IDW's newest plans

I've been a big fan of alot that IDW has done, but their latest upcoming issue annoucement has me bored.

Khan: Ruling in Hell- Rehash. We've heard this story before, and I wasn't very interested the first time.

Captain's Log: Pike- Why does every other Pike story that comes out have to take place directly following "The Cage?" The guy was captain for more than a decade, lets spread out a little and build around something new.

Burden of Knowledge- Yet another 5 year mission outing. I wonder how many hundreds of adventures we've seen from that period already. And not even the full 5 year mission. There are hardly ever stories that take place with the early "Where No Man Has Gone Before" crew or the later TAS crew.

Oh well, maybe they'll come up with something better next time.

Re: IDW's newest plans

Outside of the John Byrne work, you can count me as one who has been disappointed with IDW's overall output. Paper-thin stories for four bucks a pop just aren't my cup o' tea.

Or even better...

I've picked up a few of the trades. Really liked the first Alien Spotlight trade and have a soft spot for Klingons: Blood Will Tell.

I was thinking the same thing.

For the most part IDW's Trek comics have been pretty good (particularly Alien Spotlight, Blood Will Tell and Byrne's Romulan stuff) but there have been several clunkers as well.

Still no post-Countdown TNG story featuring Captain Data and Ambassador Picard?

Re: IDW's newest plans

I've enjoyed quite a bit from IDW, like Alien Spotlight, Klingons:Blood Will Tell, all the byrne stuff, Spock Reflections, Nero and of course Countdown.
But the stuff they've put out so far this year, hasnt exactly set the world on fire for me.

Re: IDW's newest plans

I'm iffy on the bulk of IDW's product. I enjoyed the Captain's Logs, particularly Harriman, Blood Will Tell, Crew, Countdown, and many of the Alien Spotlights, but I haven't really been snagged by their TOS or TNG stories. I thought the DS9 story was okay, and didn't care for the Nero mini or New Frontier story. The cover artwork is usually excellent though for all their works.

That being said, I'm looking forward to the Khan books.

Yea, TNG's Ghosts was not that thrilling and now we have another TOS 5-year story and a Post-Cage Story, come on. We need more Post-TNG STXI and more middle mission Pike. It would be nice to see a non-Post TUC Sulu story.

IDW's main presentation is happening today, 12pm PDT. If they're going to say anything about Star Trek, it would likely be then. Their press release really only talks about "Infestation," which could be anything, really, and probably nothing to do with Star Trek.
