July looks to be a busy month for the folks at IDW Publishing, as they've got an armada of Star Trek comic book titles on the way, with variants—in some cases multiple variants—of each one. And today, StarTrek.com has exclusive First Looks at what's to come. First up is Star Trek/Green Lantern #1, which kicks off the blockbuster six-part crossover from writer Mike Johnson and artist Angel Hernandez. In the saga, which will be called The Spectrum War, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise meets the Green Lantern Corps for the first time, with Kirk and Spock making a most unusual discovery on a lost world, in the process igniting events that will change the fate of empires.Star Trek/Green Lantern #1 will run 32 pages and cost $3.99. Variants will feature covers by Francesco Francavilla, Elsa Charretier, Ethan Van Sciver, Barry Kitson and Garry Brown, as well as a blank sketch variant. Brown has actually created six connecting variant covers, one for each issue, that will ultimately form one giant image.

Up next is Star Trek #47 - Five-Year Mission. In the mind-bending conclusion of The Tholian Webs, one crew member makes the ultimate sacrifice in order to save the Enterprise. The all-new re-imagining of the classic TOS episode is written by Mike Johnson, with art by Rachael Stott and a cover by Joe Corroney. It'll run 32 pages and cost #3.99. The EC Comics subscription variant will feature a cover by Derek Charm.

Finally, there's Star Trek New Visions: 1971/4860.2, the latest title from photo manipulator extraordinaire John Byrne. In it, Captain Kirk sets off on a solo mission that will take him 200 years into his own past, but he won't be alone for long, not with Gary Seven back in action. Star Trek: New Visions: 1971/4860.2 will run 48 pages and cost $7.99.
