*sigh* looking forward to more nice reading… 2nd? o.O
Cool Pike cover. Looking forward to getting home after camp and reading my McCoy Frontier doctor comic that’s waiting for me.
Hmm, the “Burden of Knowledge” cover is reproducing Gorn-anatomy art done by Doug Drexler and/or Anthony Fredrickson in the Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual, which I just happened to be flipping through a few minutes ago.
Your point Mr. Chris
Hey, C.L. Bennett–Ex Machina was an excellent book. :) “Godkiller” was awesome.
The GORN! YES! I’m so there.
Also, I think Simon Pegg would make a great delta-rayed Pike. :D
Simon Pegg is a great actor, but i don’t think that he could pull off the depth needed.
Showing some more love for the Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual, sitting cozily on my shelf along with the Star Fleet Technical Manual, the U.S.S. Enterprise Officer’s Manual, the Spaceflight Chronology, and Star Trek Maps, among several other tomes which would interest anyone who isn’t too cool to subscribe to Nacelles Monthly.
One beep for yes.
Beep Beep Beep Beep!
That’s yes yes yes yes!. Not, No no!
The blurb for “Burden of Knowledge” makes it all mysterious, yet the cover gives it away. LOL.
I want more Harriman comics and a Romulan War series.
6: I second that! Ex Machina was awesome! Nice to see some love for TMP.
If you like painted and inked over assemblages of others’ previous work: graphic artists, photographers, etc. then these books are for you- the fast food version of Trek comics. Lots of calories, no nutrition, save Byrne’s Frontier Doc- at least one title with original art.
