on Friday to see what's up!

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:
