Review: Star Trek: The Manga, Volume 3: Uchu

Star Trek: The Manga, Volume 3: Uchu by Nathaniel BowdenMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Not a bad collection of TOS stories. This book had a similar feel to the other two volumes in the series.  Too bad the manga didn't have as much of a following and Tokoypop decided to cease producing it.View all my reviews

Review: Star Trek: The Manga Volume 1: Shinsei/Shinsei

Star Trek: The Manga Volume 1: Shinsei/Shinsei by Chris DowsMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This was actually a fun read, and many of the stories "felt" TOS-like in their telling and execution.

This seems like one of those books to own for any trek fan ;-) View all

Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation, Volume 1: The Manga: Boukenshin

Star Trek: The Next Generation, Volume 1: The Manga: Boukenshin by David GerroldMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Not a bad attempt at TNG stories in Manga-style comics. Although I do see why Tokyopop didn't continue to produce these. While the stories were enjoyable they didn't really 'feel' very TNG. The characters were a bit off in the dialogue they used. The facial expressions sometimes also

The Impossible Whopper

Burger Kind punks everyone who thought their Whoppers were made of real beef.  Sadly, I think one of these days we will find out that fast food was not beef all along (and not, it won't be veggie burgers :p)

Roku Press Paws

This one was another interesting April Fool's that has caught my attention.  I think what got me was the pet-appeal of the fake ad.  Next year they should do something with cats ;-)
