Sorry for leading you on (sort of), but that's it for Sophia. Bye, Sophia! And welcome back, Devi. She'll pop up again in the near future.

You can, of course, get the Art Is Failure, Life Is Shit shirt from the Multiplex Store, but that's been there for a while. There's also a brand new design there — sort of.

You remember waaaay back in Multiplex #684 when Franklin was talking about how the Michael Bay-produced Ninja Turtles movie will find our half-shelled heroes originating from another planet, rather than from our own beloved Earth?

UPDATE: The timing of this is uncanny — obviously Paramount saw this T-shirt design go up for sale and balked, because the film has been shelved “indefinitely.”

UPDATE 2: The original source for that, an article at The Hollywood Reporter, was updated to say it may have only been delayed by ten weeks, and is now targeting a March 2014 release.

So yeah. I finally got around to drawing this shirt design up and so you can now get a Ninja Turtles-inspired Michael Bay is the Devil design to complement the popular Transformers G1-inspired design. If you like it, tell your friends about it!

See you Monday!

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:
