If only Ricardo Montalban were still around to record a voice track for an audible version. Alas.
Things seem simple enough with the Botany Bay being set down on Ceti Alpha V. Despite the dangers of the planet, Khan was determined to prove himself worth of the challenge of taming the world and establishing a new empire for himself. The comics go on to show some of the internal conflict among the Augments as a rival faction began to ferment unrest and eventually go on to challenge Khan's rule. But of course we all know that eventually a catastrophic event alters the planet's orbit and turns it from a dangerous jungle to a desert wasteland. It's quite the transition indeed.
I do appreciate the efforts to continually present Khan as the cultured and almost benevolent dictator that he is. After all, his role as their leader stems from the knowledge that he is far superior to all others, even his fellow Augments. And in this regard the writers certainly get credit in their efforts to script their Khan as close as possible to Ricardo Montalban's original portrayal of the character. And that's never an easy thing to do - but I think it's safe to say that the writers managed to get us most of the way there while our imaginations took over from that point.
Admittedly some of the internal struggles between the Augments seemed ridiculously petty.Read more ›
Anyhow, the Tiptons do an excellent job at constructing dialogue that fits well with Khan's character, and artist Fabio Mantovani very ably captures the looks of both the original followers and the new followers spolighted in the film - nice to see Joachim in the group. As the individual issues read fairly quickly, it didn't take much time to finish this collection. That definitely made me question the cost of the book, but it's always fun to revisit the Star Trek universe.
