This October, the Star Trek: Voyager: Mirrors and Smoke one-shot serves as the first of several excursions into the realm of dark doppelgängers, followed in time by one-shots focused on The Original Series and Deep Space Nine, respectively.

Written by Paul Allor (G.I. Joe) with painted art by Star Trek fan-favorite J.K. Woodward (illustrator of the beloved Mirror Broken storyline), Voyager: Mirrors and Smoke introduces Captain Janeway of the Voyager, a rebel ship stranded in the Delta Quadrant, far from the ruins of the Terran Empire. When Janeway crowns herself Pirate Queen of the Quadrant, the locals – including scavengers Neelix and Kes – won’t give up without a fight. Amid this conflict, the crew of the Voyager has a second problem on their hands: just who is the Terran calling herself Annika Hansen, and can she be trusted?

Preview night has kicked off at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 and Top Shelf Comics have big plans for the whole weekend, including a timely release that, you'll agree, seems extremely important these days. George Takei's "They Called Us Enemy" is one of those releases proving the comic book and graphic novel medium can mix art and storytelling in a way that transcends what people generally expect of the average page of panels. It becomes someone's voice. In this case, a voice baring a man's pain so that we may learn lessons before history repeats itself in an ugly way. 
In a stunning graphic memoir, actor/author/activist George Takei revisits his haunting childhood in American concentration camps, as one of 120,000 Japanese Americans imprisoned by the U.S. government during World War II. Experience the forces that shaped an American icon — and America itself — in this gripping tale of courage, country, loyalty, and love.

Shi-Shi the Tiny Guardian Kickstarter from Bigshot Toys
Many people these days will tell you the odds are stacked against you. You can slave away for a large company who shows you no loyalty or you can struggle on your own, throwing ideas at the wall hoping something will stick. Bigshot Toyworks have always played both sides of the fence, taking on large projects for major players in the collectibles market like threeA, Sideshow and Pop Culture Shock while developing their own creative properties. Today, Bigshot launched their newest creation; Shi-Shi The Tiny Guardian, and from the looks of it, she's already got a few hundred fans!

Bigshot was already all in on this new project, having been knee deep in development for over 2 years and deciding that they would enter into their Kickstarter with all points primed and ready to go straight into production when their meager goal was reached. Now that their Kickstarter has earned over twice that goal, backers can be guaranteed some adorable toys are coming their way, along with the promise of more fun from Shi-Shi's seemingly epic universe! Until that time, let's check out what's up for offer at the moment...
