Issue 2 was good, it is indeed the reverse of issue 1 being trek heavy. Good though, it certainly had the feel of an episode of TNG. My only gripes are the price and how far each release is.

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

They're a month apart which is standard for monthly series, even a mini-series. I agree that it felt like a TNG episode. The first episode did not feel like a "Doctor Who" episode despite the writers getting the characterization of the Doctor, Amy, and Rory bang on.

The problem i have with the painted art in this book is it looks like it was cut and pasted from screencaps and then ran through a paint programs medium filters.

^ That's exactly what it looks like and what my problem with it is as well.

I swear, I could almost name the episodes some of the images were taken from.

That's what it looks like, but that's not the way Woodward works.

He actually works in the same way that Alex Ross works -- model shots, pencils, and then paints over the pencils. The difference between Ross and Woodward is that Ross' models are people he's hired, while Woodward's models (at least for this series) are screencaps and promo shots. He's working from the same material that you, as a viewer, are familiar with.

Ross does it a WHOLE lot better though. Some of those panels in DW/Star Trek look like a high school student painted them... I couldn't tell who was who the work was so muddled.

He should be able to hid his sources better. Some doesn't even match the dialog/scene.

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

Well, finally got around to checking out Issue 2, and although I did enjoy it, I didn;t think it was as good as issue 1.

As predicted, this is more of a Trek related story, though now the Doctor and his companions are properly teamed up with the Enterprise crew, so the fun can begin.

We spend the first part of the issue on an aquatic world which Starfleet has a really unsafe mining operation on in order to get resources to rebuild ships after the losses at Wolf 359. Due to crappy safety standards, there's accident and a flood, but everything turns out okay, and the Enterprise takes off. Oh, and there's some reclusive aliens living on the world, who after a long-winded hello, declare they prefer to keep to themselves and disappear. After the accident, they show up, provided a long-winded explanation for why they can't help out and disappear. And just what is the deal with the female officer that is always wearing a pair of goggles? That just looked weird.

Really what does any of this have to do with the story? Of course, one could also argue what does hunting an alien criminal in ancient Egypt have to do with the story, and you're right, it doesn't. But at leat that was interesting and exciting, this just feels like filler.

But once everyone meets up, the story begins it's fanboy orgasms, but too late because everything is over.

Whatever, we now have the setup out of the way and can move onto the actual story. Bring it!
