Is it summer already? Didn’t we just change the clocks? Well, the AC is on at IDW Publishing, which just released details about a trio of Star Trek comic books set for release in June, namely Star Trek #10, Star Trek/Doctor Who: Assimilation #2 and Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes.
Star Trek #10 is written by Mike Johnson, with art by Stephen Molnar and a cover by Tim Bradstreet. The story, which concludes the “The Return of the Archons” reimagining, follows Captain Kirk and the Enterprise crew as they unravel the mystery of a lost Starfleet vessel that may hold the key to the galaxy’s future. Star Trek (2009) writer-producer Roberto Orci has overseen Star Trek #10, which runs 32 pages and will sell for $3.99. Variants will include a sketch cover and a Bradstreet sketch cover.
Star Trek TNG/Doctor Who: Assimilation #2 is the second installment in IDW’s epic Trek/Who crossover. In it, the Federation’s most-terrifying enemy (that’d be the Borg) strikes an unholy alliance with one of the Doctor’s most-hated antagonists (the Cybermen, of course), resulting in devastation on a cosmic scale. Scott & David Tipton wrote Assimilation #2 with Tony Lee, while J.K. Woodward handled the art and Woodward and Mark Buckingham did the cover. The book runs 32 pages and will cost $3.99, while variants will include a wrap-around cover photo and an “Enterprise crew in the TARDIS” cover by Joe Corroney.
Finally, there’s Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes. This graphic novel gathers together the individual Trek/Legion adventures, which were written by Chris Roberson, with art by Jeffrey Moy and a cover by Phil Jimenez. All direct-market, first-printing copies will include a Keith Giffen dust jacket. Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes will cost $19.99.
