    Well, we're speaking more in terms of unusual crossovers, and that's pretty normal for comics. Comics universes tend to be a hodgepodge of genres and tropes that would normally never go together -- gritty noir detectives live in the same world and fight on the same teams with technological masterminds, pulpy space aliens, fourth-wall-breaking comedy characters, and straight-up sorcerors and gods. Comic-book universes are defined by their syncretism, their willingness to combine things normally kept separate and to experiment with unusual blends and reinterpretations.

    Marvel hasn't really been taking part in any of the recent crossovers, so this seems pretty unlikely. But IDW, who is doing the Disney comics now, and DC have done Star Trek/Green Lantern twice, Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Batman, so Superman/Super Goof isn't totally out of the realm of possibility.

    ST: The Folded World (TOS) - I cannot - for the life of me - get into this book. The style is so different from the VAN series and it just hasn't grabbed my attention yet.

    Just started reading the first miniseries in @KRAD (and @David Mack's) post-PK Wars Farscape comics. Only a handful of pages into it, but so far it's great.

    Finished up the Millennium Trilogy. Got a bit convoluted towards the end, but overall an enjoyable slice of DS9. I wish we had new novels in the TV-show time frame. I generally enjoy the current novel-verse, but there is none of the feel of DS9 left.

    Took a brief break from Trek reading. My 12 year old son asked me to read The Crystal Shard, one of the old Forgotten Realms books. Good enough, but looking to get back into trek. :techman:

    Just read Kim Vogel Sawyer's Grace and The Preacher and Sarah Sundin's Anchor in the Storm. Now reading Ronie Kendig's Conspiracy of Silence. After that, it's the Star Trek Constellations anthology.

    I decided to take a break from the Farscape comics and started reading Hidden Universe Travel Guides: Star Trek: Vulcan.

    The next excursion into the realm of old school, Mindshadow. I really liked Dillard's novelizations way back in the day, and felt like her prose agreed with me; it's nice to see that it's still working for me with this more original story.

    Sherlock Holmes and the White Worm by Sam Siciliano, which is exactly what it sounds like: a mashup of Conan Doyle and Bram Stoker.
