Hey everyone, sorry its been a while since I’ve written up a post.
Life got a bit crazy with illness and the weather that passed through Iowa.
On top of that I’ve spent a decent amount of my time as the Assistant News Editor of the Slice of SciFi sites and show. In fact most of the news duties have fallen to me over the past week while the News Editor was on a well-earned vacation. It has been fascinating catching some of the geeky news I love before it hits the major news sources.
On top of that I’ve got a number of reviews that I need to get written up and I’m going to try to juggle my comic reviews between here and It’s Comic Book Day.
So while I’ve not exactly been posting here for a while, I’ve hardly been idle.
There is a lot of cool stuff coming our way over at Slice of SciFi, including participation in Geek and Sundry‘s International Table Top Day later this month. As well as a few things I can’t tell you about… yet.
I won’t promise daily posts any longer, I just have too much happening but I’m not going to let a week go by without giving you something here. So I’m back, and ready to go.

Idealism and science continue to function in separate compartments; and yet “the happiness of man on earth” depends upon their combination.

The greatest danger we face is not any particular kind of thought. The greatest danger we face is absence of thought.

For this week’s Sunday Comics, I give you Star Trek The Next Generation: Hive.
I think the best way to introduce this title is with the cover blurb.
In the distant future the entire galaxy has been completely assimilated by Borg and its king… Locutus! The only hope lies in the past, in the hands of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise – as Picard faces off against the Borg collective in one final, terrifying, and definitive encounter!
Published for the Next Generation 25th aniversary, the comic series is penned by several notable writers from the Star Trek universe. Brannon Braga, the writer of several loved Next Gen episodes including the Hugo winning ‘All Good Things…’, and Terry Matalas who wrote for Enterprise.
The story is very well written, bringing to mind the kind of great storytelling that many of us fell in love with watching TNG. The art in the book is outstanding, the ships are detailed and the character designs true to the look of the actors.
I read this title as a review copy from the publisher. If you haven’t read this four volume story I would recommend you pick up the combined edition, due out in April. You can pre-order at Amazon.
Sorry to miss posts the last few days, it has been a really crazy week. I think things are settling down to normal again so normal service will soon be restored.
