IDW Publishing is commemorating Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary with Star Trek: Boldly Go, a new ongoing series hitting shelves this October. Boldly Go will follow the events of Star Trek: Beyond, the franchise’s latest film (hitting theaters this weekend).
The series reunites writer Mike Johnson with artist Tony Shasteen, a “fan-favorite Trek team.”
Star Trek editor Sarah Gaydos:
“What better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of STAR TREK? And what better team to do it with? Mike and Tony are poised to take the series in such an exciting direction. I can’t wait to introduce the world to these new characters… as well as some interesting friends and foes from the past.”
Chronicling the adventures of Captain Kirk and his iconic crew, a danger unlike anything the Federation has faced before threatens our heroes as they explore new worlds and encounter new species. All that plus brand-new uniforms for the crew!
Boldly Go replaces the current Trek comic, which will end at issue 60.
