Hi, I'm Wil, and I like blog post titles that are obnoxiously long. Thanks for stopping by, San Diego.
Star Trek: The Manga - Kakan ni Shinkou has been released, and is showing up in comic shops and book stores all over the place. I had a bit of a squee moment this weekend when Nolan and I found it in a Borders, marking the first time in my life as a writer that one of my books was stocked in the correct section.
My story kicks off the collection, and is described by Comic Book Bin thusly:
In Cura Te Ipsum, the U.S.S. Enterprise is crippled, far away from the nearest Federation Starbase, and badly in need of dilithium crystals. They find dilithium on a planet in the middle of a brutal civil war/blood feud. Captain James T. Kirk sees an opportunity to guide the planet's warring factions towards peace, but will he be violating the Federation's Prime Directive not to interfere in the affairs of non-Federation planets?
Comic Book Bin gives us an A-, and says:
Star Trek: the manga - Kakan ni Shinkou rings true enough to be more than fan fiction, and for all practical purposes contains some of the best Star Trek comics ever done. Veteran Trek creator Diane Duane, Trek actor Wil Wheaton, rising star of manga Bettina Kurkoski deliver star performances with their contributions to this volume.
I'll be at Golden Apple Comics this Wednesday with many of the other writers and artists for a Q&A and signing as we continue our SoCal tour:
