And so it begins. For the past couple of months StarTrek.com has been previewing IDW Publishing's upcoming five-part miniseries, Star Trek: Harlan Ellison®’s City on the Edge of Forever - The Original Teleplay. The miniseries is based on Ellison's original teleplay for what is widely considered the best Star Trek: The Original Series episode ever produced; however, fans know that Ellison’s full vision did not reach the screen as he intended. His teleplay was modified before the episode was filmed and aired in 1967. IDW's adaptation -- starting with Issue #1, out on Wednesday -- presents Ellison's full saga.
As previously reported by StarTrek.com, Ellison guided writers Scott Tipton and David Tipton (Klingons: Blood Will Tell, Spock: Reflections and the recent TNG/Doctor Who crossover). Meanwhile, J.K. Woodward (Alien Spotlight, the TNG/Doctor Who crossover) created the interior art and Juan Ortiz (the Star Trek: The Original Series Art Prints) handled the cover art. Additionally, Paul Shipper (Khan) has created variant covers.
