It's Star Trek's 50th anniversary and between the well-received Star Trek Beyond, the fact that all of Trek is available streaming basically everywhere, a new TV show coming next year, and the continued release of new novels and comics, it's a good time to be a fan of the USS Enterprise and its brethren.
Comics have been a part of Trek lore from almost the very start. Beginning in 1967, when the original Trek was wrapping up its first season on NBC, Gold Key published a series that only had two consistent features: an irregular publishing schedule, and an almost total disregard for how the characters actually looked.
Summer 2016 is about to be dominated by Star Trek fever as we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the iconic sci-fi franchise and ramp up to the release of the new feature film Star Trek Beyond and more news continues to trickle in surrounding Bryan Fuller's upcoming CBS digital television Star Trek series due next year.
IDW are a publisher confident that this wave of momentum will continue following the release of the new film, so much so that they are ending their current Star Trek ongoing series and replacing it with a new series telling the further adventures of the USS Enterprise in the wake of the events in Star Trek Beyond.
This week the fans of DC's TV shows finally get to see the live-action comic book crossover that we've all been waiting for, as Melissa Benoist's Supergirl on CBS gets a visit from a new friend from another reality when The CW's The Flash, played by Grant Gustin, makes his first appearance on her show.
We're beyond excited to see what happens when these two DC heroes team-up on the screen, because it looks like the story could capture all the joy of superheroics that sometimes gets lost in other adaptations of the genre. To mark the occasion, we've put together a list of some of Supergirl's best team-up stories in comics, featuring Egyptian queens, unrequited loves, and many, many Draculas.
This weekend at Wondercon, IDW and DC Comics announced a new crossover that will send the Green Lantern Corps to the Star Trek Universe in a story titled Spectrum War this July. Written by long-time Star Trek writer Mike Johnson and penciled by Angel Hernández, the miniseries will feature both the current Corps and the current Enterprise crew from the Chris Pine/Karl Urban film era.
In Rafael Albuquerque and Mike Johnson's Ei8ht, a time-traveler named Joshua crash-lands in the Meld, an illogical place where past, present, and future seem to collide. With frequent jumps back and forth, messages from the past, and flashbacks to the future, it could be very difficult for readers to know when they are, if not for Albuquerque's ingenious use of color.
Over the last twelve days, Dark Horse has thrown a spotlight on twelve new creator-owned titles that they plan to promote at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. The series include the Fight Club sequel from Chuck Palahniuk and Cameron Stewart, a new Hellboy series from Mike Mignola and John Arcudi, and Joëlle Jones and Jamie S. Rich's Lady Killer.
Also in the mix; new series from Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, Rafael Albuquerque, and Cullen Bunn, and sequels to Colder, from Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra, and Alabaster, from Caitlin R. Kiernan and Joëlle Jones.
DC Comics has announced what the third weekly comic series debuting this year will be, and it's going to deal with Earth 2. Earth 2: World's Endwill kick off in October, joining the publisher's already-running weekly series, Batman Eternal, and the weekly series The New 52: Futures End, which debuts May 3.
Much like their (rightly) acclaimed Judge Dredd comics, IDW's handling of the Star Trek license has managed to exceed reader expectations with high production values and an uncanny ability to tell engaging comics stories within the limitations of a tie-in book. Over the last three years, IDW has shifted the comics focus to tell stories from within the world of J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot team's cinematic Star Trek reboot. With the new status quo firmly established, writer Mike Johnson and a team of artists are going to be taking the Enterprise and her crew into all-new directions, starting with a gender-flipped parallel universe. The two-part "Parallel Lives" debuted last week with Star Trek #29 and gives new readers a chance to take a tour with the finest crew in the fleet while seeing them in an all-new light.
We talked to Johnson and artist Yasmin Liang for more information about their two-part Trek adventure, and got an inside look at the ins-and-outs of how they approach working on a license with such heavy fan expectations.
His identity was a matter of speculation for months, but now that the release of Star Trek: Into Darkness is safely a couple months behind us, IDW is releasing a brand-new, six-issue miniseries to offer up the details of big bad Khan Noonien Singh's origin. Writer Mike Johnson and artist Claudia Balboni will work with Roberto Orci, one of the screenwriters of the movie, to tie the series into the film.
Saturday's first major San Diego Comic-Con panel from DC Comics covered Superman. The event was moderated by VP - Marketing John Cunningham, and featured artist Shane Davis (Superman: Earth One), writer Scott Lobdell (Superman), co-writer Mike Johnson (Supergirl) and editor Matt Idelson...
