IDW Publishing will officially launch its epic Star Trek/Green Lantern comic book crossover at Comic-Con in San Diego on July 9, and they've also just announced two additional Star Trek comic book projects that will debut in 2015. Up first, and out in October, will be Star Trek #50. It will mark one of the longest-running Trek comic-book series produced by any publisher. Mike Johnson, veteran Trek comic book writer, will craft the special anniversary issue, which will start with a three-part adventure that will introduce the "Mirror/Mirror" storyline into the alternative reality universe of the current Trek films.
“The fan enthusiasm surrounding Starfleet Academy, much like Harry Potter’s Hogwarts, or X-Men’s Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, shows that the educational lives of our most beloved heroes makes for fantastic stories,” said IDW editor Sarah Gaydos. “I am so excited to flesh out a new chapter in the lives of the Enterprise crew, while introducing you to a great new team of recruits - - ready to boldly go!”
For those attending Comic-Con, be sure to join Mike Johnson, Derek Charm and Sarah Gaydos on Friday, July 10 (4PM-5PM) for the IDW: The Best Panel On Recorded History, where they will discuss these Star Trek projects and more.
