For the first time ever, a visual presentation of the much-discussed, unrevised, unadulterated version of Harlan Ellison's award-winning Star Trek teleplay script, "The City on the Edge of Forever!" This Hugo- and Writer's Guild of America Award-winning teleplay has been much discussed for decades but only here can you see the story as Mr. Ellison originally intended!

    The book alone could be daily recommended on the art alone, but with the addition of a strong script by one of the greats of our time, Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever is hands down the best book of the year so far. It sets ups what next in such a way that we can't wait for next month. There is enough of a new take on this classic episode that it's almost as if we are reading, and seeing, an all original tale.

    As a fan of the show and a fan of comics, Im happy with the renders of the Forever Guardians, and other aspects. The art works, and the story is a great classic. Putting City on the Edge of Forever in your pull list is a no brainer. Read Full Review

    The City at the Edge of Foreveris a release made by creators who are at the top of their game, one that contains excellent storytelling, from top to bottom, front to back. The story is compelling, the art is exceptional work from all three of the artists involved, and the presentation and packaging of the collection is outstanding. Top notch storytelling, on all fronts, and highly recommended reading. Read Full Review

    IDW's adaptation of Harlan Ellison's original teleplay for Star Trek: The City on the Edge of Tomorrow gets off to a fabulous start as though it's too early to tell if this is a superior version than what aired it's certainly for the moment on par. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    I suppose that if I lived in a mirror universe, one where I had never watched Star Trek on television as a child while huddling against impending storms, one in which I had not watched "City on the Edge of Forever" at least a dozen times, then I might have had a different experience with this book. If I could travel back in time and alter my life story so that I had not watched Shatner and Nimoy in these roles so often that I know their faces better than I know my own, then I might have enjoyed this book more. But of course, I don't and I can't. That is my confession. When I read a story like this, one that I know so well, one that has shaped my sense of self, it is like looking into a mirror. I am bound to see myself looking back. Read Full Review
