IDW Announces ‘Star Trek’ Movie Sequel Prologue Comic ‘Countdown To Darkness’

If the sight of the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer has left you feeling as if you can’t wait until May to find out more about the mysterious John Harrison and the threat he poses to the Federation, don’t worry; the story actually gets started next month as IDW launches Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness, an official prologue to the new movie.

Scripted by Mike Johnson from a story by Star Trek Into Darkness co-writer Roberto Orci, Countdown to Darkness features art by the wonderful David Messina and follows the pattern of the earlier Countdown mini that trailed JJ Abrams’ first Star Trek to provide another four-issue introduction to next summer’s second installment of the sci-fi reboot.

“We were thrilled by the reception that the original Countdown prequel comic received in 2009,” Johnson enthused in the press release announcing the series. “We’re excited to be working again with David Messina and the team at IDW to bring fans an all-new original story that leads directly into the next film. Star Trek is back in a big way in 2013!”

The first issue of Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness is released January, 2013. Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters on May 17, 2013.
