Favorite Book This Week: Star Trek: Khan Ruling in Hell #3

All books were new in stores on 12/8/10


Batgirl #16 
Written by Bryan Q. Miller, Pencils by Dustin Nguyen, Inks by Derek Fridolfs

This was a very fun issue. Solid writing, good art. I liked seeing more of Wendy, and I enjoyed the banter. I also like that these villains are just crummy punks with one good gimmick.


Dark Tower: The Gunslinger- The Little Sisters of Eluria #1
Written by Peter David & Robin Furth
Pencils by Luke Ross

When the comic adaptations of the Dark Tower started with The Gunslinger Born a few years ago I collected the first arc, then quit. This seems like the start of a decent version of the novella The Little Sisters of Eluria. I like the art in this issue much more than the art in the earlier issues. I didn't like that they revealed the look of the Sisters in the first part! Way to defuse the suspense, guys.


Star Trek: Khan Ruling in Hell #3
Written by Scott & David Tipton
Art by Fabio Mantovani

This is such a great book. The continuing story is moving in its simplicity, the art continues to be great, and the writing is perfect. It's a fantastic story, starring a compelling character. Khan's steady descent from optimism into fury is amazing to read. I approve.
