August IDW Publishing Trek Comics



IDW Publishing has announced its comics release schedule and three Star Trek comics are on the list.

The comics include Star Trek #36, Star Trek: Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge of Forever #3, and Star Trek: New Visions #2: Time’s Echo.

In Star Trek #36, part two of The Q Gambit continues the story of the [Abrams-verse] Enterprise crew’s meeting with Q. In this tale, “the crew of the Enterprise [is] thrust into the future of their new timeline thanks to the mysterious being known as Q. But in this alternate reality, what has become of the space station once known as Deep Space Nine…and the man called Benjamin Sisko?”

Overseen by Roberto Orci, Star Trek #36 was written by Mike Johnson, and features art and cover by Tony Shasteen. The thirty-two page issue will sell for $3.99.

Star Trek: Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge of Forever #3 continues Harlan Ellison‘s teleplay. In this issue, “stranded in the past of old Earth, Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock search for the focal point that altered the timestream and changed everything about the universe they knew. And once they find her, they could find themselves foiled by a force even greater than the Guardians of Forever–love!”

Written by Ellison, Scott Tipton, and David Tipton; City on the Edge of Forever #3 features art by J.K. Woodward, and a cover by Juan Ortiz. The thirty-two page issue will sell for $3.99.

Star Trek: New Visions #2: Time’s Echo continues John Byrne‘s photonovel adventures. In this issue, “from the raging heart of the galaxy comes a message that summons the crew of the Starship: Enterprise on their most bizarre and dangerous mission. A message sent by their own captain…ten centuries earlier!”

Written by and featuring art and photo-manipulation by Byrne, Star Trek: New Visions #2: Time’s Echo is forty-eight pages in length, and will sell for $7.99.

    There’s the Abramsverse standing on its own two feet again. Heckuva job, Bob, heckuva job.

  • milojthatch

    What the hell? Why do I even ask, it’s Bob Orci’s “Star Trek”, of course it’s gonna suck.

    Do something original Bob and stop playing in other writer’s sandboxes!

  • Blue Thunder

    It could be worse. Vic Mignogna could have written it.

  • Theragen Derivative

    Those who cannot do, reboot.

  • milojthatch

    Enough with the Vic Mignogna hate. I get it, you really don’t like him. Seriously, move on, it’s just a fan film thing anyway. Not the same as the official thing from Paramount or CBS TV. With so many fan films out there (and more it seems being made every year), if you don’t like one, just keep watching till you like another. I’ve read your complaints a zillion times, but buddy, you have to move on. There is a point where it starts eating away at your soul and it’s just not worth it. These things are more for fun anyway and how can you have fun if your ego is getting in the way?

    PS: Not that I’m a fan of Vic’s per say (I’m actually neutral about him), but I personally enjoyed the Star Trek: Continues pilot episode WAY more than anything JJ-Trek related. Just my opinion and not saying that it was amazing or anything, just that it was more “Star Trek” I felt than this JJ-Trek drivel. That said, I’m more hopeful that Renegades doesn’t suck. I want to like that show, we’ll just have to wait and see how it turns out.

  • milojthatch

    I so bet we get yet another reboot after the next film. *sigh*

  • Daniel Ireland

    Hah… Don’t waste your time. You’ll get a response somewhere along the lines of, “everyone is entitled to a opinion” regardless if no one wants to hear it lol.

  • Blue Thunder

    For starters…

    One – I don’t have an ego(unlike Vic, Sky Conway, Alec Peters, the staff at FF, and the writer of TTI).

    Two – pretty much what Daniel Ireland said about a certain Montgomery Scott quote.

    Three – while I can relate to a point about some of the faults in the Abrams universe, I could say the same about the constant hate and vitriol toward J.J. Abrams,Robert Orci, and whoever else was involved in the first two prequel reboots
    (I.e. ENOUGH WITH THE ABRAMSVERSE HATE – the rest of us get it).

    Four – judging by the look,feel, and some of the people involved in Renegades, it’s a DUD waiting to happen.

  • bydefault

    Or more along the lines of “He tasks me. He tasks me, and I shall have him. I’ll chase him round the Moons of Nibia and round the Antares Maelstrom and round Perdition’s flames before I give him up!”

  • nevilleross

    Hey dummy, this is a reboot of Star Trek-of course, they’re going to retell the original stories. But they’re also telling original stories like in issues 33-34, or have you been under a rock?

  • nevilleross

    And those who can’t accept that a media franchise/IP has to change/adapt will always bitch like babies about ‘teh purity’ of said franchise/IP being ‘violated’ by whatever changes that have to be made, because that’s all that they can do. Oh well, enjoy being left behind by the rest of the world who enjoys the current version of the franchise.
