Graphic Novel Review: Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever #startrek

I was recently provided a pre-release copy of a new graphic novel that portrays a classic, fan-favorite Star Trek (OSG) episode. Luck me!

Wonderful artistry vividly captures this classic Star Trek fan favorite, uncut and how it was intended. The renderings are all well done, and the story flows nicely from panel to panel. Some of the dialogue or exposition is a bit long for comic, but fine if viewed as more of a graphic novel, It’s necessary to truly grasp the points the episode story was attempting to make. I think this book would best be enjoyed in print format. Adobe Digital Editions made it a slow, painful process to scroll through the pages. I think full-print pages would make this an exceptional experience for any Star Trek or science fiction fan.

This book is available for pre-order, and I do highly recommend the print version. It’s even on sale: 19$ at the time of this post instead of list price of 25$ atAmazon right now for pre-order. Click here.
