Are the holidays here already? Apparently, they are over at IDW Publishing, as they’ve just unveiled their Star Trek comic books for December. So, StarTrek.com is getting in the spirit and sharing details about those titles and also First Looks at their covers.
The epic mashup Star Trek vs. Transformers #4 brings together writers John Barber and Mike Johnson, along with artist Philip Murphy, who’s also rendered the cover. The synopsis is as follows: With the Enterprise disabled by the Klingon-Decepticon alliance, things look dire for Spock, Optimus Prime and the landing team. But with the Autobots’ help, can Captain Kirk come up with a solution to save the day from a massive Cybertronian threat?
Star Trek vs. Transformers #4 will run 32 pages and cost $3.99. Fans should be on the lookout for variant covers by Priscilla Tramontano and George Caltsoudas.
Also on the sleigh, er, on the way for December is Star Trek: The Next Generation: Terra Incognita #6. Written by the tandem of Scott Tipton & David Tipton, with art by Angel Hernandez and a Tony Shasteen cover, the latest installment of The Next Generation Mirror Universe saga – set during Star Trek: The Next Generation’s fourth season -- comes to a twisted conclusion as Mirror Barclay unleashes his fiendish plan on Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D.
Star Trek: The Next Generation: Terra Incognita #6 will run 32 pages and cost $3.99. Elizabeth Beals and J.K. Woodward are creating variant covers, and IDW will also offer a photo cover.
And lastly, there’s Star Trek: New Visions, Vol. 8, the final volume of writer and photo-manipulator John Byrne’s Star Trek teleplay series. Presenting all-new tales set in the Star Trek: The Original Series universe and done in a unique photomontage style, using images from the classic TV series, Byrne’s New Visions books are as close as fans will ever come to getting new episodes featuring the original cast. Vol. 8 – which will span 128 pages and cost $17.99 – will feature the stories “The Enemy of My Enemy,” “An Unexpected Yesterday,” and a reinterpretation and adaptation of the TV episode “The Cage.”
