Assimilation² Release Date Moved Forward!

Doctor Who and Star Trek crossover comic series from IDW

The ultimate crossover?

In case you hadn’t already spotted it, the release date of the first volume of the Assimilation² saga was moved to the 5th of September (instead of the previously announced date of October 2nd) – meaning that it’s out now!

For those who’ve still managed to remain unaware of the Assimilation² storyline, it concerns the first official crossover with Star Trek, in which Picard and his crew (with Kirk and his lot making a flashback cameo with the Fourth Doctor) come across the Eleventh Doctor and friends in an attempt to stop the Cybermen allying with the Borg.

This is a comic book series that could prove to run and run beyond the original run – after all, there are plenty of Whoniverse creatures that have crossover potential with the Star Trek universe. One hopes the story reads well as an overall narrative, it’ll be interesting to read in any case!

The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2: Volume 1 has an RRP of £13.50 but by ordering online from Forbidden Planet you can save 31% (£4.18) and get your copy for just £9.32!
