October Star Trek Comics from IDW

Hey everyone! Some news today regarding upcoming comics from IDW, specifically the issues being released in October!

First up, we have issue two of the Star Trek vs. Transformers series, with three covers. The A cover, by artist Philip Murphy, features Captain Kirk beaming into the midst of a battle between Optimus Prime and his Decepticon foe. The B cover by artist Marcelo Ferreira is similar, but features Spock in the background. And finally, the retail incentive cover by Derek Charm is a relatively calmer scene, with Optimus Prime giving the Vulcan salute to Spock and Arex while Kirk looks on.

Here's the publisher description:
The Enterprise is burning, brought down by the united forces of the Klingons and Decepticons. Captain Kirk and Optimus Prime have a plan to strike back, but can they bring their scattered Starfleet crew and Autobots together before Megatron wipes them out? The no-holds-barred Saturday morning mash-up continues!

Star Trek vs. Transformers #2 is written by John Barber and Mike Johnson with art by Philip Murphy.



October also sees the release of the fourth issue in the Terra Incognita series. There are four covers associated with this title, with the first by artist Tony Shasteen featuring Will Riker with his signature "leg up on the console" maneuver and Wesley Crusher. The B cover is a photo montage, again with Riker and Wesley, followed by a pair of retailer incentive covers: one from artist Elizabeth Beals featuring Picard, Crusher, and Data in their Dixon Hill personas from the episode "The Big Goodbye," and other spectacular piece by J.K. Woodward.

Here's the publisher description:
On the heels of the blockbuster THROUGH THE MIRROR mini-series comes a brand-new NEXT GENERATION series, featuring untold tales of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D! Wesley Crusher finds himself in a situation outside his comfort zone and must rise to the challenge.

Finally, if you noticed some connectivity issues with the site recently, it's because I'm in the process of switching things over to a new custom domain name. I've been having a couple of issues with it, and in the meantime, there will be a few broken links for the next day or so. Hopefully I should have all the issues sorted soon, though! Look for the new Treklit.com, coming soon!
