I wonder if they might try "City on the edge of forever"?
Would Harlan Ellison have any issue with it if they significantly changed it?
If IDW hired Peter David to write it, and if Peter David asked Harlan for permission (as he did with Imzadi
), then I think Harlan would say, "Okie-day." Under any other circumstances, IDW would be asking for a smiting.
Don't misunderstand. IDW would be in the right, but they would be inviting a nuisance upon them.
