Today at the IDW Publishing panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the cover for Star Trek: Voyager: Mirrors And Smoke, made its first appearance.
In Mirrors and Smoke, the Mirror Universe’s “Captain Janeway of the Voyager, [is on] a rebel ship stranded in the Delta Quadrant, far from the ruins of the Terran Empire. When Janeway crowns herself Pirate Queen of the Quadrant, the locals – including scavengers Neelix and Kes – won’t give up without a fight. Amid this conflict, the crew of the Voyager has a second problem on their hands: just who is the Terran calling herself Annika Hansen, and can she be trusted?”
G.I. Joe writer Paul Allor wrote the story for the comic, while the art and cover come from J.K. Woodward.
“As a child, Star Trek taught me about the power of exploration, the value of kindness and empathy, and the triumph of intelligence and logic over violence and anger,” said Allor. “And now, I am so excited to throw all of those values out the window and tell the story of the Mirror Universe Voyager crew pillaging and plundering its way across the far reaches of space.”
“I was very excited when IDW approached me about working on a Mirror Voyager story,” said Woodward. “I’d given considerable thought to what a Voyager crew would be like in the Mirror Universe, and based the look of the characters on designs I’d already completed. With suggestions from IDW and CBS, we developed new ideas and alterations to create a look that I think exceeds anything we’ve done previously.”
Star Trek: Voyager: Mirrors and Smoke will appear this October as a one-shot issue. After that, there will be monthly IDW Publishing MU comics that will also feature the original series and Deep Space Nine.
