Leonard Nimoy won accolades, awards, and three Emmy nominations for a finely tuned, nuanced portrayal of a conflicted man torn between his Vulcan heritage and his emotional human side. We cheered the rare moments that Mr. Spock found happiness, and shed a tear when he found sadness. Mr. Spock would never admit to having a lighter side, but his ribbing of Dr. McCoy, his sarcastic asides while raising an eyebrow (yes, one eyebrow), and his friendship with, and unyielding loyalty to Captain Kirk, were all part of the adventure.

Midtown Bloggerinos! Raph here, with a new installment of one of my favorite posts from last year! I love science fiction, it’s one of the major backbones of comics, and has helped unleashed the imagination of countless millions. Without people writing stories about faraway places or future technology, how could we have inspired inventors who create smart phones, tablets and neurokinetic 3-D holoprojective televisions? … Okay so the last one is made up, but imagine how cool it’d be?!?
HELLLLOOO MIDTOWN BLOG-OMANIAC! Raph here, and I’m going to talk about something that escapes people’s attention sometimes, sci-fi comics!
