Jokerside’s occasional review sets can’t resist a game, not least the end of the Game of Thrones. The genre TV phenomenon of the 21st century set itself a steep challenge for its eighth season.

Joker Series of the Month:
Resurgent Star Trek
There’s a whole new quadrant out there! Star Trek was one of the big winners at last month’s SDCC. The next year will bring two animated series, of which Lower Decks will offer a more adult approach in the diversifying franchise, the return of Discovery as it heads further into the future for its third year, and the return to The Next Generation universe. Picard surprised everybody with its promised references to continuity – even as it’s offering a Star Trek series we’ve never seen before, its nod to the past have reminded us all how have important Star Trek’s 1980s rebirth really was.
We not the type to wish our lives away, but we just can’t wait for what Star Trek has in store – and we haven’t even got onto the big screen, where it’s looking more and more likely that Quentin Tarantino will take the helms of the Enterprise… In anticipation, we’re having an August celebrating all things Trek!
Jokerside’s about cartoons as much as long-reads… Find the full set on the cartoons page. These pointy-nosed black n’ white cartoons are powered by Jokertoons.com – where you can now buy or commission unique illustrations and cartoons!
