                            Star Wars #1: Fresh water from an old well

                            Dark Horse has long been the exemplar of how a smart publisher can make pretty great comics out of licensed properties, even those that might not even seem all that worthwhile to begin with. (Compare, for example, Dark Horse’s first few batches of Predator comics to Predator 2, or the publisher’s Predator Vs. Aliens comics to the eventual films bearing that title.) Certainly the company has had its greatest success with the Star Wars license; if there are any other relationships that have been as long and as fruitful as the Dark Horse/Star Wars one, I’m hard-pressed to think of them.

                              J.J. Abrams Talks Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek 3

                              In just a few short months, we’ll get to trek into darkness with the crew of the Enterprise for J.J. Abrams’ follow-up Star Trek Into Darkness. He spoke withCraveOnline about the film and as usual his lips stayed sealed about specifics – he wouldn’t even talk about the themes of the film.

                              “There’s nothing worse for me than reading what the theme of a book is or a movie and then reading it and being like: that’s the theme. The theme is you feel it…I do think that by default this a deeper movie. It’s certainly a bigger movie because the first one was kind of the origin story which is great because it’s so easy. You just introduce people and yet now they know each other so it has to go deeper.” More
