I think IDW may have done more with Star Trek than any other company in recent memory. Marvel did a decent amount, and Malibu had their Deep Space Nine series. Wildstorm seemed like just one big wasted opportunity. However, IDW has literally flooded the market with Star Trek material and produced some pretty interesting stuff, including Assignment Earth (based on the proposed Star Trek spin-off that would follow the second season finale of the same name), and Star Trek Year Four (which was the fourth year of the “five year mission to seek out new life and new civilizations” – the series only made it to 3 seasons). Still, the absolute best Trek series produced by IDW so far, IMHO, is their excellent Star Trek: Countdown series, which successfully bridges the original Trek continuity (and features appearances by many Next Generation alum) to the new movie’s continuity. My only gripe is that the guest stars were wholly from Next Generation, and not any of the other Trek series.
Still, IDW has a follow up to the series coming out this July, set in the new continuity! Check out more information after the jump!
According to Trekweb.com,
IDW publisher Chris Ryall posted in his blog the cover artwork for the second issue of Spock Reflections, an upcoming comic book mini series which is a sequel to the Star Trek Countdown mini series, set in new, post-new movie TOS timeline established by the rebooted continuity, and featuring the Zachary Quinto version of the character.
The series will be written by David and Scott Tipton with art by Star Trek Countdown artist David Messina.
Ryall also mentioned that Messina is already working on a second Countdown spin-off series, but gave no other detail on that yet.
A larger version of the cover can be found here.
So not only do we have Spock Reflections to look forward to, we also get another follow up miniseries (this one sounds more like a direct follow up to Countdown) later this year!
