Finally, I can see how Time-Crime ended, and how Worst of Both Worlds began!

I was a very sporadic comic-reader.

Mine is on pre-order. Unfortunately, what none of the press for this seems to mention, is that apparently the two Star Trek/X-Men books will not be included.

While the concept is a little lame, and the second comic is a lot lame, the first one actually wasn't half bad. And the scene with Bones and the Beast is worth the cover price all by itself. :guffaw:

Is anyone else having trouble getting the large-scale image of the DVD packaging, including the comic list to load?

I'm dying to see the comic list, but it won't allow me to, argh!

Some of those TNG comics are really good especially the Worst of two worlds

Just not a big fan of the Trek concept in comics. I remember these TNG era books where practically half the panels consisted of people standing around talking on the bridge. The medium of television conveys that better than comics. Comics are better suited where there's constant action...movement. That's not Star Trek. Maybe unless it's done right and it takes talent to do that.

I think that Trek works better in novels, and Star Wars works better in the comics.

Does it include the British Star Trek comic strips? How about Star Trek manga?

Looks great, either way.

Correcting myself on my above post-- it seems that the Star Trek/X-Men books will be included, despite not being listed.

"No" to the Manga, and "I don't know" to the British strips. I know the newspaper strip syndicated by the L.A. Times will not be included.

Great concept, except that I wonít be reading Gold Keyís cacca comic books; they are THE worst licensed books ever made. Bad art, bad stories, and bad characterization are the best reasons why. Iíd also advise fellow fans NOT to click on them-just look at the Marvel, DC/Wildstorm stuff instead. Now thereís great art and story, not just doody that takes up space on a rack.
When this comes out in stores (I donít have no fracking credit cards!) Iíll be buying it.

You could just get one of those prepaid credit card dealeys. I have friends who use those for online purchases since they're kinda paranoid.

Sweet. All I ever owned were the Xmen ones and the Worst of both worlds pt 1. Now I can see the others....
