Star trek: red­shirt’S lit­tle book of doom

SFX - - Reviews -

A mildly amus­ing Star Trek gift book!

Fea­tures 55 dif­fer­ent sin­gle-im­age car­toons, drawn by Aus­trian self-con­fessed nerd Anna-Maria Jung.

They fol­low the daily dis­as­ters and mis­for­tunes of a hap­less red­shirt.

Maybe this is blood­thirsty of us, but it’s a bit dis­ap­point­ing they don’t all end in a vi­o­lent death…

Most of the mishaps are much more low-key, like putting a red shirt in your whites wash, or for­get­ting to lock the shower door.

Writer Robb Pearl­man clearly knows his Trek, but some of the top­i­cal gags (like one about hip­sters) are a bit wince-in­duc­ing.

Best bit: re­peated ap­pear­ances by a cut­sey car­toon Gorn. Give him his own spin-off book!
