The Winter Soldier Poster

One of my favorite movies of 2013, Star Trek Into Darkness, came as quite a surprise to me. I noticed that this movie has been met with mixed reviews, the more negative being from long time fans of the many series. I have also been a fan of the original series and TNG for quite some time, but I tend to welcome changes and new storytelling concepts with open arms. The movie is not without its flaws, but I was able to view it as its own universe, without getting hung up on what is and is not canon. One of the issues fans took to this reinterpretation, was that one of Star Trek’s most well known villains, Khan Noonien Singh, was portrayed by British actor, Benidict Cumberbatch. Star Trek: Khan is a 5 part mini-series that serves as an origin story that will jump back and forth between his early years and the present day, but will basically bridge the nearly 300 year gap between his upbringing, leading up to Into Darkness.

Even to this day, I find myself reading comics about characters of which I have no previous experience or knowledge. This is the fun of back-issue bin diving: finding new heroes, stories and universes which bring us sheer joy and spark our imaginations! Earlier this year, I shared with you my very first experience reading a book about the cyborg, Deathlok, in the far-flung future of 1990. Now, another hero from days yet-to-pass comes before me in the pages of Amazing Adventures published in November 1975. It stars Killraven, a long-haired man living in a future world where humanity is dominated by Martian invaders. One of my most valued tenets in the creative arts is the idea that a good story can stand on its own merits, not dependent on any prior knowledge of the characters or their history. If this story can achieve such a feat, then I am likely to value it as a strong work of art. Let’s enjoy this issue together, my friends, and hope that the story gives us some solid insights into Killraven, Warrior of the Worlds!
