3.0 étoiles sur 5 Makes up for some of the film's shortcomings 14 juillet 2014
Par M. Joel Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Beyond what some consider to be an unfortunate (and hopefully unintended) parody of Wrath of Khan, many fans main problem with the last Star Trek movie, Into Darkness, was the way that Khan himself was handled. Having a very British actor play an Indian character who had been played by a Mexican in the Original Series brought outcries of whitewashing, regardless of how talented an actor Benedict Cumberbatch may be. Using such a legendary character was always going to be dangerous and how much of a pay-off the decision was is still up for debate amongst Star Trek fans (though for the majority of non-Star Trek fans I have spoken to the problem is nonexistent and most love the film). For those who were bothered by the plotholes and inconsistencies, though, the graphic novel Star Trek: Khan may provide some closure.

Set in the period of time covered by the last five minutes or so of Star Trek Into Darkness, the Khan graphic novel uses the trial of Khan Noonien Singh as a framing device to allow Khan himself to tell his story. In doing so, we are afforded a view of the legendary Eugenics Wars, the flight of the Botany Bay and the awakening of Khan in this new timeline. As such, we are provided with some answers and closure to what happened in the movie.

First of all, the graphic novel provides what I felt was a great justification for the recasting of Khan, one that I wish had made it into the movie. We discover in the future sections that when Khan was found, Section 31 and Admiral Marcus decided to change his physical form and wipe his memory, thus creating John Harrison. With this explanation, we see how the producers and director were able to say that Cumberbatch was playing John Harrison - at this point in time, he actually believes that is who he is. I cannot help but think that if this had been alluded to or even used in the movie, it would have softened some of the outcry from the fans. Having Harrison discover who he is at the same time we do would have made for a much more interesting character, IMHO. As such, the graphic novel makes up for one of the most glaring plotholes in the movie, for this fan, anyway.

The Eugenics War section was great, though nowhere near as satisfying as the treatment afforded to the era by Greg Cox' fantastic Eugenics Wars duology. It was still good to see the way that the world changed, watch the rise of the different genetically engineered superhumans and receive an explanation for how "simple" humans were able to force Khan and his people to run away aboard the Botany Bay.

In terms of the artwork, I found it to be hit and miss. Most of the portrayals of Khan (in both the Ricardo Montalban and the Cumberbatch form), and Kirk and Spock were fine, but at time the characters came across as flat and emotionless. The starships were well rendered, especially the Botany Bay, and it was nice to see the use of the classic Khan clothing from "Space Seed". Still, overall the artwork left me unimpressed.

Overall, Star Trek: Khan is a well written graphic novel that manages to lay to rest some of the more glaring plotholes in Into Darkness. The story and dialogue were well done, but the artwork left me cold. I gave Star Trek: Khan 3 magical personal transporters out of 5.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Intriguing But Disappointing 16 juillet 2014

The release last year of Star Trek Into Darkness has inspired interest yet again in one of the franchise's most memorable villains: Khan. In particular, the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch into the role made famous by Ricardo Montalban opened up both controversy and a new set of questions. Setting out to explore Khan's origins and answer some of those questions is this volume which collects the five issues of IDW's limited run series from late 2013 and early 2014. So does it serve the great Khan justice in telling his story?

The first three issues (or chapters as they're refereed to here) cover Khan's background leading up to the Eugenics Wars and the Botany Bay taking off from Earth, via the framing device of Khan being put on trial as part of off screen events towards the end of Into Darkness. It's worth keeping in mind that Khan's origins had already been explored in some depth thanks to not one but two novels written by Greg Cox (The Eugenics Wars, Vol. 1 (Star Trek) and The Eugenics Wars, Vol. 2 (Star Trek)) published a decade or so ago. Those novels recognized a basic problem of Khan's background: That Khan left Earth in the 1990s during the Eugenics Wars but the Eugenics Wars didn't take place in our world (or any of the later Trek episodes set during the period). So to portray it one has two options: work into the real world or literally rewrite history. While the two Cox novels instead turned it into a shadowy conflict often behind real world events, this takes the latter option with less than spectacular results.

There are fundamentally two problems. The first is that to fit in the quarter century of time the first three issues cover from our first meeting Khan as a homeless amputee in 1971 to New Delhi to the Botany Bay launching in 1996 which means that the story is forced to jump around a considerable amount meaning that we get really only the broad strokes of Khan's life and events. More especially, we're given only brief glimpses of the Eugenics Wars themselves which, while presented as something akin to a world war in the narration Khan gives, is visually represented by a handful of action movie style set pieces. That fact means that the significant rewrite of history done here never quite works (and interestingly the story itself doesn't keep to its own continuity with a character appearing in a location within pages of it having been destroyed).

The second problem is the characterization of Khan himself. We're presented visually with the Ricardo Montalban Khan in this section of the story but the writing never quite captures that Khan. Instead we're presented with what very much seems to be the Cumberbatch Khan in terms of dialogue and actions but simply presented with Montalban's face. The result is an odd one and, combined with the issue mentioned in the last paragraph, does considerably undermine a large portion of the story.

Where things get better is in the final two issues/chapters where we meet the Cumberbatch Khan and it fills in some of the events that would eventually lead towards Into Darkness. Even here, the story is reduced to presenting broad strokes though we do get to see some of the pivotal events that tie into the film's plot. Amongst those is a confrontation between Khan and Admiral Marcus that answers perhaps the single biggest question from the film about Khan's change of appearance. These latter two chapters are the biggest highlight of the volume and really what makes it work reading.

Artwork of course plays a big role here and arguably here the volume is more successful. All of the characters from Into Darkness are recognizable with Cumberbatch's Khan, Kirk and Spock being especially well represented. The Montalban Khan is recognizable though it's only in a couple of moments that the artwork really captures a good likeness of him. The artwork also makes some nice calls back to elements established in some of the original Khan appearances from the ship that finds him to the look and feel of the Botany Bay itself. The artwork at times makes up for what the writing lacks though even in it can't make up for all the faults.

In the end then, Star Trek: Khan is intriguing if disappointing. Despite attempting to present the Eugenics Wars as a massive conflict and Khan as a grand ruler, the way both are presented here are disappointing due in large part to trying to do too much with too little space and the lack of proper characterization for Khan himself. While things improve in the latter part of the story and there's some good artwork on show, it's not enough to really salvage the earlier flaws. In a way, one almost wants to take those latter parts and combine them with the two Cox novels to create a definitive story for Khan because, for all of the efforts made here, this isn't it.

I enjoyed the premise of the story, but I did not expect a comic book format ill equipped to be read easily on a 7" kindle.

if you purchase the book you may well need to buy a magnifying glass.

The purchase of a comic was probably partly my own fault for not reading the description more thoroughly, but graphic art is still a comic at heart.

The format is the only reason for three stars, the story was OK

The graphic novels that have accompanied the recent Star Trek reboot movies have been pretty good. They've shown behind the scenes action and expanded on the movie characters' stories. They also take time to reference the rest of the Star Trek universe, especially past series.

This graphic novel expands on the Kahn character we meet in the second reboot Star Trek movie, Into Darkness. It's really interesting to compare this graphic novel to the original series episode involving Kahn and the second original movie.

I give this graphic novel a 4/5 and recommend it to fans of Star Trek, both the new and old.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Overall a bit eh 27 juin 2014

This comic goes into the back story of Khan, showing how he came to be in the latest movie Star Trek: Into Darkness. It shows him through childhood and then selection, and the training he received in order to become the man who becomes Khan, then continuing on to take the delicate issue of the change in appearance and making it part of the plot – first making it seem like it shall be a dramatic turn of events, but then sadly falling by the wayside.

My main focus in graphic novels is often the graphics, and these, I felt, were slightly disappointing within the comic. While I don’t mind when comics based on a tv show or movie aren’t perfect representations of the actor playing the character, it is then hoped that this is to show more emotion or give the characters their own sense of self within the comic verse. Through many sections in the comic, the artwork was both fairly disappointing in representing the actors, but also lacking on the page in its own self.

The plot however was decent, regardless of the brief glance over how Khan’s appearance changed so dramatically. It does an excellent job of showing Khan’s pivotal moments and how he cares for some while having such blatant disregard for most. That said, this is only a comic for those who have seen the film, as it would be rather lacking for someone simply picking up the graphic novel.

Overall I would have liked more detail within the illustrations, and pacing throughout the novel for more impact, and to make us feel more sympathy for the character.
