Fans wanting to know more about Star Trek into Darkness‘ villain will be able to do so with the release of Star Trek: Khan.
Star Trek: Khan will “show intrepid readers just how the master villain of Star Trek Into Darkness became the intergalactic menace seen in the blockbuster film,” and will unlock the superhuman’s secrets.
“Much like the way the Star Trek: Countdown comic book and our follow-up Nero miniseries helped flesh out that character after the first Star Trek movie,” said Chris Ryall, IDW‘s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief, “Khan will add dimension and depth to this new iteration one of the most classic villains in all of Star Trek lore.”
“We’re traveling back in time to show Khan’s rise to power and give fans their first look at the legendary Eugenics Wars,” said Star Trek: Khan Writer Mike Johnson. “As the series unfolds we will see the events that led to Khan leaving Earth aboard the Botany Bay, and then jump forward to witness his awakening in the future by Admiral Marcus.”
Star Trek: Khan, written by Johnson and overseen by Roberto Orci, with art by Claudia Balboni, will be released this October as a six-part series.
