Love them or not, one can’t deny that Creation Entertainment has built an enduring calendar of annual events. If you’ve never been to a convention put on by Creation, they are indeed a bit different than most pop-culture conventions. The first thing to strike a visitor is that these events are fairly low-key affairs. That’s not to say that they’re not very well attended; there’s a healthy crowd, but it’s not shoulder-to-shoulder, and definitely once you’re past picking up your registration badge, not the typical bumper-car experience. They tightly control the daily number of attendees to make sure that every person at the event can make it into the main session rooms to enjoy the experience.
Just in time for the holidays, IDW’s Star Trek: New Visions photonovel series returns with fan favorite Harry Mudd like you’ve never seen him before. Does the new John Byrne original story, “Made Out of Mudd,” pass muster? Find out with a spoiler-filled review, plus a 7-page preview, after the jump.
