The Star Trek AOS comics continue to be fun (I’m at 7 of 13 volumes, and I’m gonna be big bummed once I’m done). The latest one had Spock going through Pon Farr, but because he can’t physically return to Vulcan he just goes absolutely balls-to-the-wall cuckoobananas. His eyes start glowing red, I kid you not, and goes to live in a volcano with a bunch of other Pon Farr crazed Vulcans on New Vulcan.
Anyways, what it lacks in quality Spirk content like the original had it makes up for in gratuitous shots of topless Spock and a creative solution to the problem of Super Pon Farr. It also has a nice little scene where Uhura is like “I know the moment you fell in love with me was when I beat you at chess”, which follows a scene where she’s trying to reason with him and he just, like, almost tosses her into a pool of lava. I just want to gently take her hand and say “He literally didn’t tell you he has a betrothed. He didn’t tell you about Pon Farr. He keeps hiding things from you. When you performed emafa kito he got to see your most intense memory from childhood, but did you ever get to see his? You almost got into a fight with his dad because Sarek thought Spock should remain on New Vulcan before he accidentally kills someone on the Enterprise. This isn’t love. This is you being stubborn because you have a chronic need to not doubt yourself, and Spock wanting to have his cake and eat it, too. YOU CAN DO SO MUCH BETTER.”
