Chart-Topping Crossover Cyber-Borgs!
Set your phasers to stun as IDW’s Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who crossover comic is number one in the Apple iBook chart!
Unpredictably Issue #1 of the Star Trek: TNG/Doctor Who Assimilation has already sold out its initial print run of 22,800 – with IDW promising another 6,000 issues in a second run coming on 20th June.
So not only has the print version of the sci-fi mash-up sold out before it hit the shops – initial on its release there were 2,000 backorders waiting to be met – it’s also topped Apple’s iBooks chart in the comics and graphic novel s category.
Not bad for the first monthly comic to be sold singularly on the online bookstore.
The title, written by Scott and David Tipton with artwork by J.K. Woodward, is currently out selling Scott Pilgrim to hold onto the number one spot.
The story sees the Doctor, Amy and Rory team up with Captain Picard and the Enterprise crew to fight the combined forces of the Cybermen and the Borg.
IDW’s Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation #1 – by Scott Tipton, David Tipton, Tony Lee, J.K. Woodward & David Messina – is available via the app store for £2.99, or in print from Forbidden Planet.
