I picked up a copy of the May 2009 Wired this afternoon. Paul Pope's art for "When Worlds Collide" has a nice retro feel to it, which suits a story about Spock. Let's face it, he's an old dude in the Trek universe, someone we've known longer than other characters.
I guess the comic rights for the new movie are separate from the rights IDW has negotiated. I'd like to see Pope do more Trek.
