IDW's June Star Trek comics

IDW have released their June solicitations, which include two new Star Trek comics: The second part of the latest nuTrek ongoing story, which this month's solicitations reveal is intriguingly titled Lost Apollo, and the first issue of the comic book adaptation of Harlan Ellison's The City on the Edge of Forever (which you can find out much more about in my previous article). To celebrate the launch of IDW's new Angry Birds comics, the nuTrek issue is one of several IDW titles in June to feature variant Angry Birds covers.

Written by Mike Johnson. Art by Joe Corroney. Cover by Corroney, or Angry Birds subscription variant by Craig Rousseau.
"Lost Apollo" concludes here! Stranded on an alien world and cut off from the Enterprise, Spock and Bones must work together to save Captain Kirk from a fate worse than death... a fate tied to the earliest days of humanity's journey to the stars! Overseen by STAR TREK writer/producer Roberto Orci, this all-new adventure continues the Five Year Mission between the new movies!

Joe Corroney also posted a little sneak peak at his interior art from (presumably) this story, on his Facebook page:


Solicitation for The City on the Edge of Forever continues after the jump:

Harlan Ellison’s The City on the Edge of Forever #1
Written by Harlan Ellison, and Scott and David Tipton. Art by J.K. Woodward. Cover by Juan Ortiz, or subscription variant by Paul Shipper.
For the first time ever, a visual presentation of the much-discussed, unrevised, unadulterated version of Harlan Ellison’s award-winning Star Trek teleplay script, “The City on the Edge of Forever!” This Hugo- and Writer’s Guild of America Award-winning teleplay has been much discussed for decades but only here can you see the story as Mr. Ellison originally intended!
