SDCC 2022: IDW Launches a new Star Trek comic era with Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing, and Ramon Rosanas
IDW Publishing has announced a bold new direction in Star Trek comics, beginning with a brand-new flagship ongoing oseries that goes where no one has gone before! Debuting in October 2022, Star Trek #1 features art by Ramon Rosanas, and scripts by Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing, the creative team behind Star Trek: Year Five.
Star Trek #1 weaves an epic and unprecedented adventure story that spans the far reaches of the Star Trek multiverse, bringing together characters from across the galaxy—and all eras and variations of the beloved franchise—who must band together to prevent the mysterious murder of the gods.
It’s stardate 2378, and Benjamin Sisko has finally returned from the Bajoran Wormhole omnipotent. But his godhood is failing with every minute. Sent by the Prophets on a mission to the deepest parts of space aboard the U.S.S. Theseus, he witnesses the unthinkable: Someone is killing the gods. And only Sisko and his motley crew of Starfleet members from every era of Trek can stop them.
Star Trek #1 will be available in October with eight variant covers for fans and retailers to enjoy, including Cover A by series artist Ramon Rosanas, Cover B by Declan Shalvey, Cover C by David Aja, Cover D by Rachael Stott, and a sketch Cover E, as well as three additional retailer incentive covers by Rosanas and Francesco Francavilla. Fans will also be delighted to read a Star Trek #1 prelude story from Rosanas, Kelly, and Lanzing in September’s highly-anticipated Star Trek #400, a monumental anthology issue!
