Star Trek #56—Legacy of Spock, Part Two and Star Trek: The Classic UK Comics, Vol. 1 will be released by IDW Publishing on Wednesday. StarTrek.com has details and artwork from both titles. Star Trek #56 -- Legacy of Spock is by Mike Johnson, with Tony Shasteen handling the art and cover. A special story celebrating Star Trek's 50th anniversary, Legacy of Spock, Part Two finds Spock Prime reflecting on the alternate timeline he left behind... but he faces a new threat in the present, as the Romulan Empire threatens to end the Vulcans' search for a new homeworld before it begins. The issue, which runs 32 pages and costs $3.99, is part of IDW’s “Art Appreciation Month” promotion.

Star Trek: The Classic UK Comics, Vol. 1, being published for the first time ever in the U.S., features contributions by writers-artists Harry Lindfield, Jim Baikie and Mike Noble, as well as a cover by Lindfield. Back in 1969, six months before TOS premiered in England, British comics readers were introduced to the characters in an original comic-book series. The stories were serialized, generally 2 to 3 pages at a time, in 257 weekly magazines spanning five years and 37 storylines. These extremely rare comics have never been published in the United States. Trek fans will quickly note that the comics were not written with strict adherence to core Trek concepts, but it's precisely that "offness" that makes them so eminently readable and deserving of a proper reprinting. Star Trek: The Classic UK Comics, Vol. 1 runs 244 pages and costs $49.99.
