Star Trek/Planet of the Apes Graphic Novel by Scott and David Tipton

Can you get more bizarre than the combination of Star Trek and Planet of the Apes?

In these IDW productions, you will find a lot of fun. That is the key word: fun. The writers understand the two franchises. They understand what made them work and the humor involved.

The character interactions were fun and the twist gave the book a nice send off.

I've been mostly impressed with these graphic novels of Star Trek. I was worried about this crossover. I worried it would be silly or such a train wreck but I was pleasantly surprised.

It does spin a bit from an original series episode concerning whether the Trekkies interfere with the Prime Directive. And how exactly will that work in this Planet of the Apes situation...

Enjoyable and great fun.

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