Read reviews and discussion of Star Trek: The Modala Imperative #1 from Michael Jan Friedman and Pablo Marcos, published by DC Comics An 8 book mini series split into two stories, one with the TOS crew and one with the TNG crew, published right before Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country was released with letters in the back half from fans concerned about where the franchise was going and suggesting various things about new strips. Covers are all by Adam Hughes, which is apparent if you check out Uhura on #1 of the TOS series and Troi on the TNG...

Oliver

Award-winning screenwriter GARY WHITTA (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Book Of Eli) teams with celebrated artist DARICK ROBERTSON (Transmetropolitan, HAPPY!, The Boys) for a new take on a literary classic—with a futuristic twist. OLIVER re-imagines Charles Dickens’ most famous orphan as a… I like the concept but from the publication schedule of this series, it looks like we’re only going to get the four issues that are already published. This is a post apocalyptic story that has some cool story beats, but it just sorta ends with a goofy ass cliffhanger in the fourth issue and it’s been...

Aliens: Newt’s Tale

Aliens: Newt’s Tale is a two-issue comic book based on the film Aliens that was first published by Dark Horse Comics from June-July 1992. It was written by Mike Richardson, based on the original screenplay by James Cameron, and was pencilled by Jim Somerville, inked by Brian Garvey, colored by Gregory Wright, lettered by Pat Brosseau, and edited by Randy Stradley, with cover art by John Bolton. While ostensibly an adaptation of the movie, it is presented entirely from the perspective of Newt… You would think with a name like “newt’s tale” you’d see more of Newt than anyone else,...

Star Trek, the Next Generation 365

September 1987. With the launch of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Gene Roddenberry somehow managed to recapture lightning in a bottle. The strange magic that for more than two decades had sustained Star Trek, the cancelled space fantasy that refused to take a curtain call, had apparently blessed its successor as well. It was off-network syndication that had transformed the original Star Trek from a qualified flop to an undeniable success story, and it was first-run syndication that made this new incarnation a full-fledged hit on the small screen; in fact, it was the highest-rated dramatic series in syndication during...

Amazon.com: Iron Man: Armor Wars II

When industrial villains Kearson DeWitt and the Marrs twins seize control of Tony Stark’s central nervous system, he finds himself paralyzed during a battle with the Living Laser. John Romita Jr’s Iron Man art is fantastic. The story doesn’t really do it for me, but I’m all about that art. Buy On Amazon!

And not from void beyond, but from the nascent...

The Mortal Engines Quartet

MORTAL ENGINES launched Philip Reeve’s brilliantly-imagined creation, the world of the Traction Era, where mobile cities fight for survival in a post-apocalyptic future. Now, in time for the film debut, the critically acclaimed MORTAL ENGINES quartet is repackaged in a boxset with fantastic and eye-catching covers featuring new artwork. I watched the fantastically ridiculous movie and figured that it had a number of cool ideas that I should check out the book series that the movie was based on. The first book was pretty verbatim what happened in the movie, so I moved onto the second book, it introduced more...

Rocketeer Adventures

Dave Stevens’ The Rocketeer was an instant hit the moment it hit the spinner racks in the early 1980s. After the untimely passing of Stevens several years ago, many thought there would never be another Rocketeer story. But, with the full cooperation of the Stevens family, IDW has produced an anthology book that utilizes the talents of many of comics’ top creators, a veritable Who’s Who of writers and artists, and each one a labor of love to Dave and his greatest creation!
