Related Strips: #808: The Neutral Zone
Sorry I was late with this one! I got it in under the Friday wire (for my time zone, anyway).
This is the first (or second?) of a short hand-drawn arc. As you can probably see, this one is less overtly a “promo” than the first one. They weren’t going to all be about coming to see movies, of course: these are partly just excuses for me to do hand-drawn comics with the Multiplex gang in fun situations.
Anyway. I’m trying to get caught up to the present day, but these hand-drawn strips take a lot of time, y’know.
For the people who haven’t seen Star Trek Into Darkness: rest assured, this does not spoil anything in the movie (except that there is a ship called the Vengeance, I guess, and Benedict Cumberbatch is in it at some point?)… Okay, nothing that wasn’t clear in the trailer, anyway. I wrote most of this arc before I ever saw the movie.
There will not be any spoilers in the rest of the arc, and I would appreciate it if there weren’t any in the comments section, either! Not even with a spoiler warning. Because come on.

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
