We have any comic book readers? I really only got into comics because of Star Wars. I’ve since branched out a little but for the most part stick to licensed franchises.

Star Trek Ongoing #1

Click me for a preview of the comic

This is a pretty cool new series. It’s the continuing adventures of the Star Trek reboot. I know a lot of trekkies have issues with the reboot but I liked it. What’s pretty great about this series is that this first storyline is a retelling of the episode Where No Man Has Gone Before. This issue only covers half of the story but they stayed incredibly faithful to the original teleplay from what I remember of it.

I'm reading the Star Wars early classics based on the daily strip.  It's light-hearted and silly, but I like it :)

The ROTJ collaborative thread is a wealth of ideas, both on how to edit Return of the Jedi, as well as how to collaborate in an edit.

The last comic I finished reading was Batman: Dark Allegiances. The art was somewhere in between "meh" and "ugly", and the story was unengaging.

The comic I'm currently reading is Batman: Dark Knight Dynasty. I'm not even halfway through it yet, but so far its good.

I was reading the unauthorized by Edgar Rice Burroughs inc adaptation of the martian series, supposedly Marvel is doing an authorized version.  which probably is changed to fit the new movie sadly.

The unauthorized one i was reading took liberties too but not in the same painful manner that the script by Stanton does.

 

None of the adaptations have ever done the material justice.  I have always hoped for a Frazetta / Alex Raymond/ Al Williamson type effort.


Some of the IDW Trek stuff is well written, the stuff not by Orci or Kurtzman.

But the art is almost always bad and the photoshop covers, and cgi interior line art is bogus.

I am always impressed with the amount of knowledge you have about all the people and stuff you don't like, sky. Plus you said bogus, which was excellent! :)

I think comments on the strips being posted in the link in my sig would be interesting.

Marvel Comics churning out an adaptation of a movie that is based on the movie - what an absurd concept!

Batman Year One Part 1

I actually read the whole series. What a fantastic story, extremely well written. I wish Nolan had adapted this instead. Though it is great that they recently adapted it to an animated film. I'll probably be checking that out this week.

I believe that year one had a huge influence on Batman Begins.

Now i know in Dark Knight Rises he probably is not going to do the Frank Miller Catwoman as a prostitute thing, but you can definitely see the infuence in begins.

IDW app on my phone had some free Doctor Who comics, so I read those. I really want to read the Trek comic Tobar is talking about, but I can't justify paying $4 for it on an app when I can pay $4 at the comic store to get it for real (which I have to find first).
I used some iTunes credit and bought the Trek comics for the IDW Comics app on iOS. Read them on my wife's iPad, very nice. Enjoyed it, subtle changes, I'll keep buying the issues as they come out.

Star Wars Agent of the Empire #1

Stormtroopers are the Empire's Hammer. This man is its Scalpel.

Oh man. I've been waiting for this to come out and I was not disappointed. Back during the beta for Star Wars the Old Republic I decided to play an Imperial Agent and fell in love with the idea of 007 in Star Wars. This comic set during the original trilogy era is fantastic! Highly recommend it.

IDW updated their iOS app to integrate with ComiXology, so now everything I buy on there is read-anywhere and has the awesome Guided View that moves from panel to panel in dramatic fashion. Being locked into an iOS app was the one thing that was really making me doubt my purchasing choice. So I went through and downloaded several free comics and can read them anywhere. I'm very happy, though not sure what other comics I should buy.

IDW's Star Trek Year Four comics are pretty entertaining. Some of them were even written by D.C. Fontana. Their Alien Spotlights are pretty good too judging from their Romulan issue.

I've been keeping an eye on the Star Trek ongoing series and i dig the style but i'm not that interested if they continue to adapt original series episodes.

What's the point of rebooting the saga if you're just going to tell the same stories again

I hope they'll go in a more interesting direction with it.

They went out of the way to throw continuity out in the star trek 2009 film yet still wanted it connected to the prime universe by having old spock.  Big mistake imho, yet without Nimoy and Urban that film would be total shit.

I hope the rumors of star trek 12 or 2 as they are calling it are false.  A rebooted wrath of khan sounds like a terrible idea.  How many times do they have to rehash that film they already did it with nemesis and then with trek 2009.

I would rather have them do dark and totally badass warrior Klingons, not the nice next gen guys like Worf.

I like the idea that the universe hasn't changed that much and that they might run into the same scenarios and go about them a different way. As long as the comics are the only things that repeat, the movies should be all-new problems. Everyone seems to forget that a Khan redo wouldn't be a repeat of "Wrath of Khan", it would be a repeat of "Space Seed". I can't imagine a sleeper ship of any number taking over the ridiculously huge new Enterprise full of young people. So, no newKhan for me please.

Back to the comics, I was disappointed that the new characters really didn't do much different in the first two issues redoing "Where No Man Has Gone Before". I'll have to watch the episode again to figure out what was different at all! Besides the woman doctor not being on board and Kirk and Gary not fighting for so long, I'm not sure what was different.

Star Trek Mission's End

Wow this was great. This tells the tale of the last mission and end of the five year journey for the original crew. Very well written and an apt farewell to the original series.
