^They need to hire one of you guys to do editing and quality control I just finished reading two volumes of the comics on my I pad and I must say I enjoyed them. Cool to see original TOS episodes reimagined for the JJ crew. Nicley done.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

Finally read this whole issue and it was fantastic, definitely one of the best issues so far and I must say ...could any of these characters be more vile and evil. Nu mirror Spock is quite the opposite of his TOS counterpart.

However I must say that the most shocking character in the mirror universe is Uhura. The art work was great but Spock didn’t look like Quinto at all and Uhura looked too boyish.

Fantastic issue overall.

Be grateful she wasn't bedding Rand or Moreau.

As it is the mirror universe,I wont put it past her. Kirk is a total manic,he looks almost quite mad and Spock is quite ruthless.However as a female , I have never seen a woman dump her boyfriend/husband/lover The way Uhura does.

Mor Spoilers,

DONT SCROLL DOWN IF YOU HAVE NOT READ STAR TREK ONGOING 15















I know Kirk blew up Spock's ship with him still on board but I have a feeling that Spock is still very much alive

The way it was drawn, I'm sure he is.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

I just saw the cover of Star Trek Ongoing #19. My first thought: OMG OFFICIAL NEW ENTERPRISE DIAGRAM!

http://www.comicscontinuum.com/stori...startrek19.htm

My second thought: No wait, they just pasted the nuEnterprise over the Enterprise-B master systems display from Star Trek Generations. None of the labels match up with what they're supposed to be.

Here's the synopsis:
As excitement builds for the upcoming film sequel, the ongoing Star Trek comics series shows fans the events that shaped the lives of the beloved Enterprise crew! In this issue we discover what led young Montgomery Scott to devote himself to engineering, as we witness his first steps on the journey that would take him across the galaxy! Overseen by Trek writer/producer Roberto Orci, this all-new tale sheds light on a classic character!

I wonder how it will jibe with Simon Pegg's Scotty bio from a few years back.

That is remarkably sloppy. The bridge isn't even labeled right and some random area on the secondary hull is classified as the shuttlebay. Truly terrible.

You're blaming the writer for the cover artist's work - which may yet prove to be a placeholder?

The credits at the top of the cover say "Johnson/Balboni," so presumably the writer is the same but the interior artist is different.

And I think some people are expecting too much from the cover art. It's not meant to be a formal technical diagram, it's just meant to be a piece of artwork conveying the impression of being a technical diagram, as part of an illustration for a story centered on Scotty.

Oh please, no one on this board would get in a snit over something like mismatched diagrams on a comic.

I did like issue #15 though, the entire series has been good as far as I'm concerned. I didn't go in with high expectations so i've been pleased. Liked the 'Cupcake' story & the look we got into Keenser's past.

So, Hive #3 and the final Doctor Who crossover issue today. Next ongoing issue slipped to next week's slot, which doesn't exist, so will ship first week of January now.

Actually, Diamond is shipping their comics early with instructions that it's not to be put on the shelves until December 26th (and sending out Secret Shoppers to make sure it's enforced). So #16 should still come out next Wednesday, at least in the US.
