The first issue of Hive
comes out next week.
I got to read an advance copy this morning.
It has potential. Yes, the story feels like a Braga's Greatest Hits -- there's a little bit of First Contact
, "Year of Hell," "Scorpion," and "Endgame" -- but it hangs together in an intriguing way.
As IDW's solicitations make clear, the story unfolds into two parallel tracks, set hundreds of years apart -- fifteen years after "Best of Both Worlds" and the 29th-century. Both tracks in this first issue end on WTF? moments, and I'm curious to see what kind of payoff they have.
The first issue, in my opinion, was worthwhile.
