Ghost #3 + Star Trek #16 Reviewed

In The Smoke and Din, part 3

After the phoney and inauthentic issue 2, this issue does an exposition dump about a demon conspiracy and the magic box. Bad things happen to Vaughn and the ghost’s back-story is revealed. This was okay.

Best Line:
“Your plan is to accost the man at his birthday party and accuse him of hiding a serial killer.”

Mirrored, part 2

This is based on the 2009 movie and sadly I missed #15. This is a retelling of the 2009 movie in the mirror universe. Kirk, Chekov, Scotty and Sulu have taken over the Narada. Uhura lurks looking nothing like Uhura. Pike is an eye patch sporting senator wearing a ‘Star Trek 2’ style uniform. Also San Francisco has a Black Gate Bridge.

Kirk has blown up the ISS Enterprise and is power crazed. Spock Prime shows up. Kirk yells a lot and rejects redemption. People die. This was okay.

Best Lines:
“You are not the James Kirk I remember.”

“I’m going to have to start encouraging you to be honest. You won’t enjoy my methods of encouragement.”
