DS9 comics! DS9 comics! DS9 comics!

At last, as our friend Nero likes to say "the wait is over", or nearly over at least: Comics Continuum have posted IDW's solicitations for December which include three Star Trek titles, comprised of the second issue of TNG's Ghosts, the Cardassian focused post-Dominion war final Alien Spotlight and the first issue of a new DS9 series, by the Tiptons no less!

Alien Spotlight: Cardassians
Written by Andy Schmidt, art and cover by Augustin Padilla.
Set just after the Dominion War, a black-ops band of Cardassian fundamentalists infiltrate a Starfleet Prison to assassinate the leader of the Dominion ... the founder responsible for 800 million Cardassian deaths. But if justice is done, will the fallout with Starfleet plunge the Cardassians back into war? Guest-starring classic DS9 characters Kira and Garak!
Ghosts #2
Written by Zander Cannon, art by Javier Aranda, covers by Joe Corroney.
The negotiations to end the civil war on Allios IV continue while Worf investigates the history of the less advanced of the two civilizations. Meanwhile, Picard is rattled by being identified as one of the phantoms that haunts a seriously wounded researcher they rescued from a marooned orbiter, and Troi, Geordi, and Dr. Crusher investigate the mysteries of what caused the accident. Fool's Gold #1
Written by Scott and David Tipton, art by Fabio Mantovani, covers by The Sharp Brothers.
Captain Sisko and the crew of Deep Space Nine make their triumphant return to comics! When the station begins to be overrun by thieves, treasure-seekers, bounty-hunters and other assorted ne'er-do-wells, Major Kira and Constable Odo must find out why. Can they get to the bottom of it before the station's new visitors bring things to a boiling point?
