Naked Reading 2023 VII

I've updated my Naked Reading 2023 page with my latest comic read, the first comics series based on Star Trek's newest TV series, Strange New Worlds, The Illyrian Enigma.

A follow-up to the first season cliff-hanger ending, this four-issue series gave us some nice world-building backstory that revealed a lot about the enigmatic Illyrian species, as well as the well-known Vulcans. Spock and Captain Pike enjoy time in the focus, but all the main characters get some input into a story that lived the energy and character of the TV series. An enjoyable entry that did a good job expanding the Star Trek universe while bridging the two TV seasons.

That's my mini-review, but I've also written more extensive thoughts on my book review blog.

Plus again as a little bonus for my Patreon supporters, I've shared some alternate takes of this self-portrait there.
