IDW Publishing’s Star Trek XI movie adaptation comic mini-series will arrive in stores on Wednesday.
The adaptation of last year’s Star Trek movie will include deleted scenes, a preview of which can be seen at io9, as well as brand-new material.
IDW Publishing described the new comic mini-series. “J.J. Abrams‘ blockbuster revitalization of the Star Trek franchise was the most thrilling film of the year. Now, under the direction of Abrams and screenwriters Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman, comes the highly anticipated graphic adaptation of the film! Additionally, new scenes and moments cut from the movie are revealed-an event no Star Trek fan can dare miss!”
The Star Trek Movie Adaptation comic mini-series is written by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, Tim Jones and Mike Johnson. David Messina is the artist.
Issue #2 will be released in March and will “follow young Kirk and Spock on their journey towards Starfleet Academy.” Fans will see “Kirk’s first encounter with the USS Enterprise.”
In April, issue #3 will arrive on store shelves and Kirk and Spock will meet at Starfleet Academy for the first time.
