How much would you be willing to risk for freedom? Seventeen-year-old Yulia has been on the run with her mother and younger brother ever since her father disappeared five years ago, destroying their comfortable life as high-ranking Party scientists; however, the KGB doesn’t want Yulia because of her parents’ previous positions. They want her ability to read memories from inanimate objects. When she is captured and taken to the hidden KGB school for young psychics, Yulia is faced with a harsh choice: should she fight to live her life as freely even at the expense of her mother and brother or accept the life the Party dictates for people with her special abilities? Set in Soviet Moscow in 1963 and 1964, author Lindsay Smith explores the nature of true choice on a backdrop of the Cold War and Space Race.

“Laws change, depending on who’s making them -- Cardassians one day, Federation the next.  But, justice is justice.”  -- Constable Odo


The quote above is pretty stunning.  It’s not the kind of thing you would see in any other installment in the Star Trek franchise, unless it came out of the mouth of a villain or maybe a guest star whose opinion of Starfleet would change before the credits rolled.  Here, it’s coming from a series regular -- the station’s security officer, Odo -- and he’s basically saying that the laws of our heroic utopia and a brutally oppressive regime, who regarded war crimes as an icebreaker, are the same.  It’s a pretty important window into Odo, who, for the first two episodes, was something of an enigma.  He’s center stage in “A Man Alone,” and we really start seeing the character that would become not only a fan favorite, but arguably the most important person across two quadrants.

I have a confession . . . I play with dolls (or I used to, rather).  When I was a little boy, I fell in love with Barbie and anything pretty with long hair.  My parents would let me have Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Bionic woman dolls, but Barbie was for sissies and, therefore, not allowed.  Fortunately, my mother gave me a younger sister who shared my obsession with dolls, and I got to play with all of her dolls (including Barbie, snap!) under the guise of sibling bonding.  My childhood passion would turn into a lifelong love affair with the soulless, vapid totems of beauty.  I try to limit my collection to Wonder Woman and anything "special" or rare. (If anyone has an extra limited edition Robert Tonner Zombie Boy doll laying around . . . )

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:


Author Aidan Harte has gone from sculpting characters out of metal in his art to sculpting characters out of words in his debut novel, Irenicon, Book 1 in The Wave Trilogy, which will be released from Jo Fletcher Books/Quercus on April 1, 2014.  In advance of the book's release, the publishers have generously provided us with 5 (Yes, 5!) advance copies of the historical fantasy novel to give away to our readers.

Writer Zack Whedon and artist Georges Jeanty continue to be “big, damn heroes” to Browncoats everywhere this month by supplying us with another excellent issue of Serenity: Leaves on the Wind. The third issue of this series ratchets up the plot even more, pitting Mal and his crew against their old enemy, Jubal Early, and forcing our desperate characters to turn to a figure from the past in a last-ditch attempt for help against the almighty Alliance. Things couldn’t be more tense or exciting . . . it’s a mighty fine time to be a Serenity fan, isn’t it?
