Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever

Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever

As many of you know, I love scifi and as a child Star Trek was my gateway drug into the marvelous world of scifi. One of my favorite Authors is the loveable curmudgeon Harlan Ellison. Knowing that, it should come as no surprise that the story “City on the Edge of Forever” was a big hit with me. What some Trek fans may not know is that Ellison’s story was altered ( due to the drug angle of the story ) when developed into the Trek episode of the same name. This graphic novel provides us with a more Ellison-version of the well-known episode.

The artwork is fantastic. Ellison’s story is actually better than the original TV episode. Having said that, I missed the stone circle and the drugs looked like something from the game Bejeweled. I give it 5 stars out of 5 and recommend it for the Trek, scifi, and Ellison fans.
