Mark Martinez has some alternate covers up:
Thanks. Can’t wait for this one.
Is Odo in a cave in this cover?
My guess is, that's the artist's noir-style interpretation of Odo's office on DS9.
Me too, I enjoyed their last DS9 miniseries, and I've been hoping they'd do another one.
Or maybe less literal, it could be a shot of the past or memory or even an imagined image. Odo is trying to catch a mysterious figure, so we see one.
That's just Al coming to tell him that Ziggy says there's a 92% chance he's here to solve the murder mystery.
Syfy has an preview of issue one and comments by the authors:
[Begins five paragraph rant about Odo's office looking wrong, accusations of artist insulting fandom and conclusion that everything is getting a Disco style reinterpretation. Multiple slanderous insults towards JJ Abrams and his mother included.]
My local comics ship has closed; victim to covid19 and national trending.
I will have to get it directly from IDW once it TPBs.
You could always go digital, or if you really want to physical issues they do have them on Amazon or places like Things From Another World.
More comments from the writers below:
Issue 1 just shipped today for me. Ordered it from TFAW. Issues 2-4 already pre-ordered as well.
Really enjoyed the first issue! Eager to see more of the story. My video review can be found here.
I hope this series sells well, I think I'll be too old in 2030 if there is another decade wait between DS9 releases from IDW.
Too old to read? I don't think that's something that expires, as long as you can get reading glasses.
Mine showed up today, reading this evening.
I really enjoyed the first issue. Felt like the beginnings of a great episode of DS9.
I just could not get on with the art - I will not be picking up the second issue.
Apart from that (literally) very first panel in the issue (weirdly depicting Bashir with an extra-chunky face, or maybe just a case of swollen glands), the rest of the issue's artwork was quite good and generally "on-model," at least IMO. Really liked how this series is starting out.
