I wonder how this will stack up against Star Trek: A Comics History?

Re: New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics

"New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics" is a collection of essays by people with an interest in Star Trek comics. "Star Trek: A Comics History" author Alan Porter is a contributor to the new book. I wrote an essay for the book too and I'm looking forward to reading all the other essays.

I've also got a piece in the book, examining WildStorm's all-too-brief run.

Every time I see that cover I ask myself why is Frasier Crane reading a Star Trek comic.

It's not Frasier Crane, it's Morgan Bateson when he was just a ensign.

Cool! I especially liked Divided We Fall, the DS9 relaunch/TNG crossover.
