To boldly go where no man has gone before (which for the next generation changed to “where no one has gone before”) says the intro of Star Trek as we all well know and love. I am proud to call myself a Trekkie and I mostly loved the original series above all and I clearly remember the day I saw “Mirror, Mirror”. It was, is and will be one of my favorite episode of any series ever produced, so it goes without saying that I fall over my knees when I found out about Star Trek: The Next Generation Mirror Broken mini-series.
Of course, I wasn’t the only one to notice. More than 100.000 copies were given away on FCBD and the press went nuts
“A super-buff Picard in a sleeveless muscle shirt? Bring it on.” – LA Times
“This year is the 30th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation and this comic from IDW is the perfect way to celebrate the occasion.” – Nerdist
“Look at those arms. Look at that facial hair. Clearly, this isn’t the Captain Jean-Luc Picard you grew up with, but you can be damned sure that he’s about to become your new favorite. Somehow The Next Generation has gone all Mirror Universe, and we can’t wait to see it in action!” – io9
“I’m sorry … did you miss the word “sleeveless” and “jacked” and “Picard” above? Because yes. Very, very yes. – NPR
The comic book is on sale today but due to high demand, I highly doubt that anyone that did not pre-ordered it can find it on any comic store shelve but don’t get dishearted because IDW noticed the demand and is reprinting the first issue which will follow on 31st of May.
Heads up for more news!
