Cover/Solicit - 3/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 3/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to
the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 4/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 5/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 5/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

Verdict - 4.3

- I've been watching Star Trek since my dad and I started watching TNG. I'm not Trekkie by any means but I do like the TV Series and Movies. After the relaunch with the 2009 Star Trek movie, I was interested in this series. So far IDW has been retelling the Original Series episodes with the reboot twist on them. From the sound of the solicit it makes it seem this is going to have something to do with the upcoming movie, but it most likely will not. Also I'm not really a fan of the covers, I've gotten used to the fact they are going with a common theme but I still don't care for them, and the photo variant just seems completely out of place. My second biggest gripe is the art, it's been awhile since I read Star Trek #14 - Keesner, but I don't recall it being so bad. This issue I had a hard time figuring out who some of the characters were at first (Leonard McCoy for instance), they didn't quite look like their movie counterparts. The biggest art snafu is in a panel where Spock is missing an eye, it wasn't drawn. Otherwise this was a good take on the original Mirror Universe episode with changes related to Nero's involvement in the timeline. I'm excited to see what Commander Kirk does with the Narada and how the normal universe is going to be involved.
