Notes from the Manager
Not long after this strip went live, I learned that Variety is a bunch of non-source-checking asshats: J.J. Abrams has signed to produce a Star Trek film, and has an option to direct it, but they're not necessarily doing the Starfleet Academy thing. Which is good, I think, because I don't give a rat's ass about young Kirk and Spock. I'd rather see a top-down remake with the original characters recast than some revisionist history Smallville in Space sort of thing.

They’re showing all kinds of too much in this teaser trailer, I think, but it looks pretty great… despite the stupid character designs on the villains. (I was one of those people who enjoyed Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man flick quite a bit; the major clunky parts being where they seemed to think they needed to change up Uncle Ben’s death and other bits of canon, just to make it different from Raimi’s version.)
Bonus points: this is the best Spidey’s costume has ever looked in film. I hope Sony never changes the suit again (unless they do the black costume for a movie or two).
