THE LIFE AND TIMES OF SAVIOR 28 was an IDW miniseries by J.M. DeMatteis and Mike Cavallaro, where a superhero named Savior 28 starts a peace movement and everyone hates him for it. Yes, it's more complicated than that.

So it's Twelfth Night (depending on how you reckon it), and that gives me an excuse to take a look at something that IDW was a bit tardy in releasing.

It was quite a while back that they announced they'd be putting out a new printing of L Frank Baum's Life and Adventures of Santa Claus with illustrations by Eisner Award Winning (and a friend of mine from the Oz fandom) artist Eric Shanower. The release date kept slipping farther and father back, and it overshot the most recognized date of Christmas to come out in comic shops yesterday (and it'll overshoot Orthodox Christmas for the bookstores).

But the book was well worth the wait; it's gorgeous. And while not a comic I think it's not totally off topic to put a few photographs here for you to look at.

"If there were a war on Christmas, I would be the general advancing on it. It’s over-commercialized. I hate seeing decorations on November 1 and I hate Christmas jingles. I had to listen to a lot of Christmas music while I was working on NOS4A2 and I wasn’t too happy about it. I’m sure if you were going down to Hell in an elevator, the music playing would be the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas album and it would speed up the farther you plunged." -- Joe Hill

I posted this in two parts last year, thought it might make a nice comic for Christmas.

This comic is a companion and prequel to Joe Hill's novel NOS4A2, although you don't need to read one to understand the other. Trigger warning for child abuse/rape.

Last Christmas I posted from the Jem Christmas special, a delighful story. There's not one this year (or not that I've seen) but we do have the start of something rather fun, the first spin-off from the Jem title.


One of the high points of the already excellent Jem and the Holograms comics has been writer Kelley Thompson's treatment of The Misfits, the main rival group to the titular heroes.

In the cartoon, the Misfits were rather lacking in backstory. They were great fun, and yes, their songs WERE better, but beyond Pizzazz being a rich girl with anger managment AND daddy issues, Roxy being an illiterate girl from the streets of Philadelphia, Jetta being a serial fantasist come con-artist and Stormer having self image issues and a never quite explained dependency on being in the group, we never really saw how they formed or what bonded them.

The comics have already given us more depth to the group, with Pizzazz being more than just a gifted vocalist with money, she's genuinely committed to the band and it's musical integrity, and in the first issue of their own title, we see more of how they first got together.

The Misfits are it! The Misfits are it! )

STAR TREK TNG: THE SPACE BETWEEN #6 is the last issue of the miniseries. It sort of resolves everything.
Except it doesn't. I vent a little bit about this and provide links to Star Trek reviews.

STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION: THE SPACE BETWEEN #5 focuses on Wesley Crusher. But instead of saving the day with science he figures out a plot without taking credits.

Another Enterprise shout-out? )

STAR TREK TNG: THE SPACE BETWEEN #3 takes place during the 7th season of NEXT GENERATION. The bad guys of the story deliberatly target Deanna Troi, so she has a purpose in the story. Also, it takes place during her romantic relationship with Worf.

Troi notices something that isn't obvious. )

Issue 2 of IDW's STAR TREK TNG: THE SPACE BETWEEN is set right after the events of "Unification."

It's mostly a murder mystery, but the important part: Holodeck Disco!

In 2007, IDW put out STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION: THE SPACE BETWEEN, a six part miniseries set at various times during the shows 7 year run. It sort of tied together in the last issue, but not really.

The first issue takes placing during the first season of TNG.


What was Worf's job back then? )
