I don’t know about you but I’ve been looking forward to this for months. Not only is the Eleventh Doctor out to defeat the Cybermen, but Captain Jean-Luc Picard and crew are fighting the Borg. And both of these things are happening together. In one story. Squee.
So basically, the Borg and Cybermen have teamed up somehow and then…well how am I supposed to know? Only one issues been released so far.
Both franchises have a history of comic book adaptations, but this marks the first time the two have interacted outside of fan mashups.
I dug the art style, a kind of photorealism reinterpreted through oil painting type thing. It’s not what I’m used to seeing in comics and at times it just nailed Smith as Eleven.
It’s a shame that none of the Enterprise-D crew got anything more than a cameo in this issue. I have been so looking forward to seeing Eleven and Captain Picard reacting off each other and just how much of a curb stomp it’ll be when the two of them start working in tandem.
The price is $4.99, which is what, £2.65? Something like that. Pick it up from your local comic book store or online on Comixology and watch the magic unfold.
