Comixology owes Grimlock something

Star Trek / Planet of the Apes #1 (of 5) - Scott Tipton, David Tipton, Juan Ortiz, Rachael Stott

My spate of comic reading is in part because I joined Comixology (or got an account there) because of free comics offered when I got Wonder Woman tickets.  It is awesome that I can read many of my kindle comics there, so I have being reading, largely, freebies.  This was one.

 

Well, that and I went, let's see whatwe can find that Grimlock has read.

 

 

I am one of those weird geeks.  I prefer reading.  I like Star Trek, Star Wars, Dr Who but my interest waxes and wanes.  It really depends upon a variety of factors, but mostly connected to the writing and the market push a group makes.  I guess I am a Trekie, Trek like Wars has always been a part of my existence, and I do not really understand how the true are mutally exclusive.  Quite frankly, considering the recent entries and reboots from both series, I have to give the edge to Star Trek right now.  Star Trek was always better with representation.

 

Largely that is because I love, have always loved Uhura.  Growing up and watching the original series, I had two choices of women to latch on to.  Chapel and Uhura  (yes, I know Rand was there too, but really it is two).  As a child, I saw Chapel as the mopey one and Uhura as the one who did things, so I went with Uhura.  Which is the highest praise I can give both Nichols and Roddenberry.  I love ZS' s protrayal of the role as well. I do not have a problem with Spock and Uhura has a couple (but can we please not have a relationship issue in the next movie?)

 

Therefore, this comic is great because in the opening panels it has Uhura and Sulu kicking ass as undercover Klingons.  Anything after that was not as good.  It wasn't paid and it was pretty standard OST.  But those opening panels/pages.  YEs!

 

As for the Planet of the Apes bit - look I never got into those movies in any boot whatsoever so ask someone else.
