Reading: Star Trek, "My Enemy, My Ally"

In honor of the recent passing of Leonard Nimoy, thought I would break out some classic Star Trek.  I have had Diane Duane's My Enemy, My Ally on the shelf for some time, and I figured a Duane story about the Romulan Space Empire would have some good parts in it for Mr. Spock.  

Keep on boldy going on, Mr. Nimoy.

Reading -- Star Wars 2: World Of Fire

Marvel's Star Wars was a bit before my time, but the little of it I have read, I have enjoyed.  Considering all of the hoopla lately regarding Star Wars returning to the Marvel fold, I thought it appropriate to break out this paperback collection.  The oddly named Star Wars 2 collects the story "World Of Fire," which was originally printed in the UK Star Wars Weekly 107-109.  This collection is black and white, with the panels rearranged somewhat to fit the format.

If you would like to learn more about the original Marvel Star Wars, I would recommend checking out the Star Wars Monthly Monday podcast, over on the Two True Freaks Internet Radio Network.  Scott Gardner and Chris Honeywell covered every issue of the series, plus the "wild space" stuff like these UK stories.  In fact, they covered "World Of Fire" in episode 60!  Give it a listen, you will not be disappointed.
