Titan releases Star Trek Comic!

Posted by Michael Warren on May 10, 2009

So, today’s Sunday Mirror (a newspaper I would ordinarily go nowhere near) had a free special edition of Star Trek Magazine from Titan Magazines. A 16-page “taster” issue, including what I imagine are interviews from the real issue 145, the Movie Souvenir Special.

However, the major surprise came on the back cover. As well as the advertisment for Star Trek Magazine, the back cover includes the first announcement of Star Trek Comic, a new release from Titan! This is the first I’ve heard of this release – and it is a bit of a surprise.

The bumper first issue is apparently out now (although I didn’t spot it anywhere after looking around for Trek merchandise on Friday afternoon after the film), and is 68 pages (I presume future issues will be 32 pages or similar). The issue features the first two issues of the film prequel Countdown, as well as various other features, and film stickers. Obviously, it is intended for a younger audience, but I shall be picking it up as soon as I locate it!

This appears to be a UK-only release, as Titan’s US website has no comics section.

More information can be found at Titan’s official website here.

Stumbling across…

Posted by Michael Warren on January 31, 2009

Reading through my comics haul for this week, I was surprised by this as I made my way through Runaways

I mean, I knew about the Esurance partnership, but it did stop me in my tracks for a few seconds. It’s one of those milestones, like the trailers, like the TV spots, that tell you it’s almost here.

And, of course, there’s the Superbowl commercial to look forward to on Sunday night as well…

Review – “Do Not Close Your Eyes”

Posted by Michael Warren on December 6, 2008

It has been said that history moves with the speed of a bullet…

The first issue of IDW Publishing’s latest Star Trek comic series came out two weeks ago. Falling under the Myriad Universes banner of alternate history stories, Star Trek: The Last Generation sees a devastated Earth under Klingon rule, after a single person in the wrong place at the wrong time leads history to take a decidedly different course.

So, how was it? Find out inside…

Dusting off and catching up…

Posted by Michael Warren on December 2, 2008

I doubt anybody’s still checking back on this place, but… here goes.

Yes, I have returned. Sort of. Sorry for the exceptionally long hiatus – even I wasn’t planning on it running this long.

And, I’ve missed a ton of stuff. Well, I haven’t missed it, but I haven’t commented on it. Things like: the new Enterprise, the new trailer, Gods of Night, Mere Mortals, David Tennant’s departure from Doctor Who, new Red Dwarf on the horizon. So, I may have to reach back and bring forth those things, and others, for comment (better late than never, hey?)

But, to start off with, I give you the cover for Scott Pilgrim vs. the Universe. Image via The Beat.
