Re: Khan #1 Review

The first issue was a little too "Ender's Game-y" for my taste, but considering consultant Roberto Orci was one of the writers of the upcoming "Ender's Game" movie, perhaps that's to be expected.

The art was great -- for my money, David Messina is the best artist IDW ever had doing Trek. Unfortunately, he only did the first three pages. The flashbacks, by Claudia Balboni & Marina Castelvetro, are similar to Messina's style, so they didn't feel like they were flown in from a different book, but seemed riddled with anachronisms. I was around in 1972-1985, and I don't remember it looking ANYTHING like how it's depicted here. But I'm probably the only reader on the planet that will be bugged by that!
