#639: Aaah! Zombies!!

November 3, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #637: This Is Foreshadowing; #638: Try a Little Tenderness

Technically, the title should read zombie — singular — but I borrowed it from an actual zombie movie of the same name. I haven't seen it, but the real life Kurt Bollinger — who turned 37 on October 26th and gets married (not to a woman named Melissa Recar) on November 11th — says it's awesome. His taste in movies is an abomination, however, so take that with a few grains of salt.

I think this is a wrap for their first night of filming, but we'll see what I come up with on Monday… 

I will be at MiX this weekend. Come see me and Zach Miller (Joe and Monkey) at Table 46 this Saturday and Sunday at the Soap Factor's second annual Minneapolis Indie Expo. On Saturday at 1pm, courtesy of the Nordeast Comics Summit, I'll be giving a Digital Illustration workshop, as well, so if you'd like to see how the vector magic happens, be sure to hunt me down then.

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:
