Re: NEW ONGOING STAR TREK SERIES FROM IDW!!!

Yeah, I will be picking up the original stories, but the "adaptaion" of "Where No Man Has Gone Before" really didn't do anything for me.

I've read & liked WNMHGB4, picked up the latest one but have yet to get into it - too busy.

Re: NEW ONGOING STAR TREK SERIES FROM IDW!!!

I got a question.

I don't buy many digital comics so I originally got the IDW app to read Trek comics on my iPad. Well the Legion of Super-Heroes third issue never showed up for purchase on the app. So I downloaded Comixology and see the third issue available there. Yet the ongoing monthly isn't listed at all. Has IDW discontinued support for their app?

IDW is moving from iVerse-based apps to Comixology-based apps so maybe things are still in flux. All of their Star Trek titles will be published same day as print at the same $3.99 price. They've been dropping the price to $1.99 four weeks after initial release.

Pisses me off that the didn't send a notification through their app alerting readers of the change. That's the whole point of having a notification system. Plus it bothers me that I'll have to keep two different comics apps on my iPad as I have quite a few issues that I bought prior to the switchover.

IDW handled this in a pretty poor fashion.

According to the press release, all previously purchased comics should sync to comixology app. See http://www.idwpublishing.com/news/article/2155/

After going through and updating it seems to work. But you still have to redownload everything, which is a hassle. Thanks for the heads up though. Wish IDW had thought of letting people know through the app.

I didn't know about this either until I downloaded the update and had to re-download all my comics. Fortunately it was mostly problem-free, although I did lose one purchase which was kinda annoying.

Re: NEW ONGOING STAR TREK SERIES FROM IDW!!!

SPOILER ALERT!

In issue 4, it turns out the giant creatures are... APES! Lame. It's so kind of lame how they're shoehorning the relationship between Spock and Uhura in issue 4, as she pulls a Commodore Decker and steals another shuttlecraft to rescues them. I got the feeling that if Spock wasn't on there, she wouldn't have cared.

I've found the series really underwhelming thus far.
