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.

New poster!

Posted by Michael Warren on March 26, 2009

So, a new poster has been revealed by /film and confirmed by Empire. And, here it is!

Yeah… to be honest with you, I’m not enormously impressed. The continual sidelining of McCoy in favour of Uhura isn’t encouraging, and the floating heads dominate a bit too much.

Although, the other poster /film revealed (at the bottom, with this one) looks a lot better. I assume that’s real too, although it hasn’t yet been confirmed.

Another Esurance ad

Posted by Michael Warren on March 18, 2009

People on TrekBBS have been linking to my post about the Esurance ad, which has reminded me that I forgot to post the second one I came across, a week after the first. So, here it is:

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…
