By Bob Calhoun Harlan Ellison showing up at “Star Trek” Las Vegas is a hell’s frozen over moment. It’s something that seemed impossible just a year ago, or ten years ago, but there he was walking through some shuttle bay doors and onto the spacious stage at the Rio Hotel and Casino on Thursday after […]
Last week, I came across this image on Google Plus, and a lengthy (200+, multiple days) discussion ensued. Who would win? The USS Enterprise, or an Imperial Star Destroyer? Well, in the sake of universal peace among two very disparate yet similar geek tribes (or possibly a flame war for the ages), I will endeavor […]
Tumblr, Twitter and what was left of LiveJournal reacted with shock and then outrage this morning as news of a deleted shower scene starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the new Star Trek film was revealed. Star Trek Into Darkness director JJ Abrams made the shocking revelation on the Conan O’Brien show, and showed a brief clip […]

Here’s a comic from my brothers’ collection, the type of comic kids read back in the 1960s and 70s. We didn’t care about condition or collectibility, we just read the comics, tossed them in a cupboard somewhere, and maybe re-read them when we were bored.
