Anyone else notice that IDW has gone from 22 pages of story to 20? Did that just happen, or was it a few issues back and I just didn't notice?
Not sure, but "Flesh & stone" is also only 20 pages long!!

What's going on, IDW? DC has some 20-paged books but they are cheaper. It might only be 2 story pages, but it's a bitter pill to take.

Haven't DC and Marvel always been cheaper than the smaller publishers, just due to higher circulation figures alone?

Not really. All the publishers have comics at both $2.99 and $3.99.

Heck, $2.99 comics are almost on the endangered species list these days, although DC has many more of them than Marvel does.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

I prefer IDW COMICS TO DC AND MARVEL.

I only collect DC and marvel comics as graphic novels and not as a single comics. i hate all the adverts they put at the sides. it is very distracting.

IDW comics looks more mature than DC and marvel comics because it has none of those silly adverts on every page of the book.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

So, I was able to read my #29 and 30. It was interesting reading that Jane Kirk has dealt with sexism, even in the 23rd Century. (Other media has shown that other -isms are still alive and well in the 23rd, and even 24th Century). Also, it seems that Jane Kirk is a little more 'by the book' than her male counterpart and is also described as a 'heartbreaker' - more guarded? - while her male counterpart is more overt in his romance or non-romantic encounters with the opposite sex. Even the female Scotty is a little less 'dainty' than the male counterpart thinks. (I like the way the female Scotty says "I'll not have any stereotypin'"). However, the female Spock seems very similar to her male counterpart. On the other hand, female Spock seems very similar to her male counterpart as shown in one scene where Spock/Uhuro meet Spock/Uhura.

Still, I would like to see more of these characters.

For #35, I found it interesting that Sisko is on the cover - for the copy I bought - and DS9 doesn't appear until the last page! lol (It's a tease and left me wanting to read the next issue). I'm actually going to hold off buying it for now since the shipping price is about the same for a new comic (for better shipping and handling) and I'd rather wait to put that amount towards a few more comics....like #37 which is also due soon.

From the preview, I can tell they did an excellent job with Q. Perfect wit and sarcasm, I swore I can hear DeLancie talking!

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

I've read issue #36 and it's pretty good.

There's a ton going on here. Q, Sisko, and alternate timelines of alternate timelines. Craziness.

Thank you so much! I wish I had more time to write, but with the podcasts and work, it's tough to find the time.

Not to derail the thread, but if you need any art, I do a little something. Not my job, but I do free side projects just for fun.
