Mix Picks: Star Trek: Year Five #4
FC • 32 pages • $3.99
I’m a sucker for travel posters, especially at the end of summer. In spring I always plan more summer trips than we can possibly fit in. Around the time when Kohl’s and Target’s back-to-school ads start showing up, I get that “we didn’t do enough” pang of regret.
That’s probably while I was drawn to IDW’s Star Trek: Year Five variant cover by artist J.J. Lendel. It’s brilliantly executed and evocative of one of those classic travel posters.
This Star Trek series tells the story of the original crew’s missions during the “unchronicled” final year of the original mission. This issue brings back some favorite characters, and that’s always half the fun with revisiting TOS, isn’t it?
