Re: Holy ....! Doctor Who/Star Trek Crossover coming From IDW!

Prior to his BleedingCool website, when he used to have a weekly Lying In the Gutters column at comicbookresources.com, Johnson used to have a little disclaimer that his articles could contain facts, uncomfirmed stuff that could be either right on the money or way off the mark, and just stuff he makes up.

Unfortunately, there really is no such thing as bad attention. It seems as if this Johnson just wants attention, and this is how he's getting it.

I had no idea that Rich used to be at CBR. I started following Bleeding Cool after he broke the news regarding the New 52...two weeks before DC planned, I thought that was a dick move then and still do...but since then he's been right about 90 percent of the time that I've been following since I keep using him as a resource.

Oh yeah, he was at CBR for many years, that's where I first started to follow him. Used to give warnings about the validity of the stuff he was reporting through traffic lights:
Green meant it was true and could be confirmed.
Yellow meant it was possible, but couldn't be confirmed.
Red meant it was basically bogus.

His original Lying In The Gutters still there to some extent at BleedingCool, but it's more of a weekly recap kind of thing now.

Yeah, I do think Johnson tends to be more right than wrong, but when he is wrong, there can be zero grain of truth to it sometimes.

I wish the interior art was more like this cover...

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of painted comic book art myself, although there are a few artists who use that style that I do like.

I'm a fan of painted comic book art...just not the kind that we've seen in issue one.

Re: Holy ....! Doctor Who/Star Trek Crossover coming From IDW!

I guess this one is going to be more of a Trek related issue with the Doctor, Amy and Rory playing miniman role? Kind of the reverse of issue 1?

Re: Holy ....! Doctor Who/Star Trek Crossover coming From IDW!

^ That would probably be a good guess. TNG perspective issue leading up to the holodeck I'm guessing. The art is still not impressing me.

Kinda sorta.



The last page is a moment of true geekiness.

Re: Holy ....! Doctor Who/Star Trek Crossover coming From IDW!

Finished reading issue two and I thought it was much improved over the first issue. The writing team has all the characterizations down from both the Doctor, Amy, and Rory and the TNG crew. As Allyn mentioned there were a lot of fun stuff in this issue. I still can't stand the art work. The likenesses are there perfectly, but it really does come off as painted photoscanned work. I'm guessing they went with this direction with the art to give the comic the feeling of a television episode, but again it doesn't work for me. Also interesting how they've chosen to ignore the fact that "Star Trek" is fiction in the "Doctor Who" universe...like the Doctor not knowing the word Klingon until he meets Worf.

What's more interesting is that while he's never heard of Klingons before he sees Worf, once he does he "remembers" them. Looks like they are going to be treating the characters as being from two seperate universes where are starting to merge.

Well, since the cover to either issue 3 or 4 (I forget which) shows
I imagine some sort of time-altering, timey-wimey stuff is going to come into play somehow as well.

And for the record, I really like the artwork. I'd been fearing we'd get someone like Martin Geraghty (who draws the DWM strip) or Pablo Marcos (who drew a lot of the really bad early TNG comics) on art.
