IDW To Publish Star Trek Into Darkness Countdown Prequel

Again, from last week’s IDW solicitations, but possibly worthy of a higher profile. And a fixed image so it is a little less piratey. IDW are publishing a new Countdown prequel series to the new Star Trek Into Darkness movie, just as they did for the first new one. That comic, Star Trek Countdown, represented IDW’s first serious selling digital comic. Since then, the digital comic market has expanded somewhat and it’s very likely we’ll see new records ahead of the second movie. With Star Trek Countdown To Darkness, written by Michael Johnson who wrote the original mini-series and now writes Supergirl.

STAR TREK COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS #1

(W) Mike Johnson (A/CA) David Messina
The countdown to the motion picture event of 2013 begins here, in this blockbuster 4-issue prequel mini-series that sets the stage for the upcoming STAR TREK film! Like the best-selling STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN in 2009, this all-new series leads directly into the next movie, with a story by STAR TREK writer/producer Roberto Orci and Mike Johnson (STAR TREK ongoing series), and drawn by the original STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN artist, David Messina! STAR TREK 2013 PREQUEL is the can’t-miss lead-in to the new adventures of the Enterprise crew!

$3.99

But with this kind of Karl Urban action, it does set me thinking… is a Star Trek/Dredd crossover on the cards at all, considering IDW publish both?
