Star Trek: Boldly Go Issue 2 Comic Book Review

Trek2

Issue 2 of “Star Trek: Boldly Go” continues to entertain.

After the enticing cliffhanger from issue 1, I was eager to dive into the series more. Thankfully, writer Mike Johnson does not disappoint with the second issue.

Given that I do not want to provide spoilers here, I will be as vague as possible in describing the story. Essentially, an iconic Trek universe foe has emerged and the split up Enterprise crew members are called back into action to respond to their alarming appearance. That’s about all I will say.

With issue 1, Mike Johnson spent time with the characters and set-up the story. With issue 2, he gets straight down to business with the central conflict of this new series. This issue moves fast and furious (perhaps a bit too fast) making it a quick read that will leave you ready for issue 3 and beyond. On top of that, the issue also delivers plenty of savory moments for Trek fans including the aforementioned villains as well as some direct “Star Trek” (2009) and “Star Trek Beyond” references.

Once again artist Tony Shasteen delivers the goods. He gets to further flex his artistic muscles with the design of the baddies.
