Will it be an all original take on Khan's exile on Ceti Alpha V, or will it be an adaptation of Greg Cox's Star Trek novel The Rise & Fall of Khan Noonien Singh- Better to Rule in Hell?

I think my interest has been piqued. All that's needed now is some soft Corinthian leather.
The preceding post is OK to print.

Interesting cover with Khan, then there's, prsumably, his bride, Marla Macgivers (pronouced like MacGyver in Space Seed) and, I think , Khan's stooge, Joachim from Star Trek II.
It'll be interesting if the story reveals that Joachim is actually Khan's son because, in an interview in Star Trek Communicator, Judson Scott, who played Joachim revealed that early drafts of the Wrath of Khan had that idea in the script.

Although, I would rather read about his rise in the 20h century.

I bought it today as well. Haven't read it yet, but did thumb through it. The artwork looks amazing. Can't wait to see how the story bridges Khan's personality and look from "Space Seed" to "The Wrath of Khan".

I enjoyed the first issue. I had the same issue I often have with comics by the Tiptons, in that it was a bit text light for my liking (maybe I'm just spoilt by how much John Byrne manages to squeeze into all his issues?). However, in this case I think the art was strong (and very attractive) and what story there was was justified in being minimal to let the setting and scenario take the reader along. I look forward to the rest of the series (but hope the story gets a more depth going forward)

I read it last night and really, really enjoyed it. Loved the artwork, especially the flashback sequences from "Space Seed". The Botany Bay landing was very cool. The months counting up to six (when Ceti Alpha VI explodes) was a nice, foreboding touch.

Stupid question: Why didn't anyone notice that Ceti Alpha VI exploded?

Top ten reason's why no one noticed that Ceti Alpha VI exploded:

10. It occurred during union break at observation outpost.
9. It was overlooked due to galaxy wide crisis.
8. The last time the Enterprise was there they only mapped up to Ceti Alpha V (also explains why the the Reliant didn't notice it was missing!)
7. Q's constant interference!
6. Romulan cloaking device shielded all evidence of the explosion.
5. Secret plan by starfleet to eliminate the last of the 21st "supermen".
4. Klingon created distraction while placing all tribbles on Ceti Alpha V and exploding on purpose.
3. Those on Ceti Alpha VI noticed!!!!
2. All the energy was absorbed by a 2nd "Doomsday" device.
1. It would have TOTALLY ruined Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan!!!
