The Next Generation crew of Star Trek are boldly going to The Mirror Universe! Enter a sleeveless, jacked Captain Jean-Luc Picard, sporting an “evil” goatee, and you have a decidedly new fangled take on the classic Mirror Universe concept made popular by the original Star Trek series.
The Mirror Universe has never been this buff, and the mainstream press took notice:
“A super-buff Picard in a sleeveless muscle shirt? Bring it on.” – LA Times
“Look at those arms. Look at that facial hair. Clearly, this isn’t the Captain Jean-Luc Picard you grew up with, but you can be damned sure that he’s about to become your new favorite. Somehow The Next Generation has gone all Mirror Universe, and we can’t wait to see it in action!” – io9
I’m sorry … did you miss the word “sleeveless” and “jacked” and “Picard” above? Because yes. Very, very yes. – NPR
Over 100,000 copies of the Star Trek: The Next Generation: Mirror Broken FCBD prelude issue were given away on Free Comic Book Day and caused a stir among both the media and fans. As a direct result, the debut issue of the “Mirror Broken” limited series has sold out at the distributor level in advance of the on sale date.
Fans can still head to their comic shop on launch day to snatch up a copy before they are gone or purchase the issue digitally, but for those who miss out on a first edition and would like to collect this groundbreaking issue in print, a second printing has been issued to meet the demand of this highly anticipated debut.
The FCBD prelude was recently spotlighted by multiple outlets as one of the “can’t-miss” giveaways at your local comic shop with the LA Times, NPR, Nerdist, io9, Ain’t It Cool News, CBR, and many more adding it to their top picks.
“This year is the 30th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and this comic from IDW is the perfect way to celebrate the occasion.” – Nerdist
