TrekComic120913

A new Star Trek comic is a sequel to an original series episode.

The comic, Star Trek Annual 2013, is a “one-of-a-kind” fotonovel.

In the Star Trek Annual 2013, James T. Kirk saved his ship years ago, but “the price was the life of his oldest friend in Starfleet – or was it?” Kirk and his crew face a “staggering discovery in a brand-new episode” of the original series.

Written by and featuring art and cover by John Byrne, the Star Trek Annual 2013 is forty-eight pages in length and will cost $7.99. Expect it in stores on December 18.

    Intriguing! John Byrne is a very capable writer. I’m sure he will write an interesting story and do the old series justice since he won’t *ahem* Lindehof all over it just for the sake of marking it as his own. I offer as evidence the fact that he knows that Delta Vega is a very distant, borderline hospitable world with an automated fuel station and not AN ICE PLANET WITHIN CLEAR VIEWING DISTANCE OF VULCAN.

    Byrne is a great Trek writer and I’ve enjoyed all of his work so far… but these sample pages are pretty weak. I had high hopes for this annual, but this just comes off as goofy.

  • milojthatch

    Yay! An attempt at actual Star Trek again! More please!

  • Daniel Ireland

    Wait… so for it to be actual Star Trek it has to be recycled images from already existing Star Trek? Some of you really are against anything new, huh?

  • Dandru

    No, you’re missing the point. Of late, IDW has only been publishing comics based on Abrams’ Trek films. Milo was just happy to see classic Trek being revisited. So relax.

  • Daniel Ireland

    What makes you think I wasn’t already relaxed when poking fun? Yeesh.

  • milojthatch

    Not really. I was excited when the then new show Deep Space Nine first aired. Same for Voyager and Enterprise when they were both new. In fact, JJ-Trek is literally the only new “Trek” I’ve never cared for.

  • Daniel Ireland

    I know, I know. I’ve seen some of your other comments. It just seems like a lot of people are overly negative about the JJ films. I just like it all :)

  • Dandru

    Because it’s obvious you misunderstood and were getting uppity.

  • Daniel Ireland

    Nope!

  • Enrique

    You’re fooling no one, dude.

  • Enrique

    Agreed. This looks pretty bad.

  • milojthatch

    I was once like you. I too liked it all. And then I saw that damn 2009 film. Changed my Trek fandom forever!

  • trekfan

    Same here.

  • trekfan

    An interesting concept. I like it. But forty-eight pages in length? Not forty-seven? I bet there must be a mistake. :)

  • Daniel Ireland

    Good. Wasn’t trying to :)

  • Daniel Ireland

    Don’t get me wrong, I can’t see myself enjoying anything new more than TNG and DS9 but I enjoy the JJ stuff for different reasons.

  • Kang the Unbalanced

    I liked the 2009 film. I don’t like the insult to my intelligence that is Star Trek Into Fanwank. I’m glad to see other writers coming onboard for the next one, and hope the hell it doesn’t get Lindehoffed.

  • Kang the Unbalanced

    One’s a two-page centerfold of Ricardo Montalban’s chest.

  • trekfan

    That explains it. :D
