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

It's done. That's the best thing I can say.

This was the comic book equivalent of the long passages through V'Ger in Star Trek: The Motion Picture or the diving bubble sequence in "The Sea Devils." Yes, it's cool to see Patrick Stewart and Matt Smith sharing the same page. But they needed to do something with that. Put the characters in jeopardy. Make them work to get out of bad and increasingly worse situations. Have them do something. That's not what we got. What we got was nostalgia masquerading for narrative.

Conceptually, Assimilation2 could have worked. Instead, we got something that Steve Parkhouse and John Ridgway would have needed at most four eight-pagers in Doctor Who Magazine to cover spread out to 180 pages.

I talk about it more at length on my blog. I voted for this in Bleeding Cool's "Most Disappointing Comic of 2012" poll. Avengers Vs. X-Men was terrible, but I didn't expect anything from that. I expected better from this.

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

J.K. Woodward is selling prints of some of his Star Trek/Doctor Who artwork. In addition to the "Bad Wolf 359" print (the cover to issue #7), he's also selling prints of Amy Pond in the TOS microskirt and an Odd in a redshirt.

For those interested, look here.

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

Yikes. Been trying to track down the first trade, which is now out of print apparently, but it sounds like I needn't bother. The TOS/Legion crossover was fun, but fell apart in the final issue (as much as I like the TOS crew, it turned into a TOS comic with guest starts who did very little). This one was really just stultifying? Yikes.

Diamond still has it in stock, so your local comic shop would be able to order it without any trouble. The item code is JUL120287.

It was one of the dull, talky Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes, with the Doctor as the main guest star.

Apparently not. It's on indefinite backorder according to my LCS. Or some other designation they've rarely ever seen from Diamond.

Oy, that's doubly disappointing. I may skip this then. And the first two issues were quite promising, too...

This whole comic crossover didn't really appeal much to me but that cover with the Ponds is pretty cool.

Both volumes were out of stock until this week. Tell your retailer to check the "Back in Stock Spotlight" on the Diamond Retailer Services website.

There's some chatter that IDW is going to publish the entire story in a single volume for the fall.

I don't know, you may like it. I know people who loved it. I, however, thought it was poorly executed.

Oh! That would explain that. I checked last Saturday.

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

The collected hardcover edition of all eight issues arrives in comic shops today.

Paul Cornell was interviewed by Radio Free Skaro in episode 388, and he talks at the 48:30 mark about the Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover that he pitched to IDW that, due to the limitations of their Doctor Who license, they were unable to pursue.
