QMx’s “Trekkies” comic strip. Because FUN.

Back in February, I blabbed a bit about Quantum Mechanix’s forthcoming line of “Trekkies Q-Pop” figures. These things crack me up (in the good way), and I’ve been (patiently?) waiting for a chance to order the first in the series, which will depict everybody’s favorite starship captain, Jimmy T. Kirk:

I just love whimsical, even goofy stuff like this. 🙂

What seems to have escaped notice is a series of comic strips drawn and written by the figures’ creator, artist Mohammad Haque, with the familiar Trek characters rendered in the figures’ style:

C’mon. If you can’t at least smile at that, you have no soul.

So far, there are five strips, the most recent of which was posted to the QMx site on July 15th. You can check out all of the strips here: QMx Online: Trekkies

Like the “QUOGS” style that was unleashed a few years ago, I think this version of the characters lends itself to fun projects like comics, kids books, greeting cards, and other fun stuff. Here’s hoping the style catches on and we see it used elsewhere.

Maybe then, I’ll be able to do one of my dream projects:

KIRKPOCALYPSE NOW!

Hey. A guy can dream, right?

    Awesome! Haque’s the guy who drew the long-running Applegeeks webcomic, which was fantastic. I know he joined QMx as a designer, but it’s great to see him doing comics again.
