The role of the Romulan commander, originated by Joanne Linville, was carried on in "Star Trek Continues" by her daughter Amy Rydell.

Joanne Linville / Amy Rydell

Joanne was fortunate enough to see her daughter recreate the role and was very proud of her performance.

(I love how Amy has on one Romulan ear piece and Joanne wore the other one.)

I haven't seen any of those "Star Trek Continues" shows yet but there are photos from it floating on the web, and months ago, I saw one that made it clear that Linville's Romulan character appears in one of the episodes. It seemed to be a wild stroke of luck that the producers had found an actress bearing such a striking resemblance.

I highly recommend the Star Trek Continues series. Vic Mignogna plays the role of Captain Kirk and he absolutely nails it. He has every one of William Shatner's mannerisms down pat. The series wraps up the last 2 years of the 5 year mission and leads into "Star Trek: The Motion Picture". You can find the series on YouTube.

Stuart Damon, perhaps best-known in the UK from his role in "The Champions," a sci-fi/spy adventure show and best known in the U.S. from his long run on the soap opera, "General Hospital," passed away today at the age of 84.

This is card #24 from the 45-card "The Champions" set (A&BC, 1969). The show ran for only one season but became popular in reruns. He might be on one of the cards in the "UFO" set by Unstoppable or one in "The New Avengers" set by Strictly Ink.

Superman was a fantastic movie. It had the tagline, "You will believe a man can fly," and we knew the big moment was coming when the helicopter got stuck at the edge of the roof and started to slip off. Superman couldn't find a phone booth and then politely excused himself just before launching in time to save Lois Lane and the falling helicopter. That was one of the great thrilling scenes in film because it looked real to us.

Lethal Weapon was a great movie too. Like Superman, it had its own balance of action and comedy. I also read that Donner directed "Scrooged," an inspired comic retelling of "A Christmas Carol."

Donner knew how to make a movie.

Oh boy, that one hurts. They had started a thread over in Chatter about Chris Henderson's illness and it was left hanging, so I hadn't heard that he did pass away. Missed it on Blowout. Ed said here that he was one of the "original gangsters", I know he was the first non-sport artist I contacted after I switched over from sport. Previously I only talked to graphic artists involved in gaming card productions. Chris also did sports card art, but I wasn't involved with sports at the time I became aware of him.

He was an active member on Card Talk when I started and I had seen his work in TOPPS set, so I emailed him and set up some commissions. He was the first artist to ever do a commission for me, which was a series of sketches, and he was great to deal with. Over the years I continued to pick up or pull his stuff. As a result, even though I don't seek out sketches generally, I have 20 of his. The most of any single artist by far.

I thought his black and white pencil portraits were his best work, but that's just my opinion. He worked in color too of course, but I thought he really caught facial expressions better in pencil. His work can be found in a slew of titles from Indiana Jones, to the TV Avengers, to Star Wars and Kevin F put up nice links. He was always easy to tell by his style and his readable CH signature. The most unusual piece I have from him is an Aliens oversized sketch that he did a long time ago for a cancer charity. I won it in their fund raiser on eBay.

Anyway my sincere condolences to his friends and family. Although he is gone much too soon, through his work he left a lasting impression on strangers like me, who feel that they knew him a little. His art will continue to change hands and people will know and enjoy his considerable contribution to non-sport sketches and products. Rest in peace Chris.

Hi Raven,

I'm sorry to read of his passing. He didn't get much time. If you ever take photos or scans of any of your sketches, please post them in the "Favorite Sketches" thread.

I do have several sketches by Chris Henderson in my collection. My personal favourite is this commission piece he created for me based on a lobby card from the Ray Harryhausen film 'Jason and the Argonauts':

Comedian Jackie Mason has died, age 93.





(Wasn't the voice of the Aardvark in "The Ant and the Aardvark" based on him?)

Yes, Bill, John Byner was the voice behind both the Ant and the Aardvark. He was doing an impression of Mason and Dean Martin respectively. I remember Byner doing voices on talk shows in the 70's. I was happy to see he's still with us.

I liked those cartoons that were part of the Pink Panther show. The "Texas Toads" came later.

I think I saw Jackie Mason more on Merv and maybe Mike Douglas than Carson. He was a good comedian with a distinctive voice.
