Four Star Trek comics will be released by IDW Publishing in July.
The comics include Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, Star Trek New Visions Special: The Cage, Star Trek #59 — Altered Encounters #1, and Star Trek, Vol. 12.
Star Trek: Starfleet Academy is a “bold new chapter for Star Trek, as it depicts what life is like for cadets at the galaxy’s greatest school. Readers will witness the student days of the iconic cast before they joined the Enterprise, as well as meet an all-new group of students as they embark on bold new adventures of their own.”
Written by Mike Johnson and Ryan Parrott, with art and a cover by Derek Charm, the one-hundred-and-twenty page issue will sell for $19.99.
John Byrne‘s latest photomanipulated comic is Star Trek New Visions Special: The Cage. In this comic, also written by Byrne, the original series episode The Cage is reinterpreted and adapted into an extra-length comic book tale.
The fifty-two page issue will cost $7.99.
Next up is the all-new Star Trek #59 — Altered Encounters #1. In this first of a two-part series, “Captain Kirk and the crew encounter… themselves?”
Written by Mike Johnson, with art and a cover by Tony Shasteen, the thirty-two page issue will cost $3.99 and there will be a subscription variant cover by Josh Adams and a ROM variant cover by Drew Moss.
Wrapping up July will be Star Trek, Vol. 12. In this issue, “the U.S.S. Enterprise is now midway through her five-year voyage into uncharted space, and Captain Kirk and crew are about to encounter their strangest discovery yet…themselves in the Mirror storyline Live Evil. Then, the crew faces off with a renegade faction of Orions intent on disrupting the truce between their species and the Federation in Reunion!”
