Der Band spielt während des zweiten Kinofilms "Into Darkness". In der Schlusssequenz erfahren wir, dass Khan wieder in Kyrostase versetzt worden ist. Der Band hier deckt als Fünfteiler Khans Backgroundstory ab. Man muss schon sagen: Khans REBOOTS Backgroundstory und die Eugenischen Kriege. Eingebettet wurde dies in eine Rahmenhandlung eines Gerichtsverfahrens bei der ein uns bekannter Anwalt die Anklage vertritt. Khan beginnt dann zu erzählen, von seiner Kindheit in den Elendsvierteln, seiner Entführung, seiner Ausbildung, die Zeit um die Kriege und letztlich des Auffindens durch Sektion 31...
- Was mir besonders aufstößt: Die Zeitlinie wurde wie bekannt ab den 2230ern verändert. Allerdings kümmert sich da so mancher recht wenig drum. Denn die Zeitlinie gilt bereits in der Vergangenheit vor den 2230ern verändert.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Set in the period of time covered by the last five minutes or so of Star Trek Into Darkness, the Khan graphic novel uses the trial of Khan Noonien Singh as a framing device to allow Khan himself to tell his story. In doing so, we are afforded a view of the legendary Eugenics Wars, the flight of the Botany Bay and the awakening of Khan in this new timeline. As such, we are provided with some answers and closure to what happened in the movie.
First of all, the graphic novel provides what I felt was a great justification for the recasting of Khan, one that I wish had made it into the movie. We discover in the future sections that when Khan was found, Section 31 and Admiral Marcus decided to change his physical form and wipe his memory, thus creating John Harrison. With this explanation, we see how the producers and director were able to say that Cumberbatch was playing John Harrison - at this point in time, he actually believes that is who he is. I cannot help but think that if this had been alluded to or even used in the movie, it would have softened some of the outcry from the fans. Having Harrison discover who he is at the same time we do would have made for a much more interesting character, IMHO. As such, the graphic novel makes up for one of the most glaring plotholes in the movie, for this fan, anyway.
The Eugenics War section was great, though nowhere near as satisfying as the treatment afforded to the era by Greg Cox' fantastic Eugenics Wars duology. It was still good to see the way that the world changed, watch the rise of the different genetically engineered superhumans and receive an explanation for how "simple" humans were able to force Khan and his people to run away aboard the Botany Bay.
In terms of the artwork, I found it to be hit and miss. Most of the portrayals of Khan (in both the Ricardo Montalban and the Cumberbatch form), and Kirk and Spock were fine, but at time the characters came across as flat and emotionless. The starships were well rendered, especially the Botany Bay, and it was nice to see the use of the classic Khan clothing from "Space Seed". Still, overall the artwork left me unimpressed.
Overall, Star Trek: Khan is a well written graphic novel that manages to lay to rest some of the more glaring plotholes in Into Darkness. The story and dialogue were well done, but the artwork left me cold. I gave Star Trek: Khan 3 magical personal transporters out of 5.
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.
The book takes place after the events of Star Trek: Into Darkness and Khan is standing trial. He is making a defense and as part of that he tells his story. As a child in India, he was put in a eugenics program. The program was to create a new breed of super soldiers and it was far too effective as Khan and his fellow classmates eventually overthrow the world's governments. Khan shows himself to be a natural leader even among these elites.
We then cut to Khan waking up with a new face and working for Admiral Marcus. This is a little jarring, but a little back story brings us up to date.
I think the first half was more interesting. I found the tie in stuff with the movie less necessary, but the art by Claudia Balboni is pretty good.
I was given a review copy of this graphic novel by Diamond Book Distributors and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
This book was originally published as 5 issues. I bought the first two on Kindle, with the intent of getting issues 3, 4 and 5 on Kindle as they were released. But for some reason, Kindle issue 3 was screwed up from day it was released in Dec 2013, and Amazon's only fix was to stop sales of it. They released 4 and 5 without any problem, but never fixed 3, with no explanation. Makes me very leery about buying any more comic series on Kindle. I had to know how the story ended, so when the paperback collection of all 5 issues came out, I bought it---which means I threw my money away on the Kindle issues 1 and 2.
