McCoy Origins blurb

IDW have released their solicitations for January, which include the first issue of Countdown to Darkness, which got an advance preview last week, the second Assimilation2 omnibus, which appeared on Amazon some time ago, and the latest issue of the ongoing series, the cover of which was also released last week. The blurb is new though, for this first issue in a run of origin stories:
As the release of the next STAR TREK film gets closer, the ongoing series focuses on the never-been-seen origins of the Enterprise crew in the new movie timeline! First up is Doctor Leonard "Bones" McCoy: find out how the cantankerous miracle worker found himself on a shuttle to Starfleet Academy with James T. Kirk! With a story overseen by STAR TREK writer/producer Roberto Orci, this all-new tale sets the stage for the upcoming film!
The solicitation gives Claudia Balboni as the artist, although the cover at the moment credits Stephen Molnar.

Meanwhile over on Amazon a listing has now appeared for the fourth omnibus book for the ongoing series. This will likely contain issues 13-16, and is due in March.
