    For me; IDW is doing well on the Classic Trek stories.
    Assigment: Earth - Better than I expected.
    Year four - good stuff.
    Enterprise Experiment - excellent.
    Mirror Images - Rock on. Mirror Pike!
    The Alien Spotlights are hit and miss. I've only purchased 3 (Vulcans, Orions and Romulans). The Gorn was Movie Era so I passed.

    I wouldn't mind one bit if they adapted DC Fontana's Vulcan's Glory.
    If it leads into the aforementioned Vulcan's Fury, all the better.

    All in all, a much more satisfying outing than the old Trek comic runs.

    Did Mirror Images come out already?

    Issue #1 came out in the last batch of four titles, a few weeks ago. It was a great start!

    Hmmm, maybe I'll be needing to make another trip to the comic shop soon, or I might order then off TFANW.

    The Secret of Vulcan Fury



    for the uncompleted videogame.




    Any chance "The Secret of Vulcan Fury"
    http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Star_Trek:_Secret_of_Vulcan_Fury
    could be adapted into a comic book series?
    Here are the original concept storyboards:

    What would bring D.C. Fontana a better publishing deal and more profits? A novel with TOS characters or a comic book series?

    There's also the likeness of Pike in Star Trek, Annual #2, Series II. Artist Gordon Purcell wasn't allowed to use Hunter's exact likeness, and he stated that he just drew a Superman-like facial structure, without photo reference, remembering that Hunter had chiseled, superhero features. But it was so close to looking like Hunter that they had to go back and draw a mustache on him!

    He hasn't in the past, but in Schisms his Kor and Koloth come pretty close to John Colicos and Wiliam Campbell in those roles.

    Where can I find these? Are they very hard to find and expensive as collector items or fairly cheap?
    I'm a comic book newbie and have never bought any comics except The Complete Comic collection on DVD-ROM.
    Has D.C. Fontana done any other stories for comic books or graphic novels.

    Do you guys have an opinion on what her best work is for comics ?

    This is Fontana's only comic work that I know of. As such, it's her best comics work ever :rommie:

    You can order the trade paperback from Amazon.

    Year Four: The Enterprise Experiment was actually Dorothy's first-ever work in comics. It's co-authored by DS9 scribe Derek Chester, who was also making his comics debut. (Not that you'd know this by reading the series; their scripts came in virtually note-perfect.)

    Any plans for the Year Four series to continue?

    Also, I've heard something about a Captain's Log series which might include Titan? Anything more on this?

    I'm trying to get whole Spock Refelections series. I got all 3 of the series and plan on getting the 4th one when it comes out. I'm really enjoying it very much. I have The Countdown,Nero,Missions End,Wrath of Khan too. I'm looking forward to movie adapaton of Star Trek XI when it comes out. There suposed to be 6 in the series, which means they added the delted scenes in it which was not in the movie. I think the apdation series starts in January.

    Was that ever put into an anthology? I have the last two parts, but not the first two.

    No, WildStorm had already let the license lapse, but it did come out in two foreign language trade paperback omnibuses. I have it as individual issues in English - and as "Symbiose", in German by Dino Entertainment.

    There was also one in Spanish by Recerca Editorial.
