And speaking of Star Trek comic strips...

The official Star Trek website is introducing an online comic strip, The Trek Life, about three Star Trek fans. They have three sample strips online and the regular series will begin the week of August 8.

I don't know how long you can keep something like this going. I know there are other geek culture comic strips, but none dealing with only one series, as far as I know. One promising sign, though... David Reddick, the strip's creator, is aware of the books, not just the TV series and movies. Two of the three sample strips deal with the starship design contest for the Titan novels.

As to how funny the strip is... well, three strips is a pretty small sample. It's hard to judge. But it's already clearly better than the work of a certain cartoonist who advertises his website in a certain official magazine devoted to a certain TV series who shall go unnamed.
