Don’t forget to pick up your copy of Star Trek: The Next Generation/ Doctor Who: Assimilation #03, available at any good comic book store.
The comic series, written by David and Scott Tipton and Tony Lee, pairs a few incarnations of the two massive franchises, as the Doctor, Amy, Rory and the crew of the USS Enterprise face off against the Cybermen and the Borg. Here’s issue 3’s synopsis:
“The true horror of the Borg-Cybermen alliance has been revealed, but what course of action will Captain Picard and the Doctor agree upon? And will the Doctor’s recently resurfaced memories shed new light on the dilemma?”
Issue 1 sold out remarkably fast, as did the special Forbidden Planet editions signed by Lee. The eight-part series is getting great reviews so far, as SFX’s Alasdair Stuart says:
“Massive in scale and hugely fun, this is how a crossover should be done.”
Issue 4 is released on 29th August, and sees the two enemies wreck destruction on the galaxy:
“The Federation is met with the possibility of assistance, but from an unthinkable source! Will Captain Picard and the Doctor agree to an alliance that could be worse than the enemy they face?”
IDW’s new ongoing Doctor Who series starts next month – as does the TV series! – with Andy Diggle and Mark Buckingham at the helm.
