Picard saying “Ahoy there!” ???? Umm.. wow…

2. Fraser Link - February 19, 2010

Well, from the samples here, the artwork isn’t too bad … that’s a plus … :0)

3. Simon - February 19, 2010

It’s not polite to point Captain.

4. Trekboi - February 19, 2010

the art is passable but cant they do better?

Dissapointing…

5. Daddy Todd - February 19, 2010

I picked up a copy of the Romulans trade on Wednesday. perhaps it’s just delayed in some parts of the country (like the east coast) but at least out west, it’s already at your Local Comic Shop.

6. DonDonP1 - February 19, 2010

Cool. But why did Dr. Crusher called Commander Riker ‘sir’ in ‘Ghosts’? Crusher’s rank is or was the same as Riker’s.

7. ryanhuyton - February 19, 2010

#6 I think Crusher’s rank was Lt.Commander. Anyway, Riker was first officer so he is her “superior”.

8. captainhunt - February 20, 2010

I looked for Pawns of War at B&N last night and they didn’t have it. No Nero either. What I find funny is they now have 3 copies of Countdown in hardcover. I do live on the east coast myself. I will try another store tonight.

9. John in Canada, eh? - February 20, 2010

Artwork looks good. Much better than some of the other offerings out there. Characters actually look like the actors. This actually makes me want to pick up the comic for a change.

10. Hat Rick - February 20, 2010

From a distance it almost looks like Picard is pointing a phaser at Riker. :-)

11. Rastaman - February 20, 2010

Looks like Riker just “did his duty” on the bridge or something.

12. Desstruxion - February 20, 2010

I’d like to see a whole series of comics that take place on Enterprise E after Nemesis. A Titan series would be interesting as well. I’ve been away from the comics thing for a while and have just gotten back into it. Are there any like I described out there anywhere?
