    Again, J.K. Woodward's art shines in this issue. His painted style of art captures each character perfectly and gives the book a real feeling. In other words, the world he's created in this series has a lived in look to it. I've said before that it actually has the look of a television program. It's as if we're spending a Saturday evening in front of those old tube televisions watching this play out. It only adds to the nostalgia of seeing these two franchises come together.

    Assimilation2 is the crossover event of the year. It is a great bit of fan service that we have been wanting for years to see. The Who and Trek crews combine to face the biggest threat either have ever seen, and it is exhilarating. With two issues to go, I expect a nonstop thrill ride. Read Full Review

This is no doubt familiar to Trekkies, but its exciting new ground for those unfamiliar. Read Full Review

    Writers Scott and David Tipton weave everything from the Borg War to Bad Wolf, deftly using a reader's background knowledge to give this issue more depth as the Doctor tries to save universes against impossible odds. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Oct 24, 2012

    As a casual Doctor Who fan, I did like the reference to Bad Wolf. David Tennant fans will recognize the allusion. I hope it works into something great. But this is the Matt Smith Doctor. That's an old storyline from a past era of greatness. This is only an okay read. Read Full Review
