Star Trek: The Next Generation: Sketchbook: The Movies, Generations & First Contact

Pass the torch. Bring together the best of what has come before and the grandeur of the present to create an undreamed-of future, a radically different look. Create a new ship. Give life to mankind… I was expecting just another art book, but this turned out to be a massive tomb of behind the scenes stories, concept art, and storyboarding. The best part of this book is that it’s a large format book and the photos inside of the ship miniatures are in extreme high resolution. One of the main draw back though was that instead of using just a...

Eaglemoss Graphic Novel Collection #2: Harlan Ellison’s The City On The Edge of Forever: The Original Teleplay

In Volume 2, Dr. McCoy accidentally injects himself with an overdose of a hallucinogenic medicine and travels through a portal to the past, causing the whole future to change. Kirk and Spock must f… I was unaware of how different the original script was, and judging from Harlan Ellison’s introduction to the book, I can see why he was so consistently unhappy with the story that eventually made it’s way to television. Stories change for TV, we all know that the original script never makes it through the process without being effected by it, but the extent that this story changed is remarkable....

They’re told that Xombul has escaped from prison taking with him a space-time spaceship. He is located in New York in 1986, where the world is experiencing a global collapse, a cataclysm: the explosion of an H bomb in the Arctic is changing the climate of the Earth. Valérian heads off in search of Xombul. Amazon gave me #1, #25, and some other random issue of this series, of which I had no experience with. I was somewhat interested in the...

Sharks and movie stars and an economic malaise dominated small-sized headlines. Then, in a moment, everything changed. The country, visited by an unspeakable horror, was plunged into an altered universe. Terror, death and war were constants in the New Normal. Here, in vivid imagery, is the story of that year — of those years. A quick read, if you’re only looking at the words, this was part...
