Official Description:

Witness the shocking origin of Khan Noonien Singh from his earliest years through his rise to power during the epic Eugenics Wars! Behold the events that led to his escape from Earth aboard the Botany Bay! Learn the truth behind his re-awakening by Admiral Marcus and Section 31! It’s the origin of Star Trek’s greatest villain!

My Take:

This graphic novel answers some questions that Star Trek: Into the Darkness brought up. For fans of the movies the question went how to Khan go from this:

To this:

It’s tries to give an answer and skirts around it until the end. The questions new fans, and perhaps old ones, may ask is who is Khan? Where did he come from and how did he become a super crazy genius, with fantastic abilities? Well if these are your questions, and I’m sure these questions are answered elsewhere, but this comic answers these question. The comic version has Khan standing trial for his crimes, the majority is flashback. Everything is ok, the art is fine, the back story is interesting. This is a quick read, it’s not the best, but I like how it ties everything together.

*I did receive this book for free for an honest review.
