IDW November comics, and other comic bits

IDW have released their November solicitations, which include two new Star Trek titles, and an omnibus. Continue down the page for the covers and blurbs for those. But first, some other comics news:

J.K. Woodward tweeted the follow preview of image of an AMAZING wrap-around cover for the forthcoming Assimilation2 hardcover omnibus (the complete TNG/Doctor Who crossover series):


Slightly confusingly, that omnibus already had new cover art released, by the Sharp Brothers, maybe their single page design is for the title page?

Amazon have recently added a listing for another omnibus on the way from IDW. Due in December is, Who Killed Captain Kirk?, the fifth book in their Classics series. Like previous books in the series, this appears to be a straight copy of a previous release; in this case DC Comics' 1993 omnibus which contained a seven-issue run from the end of DC's first TOS series. Currently the new version is sporting the same cover art work as the original, with the Classics banner added on top, which is also consistent with other books in the series.

Which concludes the other news, so, November's Star Trek comics:

Star Trek (ongoing) #27
Written by Mike Johnson. Art by Erfan Fajar. Covers by Erfan Fajar, Garrie Gastonny, plus sketch and photo covers.
The Enterprise faces betrayal from within as the crew tries to prevent the Klingon-Romulan War from spreading to Federation space! The blockbuster Star Trek Into Darkness was just the beginning of these new adventures of Kirk and Spock, overseen by the film's writer producer Roberto Orci!

Khan #2
Written by Mike Johnson. Art by Claudia Balboni. Cover by Paul Shipper, or a photo-cover.
The origin of STAR TREK's greatest villain continues here, in this all-new mini-series overseen by STAR TREK writer/producer Roberto Orci! Witness the never-before-seen outbreak of the legendary Eugenics Wars and behold Khan Noonien Singh's brutal rise to power, as the secret history of the future is finally revealed!

This issue will also be issued with a blank cover, as part of IDW's Artist's Edition Month. I presume the following sketched cover released with the solicitations is meant to represent that:
A blank cover for your favorite artist to draw an original sketch! Celebrating original art! It’s “Artist’s Edition Month!”

Star Trek, Volume 6: After Darkness
Written by Mike Johnson. Art by Erfan Fajar, and Claudia Balboni. Cover by Tim Bradstreet.
Star Trek, Vol. 6 picks up right where this year's blockbuster sequel Star Trek Into Darkness leaves off! Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise face a dire new threat rising in the wake of the movie's momentous events!
