Comics crossover: Star Trek Next Generation + Doctor Who

Yeh. You got it.

So funny. 11th Doctor, Amy, and Rory finally meet the crew of the Enterprise in the latest issue (#3) of this limited series Assimilation2 by comics publisher IDW. The main storylines are in unusual watercolor-like panels. And there's a stylized flash back to Star Trek (original series). Aaaa. I can just picture what a time the creators must have had thinking up what would be the funniest situations and interactions so that fans would just mutter "Classic!" over and over to themselves reading this. Not that the storyline itself is comedic, mind you. You see there are BORG and CYBERMEN. !

Omg. The "cliffhanger". I squeed (silently) and now waiting for next issue.

Recommend *****!!! It's a collectible before it even hits the stands.
