September will see the release of two new Star Trek comics, and in October, fans of Khan will see a new series based on Khan’s time on Ceti Alpha V.
The comics for September are Star Trek: Captain’s Log: Pike #1 and Star Trek: Burden of Knowledge #4. The new Khan comic will be called Khan: Ruling in Hell.
Star Trek: Captain’s Log: Pike #1 is the story of what happens to Captain Christopher Pike and his crew after the events in The Menagerie. Pike and the crew have been “called back to Earth for a debriefing. Upon entering our solar system, they are attacked by a suspicious spacecraft, could this episode somehow be linked to Talos, and what eventually awaits Captain Pike?”
Written by Stuart Moore with art and cover by J.K. Woodward, the thirty-two page issue will cost $3.99 and will debut on September 22.
In Star Trek: Burden of Knowledge #4, “Captain Kirk and the Enterprise return to the site of a previous mission, where they make a shocking discovery, one that may force James T. Kirk to make a decision like no other! It all comes together here!”
Written by Scott & David Tipton, with art by Federica Manfredi and cover by Joe Corroney, the thirty-two page issue will cost $3.99 and will show up in stores on September 8.
TrekMovie.com is reporting a new Star Trek comic series from IDW to debut in October, which will explore Khan’s time on Ceti Alpha VI after Space Seed, but before Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. According to IDW, the new series will answer the question “What has happened between these two points in time to so radically alter what seemed to be an unbreakable will?”
The first of the four-issue series, written by Scott & David Tipton, will be released on October 13. Art will be by Fabio Mantovani and covers by Joe Corroney and Michael Stribling.
