Star Trek: The Motion Picture - Echoes #4 review

On Earth the Romulan Ambassador complains about the actions of Admiral Kirk. the Federation President orders Kirk and crew back to Earth ASAP. in private the President and Admiral Ubah realize they are now closer to war with the Romulans due to Kirk's actions.

On the Enterprise a Romulan Bird of Prey decloaks and demands the return of their shuttle. Spock invites them to scan for it and they find nothing. later, the alternate Uhura knocks out Scotty and takes off in her shuttle. the alternate Uhura eventually locates the alternate Chekov. the Romulan ship easily destroys the ship but she is clinging to the surface of the Romulan ship in an EV suit. she fights he war through the ship.

Back on the Enterprise, Spock determines that, with the weapon alternate Chekov gave the Romulans near completion, they must destroy the ship.

Alternate Uhura going after alternate Chekov in order to save Chekov seems a bit out of character for what we know of her. again, i find the Romulan stuff to be the most interesting bit of this mini. and there is more of it in this issue than others. i also enjoyed the opening scenes with the Federation President and Romulan Ambassador. if only there were more of it.

six out of ten.

Renaud Frequently Asked Questions

Is that Autobot Stratosphere in G.I. Joe: Special Missions (2013) #3?       Yes, it is. I was Paul Gulacy's toy reference guy for most of his run on Special Missions. You ran the CTLP?       Yes, the Complete Transformers Listing Page, it linked to every single Transformers website on the internet. I kept it updated and dead links free for years and years. A titanesque task. Who was The Myth on the CTLP?       The Myth was my nickname for the youngest Transformers webmaster in the world. Today, he must be in his early 30s. Time flies.  You started a petition for G1 reissues?       Yes, in the late 90s. My online petition was signed by hundreds and hundreds of Transformers fans who wanted Hasbro to rerelease Generation One toys from the 80s.  Is that you credited on the Inhumanoids: The Complete Series - 2 Disc Set?       Yes, I supplied all the scans for it. Over the years you've helped multiple major online retailers and publishers sell Transformers and G.I. Joe products?     

Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane The Original Marvel Years review

Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane the dour English Puritan Swashbuckler gets a complete collection of his classic Marvel adventures. Sadly no Dark Horse Comics Guy Davis monster creations inside at all. You get All the pin-ups, adverts, text pieces + All the Kane stories from The Sword of Solomon Kane limited series, Savage Sword of Conan, Conan Saga, Kull and the Barbarians, Marvel Premiere, Marvel Preview, Monsters Unleashed and Dracula Lives. My favourite stories are: A Marvel Team-Up featuring the ectomorph: Kane in his twilight years and the mesomorph: Conan the Barbarian in his prime (The Moon of Skulls II: Death's Dark Riders by Roy Thomas and Colin MacNeil). Kane versus a ghost that kills (Skulls in the Stars by Ralph Reese). Kane versus a Lovecraftian cloud of blood (The Footfalls Within by Don Glut, Will Meugniot and Steve Gan). Kane versus the bat-people (Wings in the Night by Don Glut and David Wenzel). Kane versus vampires/zombies/the walking dead men (The Hills of t
