Legendary writer J.M. DeMatteis returns to Star Trek for the first time in nearly 40 years! And it'll be well worth the wait, as he tackles two of the franchise's most popular concepts: Khan Noonien Singh and the Mirror Universe!

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 26, 2020

    Matthew Dow Smith infuses the art with a lot of panels of an introspective Khan thinking about his next moves in a universe ruled by duplicity and double dealing. Those shots look great as the reader connects with Khan and his mission. All of the art is brilliant in its tone with panels filled with details and the Kirk/Khan moments are some of the best visually. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Aug 27, 2020

    I have said many times in the past, that comics work best when the writing and art work in conjunction. If that doesn't happen, then I can handle great writing with poor art, but not the reverse. Thankfully, the fantastically clever writing of DeMatteis is strong enough to carry the, at times, less than stellar art. This book is an interesting read of a Trek universe that never was.

    It's a fascinating mold to cast Khan in, and one that leaves me wishing Hell's Mirror was a miniseries instead of a one-shot, as good of a one-shot it is. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nathan Simmons Aug 27, 2020

    'Hell's Mirror' tells maybe the most human Mirror Universe story in Star Trek canon. For that alone, it's worth a read for fans. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Aug 27, 2020

    This is a comic with great potential that is ultimately let down by the narrative. The impressive art work, especially by colorist Candice Han, just isn't enough to push this franchise comic from Fan Only to a Must Read. Read Full Review
