Very nice picture. I don't read comics, but Countdown was good; so I am thinking about this. Have you used that website successfully before?

I hope it will resolve some things not addressed in the film, such as where Nero and his crew were for 25 years until Spock emerged into that time period. Also, the bald look with the tattoos have many wondering if that's how all Romulans look.

IDW puts out some great stuff in Star Trek. Let's hope this will be as good.

Wasn't the Narada and the crew interned by the Klingons? Or that is now passe because we don't want to have super advanced Klingons?

Well, not really. In the comic, Nero's crew shaved their heads and got their tattoos after Romulus was destroyed, as an act of mourning. However, in the movie it's shown that Nero's wife was also tattooed, in a holographic scene which clearly took place before there was ever any threat to Romulus. So obviously they were all tattooed way before, so the question now is why? Some kind of mining clan colors? And why did they all shave their heads?

She could still have been tattooed in the comic since she was wearing much more clothing. And who is to say those tattoos she had didn't represent that she was mourning something already? She was after all not bald, and Kaleh went bald.

Not in the "Countdown" comic, but the brief, tiny hologram we saw in the movie seemed to indicate she had some markings on her forehead.

But... maybe those markings are like a temporary henna tattoo, which she wore from time to time, and Nero made his own tattoos permanent, to remind him of his wife.

It's all vague enough for wriggle room.

Cool. I consider most of Countdown canon. Its an enjoyable expansion of the ST movie and no doubt this will be too.

So in other words the comic explained it, but the movie brought up another point, and so now the comic's explanation isn't right and it should be explained with a different explanation in the next comic?

The guys writing the comic, based on a story suggested by the screenwriters, probably had seen any footage, let alone a brief, small hologram of Nero's wife in the movie with her faint, barely-visible forehead markings.
