Star Trek #12 is the finale to the two-part Tribbles story line. Yes, I’m sure you’re all familiar with the OLD or CLASSIC “Trouble with Tribbles” story. You even know that Captain Sisko & company revisited that episode in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. But, as they say, this ain’t your father’s Star Trek!

Writer Mike Johnson puts a WHOLE new spin on the Tribbles tale, one that is probably the furthest yet removed from its original predecessor. Guided by Roberto Orci, this pretty much original story sticks to some of the same beats that that the original episode does, but that’s where the similarities end. Johnson takes us almost literally from one end of the Star Trek timeline to the other, and includes SO MUCH of the “new” Star Trek history, it’s a wonder that it didn’t take a dozen scriptwriters to proofread this comic.

WOW! Cobra #7 is really gonna put you on the edge of your seat! While we don’t find out who the new Cobra Commander is — that happens next month in G.I. Joe #8 — we do get some big time payoff. It’s getting down to the wire and business is picking up!

Mike Costa does a great job writing what basically ends up being Die Hard in the G.I. Joe headquarters. Secrets are revealed, the body count rises, and the person that I thought was gonna be Cobra Commander is….well, let’s just say it’s not going to be who I thought it was. Just an all around great issue for the penultimate chapter of this year-long storyline. After this issue, the dynamic of this whole book is going to change a full 180 degrees. I can’t wait to see where it goes next.
