Star Trek After Darkness

It's fun to see how they are re-imagining the original series.

With After Darkness, we see our new Spock dealing with his Vulcan urges. Unlike the television episode, the crew of the Enterprise cannot deliver Spock to Vulcan as it was destroyed in the first film. Thus, they travel to New Vulcan but there is a new twist at New Vulcan and one that encompasses our Spock.

I'm still reeling from the reinvention of Mudd but, for the most part, these semi-new stories are entertaining.

The illustrations are very good. Sometimes the faces of the characters look off-center and a little twisted, but if that's the only downside, this is an excellent graphic novel. Can't wait for more!

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by IDW Publishing.
