#884: The Best There Is at What He Does

February 3, 2014

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #883: I Have Seen the Future

The manager of the Naperville 14 is James Szajda (like it says in the strip). He’s one of the Kickstarter backers for Multiplex: There and Back Again, and he pledged enough to get a small role in the comic.

Book Two will be available for pre-order… soon! I’ve explained elsewhere, but the books are in-hand now, but school is getting in the way of packaging everything up — particularly doing the hundred-some sketches and such — and I want to make sure the Kickstarter backers have their books on the way before I start taking more orders. I’m guessing that pre-orders will launch later this month (but possible March), with its on-sale date of about a month later. Patience, please!

700+ page reading loads in two weeks are a little tough for me, but things should ease up… soon? Maybe?

Anyway. Szajda will return at least a few more times, though not right away.

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:
