Eddie Paskey: Star Trek Red Shirt Lives!

I wrote about how often a cartoon of mine was rejected 20 times before it sold on March 8th. And I used a metaphoric graphic for it: a photo of a Star Trek "red shirt,: dead on the ground. I repeated the image 20 times over:

Now I would be remiss if I didn't let you know that the fellow who had his white corpuscles drained out of his body by a cloud-like space vampire (above) also has his own Web site!

His name is Eddie Paskey and if you're a true Star Trek TOS fan then you know that he was Shatner's stand-in. Eddie has a site, with some terrific behind the scenes photos. Eddie was actually in dozens of TOS episodes. It's hard to get a good red shirt down!
