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

At New York Comic Con, IDW's COO Greg Goldstein said they'd like to do another Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover.

Of far more interest to me, Andy Diggle (Doctor Who ongoing) would like to write an Abslom Daak, Dalek Killer series. That would be badass.

A Spider-Man/Doctor Who crossover?!?

I'm sure it's just wishful thinking, but wow, would that ever be cool.

A Spider-Man 2099/Doctor Who crossover would be really fantastic.

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

I actually quite liked issue six, I thought it was the best written of the issues so far, and there was even an improvement on the painted art work. This is the first time in the entire book where Amy looked liked Karen instead of a completely different person. Two more issues left to resolve all this build up. Should be interesting to see how they resolve this and put everything back to "normal". I sense a timey wimey reset button like in "Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes".

I started to write a review of this for my blog on Wednesday, but I didn't finish it because work on my NaNoWriMo outline was more important.

One thing from that unpublished review was about the conclusion of the storyline as a whole. Here's what I wrote:



In short, I'm not seeing a reset button coming. Especially since IDW has said they want to do another crossover.

I'd forgotten that they want to do another crossover...and that resolution sounds extremely right on the money.

Just read part 6, a big improvement over the last issue and the artwork actually looked like the characters.

In case people hadn't heard, Assimilation2 artist J.K. Woodward lost his home in Hurricane Sandy.

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

I have a mad theory about where the story might be going...



That's my theory.

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

That's actually a pretty fascinating theory and one that I would accept if that is the way the story is going to turn out. Should be an interesting last couple of issues.

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

I quite enjoyed issue seven. I actually have thought the last two issues have been the best written and even the best drawn...errrrr painted...errrr photoscanned or whatever the term is in the entire series. Amy finally started to look like Karen, instead of a completely different person entirely like she has been for most of the series. I think my favourite part was when the Doctor told Amy that the Battle of Wolf 359 was a fixed point in time and that he couldn't intervene even if he wanted to.

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

If there's a next time, they should do something more radical like have the Dominion reinforced by the Daleks during the Dominion War.
I think the Daleks are a good match for the Jem Hadar though their agenda would be to create a Founder Dalek.

Cybermen Borg team up is too obvious and even then it doesn't really work without tweaking them to accept each other which the Borg would never have done. I read the Cybermen can't even convert non humans which makes their conversion of Trek aliens like the Deltans and Cogen V inhabitants a oversight unless there's to be a massive twist like the Borg overriding the CyberBorg.

I think IDW intentionally avoided using the Daleks for this series so that they wouldn't have to deal with the Nation estate. For that matter, has IDW ever done anything with the Daleks at all?
