Following up on last years hugely successful "Strange New Worlds" photonovel, John Byrne once again sets sail aboard the Starship: Enterprise, this time with an ongoing, bi-monthly series that begins by going through the looking glass to tell the story of what happened after the classic "Mirror, Mirror" episode of the original series. The crew discovers two strangers in their midst, and quickly learns that one has made a pact with one of James Kirk's oldest foes. "The Mirror, Cracked" is the title, and the action unfolds in May!

    In closing, I just want to say that this photonovel/comic was quite an intense experience and that I'm definitely onboard to read more comics like these, and hopefully IDW is successful in this endeavour. Read Full Review

    I had a ball with this. Once I got over the substitute artwork, I began to really enjoy the story. All the characters had the right voicing and motivations, the main plot was worthy of a full episode, and it belonged in comics in this style. John Byrne is clearly aware of the comics medium (Duh, we was part of the greatest titles in comics) and here he stretches his abilities and delivers a story that delivers the goods. If you want a new adventure in the Original Series universe, pick up Star Trek New Visions: The Mirror, Cracked. Read Full Review

    Star Trek: New Visions is a unique and interesting way of following up on classic episodes. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    John Byrne again uses the fumetti comic approach to craft a sequel to a classic Trek episode, in this case "Mirror, Mirror." Perhaps the novelty has worn off since the annual, or maybe it's just that the pacing of this story is all over the map, but this issue doesn't prove very satisfying. Read Full Review

    To be honest, I don't know who this is for. Die hard Trek fans will buy it because it says Star Trek on the cover and lovers of kitsch might like to titter at the sheer weirdness of the project, but it's a missed opportunity and a waste of a strong story idea. I'd really hoped for dilithium crystals, but instead was given Tribble dung. Read Full Review
