But every other comic website and Trek site is saying March 20th, and you seem to be the only person in this thread who has read it. How'd you luck out?
I bought it through iTunes / iBooks.
Seems that they sold it by accident. It is still listed as available in the iBooks store, but when you are trying to by it, it says that it's not available anymore. Grrrr ... I want to read that damned thing NOW!

Since I read all 28 pages last night, I'm pretty sure it was released yesterday and not the 20th.

Well now, that explains it. They never pay attention to release dates. iTunes was notorious for for making episodes of Stargate Atlantis available weeks before they aired on TV, and even a few months ago they released an issue of IDW's TNG Hive series by Brannon Braga a week before its release date.

So we have an online distributor ignoring the proper release date, which is the 20th.

Another thing that came to mind in going over the issue was: if "April's Enterprise" was decommissioned 2 years before and April has been presumed dead for 20 years, could Pike have been Captain of that Enterprise as well?
It could have been all Marcus.
Or first Marcus and then Pike for a few years.
Yeah, at his age, Pike would've had to have captained some ship before being given the "new" Enterprise, so why not April's Enterprise? He could've gotten it after Marcus was promoted to Admiral. Then after it was decommissioned, Marcus gave him a ground assignment on Earth (recruiting and cadet training) while he also oversaw the building and fitting out of the new Enterprise that he would captain.

Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview

How ironic - with all the changes that Nero wrought on the timeline, Captain Pike and (Cadet) Spock still could have met Vina and the illusionists of Talos IV in 2254 after all (albeit on an Enterprise two years away from decommissioning).

Can someone post a review of #3? It's out and there's at least two websites that said they have a review of #3 out today. I can't access those sites while at work

Well, Sulu & Cupcake are held prisoners by the alien faction that's opposed to April. We learn that the Klingons have been helping them and supplying them with weapons.
Spock is off on his own to rescue the 2 without saying anything to Kirk. We learn that he hasn't really dealt with his grief and has been acting somewhat recklessly since Vulcan was destroyed.

April keeps insisting that Kirk helps him win the war but Kirk refuses & goes after Spock. They succeed in rescuing the prisoners and everyone returns to the Enterprise, along with April and Mudd (she's Harry's daughter).
April manages to get to the bridge and using some old backdoor codes takes command of the Enterprise and locks everyone out of the bridge and the computer.

And that's more or less what happens.

Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview

So the comic ends with April on the bridge in command of the enterprise and everyone else in the hallway?

April & Mudd on the bridge going in to bombard the enemies from orbit.
Scotty and the rest trying to find a way to get back control.

That sounds to me like it's setting up a character thread for the movie. Particularly considering the mission Spock is on at the start of the movie.

Indeed. To quote Uhura from Countdown 3, "Spock risked himself unnecessarily. He did it before, when the Galileo crashed. It's like he's looking for any opportunity to sacrifice himself."
That seems to fit well with the Volcano incident.

I noticed in this issue they're starting to draw lens flares into the panels. That both annoys and amuses me.

They had them in the previous two issues as well.

Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview

Looks like #4 may be up. Or least a couple pages. Font is too small for me to read what they are saying. Maybe someone can download the whole issue similar to how someone had #3 a week before it came out?
