Forbidden Planet Launches Doctor Who/Star Trek Variant Cover Giving Everyone The Sniffles

I blame Chris Bachalo. He started it around the time of Death, The High Cost Of Living, giving cute characters a smudge on their nose. Possibly to suggest some kind of indentation, a raising of the nose, even freckling. You know, cute.

The Terry Moore was also doing in it in Strangers In Paradise, and Bachalo’s inker Mark Buckingham adopted it on his own projects. And it started moving from delineating cute women to… well, it seems, old bald, grumpy Englishmen. And I’m sorry, but it makes Captain Picard look like he’s got a bad cold.

 

The Doctor is fine though. And Amy Pond? Tip top.

This is the Forbidden Planet variant cover to Star Trek Next Generation: Doctor Who: Assimilation Squared. Advising writer Tony Lee will be signing copies at the London Shaftesbury Avenue branch on the 30th of May.

Intriguingly, because Star Trek Next Generation comes first in the title, it can be legally distributed by IDW in the UK. If Doctor Who had come first, due to licensing restrictions, it wouldn’t.
