Good artwork, but IDW should really start making more of an effort to present non-bipedal aliens. Almost always, they have two arms, two legs, two hands, two ears, two eyes, etc. In comics, anything visual is possible, so IDW’s editors should be pushing artists to employ more imagination.

It is nod to TOS where all aliens were humanoids.

will there be singing

How is this not a Farscape crossover?!?

That would be worth the price of admission. I would love to see Crichton blown away by crossing into the world of a pop fictional world he would recognize from his own world—frelling cool!

Stray thought. I have always thought it would be neat if the art in these comics and book covers would average the features of the two or three actors who play these characters. And, averaged or not, I wonder whether computer models of the faces could help the artists to portray the characters from any angle and with any expression. I am a halfway decent artist who went to art school (it became a minor when I got hooked on philosophy), but the idea of drawing consistently accurate representations of such well-known faces has stuck me as such a daunting task, going back to the Star Trek V-era comics in the ’80s-’90s.

How come Mitchell and Ortegas are sitting in the wrong seats?

Because the artist has never seen the show?

On Mike Allred’s cover, the characters look drugged.
