Star Trek: Kahn (graphic novel) - Paul's Review

*I received this book as an eARC from Diamond Book Distributors/IDW Publishing on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: Star Trek: Kahn

Contributors:  Mike Johnson, Claudia Balboni
Publication Date: June 3, 2014

Synopsis: Witness the shocking origin of Khan Noonien Singh from his earliest years through his rise to power during the epic Eugenics Wars! Behold the events that led to his escape from Earth aboard the Botany Bay! Learn the truth behind his re-awakening by Admiral Marcus and Section 31! It's the origin of Star Trek's greatest villain!


Review: The graphic novels that have accompanied the recent Star Trek reboot movies have been pretty good. They've shown behind the scenes action and expanded on the movie characters' stories. They also take time to reference the rest of the Star Trek universe, especially past series. 

This graphic novel expands on the Kahn character we meet in the second reboot Star Trek movie, Into Darkness. It's really interesting to compare this graphic novel to the original series episode involving Kahn and the second original movie. 

I give this graphic novel a 4/5 and recommend it to fans of Star Trek, both the new and old.
