    This story stands on its own and has me excited to see the movie, which is exactly what it should do. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Mar 20, 2013

    Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness #3 is a spectacular release that's nothing short of a crow pleasing affair. From the get-go the connections between the first and second movie in the newly re-envisioned franchise have been rather light at best. But now after some broad strokes it's becoming clear where all this is going, and trust me when I say: it's fascinating. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody Mar 20, 2013

    We're starting to make some headway with Countdown to Darkness. It's been a solid story, just not one that feels like the movie tie-in it's touted as. Three issues in and we're starting to see some of the puzzle pieces fall into place. Especially with the cover for next month's issue showing Klingon's, I expect things to really kick into high gear.

    The stakes are dire, and we'll just have to wait one more month to see how it ends! We'll be sure to be there for the conclusion. Read Full Review

    There are other, slightly more subtle ways, that Countdown to Darkness might be leading in to the film, particularly in the evolving relationship between Kirk and Spock (which, at least on the page, is beginning to resemble more of their familiar dynamic), and in terms of how Spock is dealing with the loss of his homeworld. Anyway, Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness is just what I need to hold me over until the film hits in May, and it's filling in the blanks without giving too much away. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Mar 23, 2013

    It may be slightly contrived, but it does serve to build a bridge between the film universe and the comic world. Definitely a book for the fans. Read Full Review
