City on the Edge of Forever #2

Hello all here is my review of Issue #2 of Star Trek: Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge of Forever over at Flickering Myth





Villordsutch reviews Star Trek: Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge of Forever #2…

Harlan Ellison’s WGA Award-winning teleplay, visualized for the first time!

And to make this comic even shine that bit more the art from J.K. Woodward is truly fantastic; with time and care given to each page of this important piece of Star Trek history, it hasn’t taken a step wrong.

We get to see, in this issue, something rather brilliant which was missing from the original episode as the crew of the Enterprise all beam back to the ship from the planet. It is here we discover the Enterprise isn’t the Enterprise, but a ship called the “Con...
