I admit to some personal bias, since IJOCA published an article of mine last year. But it's not like I get royalties. A (very) small part of the published paper can be found in a recent feature article here on Sin City.
Also in comics news: got a look at issue #1 of the new IDW adaptation of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Why Khan? Why now?
Well, IDW, current makers of Trek comics, is putting together a collection of all the comics adaptations of Star Trek movies. Thanks to licensing problems, Khan was the only one not to get the comics treatment at the time of release (back in 1982), so they've commissioned it to complete the set.
Alas, the art by Chee Yang Ong is a rather sketchy-looking and static. And Andy Schmidt's adaptation lifts most of the dialogue verbatim, which doesn't quite work, especially given the compression of the scenes.
It's a shame, since the kind of comic-book style adventure of the film itself ("KHAAAAN!") was one of the reasons it saved the franchise. But you wouldn't know it from this adaptation.
