Star Trek Discovery: The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not For The Lamb’s Cry.

Here’s the trailer for next week’s Star Trek Discovery episode on Netflix – it’s called The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not For The Lamb’s Cry.  Watching the trailer, we’re fairly sure that it’s nothing to with lamb chops, though. Moral ambiguity, probably. But that’s the Federation at war for you!

It’s a survey of the effect of World War II on the American comicbook industry, including Kirby, […]
