As regular readers of The K will know, two TV mega-franchises have decided to join forces to bring us Assimilation2, the first crossover between Star Trek: The Next Generation and Doctor Who.
Just to tease you…
When the Federation’s most terrifying enemy strikes an unholy alliance with one of the Doctor’s most hated antagonists, the result is devastation on a cosmic scale! Spanning the ends of space and time itself, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise find themselves joining forces with the Doctor and his companions, with the fate of the galaxy hanging in the balance!
The comic is of course brought to us by IDW and sounds pretty fascinating, we think you’ll agree.
Why is this relevant to you today, our dear reader? Well, the writer of the comic, Tony Lee, is doing a signing at Forbidden Planet’s London Megastore on the 30th of May.
To quote one Brian Butterfield, “that’s not all”.
You may have seen on the advertisements for Forbidden Planet on the main page that there’s a variant cover of the first issue available for pre-order. It’s this variant cover that will be getting signed at the event, as it’s exclusive to Forbidden Planet.
I won’t be going to this one but if it sounds like it’s up your street, then by all means go on down!
