Fuggedaboud Dork Reign! Screw Final Crapsis!! The Freaks have just read the REAL comic book event of the year!! Join ’em for an in-depth analysis of IDW’s Star Trek mini-series “Countdown”, the prequel for the much-anticipated and much-feared J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie!! Do the comics help to ease the feelings of dread that Scott and Chris have been feeling for months, or are they simply another cheesy pointless tie-in to make a quick buck? Should they now read the IDW Terminator: Salvation prequel mini? Join the Dorky Duo and find out if they are holding their breath or holding their noses!
