    Graphic Policy - Steve Roger Mar 12, 2016

    Artistically, this book was very detailed and amazing! Tony Shasteen and Davide Mastrolonardo did a great job in bringing the characters to life on paper. Everyones likeness was on point as well as the coloring it all fit and nothing visually looked out of place. I look forward to seeing more of their artwork through the remaining 3 books of the “Legacy of Spock.” If you're a Trekkie, you are going to enjoy this book. If you are new to the Star Trek Universe, but are familiar with 2009 Star Trek movie reboot then you wont be lost and you too will enjoy this book. I give it a must buy! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Kevin Given Mar 23, 2016

    Tony Shasteen does a great job with his artistic ability. You can actually feel Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto assuming the Spock future and Spock present roles as they come alive on the printed page. All characters are perfectly rendered. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Mar 9, 2016

    I have been critical of the Trek comic books, mainly due to my dislike of the new time line. Slowly, over time, I have seen that the new timeline serves up a number of holes that can be exploited for new adventures, regardless whether it's the newer cast as seen in the Academy story, or a remembrance of what made Trek great in the first place.

    Flickering Myth - Villordsutch Mar 10, 2016

    The Legacy of Spock could be one of the greatest comic book tributes to Spock and Leonard Nimoy around, if it continues to build like this. The mood already set in Part One of this series is perfect and I'm looking forward to where Mike Johnson is going to take the rest of it. Read Full Review

  • 7.0 - John McCubbin Mar 8, 2016

    Star Trek #55 marks the start of a new and important arc for the ongoing series, acting as a fitting tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy, whilst also taking the older Spock character in a bold new direction. Add to this some intriguing development elsewhere, and you're left with a product that is sure to get better as it moves forward, even if this issue lacked that extra level of tension and drama.
