Re: Read Any Good Comics Lately?

I havent' here recentaly, but there are some that I do like. The ones I like is The Countdown,Spock Refelections,Mission End,The Wrath of Khan,Nero, and some others. I like to get Year Four and some of the Alien Spotlight's. I know after the first of the year they plan on releasing a Captain's series. I think the first issuie is Sulu. I'm hopping they do one of Kirk then Spock, because they are my favorites. I think they are also releasing a movie adaptaion of Star Trek XI as well. I plan on getting those if they do.

Re: Read Any Good Comics Lately?

My opinions are basically the same as others here:

Countdown was cheesy in its gratuitous inclusion of TNG characters.

Nero is cool as a Star Trek: The Deleted Scenes adaptation (right down to the four-eyed alien at Rura Penthe ).

Spock: Reflections is a nice, contemplative story.

The civilisation in Mission's End was interesting, but I didn't like anything else about that story.

I have the issues of Romulans: Schism and Crew, but I've been saving them up for a John Byrne marathon.

I'm also waiting on a delivery of the DVD-ROM of the pre-IDW comics, at which point I anticipate a second, nostalgic marathon...

I liked Transformers: All Hail Megatron- great art, neat stories... a bit slow in places, sometimes with too many pesky humans, but it was interesting, unforeseeable in places, etc. I hadn't read comics in years, so as an intro to them, it was a positive experience.

I really enjoyed the last bridge scene with Kirk, Spock and McCoy deciding to go their separate ways, but the whole series was tough on the eyes since the type style used to show the aliens' dialogue was hard to read. That kind of made it less enjoyable to me.

John Byrne has a new series coming out in 2010 called McCoy: Frontier Doctor, set during the period between the five-year mission and Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

And yes, that's a Pierson's Puppeteer on the cover to issue #2!

Those are great. I've really liked Byrne's Trek comics, and I'm looking forward to this series.
