Release Date: March 8, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Okay, so confession time. I am not a fan of the Charmed franchise, best known for the television series which ran from 1998 to 2006 on The WB (before it eventually became The CW). I tried to like it but it wasn’t really my cup of tea, so to speak. My wife on the other hand, loved the TV series and every single novel that I could find that featured these witches. But as it holds such a special place in her heart, I decided to show it some love here. Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to Charmed: A Thousand Deaths #1 from Dynamite Entertainment.

Going into The X-Files/Ghostbusters: Conspiracy #1 I was a bit nervous, because I’ve never watched the X-Files television series. So, I was a bit concerned that I wouldn’t understand what was going on. So, did it make sense to me? Let’s find out.

Thanks to regular Ghostbusters writer, Erik Burnham, I totally understood what was going on in this issue. He gives a great introduction to The X-Files characters, lays out their purpose in this crossover, and has it make total sense, instead of just a big mash-up of the two different properties. Not only that, he actually shows us a different side of the Ghostbusters’ life that we haven’t seen in the regular Ghostbusters title.

The Star Trek: The Next Generation: Hive trade paperback collects the hit IDW mini-series from 2012, written by legendary Star Trek writer/producer Brannon Braga.

Script writers Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett take story writer Brannon Braga’s concept and carve together a passable script. What the big problem is, is that Braga tries to tell THE definitive Star Trek: The Next Generation story here, but it feels more like an expanded episode of the TV series. In short, The Borg has launched and finally taken over the Alpha Quadrant. All that stands between them and total domination is, of course, Jean-Luc Picard. Picard comes up with a plan to finish The Borg once and for all, but he needs help from another former Borg, Seven of Nine. Will they succeed? I think you know the really predictable answer to that.

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Hive #3 is the penultimate chapter in this 4-issue mini series that spans the Star Trek: The Next Generation era and beyond. The Federations in trouble, the Borg are everywhere and it ends with a pretty big shocker.

Once I started reading this, I realized just how much writer Brannon Braga loved time travel. Too much. Too much to the point where it hurts the story. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad, it’s just not good. While reading this issue I felt no sense of urgency, danger, or, well…anything. It felt like I was reading an old episode of TNG. The comic DOES have some good, true to character dialogue, but it’s just not firing on all cylinders. And as I stated, it does end with a pretty big shock ending, so I have high hopes for the next issue.

Release Date: July 11, 2012
Cover Price: $17.99 | $9.67

I’m only a casual Trekker. I stumbled into Star Trek fandom after discovering the Enterprise series starring Dr. Sam Beckett on television one night – that’s still my favorite Trek series. Now, about a decade later, I’ll occasionally catch a random Next Generation episode on Netflix, but that’s where my interest begins and ends. Although I’ve made a few noble attempts, I just can’t sit through a full Original Series episode. This probably makes me an outcast in Trekker circles. To my surprise, I really dug the 2009 theatrical reboot of Star Trek and learned to love Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and all the rest through that movie. So, I was pumped when IDW announced a comic book follow-up that would bridge the movie to its upcoming sequel.

The first four issues of Star Trek were something of a disappointment. The stories were self-contained, trite, and inconsequential to any Star Trek canon. Thankfully, this trend does not continue in Star Trek: Volume 2, which collects issues #5-#8.

Release Date: May 30, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

As the world’s first and foremost NON fan of Doctor Who, I went into Star Trek/Doctor Who: Assimilation 2 #1 expecting to like the Star Trek parts and hate the Doctor Who parts. Well, you learn something new every day, right? While I’m not going to go out and buy one of those weird R2-D2-like trashcan things from Doctor Who, I now have a different view of the franchise than I did before.

What I loved about this issue is that it starts off with NONSTOP action, something that’s not really the norm in the Star Trek universe, but it’s a heck of a lot of fun. This issue, the Star Trek part anyway, takes place in the Next Generation universe. Writers Scott & David Tipton, accompanied by Tony Lee, lay out a really interesting comic here. There’s two big A-List villains teaming up, but we’re not sure how or why – a nice mystery that will come into play later in the series, I’m sure. Then, we switch over to the Doctor Who half of the story. I found this surprisingly entertaining. Again, I know next to nothing about Doctor Who and I came away from this issue actually liking the character of The Doctor. Now THAT’S writing! If you can make a reader interested in a character that they had NO interest in, you’ve done your job and then some.

IDW Publishing
Release Date: January 18, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

IDW continues adapting the classic Star Trek television episodes into comic book form starring the cast of the 2009 Star Trek reboot movie. Star Trek #5 is based on the classic Star Trek television episode, “Operation: Annihilate” written by Oliver Crawford and Steve W. Carabatsos.

Writer Mike Johnson takes a GREAT many liberties with the story that this issue is based on, and so far, it’s working out great. After all, it would be pretty boring if the story was beat for beat the same as the television episode and just drawn in with the actors that played the characters in the 2009 film.
