Comics update

IDW have announced their March solicitations, and it's all new-timeline stuff in their Star Trek comics. The ongoing series continues its origin stories phase with a Scotty story for the nineteenth issue:


Written by Mike Johnson, art by Claudia Balboni, covers by Tim Bradstreet, plus a photo-cover.
The lead up to this Spring's STAR TREK film sequel continues here, in this official prequel mini-series overseen by writer/producer Roberto Orci. Captain Kirk and his crew will face an all-new adversary that threatens the future of the entire Federation. An exclusive all-new story that sets the stage for the upcoming movie!
The fourth omnibus for the ongoing series is also out in March:
The countdown to the Star Trek movie sequel continues here! In "The Redshirt's Tale," experience life on the Enterprise through a redshirt's eyes! Also, find out how Scotty and his alien sidekick Keenser first meet. Plus, an all-new re-imagining of the classic "Mirror Universe" story!
The Into Darkness prequel, Countdown to Darkness, will conclude in April, and Amazon now have a pre-order listing for the omnibus, which like the original Countdown omnibus will come out the same month as the last issue, so you can get the whole thing before the new film comes out.

But before then issue three will be out in March as well, and it looks like this:


Written by Mike Johnson, art by David Messina, covers by David Messina, plus a photo-cover.
The lead up to this Spring's STAR TREK film sequel continues here, in this official prequel mini-series overseen by writer/producer Roberto Orci.
