In January, IDW Publishing is celebrating its twentieth anniversary with a weekly event beginning in January.
In this event, various comic lines will feature an issue set twenty years in the future, or twenty years in the past.
Included in the event are the following comics: Ghostbusters, Jem and the Holograms, My Little Pony, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Star Trek.
“An anniversary like the one IDW is celebrating is a cause to look to the future and the past,” said IDW‘s Editor-in-Chief John Barber. “It gives us a moment to reflect on where came from and where we’re going, because both directions are pretty exciting. We’re lucky to have partners like Hasbro, Nickelodeon, CBS Consumer Products, and Sony to share in the celebration — and to have these five sets of characters that have helped place IDW at the center of the pop culture universe!”
Here is the description of the Star Trek IDW 20/20 comic: “Twenty years before he took command of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D, Jean-Luc Picard sat in the captain’s chair of the U.S.S. Stargazer. Picard served with distinction aboard the Stargazer for many years on his way to becoming the most respected captain in Starfleet. But in this early mission, Picard shows us a vulnerable side as well as glimpses of the brilliant tactician he would become.”
Star Trek IDW 20/20 will be written by Peter David, and will feature art by J.K. Woodward.
